Calgary isn’t cool just because it loves Body/Antibody. It’s cool because it is living in the freaking future.
For one, people who live there are called Calgerians. I am not 100% sure, but I’m pretty sure it was the Calgerians who sold the Romulans the technology to build the cloaking device.
Also: almost all of downtown is connected by a series of tubes fifteen feet above the ground. They call this the +15 and it is awesome. You can enter a building, go up to the second floor, wander down a bunch of hallways, then go outside again — and be TWENTY BLOCKS AWAY!
And these aren’t just any hallways. These are, like, awesome, space-age hallways. Lots of THX-1138 white and glass. But what’s *really* cool is that you are just wandering around in other peoples’ offices all day. Seriously. As you go in the buildings on your way to each new tunnel — you are seeing people on their way to meetings and stuff. And then — a shopping mall! And then — an indoor garden! Straight out of Silent Running. No! I am not making this up! It is awesome! The +15 is the largest of these things anywhere — bigger than Minneapolis’ “Skyway,” in case you were wondering.
