Always handy to have such tools on hand.

    I’ve seen some remarkable jobs of stump-blasting so the concept of using explosives to find out how tough the job might be isn’t strange to me. Given the strength of “Spacetrawler”‘s hull to begin with, I wouldn’t worry if those packets were up to producing fifteen atmospheres of pressure on detonation each.

    Of course, if they’re all set off at once, in an attempt to save time (and maybe skip the exploration part), things could get messy. But I thought these guys were already mining Gordian repellium and antirepellium, and so should know what amount of expensive explosives to use without wasting money.

    Shouldn’t they?

    Oh, Hey, Christopher! I found the old “Cookrookery” web site on the Internet Archive, and have made your recipe for penuche! Just as delicious as I remember. Only problem is that I was so paranoid about beating it too long that I think I stopped beating it just a little too soon, so the cut pieces want to flow into each other like a sweet candy Terminator. I guess I’ll just have to make some more.
