A Lobo line for you from No Going Back

I was making a few necessary tweaks and ran into this Lobo comment. It's one of my favorite of his--though I may yet change it; the book is far from done, but I am racing for the deadline.

“Humans,” Lobo said with a sigh, “can’t live with ‘em, can’t kill them all without more ammo than I can carry and without being really bored afterward.”
I love his mixture of the literal and the hyperbolic.

No, I won't tell you the context. For that, you'll have to read the book.

Poor Lobo would die from boredom, given how fast his brain thinks. Imagine if all he could do was chat on the machine frequency? That would be an interesting side story to write. "Lobo in machine frequency captivity for 4 weeks".

Perhaps he would solve the jump gate mystery!
