Didn't I see this at the beginning of Earth*Star Voyager?

@art Considering the times we live in, I've been more selective about using the sentence starting with "what the actual..."

I think this fits

@cypnk @art I should buy one of those. I don't really spend enough time out among the Humans to *need* it, but given everything else, can I afford not to?

What if the air becomes a toxic miasma again? I'd be fine in my space helmet, everyone else would die. $199 and finally enough time to read all the books.

@mdhughes @art I think it's possible to DIY this by hacking a clear plastic bowl onto a pair of noise-cancelling headphones. The rest is just a hacked HEPA filter

@monorail@glaceon.social @art@mastodon.sdf.org I actually went to reread to find out 'cause I was curious. Seems like it'd be nice for reno work.

@art@mastodon.sdf.org Hunh. I've seen similar things while doing a search for a masked setting I'm #writing. I'm not sure which way I'd go.

The name made me giggle, though. I didn't learn about microclimates until I moved to the Finger Lakes - because the geography here means we have a lot of small microclimates. Great for wine growing! (*)

not THAT small though.

(*) yeah yeah, grape growing. But the juice stuff and the eating stuff are mostly grown further west. Thus, wine growing.

@art does it have an attachment to still be able to smell your own farts?

@art i dont think they were *trying* to make something accessible but those might actually solve the lipreading problem

@art It's like Poe's Law for startups: "It is utterly impossible to parody a Startup in such a way that someone won't mistake for the genuine article."

I think there's a corollary to that which states that the parody will be the most successful business enterprise of the two.
