mmm...rotating toroidal vortices...

Went to the American Science & Surplus tent sale.  Really didn't need to but, well.... 

I did get a Zero Gun, though.  It's a gun that fills a chamber with stage fog, then when you pull the trigger it shoots a smoke ring.  It is really very cool; I have thoughts of cladding it steampunk-style.  Picked up a military surplus bag, about the right size for a 2-liter of soda, to use as a holster (it's not a small gun).  

If you get a Zero Gun, get AA batteries while you're at it; you'll be disappointed to get home and find you need six of them.

I see now that TeslaCon is scheduled very close to SteamCon, and I think might have originally been scheduled for the same weekend.  I hope that doesn't shoot TeslaCon's membership in the foot; from a purely selfish POV I'm way more likely to go to a con in Madison than one in Seattle.  Although, Seattle is a pretty fun place to visit, and I do have family there.


ETA:  the Zero Gun has a short or something.  Bummer.  I'm miffed...but it seems it ought to be fixable.  Seems bad placement to have the "power" button in the middle of the "fill vapor chamber" button anyway.  Well, nothing about any of my outfits says a gun is required.  It's just....so very cool.  When it's working.

Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
