Great Exhibition 2010 Answered

Picture of

The Great Exhibition of 2010 was held at London's La Scala nightclub, with over a thousand costumed attendees.

Have a look at the BBC video which won't embed - lots of the stuff we are familiar with through such luminaries as gmjhowe, but other, less traditional imagery as well, especially in some of the costumes.

There is also a slideshow here

My favourites are the actually-steam-powered piano, and the the thunderbuss.

That is actually not called a thunderbuss, if I'm not mistaken, that is Doctor Grordbot's famous Unnatural Selector

Despite the similarities to the Unnatural Selector, the weapon in question IS in fact called the Thunderbuss, created by model maker Herr Doktor. Here is the link to the construction thread on the Brass Goggles forum: http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12576.0.html

Take that as a lesson in history, they had the chance to stop chap-hop right there but didn't.  Just wait till the gents start wearing their baggy pants low and exposing their underwear.

 That's normal, only when people do a half-rate job does it become annoying.

I get the feeling there are just as many steampunkers in the states - why not see if you can find them?

It doesn't help if many people there choose to shun modern conveniences like electricity.

That's only out in the Amish area.   Still, we were using computer punch cards in the late 1990's at work, so some people/busnesses are a wee bit behind.....
