Sorry, I didn't find this humerous at all and I don't think many of your
fellow Vernians will either. I believed you entirely and was thrilled to
hear that these cylinders were available. I'm sure the people who e-mailed
advice on what to do with the cylinders and who performed some research are
very annoyed as well.
