There’s no “there” there…

I couldn’t resist the Hunt for the Gay Planet, and while I appreciated the author’s sense of humor, in the end I think he/she must’ve lost interest in the project.  I don’t think I need to worry about spoiling it for anyone else, because there’s nothing to spoil.  The hunt consists of poking around on four different planets, three of which appear to be exactly the same.  As far as I can tell, there is no gay planet to be found (was that the point?), and in fact there’s no resolution to the story at all.  Really, there’s not much of anything to be found on any of the planets, other than an occasional mildly amusing turn of phrase.  All of this left me wondering if there isn’t some sort of puzzle that I’ve simply failed to crack, and I guess the joke will be on me if I’ve somehow missed the point completely.  Up until now, I’ve purposefully avoided reading anyone else’s posts for fear of spoiling the surprise.  Now I’m curious to see if anyone else managed to get anything more out of the Hunt than I did…

  1. The short answer is yes, you did miss something. In the cave with the four cardinal directions, you have to explore all four then go back to the south cave to find something that leads you to the rest of the story.

  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
