I’m finally back from my long slog across America to move my partner and our nation’s premier shower-pasta enthusiast, David Tracy, across the country. I’m very happy to be home and back at my daily Autopian joyful grind, but it’s still a transition. One that was made easier by a surprise package at my door, the contents of which you can see up there.
Yes, that is a genuine, 1970s Air Jammer toy, the Air Jammer Bug Scrambler one, to be specific. I wrote about these with some awe and fascination a few weeks ago, since it’s one of my all-time favorite cars made with cutting-edge 1970s pneumatic piston tech, and sold in the most goofball ways possible.
Our own social media savant, Peter, found this one on eBay and sent it to me. What a peach!
Sure, all the air hoses are brittle and feel like uncooked pasta, but who cares? It’s fantatasic, and a great reminder of what the human spirit can accomplish.
Now I have to figure out why my laptop is refusing to work. I’m typing this up on an iPad. Ooof.
