P and I went to the Maker Faire this afternoon. As expected, it was complete and utter geek heaven. We ran into several people that we knew, and probably missed tons of others.

At some point we found a Van de Graaf generator and stopped to watch for a moment. If you're not aware, that's a big static electricity generator. You've no doubt seen one in a science museum somewhere-- the classic schtick is that you put your hand on it and your hair stands on end.

We turned around to walk away, and a woman stopped me. "You have to do it! Please, please! Please go do it!" I'm not accustomed to having attractive women beg me for things, and I generally find it quite difficult to tell them no. This was no exception. Unfortunately, it was a bit too humid to get a real hair-raising experience.

I'd like to have seen that picture.

I imagine something like this, but with purple.

Yeah, okay, your hair and a Van de Graaf generator were truly meant for each other.
