The noise produced when this was working was awesome. You literally could not hear someone yelling into your ear.

If you're looking for a pinophyte, Steven, I'll put on my wellingtonias, drive over in my old British Leylandii truck, larch through your door, and solve your monkey puzzle once and for all. So there!
