    What a great presentation.  For such awkward-looking constructions, their movements are elegant and beautiful to watch.

  1. I love the way a whimsical idea was paired with an intellectual one. Sometimes I wonder if that kind of innovative thinking is become increasingly rare in American society only because it is discouraged in favor of the relentless re-packaging of straight up consumer products. The scientific eccentric who thinks in seemingly paradoxical ways has been replaced by the guy who can make a new weapon or come up with the latest cell phone that can do a bunch of shit that replaces relationships with actual people.

  2. this is a wonderful idea!  In light of that, have you ever seen this site?
