It helps if you shave the beard.

Great, now you tell me

Reposted from YSDC: An Adventure Seed - The Object Under Seattle....
 

"Something unknown, engineers say – and all the more intriguing to many residents for being unknown – has blocked the progress of the biggest-diameter tunnel-boring machine in use on the planet, a high-tech, largely automated wonder called Bertha. At five stories high with a crew of 20, the cigar-shaped behemoth was grinding away underground on a three-kilometre-long, $US3.1 billion ($3.5 billion) highway tunnel under the city’s waterfront on December 6 when it encountered something in its path that managers still simply refer to as “the object”.


Lamentably, it has since been solved, and it turns out to be a very long pipe put there two years ago by the department of transportation.  Yes, the same DOT that is currently hitting the pipe with their massive tunnel boring machine.

But perhaps that's just the official explanation.

I'm pretty sure the object and pipe where just put there as an excuse to cover up the stoppage of Bertha while the city negotiates with the mole-men that they angered with their tunneling.

They dug too greedily and too deep.

Lockhart might be on to something - perhaps they found a Balrog :)

I'm going with crab people too (why not Zoidberg?) but @Thing should keep us informed of and unseasonal raises in temperature or sudden smog clouds and plagues of goblins that might herald a Balrog.

Crab people at least we know how to handle.  We are wise in the ways of both butter+garlic as well as tartar sauce.

Speaking of Seattle...

You know what makes me laugh about this poster?

Whoever made it has obviously NEVER been to Seattle. This view seems to be completely impossible, unless he lives on a really really really big helicopter constantly hovering over Elliot Bay.

I didn’t read the books. Does he work for S.H.I.E.L.D. by chance and have his own sexytimes helicarrier?

Anyway. If you are going to base a movie somewhere, please learn the basic geography of the area.

He's looking in a full wall mirror out the window on the opposite wall. #problemSolver

Then how come he doesn't have a reflection, huh? Is he a vampire or something?

...Wait, that would actually fit the source material. ;)

I only did the no shave November bit.  I would need to let it grow for a couple more months before I could challenge Mr. Moore to a beard off
