Wallet [n]: Mythical object rumored to carry
mysterious, disappearing substances referred to as
"money" or "cash" (not to be confused with the C
Shell).  The association of this "money" to real life
is currently being researched by R&D (put Reality in
the Background; Dammit).  Full results are expected

substance "money" is often required to obtain such
necessities as computers, pizza, hard drives, caffeine,
a network connection, and resolving the conflict
