    I assumed such obvious insanity didn't even need to be dismissed.

    I mean, I pay Lopez's "repair" bills. Even if I was into that kind of thing, well, Lopez is a hero and all, don't get me wrong, but knowing where he puts his parts...

    I would not want any sensitive parts of my body anywhere near him.

    Missed you.

    You're on the list now.

    Also, what attractions would you all like at X-COM land? Right now we have a model of a UFO with authentic UFO navigation and alien alloy construction for the kids to run around in, an Interceptor high speed roller coaster, and a recruitment booth at the target range. Any other ideas?

    The skyranger music system needs "O Fortuna." It's a necessity.

    As for the theme park, I'd say it needs stuffed Lopez dolls, except that nobody is supposed to know anything about anyone in X-Com. So instead, we'll have to make do with "Bumper-Tanks."

    Right. Added titles to all the earlier posts, so now there's one more joke per post, bringing the average to... .43 items of actual humor a post. Still better than Ctrl Alt Delete, at least.

    (Of course, the only reason I did this is so I can title the post where we get flying suits "To the everlasting glory of the mobile infantry.")

    More... preventing. I hear it gets dull if you savescum, insanely hard if you don't, and it's got a downer ending. Frankly, dropping Cthulhu before he starts stirring seems a good idea. Might run a mission or two for flavor later, though.


    Also, Cubey, on reviewing your credentials, you qualify (barely) for the Sci team.

    You want in on that, or do you want to drop with the grunts?

    I'd rather be among the 50 (or 100, or how many you have) annonymous thinkers, thank you very much. Being totally unrecognisable in-game and hired/fired en masse like slaves or cattle beats having to face death is the sacrifice I am willing to make to ensure others have more fun on the battlefield.

    We could also transfer him to Public Relations and actually send him there as a target. This way, no description would be necessary.


    Of course, it's hard to tell if he'd scare the kids away or if they'd just laugh at him.

    Although, that could actually be used to sort out prospective recruits.
