Man-made, Yith-made, same difference.

Did anyone else read that as "marmalade"?

Oh what times these are when we forget about Dr. Quatermass and the horror at Hob's End.

WTF? They already had to stop once for the same thing. They need a stronger bit.

Texas Gabe: Another one?

Another tunnel? Is that safe?

The modmins delved too deep and too greedily, you know what they awoke in the depths of Seattle.

Well at least it hasn't moved since yesterday. THAT would be interesting.

The story so nice it gets greenlighted twice.

Just drill through it. What's the worst that could happen?

So, these two boring machines run into each other... never mind, it's not very interesting.

Yog-Sapha is NOT amused by the drilling?

The entire tunnel collapses? The boring machine locks up? Basically they stop not because 'it can't be bored' but because 'this is significantly different than what was expected'.

The engineers need to examine it and verify the bore plan and such are still accurate, and that they won't create some special flaw that collapses a tunnel in downtown Seattle or something equally catastrophic.

It's probably the bedrock the whole city is anchored to, to keep it from sliding into the bay.

/let's smash that sucker
