Not those mice, the real furry, squeaky things with the cheese fixation. I believe they, much like the Jewish Illuminati military- industrial complex, are controlling mankind's future.

My favorite are the Tomtop mice, which I consider very fancy. You plug it in the USB slot, it glows blue. When you move the mouse the glow changes to red. Stop and it returns to blue. Has two buttons plus scroll wheel and retails for $4 including shipping. Having extra lights and 9 more buttons on a mouse is a nice idea, I guess, but I don't see it being worth $165.

You can't put a price on quality, am I right?

I have a donated Microsoft Razer Reclusa mouse and keyboard and have no idea how or why I should configure the extra doo-dads. They look nice tho. Keyboard is a little mushy, but over it.

Anyway, I believe the mice are, in reality, controlling humanity's future. I'll think up some backing arguments and post more in a bit.

I'm afraid you're gonna have to roll a persuasion check with disadvantage for that one.

Well, as they said in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
"The best laid plans of mice," mutters Slartibartfast, knowingly.
"...and men, " adds Arthur, helpfully.
"hmmm?"
"...and men. The best laid plans of mice and men. That's how the saying goes."
"Oh, men," chuckled Slartibartfast. "I don't imagine they had anything to do with it..."

Well HHGG did occur to me as I puzzled out the mice takeover thing. Actually they haven't taken over per se, they've always been there in humankind's background, gently controlling our destinies.

I think the only thing they can't control are cats. That's why we think cats can go anywhere and walk through walls and stuff.

Surprisingly recreational marijuana is not yet legal in N.Y. so we have to assume Aardvark has a doctor's note or he's familiar with Jay street downtown.

I don't need drugs. This stuff happens all by itself.
