How bad is it? Should I sacrifice a dove or a feral cat?

Trick question; it will be a feral cat.
Good call, Kriegs. Doves are the wrong animal in this situation. If I'm reading the room correctly, we may need a horse head.

My anecdote :D Walking with a Japanese friend behind a young lady. He couldn't stop chuckling about why she had the symbol for a "gate" tattooed on the back of her neck. Motto: check what the symbol means before hand. PS: Look up what this 4wd model means in Spanish :o https://www.mitsubishi-motors....

I have gigabit fiber coming into the house. It's pretty awesome. Unfortunately it requires a deal with the devil: it's Google Fiber. I've consider routing everything through a VPN of some shape or form, but haven't gotten around to it. And for a laugh, this was our communications up till about 1970...
