[27-Jan] Buying a stairway to Genericon

Er ah ::is embarrassed:: this would probably be really smart and funny if I knew what RPI was :)

::checks the Genericon site as per link provided by the Man Himself::

This is really smart and funny! Well done!

RPI is Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the host college campus for Genericon. The campus is built on the top of a rather steep hill, with almost everywhere being uphill from where you are. Those stairs are one of the three reasons I didn't go there for college, despite being accepted with almost full financial aid.

Couple of pictures I took at Genericon a few years back:

The building at the bottom is the hotel we were staying in. The part of campus where the con is held is a fair walk uphill from the top of the stairs.

edit: (Dammit, the HTML IMG tags worked in Preview. WTF is Preview for if it doesn't Preview what actually shows up when you hit Submit?)

Funny. First thing I thought of when I saw those stairs was "Salem State College!" which has a huge stairwell leading to its library that looks almost exactly like that, I swear...

Well, it's been a few years. And I know the RPI sign isn't there. But otherwise it reminded me of SSC. :P

*sniff* I miss having snow at Genericon... and pylons... and empty Labbatt Blue bottles strewn about campus...
