Marc Vader September 1, 2020 at 2:54 am 2 years ago Number one rule for beings with squishy lungs during a decompression of the atmosphere: never, never hold your breath. It will you quickly. Erhannis September 1, 2020 at 10:23 am 2 years ago Yeah, you’re also taught never to hold your breath while scuba diving, for risk of damaging your lungs during ascent, for the same reason. The Shadow September 1, 2020 at 1:34 pm 2 years ago Beat me to it. It seems that Stangor doesn’t know much about space… or she wants Ruddock to die. Christopher Baldwin September 1, 2020 at 10:11 pm 2 years ago Thank you all for pointing that out about lungs exploding! I had looked up if you could survive in space (yes, but not for long), but missed the bit about not holding you breath. As someone who is PADI certified, I should have known! Anyhow, I adjusted the text so it’s not horribly wrong. 0z79 September 1, 2020 at 5:14 am 2 years ago She really is a squirrel, isn’t she? Mentally at least. nightgaunt492015 September 1, 2020 at 3:27 pm 2 years ago You have 10 seconds. Holding your breath will collapse your lungs faster. Your blood will boil and you will be desiccated quickly as you either freeze in the shade or burn in the starlight. So don’t do that. Pete Rogan September 1, 2020 at 5:53 pm 2 years ago “Spacetrawler” really needs its flight-control system looked at. It’s swinging waaaay too wide if Stangor and Ruddock are being bashed against nearby architecture. You could end up in a bad accident that way — like, landing at a crowded spacedock with other ships nearby, or failing to clear an entry port just three meters too narrow. Stangor better get reeling like now, man. Muzhik September 1, 2020 at 11:29 pm 2 years ago Stangor better get reeling like now, man. I believe his whatchamacallit snaggle thing is still pulling them up, which means the “whaps” and “bashes” are coming faster and faster. I picture them being bambambambam against the edges of the entry, much like a spaghetti noodle will hit the side of your face as you suck it up through your lips. caloosarat September 1, 2020 at 10:02 pm 2 years ago Best page in the story.5 FlySwatter September 2, 2020 at 9:59 am 2 years ago For some reason, being reeled in reminds me of the (God-awful) Police Academy movie with Bobcat Goldthwait endlessly falling down the stairs crying “That didn’t hurt”, “That didn’t hurt”, “That didn’t hurt” Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
