So many “ifs” of course reminds m of the wonder Jaques in Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” in his ramble about the “seventh cause.” Brilliant.
“All these you may avoid but the Lie Direct; and you may avoid that too, with an If. I knew when seven justices could not take up a quarrel, but when the parties were met themselves, one of them thought but of an If, as, ‘If you said so, then I said so;’ and they shook hands and swore brothers. Your If is the only peacemaker; much virtue in If.”
I think the strip is missing the sound effects of Bikkie having already dispatched a few Bollycks.
They are gloriously present in my mind though.
@C.B. Vincent Goudreault, good point! Added. Thank you.
If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them….maybe you can hire… The Blood! Team.
Yes! Actually laughed out loud. Nicely done!
I love it when a plan comes together.
They’ll be back in a iffy.
I think we all knew how this was going to end.
Wait, if lasers don’t work, but spears do, why not bullets?
@cozypierogi, bullets also put holes in hulls. 🙂
Marines on ships use shotguns. The pellets don’t puncture as much? In an enclosed space it’s very unpleasant for the enemy.
So have them make frangible bullets. Suggested before, totally safe to hull.
Also Bikkie needs a baseball bat.
Because it wouldn’t be as fun that way!
Something’s wrong. I anticipated the clowder of fists against obdurate Bollyck hide and I’m not hearing it. Are they that far away from the hatch? Then where are they trying to break in?
Um, I run an aviation RPG on the side, and the issue of bullets aboard pressurized aircraft came up more than once. On their own initiative, my players discovered that we already make frangible bullets for use aboard aircraft. They will penetrate flesh, but on striking a more-rigid plastic or metal structure like the fuselage, shatter into relatively harmless fragments. I really had hoped they’d go for sonic weapons, but when they can go get frangible rounds on the Web, it becomes a moot point. I have fairly remarkable players, I should say.
Besides, you can aim frangible bullets at particular troublemakers; but how do you keep sonic weapons from also taking out the pilots?
Um… I would answer that but I suspect it will invalidate a patent I haven’t yet applied for and give things away for a book I haven’t written yet. Sorry.
But keep watching the skies!
Clowder is a word, for a group of cats. 🙂 They may also be a clutter, pounce, dout, nuisance, glorying, or a glare.
Bikkie has the ability to be a one kangaroo troop or mob. 🙂
