The truly perspicacious, or, more likely, those who have been unable to block out my incessent chatter, will notice that one of these things is not like the others, one of these things doesn't belong. All but one relates to the things I prattle about at greath length, given the opportunity. Can you guess which thing is not like the others before I finish this song?
