Looking back after the culmination of all these threads in Endgame. Queen Amidala’s midichlorian magical umbrella.
Thor knowing All-Tongue, emitting pheromones, and doing the bee dance. The difficutly of universal language or language understanding. Finnishish conlanging. The cultural and linguistic juxtaposition between Scandinavia and Finland.
Alignment of worlds
Astrology is bunkum nonsense gobbledegook. The miniscule and generally unimportant effects when bodies in space are “in alignment.”
Our difficulties with magical realism. Asgardian “Smagic.” Apparent technology levels and technology so advanced it looks like magic. Bringing swords and shields to a lasergun fight.
Dosing for war. Uppers are very popular. The Finnish soldier who was the “first documented case of a soldier over overdosing on methamphetamines during combat.”
Black holes etc
“Gravity grenades.” The possibility of man-made miniature black holes.
The bright and exciting future of who does what with whom and how. Polar bears. How we might have handles this VR technology as teenagers.
Colbert is the bear
Nostalgia for days-long gaming binges with Doritos and Easy Cheese. Ubiquitous full-spectrum VR experience. Neural mapping. Popular physics plugins , game engines, and the possibility that McCallister and Striking Vipers etc run on the same software.
Dirt subscription boxes. Maintaining your skin microbiome. Showring? Soap vs detergent. Probiotic yogurt: “one for me, one for the undercarriage.”
Knife-down safety is actually important(!). Dish detergents and plate dirtiness. Clever dirtiness-measurement technologies.
Thanks to a few different folks for nominating us some months ago and thanks to the Parsec people for putting us in a group with these other fine shows. We’ll let you know how it goes sometime in November 🙂
