yes, of course. this kind of thing has been happening for years, it's
not in the least bit unusual or noteworthy.

this is about as remarkable as the discovery that "water is wet!!!!!"
and almost as worthy of discussion.

given that Adam Todd also used to make exactly the same kind of
breathlessly astounded announcements of obvious things about spam that
everyone else knew years before, i think that this pretty much confirms
the theory that Leah Manta is Adam Todd.

it's good enough for me, anyway.
