She's Indian : if presented with a "spicy vindaloo", her first comment is likely to be "what is this repulsive slop?", followed shortly by howls of alternating hilarity and incredulity as you explain to her that you think this is "Indian" food.

Are you a troll or just ignorant? Let's see what Wikipedia says about vindaloo.

So we found this planet by measuring gravitational changes on light. If the planet were in fact cloaked, then wouldn't that be akin to just turning off the gravity for the whole planet?

Actually, I see it as a way to stop people from using pirated Windows. Oh, you can't pass the Windows Genuine Advantage (or whatever it is called these days), so you can't properly update your machine. Since your machine isn't updated, that means no internet for you. That would be a big disincentive to pirates everywhere.
