Corpse Run 210: Came down upon their heads
So here is a totally spoiler free comic featuring a scene with Thor from the Avengers movie that just came out. Without giving anything away, here’s the gist: Thor has the ability to call his big ol’ hammer to him, something which he does numerous times during the film.
While I’m totally cool with his hammer magically flying to him in a moment’s notice, I’m not cool with how Thor employs this tactic without any care given to the locations he is in. In one particular instance, his hammer travels through multiple floors and walls, which could easily have killed dozens (if not more) innocent people who were just milling around doing their job when their lives were suddenly and violently cut short by Thor’s stupidity.
Food for thought.
So I was at the laundromat earlier, and while I never particularly enjoy running that errand, there was one man who… cured my boredom. As he was loading his washing machine, he appeared as though he was about to sneeze. Eyes darting frantically around the room at myself and the other patrons, he apparently concluded that he didn’t want to sneeze in our airspace, so he shoved his head in the machine and sneezed all over his clothes.
His head slowly raised from the machine, trace amounts of snot clinging to his nose when…
His head snapped back and then forward into the machine once more; sneeze two went off moments later.
It seems as though he didn’t want to pollute our breathing air with sneezes, his sacrifice apparently (to him anyway) akin to a soldier covering up a grenade to protect his squad-mates.
Carry on, sneeze guy, carry on.
