Bus crush

Postby macrokat » Sat Sep 10, 2011 5:42 am

So talk of crushing cans on foreheads and buses and macros leads to the idea of a macro crushing a bus against their forehead why not?!

Anyway Kat prepares a challenge for her 'friend' Mar via a reinforced bus she's personally welded together.

I say 'friend' because Kat has a tendency to get into power struggles with well... everyone. Just because you're her friend doesn't mean she wont try to mess with you every once in a while to assert her dominance. Stay tuned for buff dragons sexual innuendo and of course a bus being crushed. :P

Not strong enough. If she REALLY wanted to make it structurally sound and stronger, she'd place more bars at angles inside, forming triangles. Triangles are stronger than squares.

Maybe she wasn't done with the bus in the scene and added the other joists during the cutaway.

Another method might have been to just fill the bus with reinforced concrete. And then replace the rubber tires and bus suspension with I-bars and metal fake "tires." >.>

:lol: yes who it is is a huge mystery. It must be El since she is known for being a destructive donut seeking macro. XD


I love how engineering came up. Yes while the truss support is far superior for a load bearing structure we must also remember that Kat is preparing the bus for a direct and massive compressive force. The best thing to counter a direct compressive force is something providing outward tension. Though if she combined this design WITH trusses... that'd be pretty tough...

Of course more importantly Kat is not an engineering major. Her profession is killing things so her strategy is put together the heaviest strongest things she can think of.

Mmhmm, that is right. X3 Only my mighty 5' 7'' form could possibly be big enough to fit the crime. There is simply no one bigger or more powerful out there. I don't even remember doing it, but it just would not make sense any other way.

Anyways, I just wanted to ask, what exactly is Kat's profession then? :3

XD that's just begging for a slap or worse DMX. :lol:

For the sexy part she would agree. But stripper... only on special occasions. ;) still slapworthy though.


To answer the original question though Kat's real profession is assassin. She was genetically engineered and raised to be one. Haven't made a comic or story about her real backstory for a while though so it is easy to just take her as a normal woman. But in actuality she is a trigger happy assassin with a quick whit and quite an attitude. She's good and she knows it. ;)
