This is my eleventh Q of the 2020 Q Challenge.

An invitation from Go Long to his godson BOOM! to post Ambassador this past Saturday has renewed my 2.0’s interest in posting. We had planned to post at the Carl on Monday. However, a late Sunday night spent volunteering with the Y Guides led BOOM! to call a smartsack (after I’d already gotten dressed). This morning is a different story and we are off with time to spare.

Pulling into the parking lot a few minutes early, I notice a mostly empty parking lot. Where is everybody? I’ve Q’d fewer, but it’s still surprising for The Forge.

YHC is pleasantly surprised that after an approximate two year hiatus, 2.0 BOOM! is interested in posting again so I’m rolling with it.

It was definitely strange to have so few PAX at The Forge. I wondered more than once, “Where is Everybody?”, which reminded me of the classic first episode of The Twilight Zone. While writing this backblast, I stumbled across the following image. It was tweeted back in April by Rod Serling’s daughter, Anne. The image’s quote from Rod’s final monologue of the episode seems like a fitting end to an F3 backblast.

“You see, we can feed the stomach with concentrates, we can supply microfilm for reading, recreation, even movies of a sort, we can pump oxygen in, and waste material out, but there’s one thing we can’t simulate. That’s a very basic need. Man’s hunger for companionship. The barrier of loneliness, that’s one thing we haven’t licked yet.”
