    Yes, very easy to overlook because he pays well for them to do so.

      If you didn’t see Roddy down here, Mr. Chief Engineer, then why do I smell the stench of boot-money on you? Hmmmm?

    Fatalities? They’re stranded in the midst of pleasuredom, the thing to be in the lower 2000 underearth.
    Unfortunately, all disturbers will be pressed into endless, lightless mining…

    I can see light out there, I only wish I didn’t as it would indicate the magma is too close.

    • Number 6 says:

      That can’t be right. There’s no hot magma inside the Earth. That theory has been totally discredited. If there were, a person would have to be crazy to try to drill through that magma-filled Earth in a giant metal pressure cooker. Besides, if the Earth were full of magma, where would the Abyss Moths live?

    “Just because it’s not possible doesn’t mean I’m not seeing it.” Wise words which I intend to quote as often as necessary; hopefully it won’t ever be necessary for me to quote them for the same reason Charlie’s using them . . .

    Also, can we just have a moment of silence for all of those fatalities that aren’t worth mentioning? I feel sorry for them.

      If a gaggle of cartoon crewman fatalities are never drawn, can they be dead?

      • Yakumo says:

        Schrödinger’s cartoon crewmen.

        • wintermute says:

          They are neither alive nor dead. They are simply *undrawn*.

          Until you look. Then they are dead.

          • Number 6 says:

            Technically, according to Schrödinger, it’s not that the cat is neither alive nor dead, but rather that the cat, being in a state of quantum superposition, is BOTH alive and dead at the same time. Therefore, clearly, Schrödinger’s cartoon crewmen are obviously Zombies!

            This, incidentally is why the Chief Engineer feels they are not worth mentioning, as they are actually performing their duties no less efficiently in their new Zombie status.

            Schrödinger’s Zombies? Impressive reasoning.

  5. JP says:

    The toolbox’s premature demise would totally be the kind of fatality worth mentioning, wouldn’t it?

  6. Aslandus says:

    An awful lot of exposed machinery for “no fatalities worth mentioning”

    The captain did tell the chief to make sure everything, including the men was tied down. So, depending on what accommodations were provided, they could have had a pretty good chance of being just fine, even if the trip may not have been fun.

    What kind of fatalities aren’t worth mentioning, that’s what I want to know.
