Challenge 103

Going with the Flow of Traffic

Let’s start with a little free association here. What do Gaia, “The Bridge,” “Ask Athena” and “Metacommentary” have in common? Water. Add “Adverse Selection”: now what? Boats. Add “Si vis pacem.” : vehicles.

Vehicles go places. And yet, for the most part, they repeat in this issue the refrain from Paint Your Wagon:

Where are you goin’? — I don’t know.
When will you get there? — I ain’t certain.
All I know is I am on my way.
But all voyages lead to a discovery of some sort. Now add “Bound in a Nutshell.”: the character travels simply by going to and from his room. What kinds of discoveries are made on the voyages in issue 103?
