Fucking loads. Or if not, just look over the screen at their computer. Too many to count.

I reckon the video player could, if it were plugged in. (yeah that’s right, we’ve still got a video player)

I am a man of nature so can use many subtle clues that nature leaves, the rest of you are unlikely to be in-tune with some of them, like the temperature of the rocks, the behavior of the owls and the shade of the water.
