A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Seamus is just outside the door to Dr. Sharkisian's office. He pauses, anticipating the experience will not be pleasant.
Seamus (thought): Well, here we go.
Inside the door, Seamus is surprised to find himself face to face with a gruff-looking male Beltape, who sits behind a reception desk.
Beltape: Who are you?
Recovering from his momentary confusion, Seamus deals with the unusual receptionist. The receptionist is looking at a list on a small holoscreen before him.
Seamus: Ah, I am Dr. Seamus O Murchadha, here for an appointment with Dr. Sharkisian.
Beltape: Omurru-koo, omurru-koo ...
Seamus is flummoxed by this receptionist's uptake-slowness.
Beltape: T'ere is no 'Dr. Shaymis Omurru-koo' on te list.
Seamus: What? Nonsense.
Seamus presses on.
Seamus: Please look again – that's s-e-a-m-u-s, o, m-u-r-c-h-a-d-h-a.
Beltape: Uh, oh yeah t'ere it is.
The Beltape looks puzzled.
Beltape: But wait – t'at doesn't spell ' Shaymis Omurrukoo,' it spells 'see-mus oh-mur-chad-ha.' What are you tryin' ta pull?
Seamus is getting really irritated now.
Seamus: Of course it spells 'o murrukoo,' that's how it goes in the Gaelic.
Beltape: T'e what?
Now Beltape is getting steamed, and points towards the way Seamus came in.
Beltape: We don't do any of t'at gay-lick around here, buddy. T'is is a respectable establishment. Get out.
