    Caltech!

    But maybe I'm a little biased. If I gotta suffer through the place for four years, I at least wanna feel important!

    Of course not. I already ate them all. Just who do you think I am? "Leave behind a cookie," yeah, right... Sheesh.

    Man... they should make a anime version of a anti cookie monster. Like Godzilla and Kingkong... So you have like Sushi monster in japan vs. Cookie monster in USA, the dual between Tokyo Avenue and Sesame street.

    United States Government.
    Both the internet and the first nuclear bomb were created by US government sponsored projects. The nuclear bomb may be a bad thing but it lead to the creation of nuclear power plants; one of the most environmentally clean sources of power.
