STORY OF RED TUBES AND HARD DECISION

8 comments

ME, GRIMLOCK, FINALLY GET RED SHIPPING TUBES TODAY. FIND OUT THEM DELIVERED TO WRONG PLACE, DESPITE ME WRITE RIGHT PLACE ON ORDER FORM. NOW THEM HERE, POST OFFICE SHORT 1 EMPLOYEE.

BUT ME DISCOVER TERRIBLE FACT:

80 POUND GLOSS PAPER VERY THICK, HARD TO ROLL TEN SHEETS UP TIGHT INTO TUBE. IT REQUIRE DINO STRENGTH TO DO.

UNFORTUNATELY, IT EVEN MORE HARD TO GET OUT OF TUBE. SO HARD, NOT EVEN DINO STRENGTH CAN DO.

(SCIENCE: THIS BECAUSE COILED PAPER ACT AS SPRING, TENSION CREATE PRESSURE ON SIDES OF TUBE, PRESSURE CREATE SHEARING FORCE GREATER THAN TENSILE STRENGTH OF POSTERS. FORCE GREAT ENOUGH TO REMOVE POSTERS RESULT IN TOTALLY AWESOME CONFETTI, BUT IT PROBABLY NOT RESULT YOU LOOKING FOR)

ONLY WAY GET POSTERS OUT OF TUBE IS DESTROY TUBE. THAT BUMMER. IT RUIN SURPRISE OF FINAL BONUS.

FINAL BONUS IS SWORD HILT. YOU CUT OUT, FOLD, PUT ON RED TUBE, MAKE IT AWESOME RED FIRE SWORD. BUT NOT WORK IF DESTROY TUBE TO GET OUT. DESTROYED RED FIRE SWORD LOTS LESS FUN. IT -15 TO HIT, ONLY DO 1D2 DAMAGE, HARDLY KILL ANY ACCOUNTANTS.

SO ME DECIDE NO SHIP SWORD HANDLES. THEM NOT FIT IN TUBE, NOT USEFUL, JUST BIG FAIL. NOT SURE WHAT GOING TO DO WITH THEM. MAYBE HAND OUT TO ORPHANS OR SOMETHING. 

ANYONE HAVE SPARE ORPHANS? ME PROMISE NOT EAT MOST OF THEM.

      Maybe wrap surprise around outside of tube like awesome mail label. Was going to send orphans instead of suggestion but realise I still need them. So sorry.

      HOW TO OPEN: MAKE LITTLE CUT IN TUBE, TEAR IN SPIRAL. ME SEND IN UPDATE TOO.

      PUT IN 2 OR 3 AT TIME MAKE WORSE, NOT PACK AS TIGHT, ALL 10 NOT FIT.

      PAPER BAND NOT WORK. HAVE TO KEEP ROLLED TIGHT AS CAN WITH BOTH CLAWS, GET IN TUBE BEFORE SLIP. MAYBE IF HAD VERY STRONG TAPE AND ASSISTANT.

      WILL CONSIDER WHAT DO WITH. IT TOO BAD NO ONE HAVE SPARE ORPHANS. THEM SOUND LIKE VERY USEFUL FOR CLEAN CAVE, SCRATCH HARD TO REACH PLACE IN MIDDLE OF BACK, DEVOUR WHEN HUNGRY.

      If nothing else works, you could save these for the next MOST AWESOME kickstarter project -- call it a teaser, though it might throw your budget out of whack to get alternate shipping boxes.

      put a paper band w/ tape around the rolled up posters. that will hold them inside the tube without creating destructive tension pressure.

      Can you put the posters in the tube 2 or 3 at a time?

      Puny humans will require instructions on how to destroy tube without destroying posters, avoid even bigger fail.
