To call Richard Garriott an interesting person is an understatement. He's the son of an astronaut, a pioneer in computer game development and an eccentric multi-millionaire. not only does he have his own castle (in Austin, Texas of all places!) but he owns his own Sputnik!

Kid 1 : So what's your name?
Kid 2: Superman
Kid 1 : for real?
Kid:2 naw' that's what they wanted to name me but the government wouldn't let them
My favorite part of the article is the list of real weird names mostly the kids of celeberties. AS if these kids don't have it tough already, they have to go through life as Kal-el or Apple.
Actually it was just a bunch of fans trying to set a world record. Click on the title for the full flicker set and links to news stories on this event.
Notice how most of the crowd is up a small flight of stairs from the Daleks. Obviously they haven't seen the last three seasons of Dr. Who! Extertminate! Exterminate!
But if twenty years from now, after a childhood of nonstop ridicule, your child writes the country and western hit "A boy named Slartibartfast" don't say I didn't warn you.

Back in the spring the USPS dressed mailboxes across the country as everybody's
favorite astromech droid. I figured they would be long gone by now but as of last week Artoo was still faithfully accepting may. fittingly, he occupies the same block as a comic shop And The Other Change of Hobbit science fiction book store.

One last Back to The Future post and I'll let it go... promise. Just as The BTTF ride is about to go dark things seem a little brighter for the Delorean. It seems that partly due to the films the car has gained a small but loyal following. How loyal? Loyal enough to make a Texas company mull building new ones. Click on the Title to read the story. Sounds cool but I think I'll wait until flight capabilities and Mr. fusion come standard.
