Episode One Hundred and Eighty Six: Videogame Tourism; Principles for 21st Century Government 

0.0 Sitrep   8:42am at a Starbucks in suburbia, getting the suburbia Giant Car fixed because the magic eye that lets us see out the back of the car gets fogged up and moisture clogged resulting in a fog-of-war type rendering effect whenever we look through the magic mirror that lets us see out the […]

Either 2:45pm from my departure location or 8:45pm the previous day at my destination. 1.0 The Starship Enterprise I was having dinner the other night […]
