Now there’s a certain subset of geeks who camp and hike and bike and do all manner of outdoors-related stuff. That’s just not us. So when we head out to the beach or the pool for a day spent basking in the glow of our favorite fusion reactor, we’re generally outside our comfort zone.

In that case, we like to bring our comfort zone with us in the form of a good book and these board shorts. They’re printed with water, sand, and the compressed two-dimensional form of water and silica molecules, like a gentle reminder that science is all around us.

That’s a lot of patience for Absorption IV, Regeneration II, Resistance, and a Fire Resistance buff. But it’s worth it for the ability to take a stroll through some lava.
