You just can’t get away from a pumpkin spice joke this season: so ubiquitous on every corner. Or more like in every food we see in the store beside the coffee drink. Sometimes I think about Frank Herbert’s Dune, where the Arrakis spice or melange turned user’s eyes blue over regular consumption. Makes you wonder … Continue reading Fall Is Here
Ever dusted cobwebs in a neglected part of your home with a broomstick? How about an entire house overrun with cobwebs to make your skin crawl with goosebumps?

Being simple in design, an artificially grown crystal with a specific ion matrix is used as a fuel source and the true representation of hybrid tech. It is hard to manufacture but incredibly self-reliant for all communications. But what is Slipspace?
