Heads Up! Holiday Break Coming. [ Dec 16, 2016 ]
We at BHP wanted to give you a little heads up that next Friday, December 23rd, will be the final strip of Quantum Vibe for 2016. "Gasp!" you exclaim? Well, worry not concerned reader, for this is merely our annual one week break for the production staff to take a well earned rest and enjoy the holidays (as we hope you will as well). New strips will begin again Monday, January 2nd, 2017.
The Transcript For This Page
The trio approach a section in the wall where doors have slid open to reveal a row of five high-backed seats, facing to the right.
Buford: So how does t'is tube t'ing work?
Nicole: A combination of magnetics and pneumatics. We board this capsule, and air gets pumped out of the section of tube in front of us ...
The trio strap themselves into the rear three of the five seats. It's a tight fit for Buford.
Nicole: ... while magnetic accelerators move us forward at high-grav.
Nicole: Most of the tube is vacuum, so there's little friction along the mag-lev track. We coast most of the way to the other end.
The girls, seated, brace for departure.
Buford: Oh, t'ey haf somet'ing like t'at between t'e domed cities on Luna.
Buford: I never rode on 'em, t'ough.
Buford: How fast do t'ey accelerate?
As the capsule leaps forward, the high-acceleration pushes the girls back into their seats.
Nicole: Oh, nudding doo exdweme.
