Wisconsin links: Preview, FFFF Offense, FFFF Defense
Thanks to BOBBY for making us liveblog software. We are slowly rolling out more features and are working through the the priority tree of issues. Last week was the transparent aluminum, and quick thought: why did Scotty need transparent aluminum? Wouldn’t six-inch Plexiglass have been fine on that spaceship? It seems unnecessarily fancy to make a plastics manufacturer from the mid-’80s invent a non-polymer clear plastic instead of just dealing with some old fashioned heavy plastic windows. I mean, okay, if you need to give the guy a small leg up on his competition in payment that’s understandable, but then give him something you know was invented shortly after, like light-emitting poly-ethyne or something. And don’t give me “How do we know he didn’t invent it?” because these characters lived centuries after the invention of the internet.
That said, if you notice anything else missing, put them in the comments on this article so the liveblog stays clear of meta.
