Zack: We combed through a stack of Traveller books for these crappy pictures and way too many of them had pages like this one.
Steve: The game here is try to figure out what all that stuff means. I think one of those columns is for atmosphere composition of planets.
Zack: The one to the left of that is a list of lottery numbers.Steve: One column is just "Ma" over and over.
Zack: I think I figured out two of them. Hexadecimal color values and geo-caching coordinates.
Steve: Dog man down there is gonna be amazed at what we find buried next to the rock shaped like a wiener.
Zack: Yes! One of those plasma spheres you can buy at Sharper Image!
Steve: Welcome to the amazing technological future, dude. It's a lot like winning the lottery.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
