Yay for experimental story structures! It was a pain to type out though. Usually I type up my stories in Word and then just copy and paste them over, but the blogger format made the bullet points all wonky so I had to fix them. Gross. Anyway, this guy just looked like he had some seriously lofty ambitions.

In other news, you should totally donate to this campaign to build a Tesla museum!
