1. Where did Pluto come into this?
2. Pluto is a dwarf planet, not a Dwarf planet.

Huh. Circular logic. I LIKE IT!

Carry on with your regularly scheduled groan.

I don't get it, but I'll laugh anyway.

By the way, what's the average usage of power for this site?

[/derail] I've got it!
Urist's Law of Relativity #1
The higher the Z-level, the larger the Z-level.
eg. At Z-level 0 (Yes 140 from where your wagon drops) 7/7 is slightly above a human's head. At Z-level 100, 7/7 water is about at the shoulders of a adolescent Bronze Colossus.

If you follow the formula put forth by Dwarves, a child is 1/4 of a normal creature. So an adolescent would be around 1/2, or 1/3 for a small one, of the size of a normal creature. A normal BC is 20,000,000 size. That puts an adolesant between 6,666,667 size and 10,000,000 size. A full grown human is 70,000. Plenty of padding in that law to make a  2000 Z-level tower go to Pluto and back.

I'm in the dark here. Who is groaning and why? What's the "Red Dwarf"? Who didn't know what a Dwarf planet is?

The Red Dwarf was a UNC Mining Ship in the BBC Sci-Fi Comedy by the same name.  It features Lister, the last remaining Human, A hologram named Rimmer, who's job was to annoy Lister. "The Cat" a human like creature evolved over millions of years from Lister's cat.(Lister was put into suspended animation for smuggling his cat aboard). Oh and a robot named Kryton. Imagine Star Trek voyager, as performed by Monty Python.

Good lord, revelation pt 2. The Red Dwarf was infested with CATS...

I wonder if Toady was a fan.  This is starting to freak me out.

Edit: Another revelation... One of the reoccuring antagonists were Gelf's.  And in one episode the crew from the RD trade with them!

That's what DF needs, The gutbuster brigade.  Screw that elf and his cat. Thibbledorf Pwent is the real hero.

New tagline.
"Slaves to Armok: God of Blood
Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress
Red Dwarf: The Game"
Colon cancer indeed.

DIET: I don't have to put up with crap, Scaraban.

A dwarf goes to sleep.  He sleeps through an entire tantrum spiral.  He wakes up, only to find an engraving on his wall:

"Engraved on the wall is a message: 'They're dead, Urist.'"
