That's the genius of the system!  The engines run on barf, so it's self-fueling!

For $10k and half a day, would you rather be pampered with the sheiks, or spend about as much time to go on a violent roller coaster with a one in ten chance of blowing up?

Good point, but US->Asia travel times are more in the range of 12 hours in the air, and if you've got connections or layovers it can easily be 20 hours of flying.

If I had a spare $10K laying around I'd actually buy a car instead of going to China.


Since the rockets 🚀 aren't going to be launching or landing within sight of your destination city, you still have half a day of travel making connections.

Holy Shiat.  Phoenix to Portland by Gate!

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.
