Apparently, they can precision-shred your corneas but then enough time passes so that they need a good re-shreddin'. What's funny is that I remember being surprised that such a thing happened, that you would have to do it again, the first time I heard about it and then my mind shielded me from this information for years. I'm very defensive of the eye. I juke and sway like a leaf insect when something gets close. I also don't like needles; I will physically deflect a doctor who comes in with one, trying to get my juice, and it's not even a conscious act - I can see my own hand rising up to bat them away, over and over. They ain't getting in. And a laser beam is just a needle made out of light - I feel like that's broadly understood. So this whole thing is not okay with me in any way, let alone two times. I'm happy - I'm honored - to just hang an object from my face every day for the rest of my life.
PAX South is next week, and we're excited to show off the Southern Variant of the year's look as well as a few other surprises we have in store, but also literally in the store. Recall also that PAX South, even before PAX Unplugged was formed, has the Tabletop Indie Showcase - a unique variant of the PAX 10 focusing exclusively on games of the board variety. Who will you see there this year? You have only to gaze below:
AEGIS: Combining Robots by Zephyr Workshop
Set a Watch by Rock Manor Games
MISSION TO PLANET HEXX! by MOVE RATE 20 GAMES
Mecha Riders by AvalonGT
Gladius by Cat Quartet Games
