Watching all these buildings being …knocked down with a simple swipe of his paws. …Though, that's what were going to do now.

I'm going to go in there and deselect all …of these little sections right there. Now, with my Lasso and the Option key, I …will surround other areas that I don't want. …I don't want to have any of this stuff selected. …
