    • Inspiration: A poem by Dale Arnold
      Running Balticon is like:
      Using wet noodles to herd cats through the legs of Buffalo
      who are stampeding through a minefield full of catnip,
      after the buffalo have been set on fire at night by a UFO,
      as you keep your eyes closed because those are the rules,
      and you are being graded on style without a curve.
