This thing kinda gives me the creeps.
It's like E.T. became an old, wealthy dowager, and while he/she read the morning newspaper with his/her magnifying glass (since his/her eyesight became bad as he/she grew older), King Midas came over and he/she was turned into gold and then King Midas chopped off and stole his/her hand.
At least that's how I see it.
