Epic indeed.

You have to admit, a ball room that size, with the really high ceiling and some balconies, would be incredibly fun. Assuming that it was at least 25 feet deep.

Oh my god, I just realized what is wrong with the ball rooms at playgrounds. They're too small. If they were a hundred times bigger, they would be much more appealing.

Are you sure you're not overestimating your ability to not drown in playpen balls?

the balls cost about \$20 per cubic foot. a 20x20x10 pen of them would cost about \$80,000. not exactly cheap.

We can't use a Guy Fawkes mask, as that would get us confused with Anonymous. Unless that is what we want...

Which is a shame, since the trial would have been hilarious to watch.

Awesome as this arc was, for me each comic was just slightly less awesome than the one which preceded it. Until the last one. Which was epic.

we could have auto-broadcasting cameras and stuff, to document our not getting a trial, and alert the ACLU.

EDIT: although, that would plobably result in a charge of treason for the ACLU, not to mention us.

Paramount is actually releasing series as a movie to compete with the release of Quantum of Solace.

Well, that movie had every other kind of chase, except for a balloon one.
