* CargoCult: The Terrorists' acid-induced worship of the Big Wheel and its avatar, Fenrick's Go Big Red Fan.


Added DiffLines:

* GeekPhysiques: Both Casimir and Fred Fine are the "unhealthily skinny" kind.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanU: The novel manages to avoid either extreme version of Strawman U, but the SUB and the unionized professors would fit in well at a Berserkeley, and the administration and Temple of Unlimited Godhead (a fundamentalist Mormon offshoot) are close to a Jim Jonestown.
