tao is dead. you must move on. tao is dead.
but i just evolved the ability to scream in agony while maintaining a neutral facial expression and calm body posture. this is fun. maybe you should get a hobby. are you able to construct a mannequin-tao out of hotplates? maybe i can mail you some of tao's flesh and you can grow multiple tao clones. there are many possibilities. don't give up.
