So… Apple’s new Mac Pro. It looks nice, I like it. About the size and shape of a kettle. Probably puts out about as much heat. I wonder if you could put a cup on the top to make tea.

You know what’s funny?

You know what’s funny? How in sci-fi every planet always has just one climate. Whole planets of ice, or fire. Hardly any variation. It’s very convenient of course. Unless you live on an ice planet.
