I've said it before, but it apparently needs repeating:

You're talking about a group of people who are paid large sums of money for
their ability to communicate with inanimate objects made of melted sand. Ever
since the first shaman back in caveman days, this skill has been understood to
go hand-in-hand with weirdness and odd behavior ("Father, why does
talks-to-trees hop around humming to himself?" "Because he talks to trees...")

ObNANOG: talks-to-trees is still in the gene pool - his descendants include
talks-to-copper and talks-to-IOS.  Anybody who didn't just fall out of the
tree that talks-to-trees was having a chat with knows this can become an
operational issue....
