Nucleus No. One


I was planning to share a photo today, but at the last minute I decided to re-process it. So, instead, here’s… another… nucleus (Nucleus No. Two here). Have a great weekend, everyone (I’m off to re-launch Photoshop).

Security: “Sir, could you please empty your pockets and pass through again?”

Me: “That’s funny… I didn’t think I had anything on me… just  a few coins…”

Security: “Okay, okay, just try it again, please.”

*buzz buzz buzz*

Security: “Okay, sir, I’m going to have to ask you just one more time…”

Me: “Oh, wait…  you don’t think it could be this GIANT aluminum frame?!”
