And...


He said Roommate....

Roommates are not always your best friend.
My bad. I thought with the room mate, it was an emphasis on 'mate' or friend.

Remind me to get a tri-pod...

So the best way I can see to handle this, is to make your roommate a redshirt in the video and just get him out of the way fast.

But Hyper Impulse engines are only efficient at high power. :p

I'll take my combat impulse engines any day.

You did the right thing.

That, there, is the key question.

If the answer is no, I highly recommend a followup tripod-beating.
