Livestock: had a provocative dream
Moof: i had NIGHTMARES
Moof: what was your dream
Livestock: dreamed i was back home and was in the living room
Livestock: and i looked behind a recliner
Livestock: and found a fairly good sized turtle on its back
Livestock: stuck behind the chair
Livestock: so i flipped him over
Livestock: gave him a bug i had in my hand, which he ate
Livestock: then he started talking
Livestock: because turtles are like parrots
Moof: what did he say
Livestock: they can repeat things
Livestock: oh just stuff like "hello"
Livestock: after i would say it of course
Livestock: then tom
Livestock: the next thing you know i'm serving aboard a nuclear submarine
Moof: so it goes
Livestock: and talking to a crewmate about how turtles are like spiders on a submarine, you keep them there to eat the fish and things that get in through cracks
Moof: josh that is a very provocative dream
Livestock: tom i like when a dream is educational and tells you something you didn't know about nature
Moof: yes i do too
Livestock: would love to see a train driven by a bear
Livestock: trains aren't hard to drive so i think a bear could do it
Moof: josh i KNOW a bear could do it
Moof: wouldn't be a problem at all in my mind
Moof: give them a chance to get out of the woods for one
Moof: give them a chance to earn an honest wage
Livestock: we'd have to make sure the trains weren't hauling salmon or bees
Moof: josh that is true
Livestock: maybe some logs would be good so they can rub against them to scratch their backs
Moof: yes some logs or maybe corn
Livestock: i think we've really covered all the basics, let's pitch this idea to marketing
Moof: you got it
Moof: you make a powerpoint
Moof: i am going to drink a beer
Livestock: tom - glad you like this idea, because it is the premise of our next game: Grizzly Engines, the bear train simulator.
Livestock: might rename it Bear Rails
Moof: how does the game work
Livestock: you lay out tracks
Livestock: buy trains to put on them
Livestock: set up trade routes
Moof: so it is transport tycoon
Moof: with bears
Livestock: with bears
Livestock: driving the engines
Moof: josh i think we are onto a winner here
Livestock: tom if i had a boat i would probably go find an chain of islands
Livestock: like on the first day
Moof: then what
Livestock: then i would spend the second day exploring the islands
Livestock: looking for resources, etc.
Moof: and the third??
Livestock: by then i will have discovered oil
Livestock: other minerals
Livestock: i would probably bring in 3rd parties to verify
Livestock: then i would sell mineral rights to corporations
Livestock: make about 30-100 million
Livestock: all with just the modest investment of a boat
Moof: that is why a boat is the smartest investment a person can make
Livestock: it is amazing more people don't buy boats
Moof: it is amazing
Livestock: i guess it would cause inflation
Moof: josh it only causes inflation in rafts
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.

Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
Doing some reps on the water bottle huh. I prefer bench press myself. Just kidding - stay hydrated.
Moof and Livestock discuss life, love, human nature, and all the most important issues affecting humanity.
