The machines these replace use some noxious sweetened powder like substance from which are fabricated variations on “coffee” drinks

Swine flu panic masks

Wednesday, April 29, 2009 

These should really have little piggie snouts!

They’d be so cute!  Plus it should read PANIC PANIC around the straps.
Somebody thought of it!
Swine flu (2009) ended up being a non-event.  Corona 2019 a decade later, not so much.  Bat masks?

Dance Dance Immolation

Monday, April 27, 2009 

A fun variant of the classic arcade game at NIMBY’s How to Destroy the Universe party.
Put on a customized fireproof suit with positive pressure and pick a song.

A few jets of flame over the screen to celebrate the start

Uh oh, both missed!

Dude! You so missed a step.  Toast.

The flames retract

Yay!  You survived!

Stuck at ORD after the RCC closes…

Wednesday, April 22, 2009 

I travel with various electrical adaption and extension devices as one might find useful in various countries including the US. It turns out a lot of people got stuck by the multi-hour delay here in ORD and needed to work beyond their battery capacity. My collection of wires has turned into an AC farm near the gate.
