So you want to know more
The truth is out there, and right here. At least about me. Not sure about aliens yet.
At some point as a youngling I had a burning question that I needed answered: How did Mario get from this gray plastic box onto the TV? From there it's been a life long hobby to take things apart, figure out how they work, and put it back together, usually working.
- Video Games of course. Proud 3rd generation gamer. Gramps was an pong & Atari fanatic. Mom was a Tetris & arcade aficionado. I'm as old as the NES but still have 2 generations ahead of me. It's in the blood.
- Music. The love of my life is a vocalist, and I'm not a half bad guitarist... for being a drummer. Grew up on my Dad's vinyl collection and have had an insatiable appetite since. Good music is one of those things you can never get enough of.
- 3D Printing. It's the closest thing we have to a matter materializer. As soon as I first saw one I knew it was something I wanted to get my hands on and head around. It's amazing to go from idea to design to holding your idea in your hand.
- The Internet. As an 80s/90s kid that begged for a beige tower for Christmas so that I could see what the fuss was about, I'm still ceaselessly amazed at what this big global mind allows us to do. Before I got that beige Compaq tower, I would read the encyclopedia. I'm still trying to finish reading The Internet.
I feel like the right answer is any of the old Star Trek movies, because Earth is a utopia, but that's not a fun answer.
Probably something like Who Framed Roger Rabbit? or Honey I Shrunk The Kids where pretty much everything stays the same but we have an upside like cartoon friends or physics-bending shrinking rays.
I'm in a populated area, so hitting the roads would be a bad idea. Fill the bathtub & everything I can with water, get as much nearby food ASAP, secure and barricade the house as much as possible and go into bunker-mode. Stay settled until some kind of calm to assess and make moves from there. Can't be too tied to any one plan when there's brain-eaters about.
The Zack Morris "Time Out".
To put a few quotes from Wikipedia together:
"...an average kid who often comes off as shy and insecure but is a good person at heart who always tries to do the right thing. He’s naïve and gullible at times, and fears that people will think of him as a loser. He is quite nice. He’s a talented artist with a vivid imagination... He sometimes lets his fear and insecurities get the best of him, which causes him to dream up horrifying and chimerical worst-case scenarios to certain dilemmas. He also imagines himself as characters from famous films that he admires when he tries to imagine how his heroes would come out of a difficult situation in which he’s currently in."
