The last time I saw Big Logos he was walking to the Quantum Physics Store to buy magnets. He told me his intentions. He was wearing a jumpsuit with frayed cuffs. I thought the cuffs got that way from him rubbing them against his lips but he said they got that way with age. We had two more blocks to walk. "Once I do this, what are you going to do?" he asked. "I wish you wouldn't do it," I said. Big Logos bought the magnets and a crane delivered them to his house. After he built the 900-megahertz superconductor, I couldn't go to his house anymore because I have all kinds of metal in my body. I think if you love someone, you shouldn't do that, build something like that, on purpose, right in front of them.
