Guest Author's Note: "I'm not too much of a stickler for realism - I'm more for consistency and internal rationalism. Sure, it may not make sense for Pegasi to fly from a 'realism' standpoint, but once you know how the world works, it makes perfect sense. Of course, in a tabletop game, sometimes players use their knowledge of the unrealistic world to argue, realistically, for more unrealistic things.

"As for the actual comic this was a learning experience on quite a few levels, and this is definitely something I'd like to do again - when I'm not so rusty with Photoshop and when I'm not prohibited from grabbing screencaps for monstrously stupid - even contrived – reasons."

Well, if you built it, I'm sure that implied consent. ;)

Craziest contraption I've built as a player was taking an old P-38 lightning and replacing the prop engines with rocket engines. The cockpit was rebuilt with a computer pilot (because for some reason no one wanted to test-fly this thing) and it was a good thing for the rebuild--

After take off from the ground, the plane exploded at an altitude of about 5,000 feet when the right engine's fuel pump malfunctioned. This got the attention of a few federal agencies, because apparently there are laws and permits to abide by...

P-38? With rocket engines? DOesn't that mean both booms had to be removed along with the elevator and rudders?

...That might partially explain the catastrophic failure of it's maiden flight.

lol. "Implies consent". Sounds like the beginning of a legal defense or cross-examination in a rape case.

Also lol. Yes. Yes there is quite a few regulations regarding everything from unmanned aircraft to experimental aircraft, to commercial aircraft.

They basically boil down to: "Cannot kill the pilot/operator. Cannot kill the crew. Cannot kill the ground crew. Cannot kill the passengers. Most *DEFINITELY* cannot kill innocent bystanders."
