Have you ever seen a full turbonic solar eclipse? It’s mesmerizing. It happens when the sun is blocked by the rising of the Great Turbo, which compresses our air to greater densities, improving humanity’s performance for the same amount of human displacement. The glowing area around the turbine is called a corona, and you shouldn’t look directly at it.

I unironically love these. What a weirdly cool malaise era offering. Kinda the precursor to the “turbo all the things” era we live in now.

It’s too bad it was such a piece of shit.

They can be worked up though. If you’re committed to the bit.
