You lost me, but that also is part of the MOAB way.
By the way (no, not the MOAB way, just the regular way) nobody commented upon the line in my previous post:
...it's proven impossible to get most of the younger generation to abandon their computer games long enough to engage in anything as esoteric as MOABing.
To the best of my knowledge, that represents the first instance of MOAB being used as a verb*. I have chosen not to pursue obtaining copyright for said usage so you guys can use it as you see fit. After all, expecting to be paid royalties by fellow MOABites just wouldn't be the MOAB way, would it?
* Yeah, I know MOABing is technically a gerund, but one can't have a gerund without first having a verb, can one?
