As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.


Mr. Safety forgets Safety Rule 1: Never, EVER, turn your back on any machine you’re in range of.

Darth Safetious’s PPE regeneration chamber, complete with testing equipment.


“Kids, before you had your fancy GoPros, this is what we had to use to get stable POV videos”

Let’s get to it!
