Well I have played too much X as I ordered Sushi take out on the phone the other night and asked for a fried Bofu Salad and when the woman said what I said it again a fried Bofu Salad please, Well Tofu did show up, lucky me as my lady likes her Tofu fried, and she had a strange look on her face when I hung up, Whats Bofu she asked, I smiled and said wrong universe.
Some nights I go to bed with green grid lines zipping by in my head when i close my eyes, like I am running on the eliptic display.
Well I have not ordered a Beefsteak Cahoonas for lunch yet,
Or hear voices welcoming me back to my bathroom when i enter in the morning.
Keep the X growing

If I fart while in space will it make a sound?

Posted by: Buttman on 30.06.99 09:45:44

Dont think it will smell either.

Posted by: Nicos Gollan on 30.06.99 15:18:16

Of course it smells, and it makes a (very weak) sound. Of course these are only perceptible to those creatures that can travel in space unprotected (that's "without suffering from explosive decompression"). Furthermore, that (hypothetic) creature's got to have a very sensitive hearing and a BIG nose th catch the faint smell of methane. It has to be able to survive extreme subzero/heat situations.

Prove it....

Posted by: Nicos Gollan on 01.07.99 14:20:01

Just come up here and watch.

Ehh....ok..i guess,...I believe you.

Only space-sim fans could have such an intriguing conversation...

> I just heard the description of spaceflies. Anyone ever wondered how do they communicate by sound in space? Woocash the Curious *********************************************************************** *********************************************************************** Yeah. The rub their little legs in a megahigh frequency which produces a subatomic shift of the space continuum in hyper space. This causes the acceleration of triple quantums to a quarkplane state. In this state the Einstein effect takes over and permits the formation of overexited wolfram emitting Doppler framps. As those framps are emitted in a precise and single polar direction, it permits the spaceflies to change the modulation of the megahigh frequency and hence differently spaced framps produce different meanings. I would have thought everyone knew this, obviously I am wrong. Happy hunting. THANK you EGOSOFT for keeping the E L I T E spirit alive. Commander Jamieson
