It's not mechanical.

I seriously doubt it's clicky.

Do we even need to discuss the rest of the claims? :))
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I didn't notice the "clicky" claim. I was too busy noticing the board chow.

It's all a matter of attention. For example, in this image:

But now it wouldn't work. Regardless of lifestyle, you'd know what to expect.

I still didn't see Godzilla - is it like in the shadows or something?

Itís some kind of Godzilla chameleon, disguising itself as a giant topiary in the top corner. Doesnít look at all like this guy:

That's exactly the moment of weakness Godzilla's rely upon. It's well known they employ busty blonds in tight dresses to distract a populous so they can sneak up and smash everything. A clever hunting rouse.
