Today I did something totally amazing. I made a fan stop by looking at it. It had been running all night, and then I looked at it and it stopped. It wouldn't start again. Dead.
I had not previously realized I have this power, and vow to use it only for good.
But then there was the problem of being down a fan, with the first heatwave of the summer due to hit next Tuesday or so. I realized that I had better head to Fan World ASAP, because you know what happens on the day after the first warm night. That's right, nary a fan to be had, except from guys selling them out of the backs of vans at extortionate prices. I am not a fan of the fan van man, so on this cool and drizzly Canada Day went to Fan World and picked out the above machine, which is alleged to be a fan, although it looks more like a member of Singapore's skyline. The important thing is that it blows.
I'll try not to look at it the wrong way.
