Different Impressions


My father is a pilot.  Not a commercial one, it's his hobby.  
    A fairly important bit of his plane broke and the mechanic made him buy a new one.
 So he brought home the old, broken piece.
  His impressions are: " *Grumble grumble* Can't see why the guy couldn't have just fixed it.  I can see what he should have done there's a thing right here…" And so on.  
   My impressions were:
 




It's a thing of beauty this device.  Close-up it resembles some sort of nefarious generator!  But from the front it's just another ugly piece of machinery.  
     It was built at a time when brass and copper, tubes and gears were actually feasible, nay, required. 
 And the design never broke or became to expensive to produce, so it never got changed. 
  Amazing.

More Steam!

This is how I spent my morning.
  MORE STEAM!
 LESS PUNKS!

You can take this however you want, As a call to arms for Steampunks across the world to weed out the posers, Or to weed out the punks by accepting them into the subculture. 
 The least we can do either way is do away with those horrible low-hanging trousers.

EDIT: Re-reading this post I had this image in my mind of squads of roving Steampunks traveling the alleys and byways of the city transforming those regular punks into upstanding citizens.
Somebody get on that.
