Observing from my front yard at 1AM, I noticed three teenage/20-something young men (maybe slightly stoned or tipsy) approaching along the street, all much bigger than me.

But it was I who scared them when they noticed me. I immediately asked "Hey, you guys want to see something cool?" (I happened to be viewing Saturn, which maybe the single best object, especially for new observers.)

After looking, they said "Dude - that's baller." They were psyched, so I think "baller" means good.

I'm pretty comfortable with people, and I'm confident that almost everyone wants "to see something cool."

That 9mm ES 100 could really hurt someone if you hit them with it.......it really is a dangerous weapon (in more ways then one).
