(Ben proceeded 10 minutes later to tell me the story about the engineer from India who would not trade his phone extension -x1337- with Ben even after Ben showed him the wikipedia article to educate him. He was really irritated, because the engineer didn't understand the significance of his awesome extension. Ben can be fun.)
