I seem to be of a steampunk mind today. The future past designs of these vehicles are very interesting. Someone the other day mentioned to me that the skies would be filled with airships if the Hindenburg hadn't burned and Hitler had won the war. More than likely we would have our flying Nazi cars and Nazi jet packs. Sure they were pure evil but they had sharp uniforms and could really engineer some nice military hardware. No wonder both the Soviets and the USA kidnapped all the German scientists they could get their hands on after WWII to work on their space programs. This exchange from the movie 'The Right Stuff' occured just after the success of Sputnik.
President Lyndon Johnson - "Was it them...was it their Germans?"
Werner Von Braun - "No Senator. Our Germans are better than their Germans."
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
