ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Based on the headline, I was expecting something else.
It isn’t, really, but you did beat me to the pun.
Boring machines used, of course, to mine Tedium- the dullest substance known to man.
so when are they going to hit the large pocket of Tedium under ipswitch?
Wondering why these humungous machines always have feminine names, Ada & Phyllis in London; in my hometown T.R.U.D.E & V.E.R.A (some boring acronyms – don’t ask!).
Shoggoth I + II would have been my choice… *evil grin*
“It was a terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train—a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us…”
You, sir, are a scholar and a gentleman. Cthulhu fthaghn !
Shouldn’t this be here? http://www.hanasiana.com/boringboring/
Nifty little pastiche there :)
