Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse — Part V: The Longshoreman's Apocalypse


Narrator: In breathable air the terminal velocity of a falling human is a little less than sixty meters per second.
Narrator: In Credomar the rotation of air with the interior surface means that terminal velocity is the approximate speed at which a freely "falling" object will impact that surface. So convenient!
Narrator: Lieutenant Jeffy "Brad" Bradley has been augmented with soldier-boosts. An abrupt deceleration from sixty meters per second to zero might just be survivable.
Narrator: . . . Provided Brad lands on a hospital.
Brad: I'm done listening to you.
