<taixzo> So, when I was small, we had a ginger cat named Pandora
<taixzo> She was very full of energy, and would sometimes run around and knock things over
<taixzo> and for a while, our only solution was to shut her in a room
<taixzo> until we had a cardboard box left from a pair of shoes, and she just climbed into that and would happily sit
<taixzo> so we started putting the box out every time she got riled up
<taixzo> And so, Pandora's box was the solution to all our problems.
