Marathons impact on everyday life
Posted By: BlayneDate: 12/7/05 3:49 p.m.

After finishing another essay for university, running Appleworks spellchecker reminded me how much Bungie's Marathon pervades everyday life for me.

It goes beyond physical reminders of Marathon. Rather, it's the subtle fact my spell checker insists the correct spelling of "Oberon" is in fact "Nebulon", and that at the top of every other suggest word list is "Thoth".

Perhaps I'm the only person who experiences a jolt of weird excitement when he sees the word "Marathon" in a BattleStar Galatica SF channel ad, or who percieves my local "Television Road" for something other than it really is.
Does anyone else encounter things like in day to day life?
