Good time to find the far side of the blast wall
(TUNE: “Superstition”, Stevie Wonder)
Time for demolition! Knocking down the wall!
In this competition, we will win it all!
Rifles full of napalm, toys of Violet Bee’s!
Sergio will facepalm! Wishes he had keys!
When you’ve got a big crate
That you must detonate
You need know-how!
Demolition helps you now!
It’s a knotty problem! Solve it now with force!
Weapons, if you got ‘em … use ‘em all, of course!
Sergio, alas, has … knowledge that you need!
Took a vo-tech class, passed! (Ginny Lee saw “Speed”.)
Skin Horse tried being nice,
So now Violet’s advice
Is to strike hard!
Demolition’s her trump card!
“How hard can it be? I’ll just follow the written instructions!”
Just remember to respect the “This side towards enemy” label, bad things happen otherwise.
sergio no! dont get involved in this you fool!
“Vo-tech”? (I’ve found an article about vocational schools, but that’s it).
Forget explosives, Violet should just give her geniuses a paperclip or something and say “Bet you can’t open it with that.”
Wiki “Vocational-technical schools” (the dash is important).
In Chicago, Lane Tech HS is (or, at least, was) the type of school Sergio probably attended (they had a GREAT chemistry lab – not that I know about such things, of course …).
I ……. I don’t remember ……
o.O ….. good gracious,
I have not seen “Speed” .
I have seen it parodied quite a bit and did watch the Mythbusters Speed Bus Jump episode though – does that count?
on topic: Violet, the history of human victiories may not be applicable in this (your) case
Although I suspect the reason Violet ‘slept in’ is that she may have spent some time downloading knowledge of explosives ….
wait …. WHAT!?!
first panel, Violet’s dialogue.
That is *NOT* the Violet we have see so far.
Did a new personality get added/download overnight to deal with the situation?
Oh No! Everyone Stand Back. Violet is going all ‘Voyager EMH’. It’s all going to end in opera and snark
That “son” thing does seem like a different diction than Violet usually engages in
If you’ve seen the Mythbusters’ episodes on Speed, You’ve seen EVERY bit of interesting scenage in the movie. Really. I kid you not. and I Like Keanu Reeves movies usually. Yes it is my darkest shame.
If Unity couldn’t get in, I don’t see what a few pounds of explodium is going to do.
Oh, Sergio… don’t volunteer information.
If you google the phrase “incisive strikes,” most of the top references lead you to either classic soccer games or invasions of Afghanistan. Neither one bodes well for Sergio and Ginny.
The first classic mistake is “never start a land war in Asia.” The eighth classic mistake is “never set off a large explosion inside the vehicle you are stuck in.”
Especially train cars with an organic-compound synthesiser full of probably flammable materials (as well as potentially neurotoxin, if Phillip’s phenol wasn’t made on demand when he ordered it).
Blasting through from one compartment to another within a container of folded space. Not the brightest idea, I’m thinking.
Well, this is a train full of mad scientists. One of the first things that they probably had to do was reinforce all the cars and folded space generator against random explosions all along the length of the train. I’m guessing Violet’s won’t even be the largest they ever had to deal with.
Potato guns are important to learn.
