Good morning, comfortable and educated readers.
As I sit in my Victorian armchair with its faded upholstery, sipping my Chocolate Chai tea that I bought at the Renaissance Festival, I am moved to ponder all the delightful places to visit in this universe (many of which are on this very planet) that are so full of geek awesomeness that it might be worth getting out of my armchair to do so.
Some people, when planning their vacations, long for beautiful mountain hikes, but I live near mountains and could easily go explore instead of browsing the Internet. Others long for tropical beaches, but I have a lovely 55-gallon fishtank in my home and some of the fish are even alive. Still others long to see ancient cities and architectural relics of the past. Well, actually, that would be pretty cool, but that’s not what this site is about, so moving on to my point.
Science! Engineering! Relevance to media that I personally enjoy! These are the things that are worth talking about, and what I have founded this site to discuss.
This site that you have discovered is for the people, like me, who really love geeking out about everything, including vacation. The universe is full of amazing, awe-inspiring, and wonderful things, and the pursuit of knowledge and passion doesn’t stop for some of us just because no one is watching.
On this site, over time, you will read about the beautiful Arizona hills surrounding the only closed-system multiple-biomes space experiment that gives guided tours. You will eschew the views at National Parks in favor of the best places to view the effects of the geological torment under the Earth. You will learn where the best computer museums are, and why you suddenly want to visit them. You will learn that you can sleep in the hotel where Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru’s house was filmed, and why it gets such bad reviews on TripAdvisor.
These are important things to know.
So I invite you, readers, to take a journey to these far-off lands from your own plushy armchairs, sipping your own favorite beverages, and saving your own money so you can visit them in person and write in to tell the rest of us all about it.
As Terry Pratchett says, the world is your mollusc.
