[ERROR] No.46578379 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

The rush-hour traffic is already ebbing by the time you step out of your apartment, freshly attired in some unobtrusive civvies - a navy-blue, short-sleeved polo shirt and dark jeans. The steel-shod end of your cane clicks against the concrete sidewalk with each step; the sound almost lost in the rising and falling thrumming of the cicadas lurking in the landscaping. After going absolutely gibbering nuts during last night's battle, nobody blinked an eye when you “called in sick” and took the rest of the workday off. Now, at 1830 hours, everyone's settling down to dinner or after-work pursuits, and the dormitory area of the base is relatively quiet. Elsewhere, though, you know work continues - at the JMSDF docks, and the commercial shipyards not far away in Tokyo harbor, and elsewhere in Japan, the second shift is just warming up. And for the intel analysts buried deep in their bulletproof cubicles and cramped little offices, stale coffee and dry donuts fuel the upteenth hour of strained, driven data crunching, sifting and sifting for the little golden speck that might finally turn the tide of war.

You stumble as your toe slips into a hole in the sidewalk you hadn't noticed, bringing your attention back to Earth. Shaking your head to clear the cobwebs, you sigh - maybe you *do* need a break.

>> No.46578397

At your side is Willie, one hand twisted into your pantleg for guidance, the other clutched defensively over her chest. She hasn't said a single word since you tossed your cane in-between the robo-dogs legs to save her, though she did stop bawling a few hours ago. Now it's just intermittent sniffles. You tried to get someone to stay with her for a while, but she spurned every candidate, opting to stay on your couch, wrapped up in a blanket under the AC vent.

You haven't thought about Willie for several days - just too much going on, too fast. As usual. Naka's words about crumbling mountains come back to you. Grinding your molars, you push them away. Willie's made tremendous progress, thanks in large part to Hate's shenanigans. Naka didn't get her instant fix either. Real life's not like the movies; things don't all sort out nice and neat after the big climax. It's a long, slow slog, and *that* is where real Duty lies. Someone once said that a hero is no braver than an ordinary man; he's simply braver for a few seconds longer. You've always thought that much the same could be said of duty - except it's measured in months and years.

You drop your big hand onto Willie's hat and roll it around a little, letting her know you're paying attention as she limps along with you towards Arizona's apartment. It describes the battleship perfectly - that quiet, composed dignity, always ready, always willing, and possessed of seemingly infinite endurance for any sort of toil or trial. It goes unremarked and unappreciated, and yet it's what truly underpins the safety of the millions that depend on military force for protection. For all the ads showing men stabbing CGI dragons with NCO swords, it's the guys that spend twelve hours a day fixing turbine gears and helicopter engines that really keep a Navy in fighting trim.

Or for that matter, little destroyers. Coastal patrol, anti-submarine warfare, convoy escort, et cetera - the smallest, cheapest and most overlooked units are often the ones you find yourself needing the most desperately. Those are the day-to-day operations you've had little time to concern yourself with; especially with the war kicking into high gear almost the instant you touched down in Japan. Willie's certainly gained confidence in her inherent fighting prowess, but you've no idea what her life is like amongst the other ships - she's the lone American of her class on this base; Sammy nonwithstanding. And Sammy isn't the best wingman in the world - she's more of a tank, with a cautious Willie crouching behind it as it snorts and roars its way through an urban area.

You wonder if the cliques and camaraderie that form amongst combat units in high-stress situations have already crystallized long ago with the Japanese DDs, leaving Willie a newcomer, an unwelcome interloper, an outsider. You wonder if it's just plain, old-fashioned grade-school bullying. You wonder if Willie's channeling her past experience, or if she was just scared shitless because she's a little girl that was chased down by a fucking killer robot. You think and think and think, trying to untangle the child from the combat ship right up till you knock on Arizona's apartment door.

>> No.46578445

Or try to. Before your knuckles make contact, the door springs open to reveal Arizona. Her usual small smile is smiled, but her blue eyes are dazzlingly bright. She's wearing a dark t-shirt and shorts - and her duster, tied around her waist like one might tie a sweatshirt. You haven't seen her wearing it since you landed two weeks ago; but given the heat of a southern Japanese summer, that's no big mystery.

She fixes you with that blazingly happy expression for a moment, then notices Willie. Willie might be a walking disaster zone, but it doesn't make her stupid - the way she turns her face downwards tells you she knows exactly what she's interrupting. Shame seems to radiate off the girl like waste heat.

IIRC, they planned to carrier-convert some Bf-109s and Ju-87s. When the FW-190 was introduced they switched to that for their fighters and dropped the 109s (as they should, the thing was hopelessly past it by 1943), but again, to my knowledge they never got beyond the drawing-board stage.

She yelps with surprise as Arizona just grabs her by the waist and lifts her airborne. Turning, she walks back past you into her apartment, holding Willie in front of her like she might bear a flowerpot towards the windowsill. You let yourself in, closing the door and locking it behind you. Arizona deposits Willie on the couch - a carbon copy of your own, naturally - and steps into the kitchen. She returns a few seconds later with a glass of milk and a few donuts on a plate. Setting the plate on the Ikea end-table, she sits next to Willie on the couch and coaxes the milk into her hand. The small girl sips at it slowly, her miserable eyes on the carpet straight ahead. She seems to have no appetite for the donuts.

Arizona quirks her mouth, looking concerned, and gives you a glance.

You lean forward, hands on knees, to intercept Willie's LOS. “Hey. Willie. You ever bake anything?”

“B-b-bread....” she confirms with a little nod. “S-s-store bread r-ran out after a f-few d-days, I mean-”

Arizona smiles again, standing and tugging at Willie's sleeve till she rises and follows. Leading you both into the kitchen, Arizona picks up a big plastic bowl and hands it down to Willie. The girl looks down and wipes at her eyes with the back of her hand - but she knows what to do with a bunch of dough. Standing on tiptoe to wash her hands in the sink, she sits indian-style with her back against the counter and starts to knead it industriously, mouth pursing as she focuses on her task.

Arizona nods, satisfied, then turns to you. Picking up a recipe book, she flips between a few pages, offering you a selection of choices.

“Cupcakes look good,” you offer. “Donuts require - do you even have-”

She points over your shoulder at a small deep fryer on the counter - from the shape of the plug, it seems to be a rather antiquated one. “I'm afraid I'm all thumbs in the kitchen; we might want to stay away from that.” You twitch your eyes towards Willie.

Arizona's smile slides to one side of her face - almost like a smirk. She opens up a cupboard and produces a box of pink sprinkles; then a pack of cupcake... liners? Wrappers? The paper. She makes a point of showing you the pattern on them - little hearts on a pink background. Flourishing her hand foppishly, she caresses her own cheek and bats her eyes at you.

“Oops, should've remembered my cookie pan with the missile-shapes on it,” you retort dryly.

Arizona blinks. Then she tilts her head, one eyebrow just barley twitching higher, as if to say... *missiles?*

“I've also got one with battle-axes,” you return smoothly. There. Go ahead and imply a phallic shape from THAT, sweetheart.

Arizona purses her lips thoughtfully. Then she takes your hand, pulling it in front of you and turning it palm-up. She plucks a pastry thing (you're sure the huge syringe-looking thing has a proper name, but you'll be damned if you can remember,) and, with a squint, she starts drawing a battle-axe on your palm in pink frosting. First one side of the axe-head... then the other... and then, extending from their middle, the long, rather thick-looking shaft.

She analyzes this for a moment, eyes focused in serious study - then she gives you another searching look.

You smirk at Arizona knowingly. “I see you've been paying attention to Hate. But you've got a lot to learn about playing gay chicken.” Lifting your hand to your mouth, you lick the suggestively-drawn axe off your palm with relish - no matter who you are, frosting is frosting is frosting. Arizona gives you that little lopsided smile that says she doesn't believe you.

You chuckle. “Yeah, ask Hamp about that.”

A raised eyebrow.

“Kissed 'im.”

Arizona draws herself up to her full height (still a few inches below yours) and crosses her arms, fixing you with a firm expression that says Repeat Signal.

“Kissed Hamp. Yep.”

“H-he did,” Willie volunteers quietly from the corner of the room. “E-e-everyone w-w-was talking a-a-bout it...”

Arizona squints at Willie, as if trying to read a lie in the little destroyer’s face, but she's studiously kneading away at her bread dough, expression set with concentration. Then she turns back to you, openly suspicious.

You grin. “You should've seen Kirishima's face. It was *sublime.*”

Arizona raises her hands, closes her eyes and shakes her head in surrender - you are indeed too gay for her to best. Handing you the recipe book, she motions at the counter, then around the room.

She nods, then crouches to pluck a muffin pan from beneath the sink. As you search around collecting what's needed, she retrieves two more and starts greasing the cups one-by-one with deft little dabs of a rubber spatula, tucking paper liners into them as she goes. Eyeballing the pans, you do some quick mental multiplication and fish out the measuring cups you'll need, and a large bowl. The default accouterments of the apartment is just as sparse as yours - aside from a microwave and that awful goddamned percolator, there's almost nothing you need in a well-appointed kitchen, not even a blender - or, for that matter, an electric mixer. Arizona is unfazed; she simply takes the measured (and carefully leveled) measuring cups with butter, sugar and brown sugar from you, dumps them into a metal bowl and tucks it under her arm. Taking up a spatula with the other, she begins to mix steadily, whipping it around in small, fast, and very precise circles.

It's a hell of a lot easier to hit with than a torpedo. And a hell of a lot more accurate than level bombing/glide bombing with medium (or heavy) bombers.

You watch her curiously. “You get tired?”

She shakes her head, and rolls her shoulders a little as if shrugging. She nods towards the egg carton meaningfully.

“Sure.” You pluck out four eggs, two in each hand and squeeze them gently till you feel the shells crack. Flexing your hands just so, you let the yolks run into a measuring cup and toss the shells into the sink. Rising your left off as you pluck the last two eggs out and crack them with your right. you feel a sudden sense of foreboding - like a man who's just heard the forest go silent around him. Glancing over your shoulder, you find Arizona staring at you like you've just grown horns, her spatula stilled.

“... what?”

She nods towards you.

You look down at yourself.

“What!?”

She pokes at your right hand, where the last two eggs are still draining.

“What, this? My father owned a restaurant.” You toss the empty shells into the sink and finish washing up. Arizona points at a drawer to one side, but you go right for the one where you found the scant silverware allotment in your own apartment. “Fork works better than a whisk, I've found, if you know how. Too much egg gets caught on the whisk.”

Arizona nods - her old “affirmative” gesture - and goes back to stirring silently as you beat the eggs into a nice uniform slurry. You can feel her eyes on your back. For some reason the silence is grating on you, as if...

I guess the airframes strong enough to handle even a recoil-less version (and the weight-loading capacity) weren't around until the mid-30s, or something? And since it couldn't be based from a carrier, it was overlooked by the USN? I imagine the IJN airframes weren't capable of handling it, plus the large amount of steel required for the barrels.

With the measuring cup in hand, you turn towards the corner all casual-like, overtly checking on Willie's progress, but covertly watching Arizona from the corner of your eye. You catch her gaze flitting away from you as you turn, and feel rotten almost instantly.

It's strange how Arizona's muteness never seems noticeable to you - every time you need to communicate, you seem to do so naturally and without hesitation. It almost never takes you two tries to guess her meaning. For the first time you wonder how much of that is due to her own restraint - it'd be just like a quiet, dutiful servant of the nation to stifle the questions not easily reduced to pantomime or yes/no queries. You remember the realization that overtook you yesterday, just after you'd fired off that question to Mare Island's PR department - how Arizona had become a comfortable presence in the background; always there, always with you, a constant.

Just like your own warship had been.

But Arizona's not a warship, not solely - she's also a human, now. A woman. And people, they want to talk, and be talked to. You wonder if she's some sort of Dark Naka; bearing her burdens in silence as Naka bore hers beneath a loud, spun-sugar shell-

- Arizona looks up and you flick your gaze away from *her,* feeling foolish - when did you just start staring? She's still watching you watch her in your peripheral vision with *her* peripheral-

“Yeah, I started cracking eggs at home for practice, because my father had me washing dishes, and that's the worst damn job anyone can ask for,” you tell her. She blanches and nods in agreement. “So I spent my own allowance - well, pay, I guess - and practiced till I could crack eggs good and fast. Negotiated my way onto the morning shift, just making eggs for all the breakfast orders. Getting up early wasn't fun, but god did it beat dishwashing.” You raise the glass measuring cup to eye level. Arizona nods at you through it, and you bring it to her, pouring the whipped egg into the mixing bowl slowly as she continues to stir, letting it mix thoroughly. “When I found out that they had people hand-washing dishes in the Navy I decided that Annapolis couldn't possibly be worse than that.”

Arizona tilts her head, looking curious.

You chuckle. “Yeah, I was wrong. I mean, Annapolis doesn't have windows on the second story that don't open, like the ChairFarce academy, and we don't have cadets packing helmets into their pillowcases like West Point's last annual pillowfight-” you catch her expression - “yeah, that happened. It's nothing like your day, sure, but don't think it's just up and vanished entirely, either.” Arizona nods thoughtfully as she continues mixing steadily, her small hand never seeming to tire. “Hell, we even have women at sea n-”

Arizona's spatula clanks against the bowl's side suddenly. You turn in surprise; so steady and regular has her motions been till now that the sudden sound seems like a purring engine suddenly coughing. A bit of batter has splattered all over; some on Arizona's shirt, and some on her folded duster - which she seems to be using as an apron, now that you think of it.

“You okay?”

She blinks, then nods hastily.

“Guess the whole women aboard thing-”

She stares straight ahead, a little too composed, before nodding almost mechanically. You hand her some paper towel to clean up with.

“I can finish that, if you want.”

She nods, handing you the bowl and spatula. Your efforts are far less efficient and co-ordinates, but there's not much beating left to do. Arizona wets the paper towel at the sink, wipes off her plain dark t-shirt, then pops the oven open. As she leans over to adjust the rack spacing inside, you take the opportunity to study her stern. She's wearing plain khaki shorts, nothing fancy - but her small rear fills them out surprisingly nicely anyways. You think back to the glimpse of her underwear you caught a few days ago -

- well, that was more than a glimpse, wasn't it? That was an all-out stare. You turn away swallowing quickly, because the last thing you need is Arizona straightening up to catch you blushing like a schoolboy at the memory. It wasn't your most chivalrous moment, was it? Looking out over the sink, you study Arizona's small apartment for something to do... except there's not much to study. Yours is no mansion; it's still filled with boxes and boxes of stuff you've never had time to unpack, but this room is literally empty. There's not so much as a dog-eared Reader's Digest discarded on an end-table, or a forgotten glass of dusty water on a coaster. For that matter...

... you use your toe to hook the underside of the under-counter trash-can slider, and pull it out a quarter-inch. Sure enough the bag is filled with cellophane packaging. The muffin pans cost 15.95 each at the PX, it seems -

- a smaller foot hoves into view, pushing the trash can shut with its toe. You follow it up to find Arizona beckoning you towards the counter opposite, where the pans are waiting. She has you pour half the batter into another bowl, and then you both start carefully filling the waiting cups, half pouring, half scraping.

Glancing aside, you see Willie's finished one loaf - she rolled it into two long pieces and neatly braided them together to make a pretty pattern. She's carefully making more dough from scratch, using a thick cutting board in her lap as a surface to work upon.

If you can't find your way with just a good compass and the navigation radios, you shouldn't be in a light plane anyhow. I saw some documentary about a 16 year old girl soloing on a three-leg flight up in Alaska, and she ended up crashing high in the mountains when she ran out of fuel because she flew the wrong fucking way, after transposing a digit in her GPS unit.

To re-iterate:

1. She's soloing,
2. In a light aircraft, and
3. She flew SOUTH instead of NORTH for like TWO FUCKING HOURS without noticing this.

If she never once looked at her FUCKING compass, (EITHER of them,) then she can't even be said to be doing a basic instrument scan, which means she should not be flying.

Someone got on my case for this once and said that, hey, she's only 16. My opinion is, that means that 16 year old shouldn't have been soloing. Am I wrong in this?

OK, so the time for a bomb to fall 15,000 feet is about 30 seconds (neglecting air resistance), and for the sake of argument, let's say he can do an instantaneous 180 after bomb release to flee. So that's 90 knots times sixty seconds horizontal distance (30 for the bomb and 30 for the plane going the opposite way), or about 1.5 miles standoff, and a slant range of 17,552 feet.

Based on the structural strength of a Cessna 172, its maximum gross weight, and the wing area, an overpressure load of about 0.9 psi should be enough to break the wings off the airplane.

Using publicly-available software the DOD developed in the 80s to calculate the blast effects of nuclear weapons shows that the blast wave overpressure at that altitude and slant range would be about 4.6 psi.

So no, that Cessna isn't flying, it's had its wings ripped off by the blast and is *falling* out of the sky.

Using GPS in Alaska was her first mistake; most of the state is so far north the GPS sats aren't able to even give even a basic reading. There are no GPS sats in polar geo-sync, so the Arctic and Antarctic regions have almost no GPS reception as is.

A lifetime in the Navy has not well-equipped you for peaceful social encounters, so you follow what you know, and one of the prime maxims is - when you find yourself in a hole, *stop digging.* You keep your mouth shut and let Arizona steer the evening - she's not stupid, and she's probably got a plan.

And maybe she really does like baking.

With the cups all filled, the time has come to bake. The oven's already making that discreet little “boomp” sound as the auto-igniter kicks in to maintain temperature. The door opens to flood the room with warm, dry heat. You hand the muffin pans to Arizona one at a time as she stoops to slide them in carefully. As she crouches, her duster falls away from her legs. A flash of flourescent light on blued steel draws your eye to her revolver, pushed far forward of its usual spot just behind her hip, to conceal it behind the duster. It's also riding high in a belt holster, not the usual drop-leg rig that straps to her thigh when she's in regular uniform.

The sight sobers you for a moment; and for the first time you really *look* at Arizona. Absent the clean, crisp lines of the uniform that usually frame her blank, serious expression... she just looks like a girl. And not a big one, even - unlike Yamato's amazon-like build, or Kongou's rather boxuom one, Arizona is downright petite. Taller than most, but “most” are mostly Japanese - Naka doesn't even stand five feet, she's practically a dwarf. She looks like a young coed in her dorm - which makes the heavy revolver on her hip all the more incongruous.

Incongruous. On a girl who can be wielding twelve fourteen-inch guns within a few seconds, each one hurling a shell that weighs more than half of Willie's full displacement - fourteen hundred tons a shot. You pinch the bridge of your nose. It's just you, getting all starry-eyed because she looks delicate and -

- except it *is* incongruous on a girl who's literally bulletproof. The revolver isn't a manifestation or anything; it's just a gun she purchased on her own, after some pantomime was exchanged and a government ID and credit card were flashed at a confused young funstore clerk in Hawaii. It's utterly superfluous - but you have never, ever, once seen her without it; even when she apparently wished you would.

It comes down on you all at once - the small, delicate girl in front of you, and the heavy burden she is most certainly carrying. You almost chuckle at your theoretical wandering of a half-hour prior - the girl does not *speak,* and there you were, pondering the possibility of her Hidden Issues. For all the armor, all the firepower, at the end of the day, she's still alone with herself when she pulls the covers over her head - just like you are.

No wonder, you think. No wonder Naka focuses outward, on helping everyone but herself...

... hell, isn't that what you do?

>> No.46582789

You don't like this, this standing about in a kitchen in your civvies like a geek. You feel like a crab sans shell, exposed and clumsy as you scuttle sideways over the beach. Arizona slams the oven door shut and straightens up, unconsciously tucking a strand of red hair behind her ear again - and some wild impulse makes you want to reach out and pluck it out of place again.

You turn towards the counter and start mopping it clean with a spare tablecloth, even though your careful efforts have left it perfectly clean anyway. A familiar feeling is creeping over you; one you haven't felt since your cadet days - the awful, brooding suspicion that despite doing everything right and by-the-numbers, you're glowing like the dumb halfwit asshole you are, not even knowing what you missed. Any minute now the bark of an upperclassmen will -

- when the sound comes you actually twitch, you were so primed for it. But it's just a yelp of surprise from Willie. She's sitting on her butt, looking completely stunned; the better part of a package of flour completely covering her. Her lower lip begins to tremble as she feels everyone's eyes on her - despite her best efforts, she's become a problem again.

Arizona stares at the little destroyer girl, eyes squinched shut, completely covered in white powder, a little pyramid of it piled atop her bare head...

... and then she begins to giggle.

It's silent - for the most part. She's doing her damnedest to stifle it, but they come anyway, a quiet, muffled sound that slips out from between her slender fingers as she clamps them tighter over her mouth. When Willie blinks, the flour sticking to her eyelids makes her eyes vanish completely, like some sort of cartoon of a polar bear hiding in a blizzard. This just sets Arizona off worse. She leans against the counter with one hip, her sides visibly shaking as the laughter creeps deeper into her diaphragm. Watching her laugh makes *you* start to laugh. Willie turns an utterly perplexed look upon you, and that knocks you down as well, your Sensible Chuckle rising into mad girly giggles as you wipe your eyes dry of mirth. Arizona tries to curl around it, still trying to smother any audible sounds as you pick Willie up and help dust her off, ruffling her hair affectionately and laughing at the cloud of flour dust that floats into the air.

You can't say why, exactly - but somehow you just feel better, and the heavy thoughts more distant than they were heartbeats ago. Willie plays with the end of her braid nervously as you dust off her shoulders and back, expecting some sort of commentary, but you just nod at her two finished loaves on the countertop.

“I like how you braided those. Looks neat.”

“... you like it?” she asks shyly.

“Yeah. Learn that from braiding your hair?”

She looks down at her thick, tightly-woven braid. “Yuh.”

Arizona's wetting a washcloth to finish cleaning off the hapless destroyer when your cell phone rings. You shrug apologetically as you reach to silence it, but when you glance at the screen, your heartbeat beings to race.

Mare Island.

Tenryuu. Tatsuta.

A solution.

“I've got to take this!” you exclaim, pressing it to your ear and stalking into the living area to avoid being too obnoxious.

“Excellent, excellent - can you handle my two ships?”

“Admiral-”

“Time is of the essence,” you say quickly, excitement flooding through your veins. You've done it. You've saved them! “Arizona, bring me a notepad, please!” You begin fishing through your pockets for a pen.

“Admiral!” Baker objects. “I called to tell you something very important-”

“Nothing more important than this.”

“It's about Higgins.”

You take a quick breath, steeling yourself - and then you shoulder those old emotions aside. They'll be back, later tonight, when you lie alone in bed, as always - but for now, the fate of two loyal shipgirls lies on your hands. “Higgins had her day, sir, but these girls-”

“No!” Baker says. “That's just the thing. She hasn't.”

You chuff disbelievingly. “I was on her when she was opened up like a tin can, sir. She's had it.”

A cold, knowing chill floods through your body, damping your emotions and focusing your thoughts - something is Happening. “I'm listening, Mister Baker.”

“You e-mailed to ask about Higgins museum berth. Where she'll be sent, after we're done stripping her for spares for the rest of the fleet and patching the holes to make her pretty.”

“Yes.”

A miserable sigh. “We're not doing that.”

Your heart sinks. “... the breakers?”

“No.”

“Saving a chunk of superstructure?”
“Admiral Settle,” Baker says. “Mare Island Drydock accepted a *refit* contract.”

“... what.”

“Latest standard. COTS systems, SEARam mounts and integration, structural reinforcements, powerplant overhaul, the works. And we're almost done.”

Which IRL we're not doing for these (at least for now.) The majority of this seems to boil down to ripping out the 90s era mainframes and replacing them with Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS,) basically installing server racks so they can utilize the modern, rapidly changing tech with linux-based code, instead of specialized mainframes that required their own custom code as in the past (when that was the best, nay the only way to really get the computing horsepower needed, and such.)

They'd be hard-pressed to crew her otherwise. I rather imagine that, even after attrition from wounds, and experienced crew being plucked to replace combat losses on other ships, the Navy's kept most of the Higgins crew intact for a reason. Crews sometimes perform "hull swaps," where two crews trade ships - the important thing is to keep a crew together, more than anything else. They'd make an effort to do that. Might not be Settle's "old crew" at all, but they'll already know how to work together.

Fun fact: bridges were never armored. The conning tower was. But not the bridge. You can't really armor something that has big-ass fucking windows covering a 180 degree arc.

A lot of Captains would just agree to stay on the bridge, because chances of taking a direct hit there were pretty damn low, and the visibility was important. The ship's main fire control systems and such would be in the conning tower, as well as a backup steering/nav position, backup radio set (if aerials still existed for it) and other shit, behind the thickest armor on the whole ship - even thicker than the turret faces. Even if the bridge crew ate it, the ship could keep fighting from there.

Sometimes people ask "why do we still put see-through canopies or windows on planes, especially commercial jets? Can't we get rid of them and make planes stronger?" And the pilots, they stand up, clear their throats, and then they say "SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE GET THE FUCK OUT!"

I do that as well, but that's mostly because of my old as fuck PoS (doesn't even deserve to be called a battlestation) has Firefox slow to a crawl when I have too many tabs open. Ever go on an 8 hour Wiki walk where you click through close to 3000 articles and wind up with a window with like 500 tabs open? That happens to me quite often, last time was just two days ago, and I have yet to learn my lesson...

My computer may be old as fuck, but it still works, and that's all that matters to me. Also poor college student, so I can't afford to replace it.

I actually got rid of adblock in favor of uBlock, it SEEMS to be smaller and faster.
That aside, perhaps you should try noscript. Blocking javascript from all those bullshit ad & tracker sites makes a significant difference. Having to whitelist everything can be a pain though.

My personal record was 4,000+ tabs. Got a screenshot somewhere.

That was back on Firefox 2.0. When it was stable and nigh nothing could kill it. Memory leaks would force the odd restart to keep things from being too sluggish, but that was pretty much it.

Seriously tempted to just disable javascript too and see how well I can get by, because Firefox code just can't handle it at all, it seems.

Man this levelling effect is tricky as fuck. We could easily just beef up the bridge on the Higgins by tripling the window thickness and spall liner protection at the cost of some weight. But we don't know what effect this would have and there is no way to scientifically test this short of a captive abyssal. It could do jack squat because muh levelling, or it could perform better like you expect it would because it's considered "top of the line" and performs as such.

>>46583730
Have you ever considered using NoScript? It shuts down all scripting that isn't directly related to the primary site and stops it from eating up resources. Most of that third party javascript stuff is just ad related garbage anyway.

Flash always seems to fuck up Firefox on my PoS, but then again, I'm only running 2 GB of RAM on it. Like. 5 seconds of pinwheeling as the window freezes as it loads the plugin container and Flash itself.

I'd get more RAM, but again, poor college student. My last big windfall was the $1000 I won on Jeopardy a year and a half ago and I blew that on paying back the flight and hotel, and then New York Comic Con and the Miku concert that October...

If anything, keep Higgins a safe distance from the battles, with Shipgirls and Guys covering her. She can fire missiles further away, perhaps with spotting by the Shipgirls.
