Does sort of explain what has happened to that expensive imported lamp I ordered for my wife:
Gee, Mr. Selkirk, we're real sorry, but the kite pulling the ship your lamp was on pulled it a little off course and it went aground on Christmas Island. Oh, no, sir, your lamp's just fine! It's just, well, it's just on Christmas island, that's all. Soon as the next monsoon hits we'll get 'er pulled off and try again.......

The thing to invest in is the fuel cells that we will soon be using to power our elctric boat motors.
