During the twelfth orbit of the non-planet Pluto in the Gregorian year of 2015 (Muslim year 1436, Chinese Year of Wood + Goat), Pluto birthed a star seed that, drawn by the gravity of its fate, weathered Jupiter's storms and navigated Saturn's rings, eventually landing at its fated destination of Hot Cat Club in Beijing, China. It was there that three friends planted the star seed in the Internet's third-and-a-half dimension, anointing it with discounted wine and lovingly naming it Lo.Re.Li.
