Infinity Social Increase!

Odd-Match sure has been a blessing to my social life. I used to talk to no real human people outside of life, and now I talk to… um… hang on a moment. According to a percentage calculator, that would be an increase of infinity. Times two! I don’t know, but I have two friends now, because …

Sliding Fun Times

I wonder if it’s possible to make a house that’s one giant cave. I can see why it’s not usually an option, of course. You’d need a space the size of a warehouse, to start off. The ventilation would be extremely difficult, as would the issue of dust. And if everything was so open, would …

That Italian Kitchen

If you ask me – not that anyone ever does, but IF you asked me – then I’d say that animation is superior to live action. In fact, I think that’s where everything is eventually headed: you’ll have your ultra-realistic CIG on one side, your cartoon animation on the other end of the scale, and …

The Power Suit

The power required to run a mech suit is pretty immense, or so it would seem. I thought we could get away with just stuffing the power compartments of every single suit with dozens and dozens of AA batteries. I wasn’t going to be super cheap and use AAA,  unless I had to. But it’s …

Just A Boat

Boats: what, pray tell, is the go? What I mean is, why do people get so obsessed with them? When it comes down to it, they’re just like cars but without the wheels. Granted, you can’t use cars to cross bodies of water. But then, you can’t use boats to cross stretches of solid ground. …

Into Hyperspace

It’s funny how words have the power to shape our experience of reality. Like, have you noticed that adding the prefix ‘hyper’ onto random words instantly makes things seem more fun, as though you’re in the midst of a high-stakes mecha plot? For example: I made some hyper porridge for breakfast this morning. It was …

Interstate Glass Troubles

Long-distance work really is giving me a serious headache, both in the regular sense and by way of metaphor. Here we are stuck in Melbourne and handed a major project taking place in Canberra, so I guess they expect us to shuttle back and forth every other day like that doesn’t cost massive amounts of …

Move for Independence!

So we just spent a week on stakeout. That’s cool. I mean, stakeout constitutes most of our job. I have my coping mechanisms, and also, a handheld console that I can use to entertain myself for hours. I don’t play it while I’m supposed to be keeping watch, though – at least, not very much. …

Fix Your Traffic!

I like travelling, I really do. I’m not a travel-head who posts Instant-Gram pictures with captions like ‘leave only footprints, take only memories…’ and otherwise rubs my wealth in other people’s faces by going on elaborate cruises. And posting pictures every day. With a million hashtags. I like travelling, but I just think it comes …
