Steam! An element, a force, an ephemeral object created by boiling water. Created when water puts out fire, created in a man's ears when his patience is nearly at end. It's useful. You can cook with it, making tons of delicious noms in the process. You can scald people you really don't like with it. You can use it to generate electricity, so you can power a laptop and look at Youtube videos of cats jumping into boxes. You can play games with it, because some very nice people who drink too much soda and eat too much pizza decided, "Hey, wouldn't it be neat if you could have all your games in one place? If you could keep your games and your saves safe in virtual storage somewhere else in the world, in case your little brother decides he's spilling his soda all over your keyboard because you tattled on him for drawing on the walls three hours ago?" It doesn't have ALL the games, of course. That would be plain silly.
Steam is useful as home security, too. You can have vents of steam to scald any home invaders who try to steal your preciouses. You can use it to kill unsuspecting teenagers, by using it in water form to cool your house's nuclear reactor; if you microwave irradiated pool water, you get lovely radioactive steam. Steam is all kinds of fun, innit?
