It does look very creepy!

I guess it is a good idea to keep some ice and drinking water on hand... ;)

Well, some folks just can't finish a large meal and put the leftovers in the fridge.

I saw this on the "Temu" site: 3000x22 HD binoculars! Who needs any other viewing instrument if you get one of these beauties! :dance:

(PS: the amount of light coming through their 0.007mm exit pupil might provide a bit of a challenge: particularly at night... ;) )

- and for $A14.35 (plus only $A29.95 delivery!) Bargain!

Note the beautifully photo-shopped label too ;)

(Actually the shape and armour looks suspiciously like some of the Steiner bino offerings.)

My accursed neighbor came banging on my front door at two-thirty in the morning last night for some reason.

Good thing I was still up, playing the drums.

I'm not persuaded that that is probable cause. But maybe it depends on where you drive. :confusion-shrug:
