We had four cadets, one returning! Patent Pending, Truck Stop, Lasagna Mode, and Starout. Double Huzzah!!
Create mission parameters for a SCUL mission based on previous missions on SCUL.org.
Chat GPT Bot:
Objective: To explore new parts of the city and take in its unique architecture and atmosphere on bicycles.
Duration: The mission should last for approximately 2-3 hours.
Route: The route should include a mix of both urban and suburban areas of the city, as well as some off-road trails and bike lanes. The route should be planned in advance to ensure safety and efficiency.
Pace/Intensity: The mission should be of moderate intensity, with an average speed of approximately 10-15 miles per hour.
Group Size: The ideal group size is between 8-12 riders, in order to maintain safety and cohesion.
Equipment and Requirements: All riders should have a working bicycle and wear appropriate safety gear. Additional items, such as lights or lockable bags, may also be necessary based on the route and planned stops. It is also recommended that each rider bring a water bottle and snacks.
Communication: Riders should communicate with each other through designated hand signals and verbal cues to ensure safety and prevent accidents.
Stops: The mission should include planned stops at various locations, such as parks, historical sites, or local businesses, to take in the sights and support local establishments.
Documentation: Riders should document the mission through photographs and videos, to share with the SCUL community and promote future missions.
Attitude: The mission should promote positivity, inclusivity, and a love for cycling and exploration. Negative behavior or attitudes will not be tolerated.
Okay that's a very thorough description of a typical SCUL mission but it lacks imagination.
Due to time travel issues and technical problems with droids, we were unable to launch on time. Fortunately we were able to mind-meld with Mission Control so it won't happen again. Once we got under way, things got way posi. We meandered through the Allston Systems lesser known starpaths, and into Harvard Constellation. We screamed our heads off through many underpasses, which we like to do because of the echoes.
PIG Saint Christopher
had propulsion issues and dropped out of warp. We gathered the fleet in Cambridge Common to make repairs. Luckily we have a Threespeed
to work on three-speed. After the work was done, we asked the robot for more guidance.
Where's should I get snacks in Harvard square on late Saturday night - if I'm a space pilot?
Chat GPT Bot:
If you're a space pilot looking for a late-night snack in Harvard Square, here are some unique options to consider:
1. Felipe's Taqueria: This Mexican restaurant is open until 2am on Saturdays, making it a great option for a late-night snack. They offer a variety of tacos, burritos, and other Mexican dishes.
2. The Friendly Toast: This quirky diner is open until midnight on Saturdays and offers a range of breakfast and comfort food options. Try their "Out of this World" omelette or the "Rocket Fuel" coffee to keep your energy up for your space travels.
3. The Sinclair: This music venue and restaurant is open until 1am on Saturdays and offers a range of small plates, including sliders and truffle fries. It's a great spot to grab a snack and catch some live music.
4. Insomnia Cookies: If you have a sweet tooth, Insomnia Cookies is open until 3am on Saturdays and offers a range of warm cookies and ice cream sandwiches. They even offer delivery to nearby locations if you can't make it to the shop.
5. Pinocchio's Pizza & Subs: This classic pizza joint is open until 1am on Saturdays and offers a variety of pizza slices, subs, and other Italian dishes. It's a great spot to grab a quick bite before heading back to your spaceship.
These are just a few options that should satisfy any space pilot's late-night snack cravings in Harvard Square.
Not bad! We opted for Insomnia Cookies.
On the way we stopped a the marvelous and high-tech fuel dumping station known as 'the public restroom', where we deployed barnacles and hung out. Marvelous!
Mmm, warm cookies and cold ice cream - or was it the other way around? Sometimes things are so cold they feel hot, and vicey versey. Many Klingons, some returning, joined the ranks.
Once pilots were sugared up we all wanted to know if we should derby. At this point we knew the bot had a tendency to be verbose and indirect, so we asked the very direct question:
Should SCUL derby yes or no?
Chat GPT bot:
Whether or not to participate in SCUL Derby is ultimately a personal decision that depends on your interests and priorities. SCUL (Subversive Choppers Urban Legion) is a Boston-based social biking club that combines elements of cycling, performance art, and community building. SCUL Derby is an event that takes place every summer, in which teams of bikers compete in a scavenger hunt-style race through the city.
If you enjoy cycling, socializing with like-minded individuals, and participating in fun, community-oriented events, then SCUL Derby could be a great fit for you. The event typically involves a lot of creativity and silliness, with teams often dressing up in costumes and decorating their bikes.
However, if you're not a fan of cycling, or if you prefer more traditional forms of competition, then SCUL Derby may not be for you. It's also worth noting that the event can be physically demanding, as participants bike around the city for several hours.
Ultimately, the decision to participate in SCUL Derby is up to you. If you're interested in learning more, I would recommend checking out SCUL's website or social media channels to get a better sense of what the event entails and whether it aligns with your interests.
Ugh! Chat GPT bot doesn't know what derby is, and won't admit it! So we decided to show it. Our amazing navigator eXceSs
took us to the lonely Watertown Skate Park, which was a perfect spot for us to play. Maggots ruled the derby arena, and some were well on their way to becoming aces.
After that it was getting late, and we decided to head home whether Chat GPT bot wanted us to or not.
HEY CHATBOT - SCUL STANDS FOR "SCUL CAN'T USE ACRONYMS"! SAYS SO ON THE FRONT PAGE.
Anhway... mission status success! Huzzah!
