Are you fascinated by the realworld potential of nanotechnology, genetic engineering and cutting-edge physics? Have you ever secretly harbored desires for global domination and the ruthless yet stylish elimination of all who dare oppose you? Do you wonder why – in the 21st frakkin’ century – you STILL don’t have a flying car, robot butler or ray-gun?
THEN BOY DO WE HAVE THE TRACK OF PROGRAMMING FOR YOU!
The DragonCon Science Track has brought you the people who turn science fiction into science fact for over a hundred years!* In 2012 we present a stunning variety of mad scientists, evil geniuses with Enormous Throbbing BRAINS, and the usual dangerous lunatics.
Tremble in awe and fear (or perhaps alcohol withdrawal) as you meet:
- Gene-hackers who want to MUTATE YOU for fun and profit!
(And your kids! And your pets!)
- Commercial ANTI-MATTER manufacturers!
(It’s not just for “bigger than H-Bomb” blasts, though those are fun too!)
- Whiz kids who build CHEAP NUCLEAR REACTORS out of eBay junk!
(It’s so easy even YOU can do it! WE’LL SHOW YOU HOW!)
- Black-ops aerospace engineers with NEWLY DECLASSIFIED Cold War documents!
(Plus the UFO hoaxes and disinformation campaigns they created and spread!)
- Cryonicists who want to CUT OFF YOUR HEAD and store it in liquid nitrogen!
(So you can live forever in the Fun Sci-Fi Future! Seriously!)
So just grab a body – yours or someone else’s, living or dead – drag it on down and donate it to the DragonCon Science Track for a few hours; we’ll handle it from there.
You love it, you need it, shout it out loud,
Because without us, you’d still be living in caves.
