Everything including the kitchen sink... and Thymbris has lost her head again.

...I'm getting the feeling that Thymbris has an abnormally short FIFO buffer...

Yep, zero short-term memory.

PTerry Pratchett (i think) once wrote that is there was a big red button with a sign on it saying "Danger! Do not press - will cause the end of the world!", the paint on the sign wouldn't have time to dry...

Wait you know that sheep? I thought Sheep from Sheep in the Big City was making a cameo.

Ah, one of the most honorable tropes around... the Do Not Do This Or Else. As Rocky would say, "But that trick never works!"

Back quite some time ago there was the Whiteboard sequence with the Big Red Button which clearly said "For the love of God, DO NOT PRESS THIS BUTTON".

It was, of course, quite irresistable.

Tsillah: "MOOOOOM!!!!! You had one job....."

Question is... What blew the hell up? And did it affect their ability to get back to Atsali and Nadette?
You know that light at the end of the tunnel?

Well, we know several things about Thymbris now :
1) Momma is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
2) She is horrible at instilling confidence in people.
3) She has an attraction to the "bright shinny button".
4) Disaster is her middle name.
5) Shaun the Sheep must hate her.

If this was the Stanford marshmallow experiment she would be eating the marshmallow before the tester could even put it down.

Please don't go down the "Big Red Button" road - it's Sooooooo easy to spend a whole month there, and have nothing to show for it. Just ask Doc Nickel.

There's 15 or 20 scattered over the next month. You could go through following the handy pattern above.

And Yes, I see your post Dave - I got lost in their forum looking for the "One Page" link after starting this... And never did. Oh well.

It is indeed a bad day when you Tsillah is the smartest one you got to send for information and equipment. I am staring to think mom there has only had 2 mortal paranormals ever with her.

In her defense, if I was standing next to two switches with that sign next to them, I'd be flipping them up and down like I was getting paid in about twenty seconds.
