Wanna Play?

Early in the first season of Fringe, Walter and Peter argue. That happens a lot in the first season of Fringe.

Anyway, Walter posits some outrageous theory and Peter poo-poos it, at which point, Walter accuses him of being close-minded.

Glaring, Peter leans forward over the lab counter and growls, "You wanna play? Fine. Let's play."
Being a mad scientist and his genius son, they go on to invent an impossible machine that does, well, the impossible.

I love that scene.

I forget how much fun fellow nerds can be. Nerds? Fun?

Yes. It's the same for nerds as it is for sports fans or weathermen or professional garage salers. When you get together with a group of folks who love the same thing you do, fun happens.

My fellow nerds at NAF reminded me of that yesterday. Hopefully, our game will become your enjoyment at some future date.

Frankly, I don't care if it does. I'm having enough fun for all of us, whether or not you ever see the fruits of our enjoyable labor.

Wanna play? You bet I do.

Thanks for playing with me, NAF.
