Here is your new list Ghosty

#1 Quit Procrastinating
Pick your 3 favorite items,
make a plan,

(btw forget #15
if you killed them all then surely something even worse would evolve)

Forget worrying about #10,
eventually you will stop thinking about sex...

in about 80 years!

A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy.
