Less than it's critical length, eh? Fascinating. Who's Jean? And would this be in a galactic disc, I'm assuming? So that's what's keeping us from just sailing out into the wide black yonder, that our Jean length isn't as embiggened as our critical length, where our is the galaxy in which we currently reside (that being the Milky Way, because SuperAwesomeUltraGalaxy Doubleplus Good was already taken..... stupid Andorlignarians...)

...what's such a big deal about that? I mean, I've got no interest in guys, but I'm not going to rule out that possibility simply because of my lack of interest in the ones I have met.
...I'm going to rule it out because I'm married and in to that whole fidelity and monogamy shit.
