But, you're forgetting that with Patrick's time travellers, I can go back
in time to when the hard disk was in the machine and you were absent.
Using some devices developed at Espionage Enterprises, I can take over your
video cameras, causing them to transmit what they saw in the 15 seconds
before I came into the picture. Should you appear, or anyone, my Uzi
submachine guns, which hold 50 rounds/clip and empty in 3-5 seconds,
depending on conditions, will protect me quite fine while I blow up your
safe and edit my favorite object's location, which happens to be the object
Plus, my IR satellites indicate where your hard drive is, and your gf's 2nd
cousin's hubby is actually my brother and is on my side of the
`<obj>.location's have rights too disagreement' (!)

Hey, for security reasons (:P) I didn't tell you everything.
