    It's really cute and a very interesting idea. I can't wait to see where the little guy goes and I hope no one messes with him.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    I started a new thread on hitchBOT's destruction. Looks like there is surveillance footage. I don't know if anyone can be charged but I hope so. Enough people seem to have strong suspicions about who did this.

    Horrible. Survived 27 days in Canada. Survived crossing Holland and Germany. Can't survive a couple weeks in our country though.
