...the ongoing effort to present the entirety of the world's knowledge in one central location, one subject matter at a time. From the controversies of the Battle of Bull Run to the inside scoop on Spizerinctum Clubs, you will find in Fascinatum what seems, at first glance, to be an arbitrarily accumulated body of facts, truths, and principles. But look a bit further. We think you'll find, in both the obscurity of Sidewalk Intersections or the practical realities of Thinking About Motion Pictures, the matters of Fascinatum are indeed at the very foundation of the vital and informed existence we strive for. The World is most certainly a fascinating place and the world of Fascinatum is a fascinating place to be reminded of just that.
We sincerely hope to be of assistance to you in your interest in being fascinated. For a deeper understanding of the Fascinatum mission, read our invitation to participate below.

They will confer with kings and presidents, artists and philosophers, and feel their wisdom feed their own.
Travelers will journey into a drop of water, and into the heart of the earth, beyond the moon, and beyond the stars, plunging to the very rim of all of man's knowledge. They will hear the witching tales of travelers who have gone before them, and blaze a trail for all those who follow. They will question much, and come to understand even more. And they will never be the same.
If you are up to this kind of challenge, accept it now. For it is your distant voyage to take any time, here in the pages of Mike Dust Fascinatum..."
