Ah! Is that what that thingy along the top of the scrren is! I suppose
you use one of those ratty things to access it? 

What about that funny 3d thingy along the left of the screen with the
little arro shape things at each end and the floaty blocky thingy
which moves up and down and gets smaller and smaller the more I write?
I suppose you use the ratty thing for that as well.

And while I'm on the topic, who was the bright spark who introduced a
third hand controlled device for the computer? I'm mean really, was he
some sort of mutant with three arms or something? I've got two
perfectly good feet which do nothing but sit under the desk all
day. I'd much prefer to be kicking some cat around under my desk to
access menus and other pointless GUI widgets than constantly moving
from one control to another with my hand on a rat!
