Adopt a Virtual Pet Pebble today! Care for it. Love it!
Not everyone can have a Pet Pebble, much a virtual one. Having a pet is a big responsibility. It's a good thing there are different levels of responsibility for different pets:
It's Easier Yet to have a Virtual Pet Pebble!
Feeding a dog or cat: once a day
Feeding a hampster: once a week fill up its dish
Feed a snake: Yuck!
You can have your Virtual Pet Pebble do tricks!
Adopt a Pet Pebble Today! All it takes is wandering outside, staring
at the ground for a couple of minutes. This of course presumes you're
not at sea, in an airplane, in space, or blind. Find a suitable candidate,
talk to it a while, get to know it, and if you're compatible, adopt it.
Tell it to roll over: it won't, just like an untrained dog.
Tell it to stay and heel: it will perform flawlessly.
Tell it to sit perfectly still so you can take a good long exposure photograph:
Ask about Geology: It will respond with the meaning of Geological Time
Take it for a walk (leash required): it will follow you dutifully.
Warn it about not crapping on the neighbors lawn: it will obey.
Take it to the Park: Other pets won't bother it!
Take it to the movies: you won't have to pay to get it in!
Guaranteed to be a Low Maintenance Pet! Feed and Water your pet once
per Millenium, or more often as your time permits. Enjoy your Virtual
Your Virtual Pet Pebble may seem inanimate, but there's really a heart of gold hiding inside [ Not Literally! Plese don't Harm your Pet Pebble by forcing mitosis on him! (that's a biology joke - non-biologists, just ignore it) ]
Can we be so nearsighted that we would consider this, one of God's own
creations, etched out over the course of Millions of Years, to be less
than a perfect version of itself? Much more than that, it is a Virtual
Pebble, merely a representation of a real pebble, or an idea of a pebble
we hold in our minds. This ability, this creation we hold in our
imagination, is what makes it a Virtual Pet!
Is this wonderful thing, this thing of beauty, this joy Forevermore,
anything less than its own ideal form of itself? No! It is perfectly at
one with it's own existence! It has achieved perfect nirvana, understanding
of itself and it's limitations and beauties. Please, take the time to contemplate
the beauty of this pet. Name it; it's yours. Make it your Pride and Joy!
