I haz returned.
The Great College Tour is complete. Universities and colleges were visited, food was consumed, and nary a video game was played.
Hell, I didn't even THINK of MMOs or video games until our last visit of the Tour. The guide for the last university tour paused in front of a room at the Student Center and asked if anyone here played video games.
Three mini-Reds' hands shot up, along with those of a couple of other people.
Well, the guide said, this is the video game room. There are consoles and oversized screens there for people to play, and it's all free of charge.
I swear I thought I saw the mini-Reds' levitate.
Not all was serious business, certainly. We did sample the local cuisine (which, in Chicago, means Chicago style hot dogs and Chicago style pan pizza), and we took a day off and visited the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.
Here, have a picture of the Pioneer Zephyr --the first US streamliner-- which was donated to the Museum of Science and Industry in 1960:
