Day 720 of 365 More.

Tomorrow morning, August 1st, 2008 CE, my 34th birthday, at approximately 10:18 Zulu Time, the sun will rise in Pittsburgh. It will be the last time.

Oh my god, have I been waiting for this a long time. 34 straight weeks of hardcore labor, and now I am finished. Tomorrow, I destroy the sun.


Atomic batteries to power! Turbines to speed!

Excuse me while I make a call.

Hello, United Nations? This is Maverick. I have the Doomsday Device…

365 days

    Happy Birthday Son! And get your behind down from there! What are you doing with that contraption? How many times do I have to tell you to STOP playing with weapons for your science projects! Now go to your room!

    Happy Birthday!!!!
    And… a dear, and don’t destroy the sun…..just when we’re trying to use more solar power and all…..that would just really mess things up……
    However, if you are just itching to use that thing, here’s my ex-husband’s address…….oh crap, never mind – that would give me some really bad karma….

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    I’m not sure that this thing is up to code. And I’m pretty sure it’s not built using the approved plans. I think you need to scratch this one and start again.

    Happy Birthday!!

    Had the toal solar eclipse been visible from this hemisphere, I might have wondered, just for a second, if you had succeeded . . .

    Happy birthday man! I sadly don’t foresee making it in for the Jam, as I have a final exam that Monday, so traveling is likely far from the most wise decision, but I’ll see what cheap airfares materialize nonetheless.

    @elisabethspace: yeah, exciting isn’t it?

    @Crystal Chroma: thank you. I’m glad some people respect the beauty of the device.

    @phlewght: Yeah, that’s what you thought. The world wasn’t mocking me when they were drenched in darkness yesterday, though, were they?

    @lrayholly: awww, mom!!!

    @Babs1696: thanks. And don’t worry, your ex was just as drenched in darkness as everyone else.

    @like_shipwrecks: thanks, luv

    @DeHoll: thank you

    @mz dee1: it was a cover up, as I said in the pic from yesterday.

    @Mikey aka DaSkinnyBlackMan: I know, right?

    @gargunkle: bah! It’s an intergalactic death ray. Any similarity to any other device is purely coincidental.

    @Leepak: thank you. And I can get down ust fine on my own, thank you.

    @psgypsy: thanks.

    @adayinthelife: thanks. Again, I am glad everyone can marvel at my creation.

    @khaughwout: heh… a lesser man than I would have spent a year planning out a shot in preparation for an eclipse that he read about that just so happened to be occurring on his birthday. A lesser man. I on the other hand actually destroyed the sun, and then reignited it. There was just a media cover-up to help people sleep better at night.

    There was a lot of sun here. How did you fake that?

    @phlewght: I revesed the polarity of the internal fusion deatomizer and turned the gyro-spectrum down halfway allowing for a minor fission reaction to release enough energy to create a small singularity. Just enough power to reignite a small yellow star. Really, it was like way technical and stuff.

    A fascinating piece of Star Trek technobabble, Chief Engineer Maverick! I think you just might be full of it.

    A favorite piece of technobabble is medical, from the Next Generation second season, when Picard’s artificial heart needs replacing. The surgery goes awry: "It’s not working; somethings wrong. The metabilation occlusions aren’t holding. Dammit! I can’t stop the heterocyclic declination! Fuse! [buzz] Again! [buzz] We need a biomolecular physiologist in here! This man is dying!"

    [Dun dun daaaaaaa!]

    But that reminds me — time to break out the Deep Space Nine discs!
