Wandering around in the tunnels this morning.

This is a pic of the wreck being shackled for removal, after the human remains were removed.

We broke 3 cables doing this.

Those tunnels look awesome. How far do they extend? Is the entire place linked?

How much investigation is going on as a result of the wreck? I'm guessing shockingly little.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

1.  They extend for miles, they are not all linked, and some have been sealed up.

2.  The investigation was as complete as possible.  They know who he was, and when he died.  Not much else to know, given the very few remains that the critters didn't carry off.

Those tunnels would make great scene background shots! The thought has been in my head for some time now that you're kinda Discordia's very own "Old Man of the Mountain".  :)

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Those tunnels look like the kind of place you'd expect to see an alien.  Mark my words, one day, you'll turn around and it'll be all:

That has the makings of an incredible practical joke.

I should be so lucky.  I'd settle for Nessies.  Anything.

Some yahoo yelled at me, saying 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH', and I thought, "I'm feeling generous today.  Why not BOTH?"

I was on my way to check the water levels in the 4 meter dome, when this young guy ran past me.  "RUN!" he yelled.  I felt that my spear gun, being single shot, was inadequate.  The water could wait for a later date.  I ran the tunnel - the young man was nowhere to be seen - and up the fire stairs.  I thought I heard something behind me, but those tunnels have tricky acoustics and you often hear things that just aren't there.
