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. Gregg Eshelman November 16, 2020 at 10:53 pm 10 months ago Birds also excrete a lot of that intake. Rikard November 10, 2020 at 2:16 am 10 months ago 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? Garth Hill November 10, 2020 at 6:20 am 10 months ago probably bake them in a cake. Pete Rogan November 10, 2020 at 9:01 pm 10 months ago 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. Gregg Eshelman November 16, 2020 at 10:56 pm 10 months ago Seems to have some things in common with upsidaisium from that Rocky and Bullwinkle episode. Coyoty November 10, 2020 at 2:53 am 10 months ago Both the void and Ciara’s sister are like the oil in an oil and water relationship. The rest of the universe doesn’t want to mix with them. Peter Ware November 10, 2020 at 6:37 am 10 months ago The oily bits do. Flyswatter November 10, 2020 at 8:55 am 10 months ago AAAAAND? Kaidah November 10, 2020 at 8:57 am 10 months ago I bet she’d be less cranky if she ate more. Pete Rogan November 10, 2020 at 9:04 pm 10 months ago 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. russell styles November 10, 2020 at 10:23 pm 10 months ago That handwavium is thick around here as well. If we can swallow an unknown human species with strong telekinesis, this won’t be any problem. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
