"I swallowed an ice cube whole and I haven't pooped it out" will be the title of the first Nacho Sasha book.

I used to post links to OTIS in these threads all the time... Don't know why I stopped.

This one, though, has RC's name all over it:

This was interesting:

But one of the reference links lead me to read an entire article about the flood control plans for the Mississippi River:

Super fun read... even if I'm mind-boggled by people who understand the mathematics of physics.

What I find mind-boggling is that they don't mention inertial dampeners, which is the granddaddy of sci-fi tropes -- first used in Forbidden Planet and then used in every sci-fi movie and TV show since, including Star Wars. So, for the folks inside the Falcon, there are...no G's.
