I've lived here 6+ years and never made it to the fair. I tried the first two years and was thwarted by weather and parking. Then I was like "I don't do the State Fair."
Until our lab has an opportunity to bring out research mobile to the fair. It's basically a lab on wheels. The outside reminds me of Xanadu. I made the remark when I first saw it and I think it was lost on everyone due to age and growing up in another country.
