23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here.
The centuries that we spent devising physics, mathematics, chemistry, engineering, metallurgy...
All of our combined knowledge and technological advancements as a species
were to finally culminate in the creation of a machine of such flawless beauty
that it now clearly stands out as human civilization's crowning achievement:
And upon its completion, those present
were unable to do anything but stand and marvel
in wonder and in awe at the sleek,
black aerodynamic perfection...
That was Airwolf.
— Ernest Cline, from his spoken word album "The Geek Wants Out"
