Pure Imagination

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to run a factory. That might sound strange, especially coming from someone with zero experience in large-scale production or logistical management. But then, maybe it’s precisely that lack of experience that makes me curious. I guess there’s some kind of power in rolling out batches upon batches …

Biggest Tornado

Today I finally get to unleash my experiment. It’s been a long time in the making, and cost me millions of dollars to make. But it will all be worth it to win the world record for the largest artificial tornado. I don’t think there’s any prize money or anything, but my name will be …

Fastidious Breakfaster?

Breakfast: what’s your take on it? I’m genuinely interested, as the subject tends to be quite divisive. Some people are passionate fans of it, revelling in everything from the full cafe spread to paleo power bowls, while others disdain it beyond the obligatory black coffee. Still others are committed to their morning shot of apple …

Airy Hyperbarics

Airy and I continued talking so that I could write its memoir, while we walked along the beach of Brighton. It’s been an odd experience, interviewing an air conditioner, but it’s certainly been an enlightening one. I’ve learned so much about air conditioning culture, more than I even knew there was to learn. Today I …

Precision Glass

My dream house is almost complete. It’s been a long process, but we’re almost ready to move in. Can you believe how far we’ve come in the last twelve months? It feels like just the other day that I was blogging about how we were looking for prime real estate on the hills. Then we …

Glass Hotel

I have very vivid dreams, and last night’s dream was one of my all time favourites. In my dream, I opened a hotel made entirely of glass. It was beautiful. It was by the beach in a coastal Victorian town, with beach views on one side and hillside views on the other. The whole hotel …

Freedom Health

Apparently, moon-jumpers aren’t standard in this dimension. That’s a little disappointing, but given their general level of technology and the fact that they haven’t been entirely embroiled in war to fuel innovation for the last few decades, I’m still fairly satisfied.  No moon-jumpers, though? Those are boots, by the way, not wool garments that you …

The Truth Hurts

When I got to the conveyancing firm, the first thing the lawyers asked me was, “Why would a sentient car need to sell a house?” followed closely by, “Why does a sentient car have a house?” Yes, it’s true that I don’t need a house, but I do need a carport or garage. As to …

Hive Time

What the flip is going on with these new… perching pods? Cyber seats? Ergonomic eggs? I really don’t know what to call them. They might technically count as desk chairs, but they’re stretching the definition of that by a pretty wide margin, if that makes sense. They’re definitely designed as a place to sit while …

Million Dollar Paper

I just read an article outlining what a million dollars can buy you in today’s property market, and comparing this across Australia’s capital cities. Hobart, apparently, is still seeing soaring house prices, albeit from a low starting point, while Sydney offers its usual fare of inflated valuations with weekend auction mania only reinforcing that position. …
