Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Mi Casa Spins and Drains Differently Than Yours

I have designed and built a new 3,500 square foot house that rotates slowly and constantly.

Magazine interview transcript from Nov 29th, 2007

Why 3,500 square feet? I just kept adding stuff, mainly floor.

Why rotate constantly? I decided that I wanted my new house to be the only house in my hemisphere (northern) to drain water in a clock-wise rotation in the shower.

How fast does it rotate? Thats a closely guarded secret.

Couldn't we just stand outside and count the revolutions? No, there is a stationary shield to guard from prying eyes.

Will there be tours? Maybe.

What is it like to live inside a spinning house? Oh, its just horrible. After a while your mind starts to think that little pink spiders have started crawling all over the walls making monkey noises. Who could have predicted that ?!?!? I had predicted squirrel noises, maybe.

Update 2007-Dec-23 - It was discovered that a bearing was defective on the main rotation device, making a squealing noise, and that is what was causing the "monkey" noises. The neighbor's dogs don't howl as much now either.
