Wait, you can let a block eat gliders while also keeping its beehive-style eating reactions? :o
You can! I was pretty excited when I discovered that — it's only very rarely useful in my experience, but still really fun.

It's a conlang — I think it means "Do you speak feleglibleg'?". ("feleglibleg' " or "ɸɛlɛgliblɛɣ" is the name of the conlang, literally translating to "terrible speech".)
