Sometimes, no matter how much you really DON’T want to, you just HAVE to hear the punchline.

    If you eat like a bird you can take in several entire bird masses to keep it running every day. A horse eats much less in relation to its body weight.

    Though a comparison of mass intake between a bird and a human the bulk amounts are less for the bird. Which Ciara’s thoughts on it in relation to her sister.

    I would suggest Ciara exaggerates some.

    Repellium atoms? Good one! Repels all atoms, including presumably other Gordik Repellium atoms, and hence can’t form gross bodies of matter or combine into other elements.

    Hm, it works rather tidily; the Calama Void being the one place Gordik Repellium atoms winds up shunted to by other matter, held in place by the star’s gravitational field while being to dispersed to generate concentrated gravity on their own.

    Hm, now how would one go about to weaponize said Gordik Repellium atoms?

      Attach some to the bottom of a projectile, put said projectile against a bed of Gordik repellium, and let fly!

      A large-enough projectile could be filled with Gordik repellium, and when it breaks through a wall and cracks open, the repellium inside will shred the bunker, tank, ship, or whatever, in proportion to the volume (mass seems an improper standard here) of the shell.

      Easy-peasy, not-so-sleazy.

    So who is it that has the technology to assemble enough Gordik repellium to make a Dyson sphere of this size? How did they locate and capture it? How did they keep the structure from exploding before the final block was in place?

    Engineering and astrophysics: The gifts that keep on giving, even when you want them to stop.
