In my town it is usual that when you walk by a house at night, you get spotted by a motion detector and a bright light flicks on. A light like constructionworkers use at dusk. It's a burglar deterrent.

I propose a garden gnome with the motion detector built in.

The light shines out the eyes and they follow you.

       This would completely obliterate the novelty of using psychadelics. +

       ...they have to mumble to each other, too... and giggle, evilly.

       Welsh. Ideal for mumbling in, and making others feel excluded.

       In Cheshire, there's an old nursery rhyme, taught so children as infants; "Taffy was a welshman, Taffy was a thief, Taffy came to my house and stole apiece of beef...."   

       Prejudice against the Welsh in the Marches has diminished over the milennia; it really has, you just need special highly sensetive instrumentation to detect it.

       I've been to Wales. It was like being in England, only better. What beautifull countryside, what lovely sheep, what friendly people. I don't understand this ranting at Wales. Wales is good. It's like New Zealand, only closer to home, a bit colder, a bit smaller, a bit more hospitable.   

       I propose we stop ranting against Wales and every thing Welsh and put this energy in ranting at the devil and his mother.

       Hmm, sounds like [zeno] has been possessed by an evil (Welsh) spirit. Nothing else could account for such deranged babbling.
