Hmm.... well, it mentions magma and extreme conditions in a bay12esque way.... but it seems to be an adbot in other ways....


EDIT: Not a spambot, has five posts.

If it's an adbot, then it's the first one that's posted something I have given a shit about.

I keep thinking glacier fortress would be fun, but it always ends up as cave layer fortress.

It made me laugh and I thought it deserved to be shared.

Will keep such things to myself in future, sorry!

Does my magma cannon count?

If the magma cannon doesn't count, they aren't proper scientists.

The pay scale on that is kinda depressing considering the requirements.

That would be a good job, if I had a PhD in physics or geophysics.

I wonder though, what the hell are they doing where you need a PhD level of specialization, but it's un-specialized enough that there's multiple degrees which could potentially satisfy it?

They're trying to figure out why magma spontaneously comes back when you drain it out of a pipe.  I doubt they'll find much - some mysteries will never be explained.

Perhaps they're working on their own magma cannon? Keep it hush-hush though, we don't want the terrorists stealing this potential weapon of war.

Seriously? If the conditions are sufficient to melt rock, they're pretty far into the "extreme" category already.
