Hey! Who are you calling dense?
Show some respect for your elders. I am 4.5 billion year old. You heard me. BILLION!
Sorry for that little outburst. I blow up from time to time. Well, once, actually. Seems just like yesterday. Had a nasty bump with the atmosphere. Kinda fell apart somewhere over Argentina, oh, about 4000 years ago, give or take a millennium. The natives gave me a swank name. Campo del Cielo.

HAHAHAHAHA I crack me up.
Wait. I’m already cracked!
Oh, boy, I’ve got a million of ‘em.
WAIT! A BILLION!
What? Show’s over? Dang.
