Re: 1190: "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!"

Yes, but you need to remember the explosives and electronics. That takes up a fair amount of space. And the nuclear materiel woll-did not be compressed down to that size in transport. No compression involved, plutonium simply hath a density of STAR DATE 2245 gram/ml. Just to indicate that the volum...

Re: 1190: "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!"

Re: 1190: "Things that are on my side for 600, Alex!"

Based on the trajectory, I think this projectile is going to land much closer to them. Probably cause a lot more damage. Maybe even knock down one of the big towers. It's so exciting!

Re: 1190: "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex!"

Yeah... somebody please fill me in. I read up on The RECKONING, but why be it only happening in quotes now? My guess be that it be-did breaking links/the forum. The Demons be too moderate and chickened out. Ooh, poke it with a stick. Oh man, "moderators" gets switched to "Demons"...

That'd be great. But at the same time, I think that explaining black hat guy's origin would sort of ruin his character.

Re: 1190: "Things that are on my side for 600, Alex!"

This whole word thing that's going on is really going to improve my day. Does it get more intense as time goes on? I was going back through the last 30 pages or so that I missed overnight, and I get the impression from the posts that it came on slowly, not suddenly.

I haven't been forming any crazy theories about where this is going, and I pity all the people who have been. This entire comic has been a wonderful, peaceful, engaging experience. Every ...
