9 - Jacob's Ladder electrical device – this is the sort of device with two wires sticking straight up with a spark running between the wires, rising from bottom to top, repeatedly, such as in old science fiction movies. There are no technical grounds for suggesting that a Jacob's Ladder device can be used to capture wireless internet data in transit. But it will look cool when they make this story into a movie.

10 - I added the Fairport-er bit at the end, but otherwise this is from, "Patriotic Grace: What It Is and Why We Need It Now", by Peggy Noonan.

11 - At this point after Perry had heroically completed the quest, I was going to refer to Fairport as "boring", but I chose to give a nod to players of role-playing games, who commonly refer to life outside their games as "mundane".
