Wow! You sure have done a lot of interesting things!

I've done some of those things, but I haven't had a chance to work my way completely through the list yet.

Give me a couple of months and I'll report back on my progress ;)

I do know some people who've done some of those things when I was present in the room.

I wonder if that counts for anything.
