Love & the Cosmosphere

My friend nessalc (who writes here) is trying to plan a trip for a group of us to visit the Kansas Cosmosphere. I'm stoked about it because I love the Cosmosphere deeply... as in, if I actually lived in Hutchinson I would probably have a season pass and go by myself all the time. But it's about an hour drive away. It's still awesome though, and if you're ever in the vicinity of it I would highly recommend driving and hour or two off course to make sure you don't miss it. And if you're a flying pilot type, the steakhouse at KHUT also makes it a worthy stop.

Let me just say that the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum has more big stuff, but the Cosmosphere is actually a near-better way to spend an afternoon, tells a better story with its artifacts, and is honest to everything that amazing.

Anyway he was trying to pick a weekend in February and decided to avoid the 13th to avoid conflicting with anyone's Valentine's day plans, which I find amusing because as much as I think I hate Valentine's Day about as much as I love the Cosmosphere. I just figured that among Cosmosphere-loving geeks (and nessalc is a total nerd) Valentine's Day would not be too popular. Not only do I refuse to celebrate it, but I don't even acknowledge the fact that other people need to celebrate it and I WILL make plans without regarding it at all. It's the dumbest holiday ever invented and I have no use for it.

So I realize I seem poll-happy this week but the last one was so darn fun, let's see if I'm alone in this:
