6 thoughts on “Trope-a-Day: Death Is Cheap

    • Except in EVE, there’s no-one out there making your death more expensive for other people…

      (Also, Imperial insurance companies are smart enough not to make repeated self-destruction a profitable pastime… šŸ™‚ )


      • Though I’d imagine that, the prevailing technologies and attitudes being what they are, someone has found a way to make “repeated self-destruction” profitable (for given values of “profitable,” from certain perspectives) through other channels.

        In particular, I’m imagining that there exists something that would appear to us as the product of a foursome between Mythbusters, Jackass, ancient Roman blood sports, and Japanese game shows; and that, while it might not be the Imperials’ cuppa tea, it has to have some popularity in the wider Associated Worlds.
