Oy! Who are you calling hooligans! We're just misunderstood - all we
want to do is farm, raise cattle and raid Orlevings. Circumstances beyond
our control have just forced us to defend ourselves with extreme
prejudice. Just think how peaceful you'd be if you had the Malani as your
neighbours...

Well, that raised some old memories - I'd like to propose a minute's
silence for my dear departed Rhino, Blossom. Cut down in her
glorious prime by a huge tarantula just outside skyfall lake <sob>.
