What do you learn as a steampunker ?

Me:

-Scientific evolution is not a linear processus.

-It is programation, not technologie who make a computer.

-We should give more credit to our ancestors.

- To believe in this:

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Myself as a prop fabricator I've learned that the conventionally 'accepted' means of solving a problem is often reached when such thinking is side-stepped into the else-worldly.

Brass that looks 'cold' after soldering never is.
Someone always has a better hat, goggles, ray gun than you (just be the best you can and learn).
'Metric time' doesn't work (time machines only work with multiples of 12).
Absinthe and lathes don't mix (it only seems like a good idea at the time).
If you're not having fun...you're doing it wrong
Only a fool 'tea duels' with earl grey.

And finally

Non Steampunkers are generally rather accommodating of our little eccentricities.

A simple stroll with friends will take three times as long as it should
One for the stroll,
two for the charity shops were simply have to look,
and three for the "Excuse me, can we take a photograph?"

There seems to be a so far undiscovered form of gravity, attracting some folks to skips, charity shops,.....

It also seems to affect one´s vision. Junk for one, valuable spares or "might be useful"-parts for us.

It is easier to look at a plate of spaghetti and spot the two ends connected by a single strand than to guess what a Steampunk does for a living.

Wherever two or three steampunks are gathered together eight people will want to take photo's, four will want to discuss your outfits and an indeterminate number will know that you are Steampunks.
