The ultimate geekiness


Matthieu and I stayed in Montreal for a while after Worldcon, to do some sightseeing (we’re leaving tomorrow). We visited the McCord Museum, which tells the history of the city from a social point of view (how people winter, how they have fun, how they make money and how they meet each other). Not that it wasn’t interesting, but there was one corner of the museum that drew our attention…
Turns out they were having an exhibition on space travel in popular culture, and that one of the pieces was a giant Lego Death Star. Awesome…

So, ya know, like the geeks that we are, we felt compelled to take lots of pictures…
