Some things you really shouldn't read while eating. Email from my niece...

Give them all to the Stilthies, they can get high in them. It worked for the Sollies.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Bantering back and forth with my niece. A funny quick witted little princess...

"That really is hilarious honey, the Stilthies were getting soooo high."

"Not only that Uncle. They were getting so high they were hallucinating. Same as the Sollies."

" :lol: "

My niece...

How do you increase Solly SD compensator efficiency?

Retard retardation.


How many Solly SDs does it take to return home from a mission?

Several hundred to be destroyed. Several hundred to be captured and one smart enough to have feigned sadness from engine problems before completing the trip.

"Aww, I'm sorry, but it seems we can't continue on with this mission."


She's on a roll. I try to jump in...

The problem with their Scientist class are that their scientists never actually attended any class.

So maybe that's a sure way to increase compensator efficiency. Fire the scientists.

She fires back...

I doubt that they really wanted to increase efficiency. Why be in a hurry to meet your doom?


I am ROTF. I'm going to submit these to the Humor thread for sure.

She's a gem bro.

Just my opinion of course and probably not worth the paper it's not written on.

Actually I have a use for the 'dreaded' captured Solarian Superdreadnoughts & it's to do with how the first bollards were created in England...*

Any airless planet, moon or asteroid that needs a docking tower just drive the things deep into the ground & then fix ceramecrete around the hole they just made to keep them upright & in position.

* In England the first bollards were made by taking redundant naval cannon, setting them upright in the pavement & then hammering an outsized cannonball into the muzzle. Although they don't make them that way anymore most of them still retain the same shape.

I seem to remember also seeing pictures of cannons buried muzzle down as bollards / hitching posts -- the cast trunions being exposed make it easier to tie off to

Exactly how big are space ponies?
