It’s January 12th, and that makes it the official Girl Genius Day!
I hope you’re wearing your goggles, because this could end up being a most dangerous day… for science!
Didja see that they’ve got a new book out? Like, a book book, not a picture book? Cool, huh?
But more importantly… Happy Birthday, Kaja Foglio! Thank you for the many, many hours of delight.
Ever since the first time I saw their work in Dragon Magazine, (and if you never got a chance to read Dragon Magazine during the height of TSR’s glory days, I’m sorry), and then after that the illustrated MythAdventures books, I loved the Foglios.
Such joy! Such fun! Such naughty mad science!
Just knowing it’s Girl Genius Day today is going to put a spring in my step.
Hmm… spring assisted shoes to put a bounce in my step. That’s a good start, but if I added air cylinders with a 35mm stroke to each one for some assisted pushing, then I’ll need an air compressor and a manifold to power and distribute air to the cylinders, gotta get the framework on the shoes, I’ll need some rebar and C strut for that, where’s my welder, gotta get some bigger boots for this, ones with straps to handle the thrust, ooh, and I’ll need power for the compressor, better add a motor, I’ll put that on a backpack frame to distribute the weight…
Minion! My tools! Where’s the spanner?
