It’s been a long while, but I thought that a stormy day would be a good one for a new quiz. But you better hurry — Tillerman and Elisa just destroy these things when they arrive on the scene.

You can read more about the nuclear-powered jet engines in my earlier post about them here. Continue Reading →
