#6. The Equipment Isn’t Quite How You Picture It
Today we have tons of different trucks that were designed to be blown up. Trucks like the Husky, which is more or less a tractor for harvesting deadly, deadly bombs. It drives forward scanning the road for explosives, followed by huge trucks like the Buffalo that eat up fertilizer bombs like Pringles. Once an IED is spotted and marked by the Husky, the Buffalo pulls up and digs it out with a hydraulic rake. It just rakes up a bomb like it ain’t no thing. In the worst case scenario, the bomb goes off; the people in the trucks (that’s us) get shaken up a bit, and then we hop out and pick up the pieces that were blown off so they can be reassembled like a grittily rebooted erector set.
Favourite Companion (2/2) - Rose Tyler
“It was a better life. And I don’t mean all the travelling and seeing aliens and spaceships and things, that don’t matter. The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You know, he showed you too. That you don’t just give up, you don’t just let things happen, you…make a stand, you say no! You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away.” (The Parting of the Ways)
