Just dump the ideas to the bad idea thread. That's what I do. :D

I don't ask, because there already is.

When you're convinced you have your own BIT and it just happens to be opposite your assigned gender.

When you start instinctively classifying supers from other universes with the Whateley system.

Oh god I do this all the time. Which is especially problematic when I developed my own ranking system that I use in most of my notes on things like superheroes for campaigns I run. Especially since the two systems don't translate well.

My dreams take me to far off lands and times of distant past and future. They tell what has been done, what will happen and who I am. They show me things beyond the machinations of any man. Tell me, what are dreams to you?

You know you've read too much whateley when you build a 1:120 scale model of tiny tim with motors, sensors and a tiny pneumatic air gun. No seriously, I did it for the shits at giggles. I assume it's four legged with a BFG on top??? Mine's about the size of a manhole cover. Guess I'm putting my mechatronics degree to good use!!!

I think it's described as bipedal in "May Your Death Be Sweet":

Bardue watched. It was impossible. It was a fucking miracle, is what it was. But Tiny Tim lifted its foot.

And it fell over.

The goddamn giant robot couldn’t walk. Everyone on campus knew that. It had armaments in its arms and head, but they wouldn’t engage until you opened the roof and operated the lift platform. As those Syndicate bastards found out at Halloween.

But it could fall over. And whoever was helping him out knew that too. It lifted its right foot just the correct way so it would fall forward and to the right.

*nod* its bipedal specifically because that's what makes it 'impossible'.... the engineering challenge of overcoming the height -> volume structural and coordination problems. :)

Actually...in engineering terms that isn't really a problem. Sure, we haven't done it. But it is possible to build giant robots. It's just that the cost of doing so would be astronomical, and the onlyreal use is military. Pacific Rim-style Jaegers are not really a practical method of waging war, unless you want to fight monsters with monsters of your own.

If you liked Pacific Rim, listed to Miracle of Sound's song 'The Crush' on YouTube. It's F**king Awsome

Plus coordination is pretty simple. Structrual??? Hard, but not entirely impossible. A team of adult engineers could do it in a couple of years on paper. Maybe four to built, and billions of dollars to buy parts for. As for the Height to volume...seriously??? Engineers SOLVE problems, not CREATE them. That was one of the first things I heard in a lecture. Sure, you can set yourself a challenge. But the objective is to solve it in a cost-effective, logical and efficient manner, not to overly complicate a already difficult task. Tiny TIm's concept is pretty stupid, as even if it was impossible in real life, it wouldn't be. Really, it wouldn't. Humans build skyscrapers with little issue, so why should a massive walking robot be any different??? I bet you cavemen wouldn't recognise even a utility hut, so why would a problem difficult for us in 2018 be difficult to a 2006 with holograms, advanced robots, AI's, energy weapons, smartphones (before the iPhone), advanced genetech, cybernetics, psi grenades...
