    There’s something awe-inspiring that happens at the intersection of “Neato!” and “Get A Life!”

    Like the guy that built the 1:72 replica of the USS Enterprise (CVN-65, not NCC-1701), accurate to the smallest detail, down to researching which squadrons and a/c were aboard on a given day in the mid ’80s…

    The thing takes up an entire room of his house, which has its own separate HVAC system to keep it at the optimum temperature and humidity.

    As you view it, your mind wants to shout “WOW!” and “Seek help. Now.” at the same time…
