    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    The right way. Unless they're facing in the other direction.

    I think JNA meant whose left. Then ofos's answer would have been theirs. That would have resolved that one part of the uncertainty.

    Just the right amount was left. Or so they say.

    Otis says they're not sure about their uncertainty there.

    Like ofos, two of them tend to be uncertain, too.

    I think three is too few, and five seems to be too many. I am therefore for four.
