Goo For The Goo Throne

He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.
--Douglas Adams

With a lack of kills after my short hiatus, I still have no new adventures to share.  So I instead offer some old tales of people exploding and advice that, hopefully, someone will find helpful.  Don't worry though, I've since gotten out there to get blown up and will be sharing those tales in my next post.

Communing With EVE

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
--Douglas Adams

Will you look at that?  I seem to have missed a couple of posts.  Guess my all-powerful posting queue didn't have as much material in it as I had hoped.  Well, let's take a look at what I've been up to and what I've missed.

Cheapfleet, Best Fleet

Humans are not proud of their ancestors and rarely invite them round for dinner.
--Douglas Adams

Toterra has announced the winners of his Cheapfleet Challenge.  Through some miscount of the votes, I seem to have won some stuff.  What do you mean he was the only one voting?  Hrmm...must have been a really long typographical error then.  Regardless of the circumstances, since someone other than myself seemed to have validated my Crucifier fit as not completely worthless, I thought I'd share some background info on where the fitting came from, and by proxy some of the background info on where I came from.

Strangest Thing All Week

They live in perpetual fear of the time they call "The Coming of the Great White Handkerchief."
--Douglas Adams

Sometimes people scare me.  In that sort of "I fear for the future of the human race," kind of way.  This is one of those times.

Okay, the supposedly rocket-proof glass hadn't stood up, when it came to it, to an actual rocket, but then that had been a rocket that had been fired at very short range from inside, which probably wasn't what the engineers who designed it had had in mind.
--Douglas Adams

Last week I mentioned Rockets vs. Turrets on the Vengeance and promised a more in depth look at them in a future post.  Well, look at that.  It's the future.  And here's that post.

Recent Happenings

The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
--Douglas Adams

I'm going to be taking a bit of a detour for today's topic.  With all the recent events, what with Fanfest happening, I figured I should at least say something about it all.  So I've decided to stick my nose where it has no business being and comment on a number of different topics that I probably have a poor understanding of.  What could possibly go wrong?
