You put the coin in your dressing gown. Your dressing gown begins to glow blue.

You try to trade the zorkmid for a Bitcoin but AM, the computer, screams about how much it hates you, erases your mouth, and pushes you down an elevator shaft.

You are at the bottom of an elevator shaft. There is a door here.

You find a trap door set into the bottom of the shaft.

Inside the door is a folded paper

It is a leaflet from 3 years ago, you unfold it.

It contains two words:


"Modulo"



And beneath it, written in what appears to be dried blood, the enigmatic word:


"Covfefe"

You try the other door. A voice booms, "Do you open doors without knocking first?"

The door opens. Through the doorway you can see a hallway with cobwebs dangling from the ceiling and walls. In the distance is a dim, flickering light.

You call maintenance. The elevator doors open far above you. A voice yells out, "Catch!" You see a light bulb falling toward you.

Do you mean that you want to look at the light bulb? Please phrase your input in the form of an action.
