The Trident missile launch switch is fashioned to look like the handle of a Colt .45 revolver. Nuclear cowboy?

You losers are all gonna get buried in normal coffins or get cremated or buried at sea. HAH.
I’m going to have myself buried in a ww2 tank. So I can start fighting in the skeleton war already heavily armed and armored.
a glimpse of my sick future
I just stumbled across this old story I told somewhere, and thought I’d share more widely.
In Ultima Online, the player was a container — one you couldn’t open, but which held your equipped items, your backpack which was the container you could actually see, etc. Because of the freeform “gump”1 style containment system used in the Ultimas, you could position anything to any location in a container, which meant they were basically treated like maps, with coordinate systems in them.
Then we added mounts.
When you rode a horse, we simply put the horse inside the player, and spawned a pair of pants that looked like your horse, which you then equipped and wore.
When we first did this, however, we forgot to make the horse stop acting like a horse. Pretty soon there was a rash of server crashes because the horse inside the player was wandering around, picking up the stuff it found inside the player, rifling through the player’s backpack and eating things it thought were edible, and eventually, wandering “off the map” because the player’s internal coordinate system was pretty small, and the edges weren’t impassable.

Sharing this unused Static Shock cover again because not enough people have seen it. It was my favorite work-for-hire cover we did in 2011. Khary Randolph did a great job finishing up the covers before the series got cancelled. I especially love the series finale cover.
