Virtual Racing and Parkinson’s!

Well, kiddies, it’s time for another dose of well placed spam, and response.  🙂

Today, the victim is “Rebecca Evans” from a website called geriatricnursing.org, registered in Germany, and banging around the interwebs since about 2001.

Here’s Rebecca’s exciting message that I received on April 2nd … remember that date.  It’s important.

Well, I couldn’t let such a connection go unresponded-to!

Oh Rebecca, have I been awaiting your message!

You have finally fulfilled one of my lifelong quests — proof of time travel!  It’s sneaky, but you slipped it in at the end … “have a lovely March” … on an email that arrived on the second day of April.  You, madam, have my utmost respect and attention!

I’m thrilled that you view my tag archive page about virtual racing as a single, large article — that’s astounding!  Two years of work, spanning scores of races, loads of miles wobbled through loads of US cities, and you’ve not only seen it as a complete body of work, but you’ve also somehow linked that body of work to your research on Parkinson’s Disease.  I have no idea what the connection is, but I’m so very excited that you — YOU!!! — have found a connection between virtual racing and Parkinson’s.  That’s tremendous, and truly Nobel-worthy.  I hope you win it!

So, what do you know about nanobots?  I run a highly controversial itty-bitty nanobot octagon fighting league.  These lil’ bots just duke it out until one of ‘em can’t move — two bots enter, one bot leaves!  (Apologies to Thunderdome… but that’s really what happens!)  I’m thinking that the combination of your research and my octagon-based robo-conflagration could be a win-win for both of us!  Think of it… Little banners around the octagon, pimping GeriaticNursing.org, and maybe even your face on the floor!!!  The itty-bitties would be fighting right on your face!!!  I think I could even 3D print a model of your face for the floor, giving the nanobots places to climb (like your nose), and places to crimp off each other’s pincers (into a nostril, perhaps).  It would be epic!  And think of the publicity… you simply can’t buy publicity like that!

Rebecca, I hope you’ll email back soon, glistening with interest in pairing up your website and research with the fun, exciting, and never-scripted world of nanobot octagon fighting.  This is a match made in heaven!!!!

Your pal,
Colin

P.S.  Any thoughts about maybe leveraging your Nobel proceeds to help with replacing the limbs on the itty-bitties?  I’ve got a pile of busted up arms off the little nanodudes, and frankly, it makes the kids sad to see the little pile of limbs and parts on the dining room table every night.  (That’s where I do my best work!)  How much of your Nobel funds can I count on you for?  Don’t make me resort to playing Sarah McLachlan music over top of sad images of armless nanobots, panhandling for oil, nuts and bolts on the mean city streets!!!!
