Finding a seat on those rockets must be a nightmare- By the time you’ve got to an empty seat, the rocket will have reached the other side of the world. They probably have the same problem getting off. Or, they have enormous platforms.
Hey, I remember those articles in “Popular Science”!
Don’t blame all that stuff on Kirby…

“Don’t pester me with details, I’m too brilliant to question!”
