Mnemonic

When you ask him how many years old he is, he turns to you and screams, "I'M A MILLION YEARS OLD AND YOU'LL NEVER STOP ME!" That's obviously not how old this kid is, so you take out your holy blue saber (せい) and slice the slide in half. Then the jackhammer. Then the kid's metal arm—wait! This kid is a cyborg (さい)!
