Don't worry about Spacewalks so much Ashley, Sandra Bullock just got dizzy because she's so used to having the world revolve around her.

Yeah I don't think we need another outbreak of the Black Death.

As long as no one looses a half million dollar bag of tools, its a successful spacewalk.

I'm on to you Ashley. Your cold robotic eyes and HK-47 snark likely mean you are working on plague spreading robots.

For real though I'm loving the show.

Hey! New transitions! I think these work well. :)

On turtles: slow and steady does not win the arms race.

Add a little ooze and you have the coolest spies ever.

...perhaps not the most effective though.

I reeeally tried to work in a TMNT joke, and I just couldn't find the right one!

Excellent, meatbag~

Turtlespionage!

Wouldn't someone in North Korea notice the turtle? It's not exactly the most inconspicuous thing ever.

Waitwaitwait.....
No mention that the plague of justinian preumalby birthed our favourite plaguefather, Nurgle? I'm severly disappointed.

Also: Surveillance turtle is best turtle.

It sucks that the Escapist was down for 7 or so hours when the show was released Saturday. Still, I'm glad to get my Geekend Update fix even if it's a day late.

"Suck it Rabbit!"

Real turtles wouldn't need laser eyes, Ashley. Real turtles come after you with lightsabers!

Haha, oh my god. That is amazing. How have I never seen that until today?

Must be so annoying to the turtle "Wha- where did this obstacle come from? Oh well, I'll just go around it" x ∞
