    Awesome. A clear reflection of a romantic epoch driven by ideals. Evil or not, distorted or not, but ideals.

    Thanks, Cory for making my day. I would visit the city by the sea, if it existed, especially if they parked a sliced-up iceberg nearby. The iceberg could surely be used to chill freshly sucked-up schools of fish. The future used to be great.

    Not quite sure what’s happening to the whale on p3, but it’s probably not good.

    Knowing what happens on a cruise ship when the power goes out, I think we were fortunate nobody tried to build a giant floating city stuffed full of people… it would have quickly turned to a stinking, festering, disease-ridden, crumbling, sinking mess.
