Back in November of 2006 — the days of the original Blogmic Encounter site — I posted the photo above in one of those "I really feel like I should post something moments." I figured it would generate maybe a few chuckles and one or two comments. "Hey, look! Beer and Cosmic Encounter!" I never gave it a second thought.
Instead, it turned out to be one of the most popular things I ever posted in roughly 30 months of Cosmic Encounter-related writing. I still have no idea why, although it is sort of a cool image.
Who the hell knows, as the kids say.
