The thing about portal travel over that distance would be the sudden change in the pollen profile. Suddenly discovering hitherto unknown allergies, and not gradually like on a road trip. One breath would be all the pollutants you’re used to, next breath would be a full lungful of exciting new spores and molds. Even if you had really mild seasonal allergies, I think the sudden change would tickle the stoutest sinuses.

I lucked out on the allergy front, personally. I sneeze about six times in the spring, take a loratadine, and I’m pretty much good for the year. My wife on the other hand loves mangos, and you guessed it, is allergic to mangos. Isn’t that always the way? I’m fully indifferent to mangos. I don’t actively seek them out, but if a juice blend has mango in it, I don’t actively avoid it. I guess I’m actually not a fan of just straight up slices of mango. It’s kind of slimy feeling. They’re like… anti-pears. I mean, pears are kind of slimy too, but they’re also gritty. I guess mangos are really anti-apples. Apples being crisp and fibrous, and non-slimy.

Really went off on a tangent there. Anyway, superheroes!

The December Vote Incentive is still up! The new on is being worked on.
