Hey, can I plug in and re-charge while I fix the rear flat. There must be some way to get energy out of this thing.

Maybe if I open it, I can just get the dilithium crystals and use them later if they're not cracked.

Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, and is not a requirement in nuclear warheads!

For those that don't get it I think Usbport is referring to this post https://cr4.globalspec.com/thread/129650/This-is-Not-Normal from a day or two ago.

Dear love,

New missile developed in Africa. Introducing the Ostrich! Using its proprietary "stealth technology" in which it hides its war head in the sand!
