Been there, done that. People just think I'm smoking a "funny" cigarette. :)

Yes, suck as in suck up. Either light or affection. :)

If the world were still there. I'm thinking more of the repulsive force.

Again do we want to? I'm thinking along the lines of an alarm that 
announces that the rats have escaped from their cage.
Which reminds me of a very simple alarm system I saw once. I was working 
in Taronga Zoo a couple of decades ago. I got a back room tour around 
the monkey enclosure. Just as you came to the outer door there was a 
small window with a banana on the inside ledge. If the banana was not 
there then there was a very good chance that a monkey had escaped from 
the inner enclosure and eaten the fruit. Simpler and cheaper than an 
electronic alarm.
