So you set it off, and the energy comes out in the form of high intensity x-rays:

Tatiana's right--we need a break from the chase to see what's up on the island.

It's the big day--Father's Day 2001 (18 July, if I remember right).

Most of the guests have arrived (not counting the one's on their way down from Nevada) and are in high spirits--some full of spirits--others smoking all sorts of stuff. drunken

But not everyone is in the same festive mood.

Woo has finished reading "The Death If Ivan Ilych" (again) and really just wishes he could skip the whole event. Neutral

But that's out of the question--after all the effort and preparations, he can't just sit in the tub feeling sorry for himself. No

Franco Rasetti--still spry in his 100th year--is out and about exploring the island. He has never been on an "eco-island" before, and finds it fascinating from both the botanical and geological angles.

He has walked the perimeter and explored the interior, and is more intrigued than ever:

Getting back out into nature, pursuing his love for rocks and plants, has done wonders for Rasetti's mood. Very Happy

He had spent the night before at a hotel in Cancun, and watched a stupid movie all about stolen nuclear weapons, which had reminded him of his past and cast him into a deep funk. No

He had also become intensely irritated by the technical inaccuracies in the device design. Mad

But he had to admit that, in principle, it was correct about the need for implosion symmetry in order compress plutonium to critical mass (the "one-point-safe" principle). geek

Anyways, he concluded that it was a complete waste of time watching this movie--except for the part with Nicole Kidman in a bathing suit Smile



Rasetti thought maybe he'd go to the hotel "business center" and Google "Nicole Kidman" + "swimsuit," but he decided to skip it.

Poor Franco isn't as young as he used to be. Sad

But we digress--that was last night--today everybody is getting into the spirit of the big event, and waiting for Woo to make his grand entrance. cheers

Willie Murphy is on stage with the Bumblebees, and Bob as a special guest.

Awkward--Bob strumming randomly and croaking out his vocals to what songs we can't be sure.

Willie is thinking "Where in tarnation are Felix and the pinhed? We need more pickers to drown out Bob." Rolling Eyes

As the sun rose on a brilliant day, Bob started singing something that might have been "Watchtower," but who cares if it was or not? The band was great, and Eddie was on the beach doing the funky Chicken and the dirty Dog, and Otro Nombre, Constance, Tigerlilly, Tatiana and Nash all joined in. Very Happy

The sun rises quickly so near the equator. The band had been playing all night and finally went on break. The revelers collapsed exhausted on the sand. Cool

After soaking up the sun for a time, Tatiana sat up and looked up and down the shoreline.

Tatiana -- "Who's that old coot that keeps walking along the shoreline picking up plants and shells and things?" scratch

Nash -- "I thought he looked familiar, and finally I remembered. He was the one that used have those wine tastings at Naniboujou back in 1955. He had that sort of a sour blueberry syrup that he called Vin des bleuets." Razz

Tatiana -- "Yes I remember now, his name was Franco something ..."

Nash -- "Franco Fermetti?"

Tatiana -- "Cath wanted to flog him for crimes against Viticulture." Razz

There was a nostalgic pause as the longtime ATU members recalled past happy times. flower

Tatiana reached for a newspaper that she had brought from Cancun (apart from this paper, the island was otherwise media-free).

Tatiana -- "Why do you suppose a Mexican newspaper has a polar bear on the front page?" scratch

Making out the text in Spanish was slow going:

Tatiana -- "I guess 'oso' means bear--yes? Otro, can you read this?"

Otro Nombre took the paper and started to read:

Otro -- "It says that polar bears are being sighted more and more outside of their natural habitats. They're in the western United States--even as far south as Nevada." study

Constance -- "Does anyone know why?"

Otro -- "The scientists say it's because of climate change."

Constance -- "But if it's hot, they should go north--not south." scratch

Eddie speaks up at this point:

Eddie -- "Climate change causes an increase in extreme events of all kinds. Droughts become more frequent, but so do snowstorms. What we are seeing in the wild kingdom is also an increase in extreme behaviour. The bears sense that their environment is changing, and are acting out their distress." geek

Tigerlilly -- "It seems more than a little bit crazy to me."

Eddie -- "It might seems crazy to us humans, but the more I see of the craziness of the human race, the more I find I can relate to the behaviour of man-eating beasts." bounce

Tigerlilly -- "you're scaring me, Eddie." affraid

Eddie -- "Don't worry; it's not as if I can ever turn into a bear."

Constance -- "But who knows what might become possible in the future." Laughing

That call could be important, but for most of the crowd there are so many distractions--so many events planned for the day, including a "celebrity roast."

Maybe we should take in some of the events and get back to that phone call later? Smile

Then again, the fate of the universe might hang in the balance. We'd better take that call NOW. bounce

Nash -- "Hello?"

Felix -- "Nash, milady, is that you?"

Nash -- "Indeed."

Felix -- "I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I'm alive and well."

Nash -- "I hope there isn't anything weighty on the other side of the balance." Rolling Eyes

Felix -- "Well, the bad news is ... not at all good." Neutral

Nash -- "Speak now, or I'll have gone back to the party." bounce

Felix -- "Not to beat around the bush, we are standing on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, just outside of Brownsville, Texas, watching a barge disappearing over the horizon."

Nash -- "Is there more? So far I am unmoved."

Felix -- "On the barge, there is a nuclear-driven x-ray laser weapon accompanied by Miss Panties, Precinct and a company of flying monkeys. And the barge is headed in the general direction of Cancun."

Nash -- "You have my attention. I am now listening for you to tell me what you are going to do about the barge."

--- pause ---

Nash -- "Still waiting." bounce

--- pause ---

Felix -- "We'll try to come up with a plan. How is the weather looking on the ocean down there?"

Nash -- "A bit windier than usual, blowing east northeast."

Felix -- "We'll have to take that into account, I reckon."

Delavan asks the obvious question: "So where can we come up with a fast boat--fast?"
