Jeeze, and I joined this forum under the impression that everyone else would be like, twelve or something.
I think this thread has the highest average user age.

EDIT: and An-chan, no more porn links.

If the plane is in the air, then its physically impossible, the cabin is pressured, and the wind speed would be way too high. Ever try standing in 400+ mph wind?

If the plane is on the ground, have a Pokemon use an attack to punch a hole in the roof.

    I sure hope the plane's moving pretty slowly, otherwise no human or Pokemon would be able to stay on top of it without getting blown right off. However, if you don't mind tossing out a little realism for the sake of an entertaining story, that shouldn't be a problem.

    My suggestion would be either using a blowtorch to open a hole in the roof, or having a psychic-type use a really accurate Teleport.

      There aren't any plot holes, just gaping holes in physics. Is this plane in the air, or is it on the ground, not moving. If the latter is the case, then this is fine. If the former is the case, it would be impossible to do anything, considering the speed at which the plane would be moving.

      On another matter, An-chan has definitely shown me the creepiest thing I have ever seen. I want to gouge my eyes out, then remove the section of my brain that controls sight. I got a headache from watching that. An-chan, please, warn us before you link something like that again.

      This was my mind when I first saw that.

        I'm not doing the math either. As soon as there was a close-up of the naked human foot in the video, I was out of there. >< And then proceeded to block the video from my memory by eating hot dogs. 8D

          Umm, An-chan? WTF? I go to work and come back to nearly naked Asian men dancing and singing about getting nine hours of sleep and other random stuff? I mean, I laughed, but wtf?

          Sounds like something you would see in Yu-gi-oh! Actually, as long as you develop it correctly and create a somewhat likely series of events leading to the battle, say a malfunction followed by banging on the cieling, then it should work out well enough.

          EDIT: Wow, I have never seen so many replies to one question in the process of one post. But the rest of them are right, you have to take in the scientific aspect when you think about this. If you don't care about the realism, then just do it. However, if you want to keep it semi-realistic, then you should just toss the idea and do it inside the plane or something.

          Also, I think it should have been in just the writer's lounge instead of the fanfiction lounge. I might be wrong, Astinus can tell me off if I am (which would be pretty hot, if done the right way XD)

          EDIT 2: There won't be any Ekans or Arbok, right? We all know how Snakes on a Plane turned out...

            If anything you wrote could be published, what would it be?
            Definitively my Final Fantasy VI based story, "Scalar" (also my first published story). It's still in progress but I've already envisioned the climax, the aftermath, the epilogue and the applause, things like that. I'm very proud of that work, as it was born straight from my heart and I've pushed a lot of things around to make it so that I could write it. If I were to use my real identity instead of my penname, "Scalar "is one of the works (if not the) I would like to be initially known, or even renowned, for.

            But, if I have to be realistic, the first and probably only thing I'm going to get to the press, is a training document I'm writing for a set of computer virtualization systems I'm working on

            Of course a compilation of my sayings in either "calendars" or "demotivational posters" would also be great. But that would go better with my real identity.

              An-chan, I don't think I would have sat through a five minute video of Asian men in underwear dancing and singing a ridiculously catchy song with some satiric overtones for anyone else... but since you were nice enough to compliment my OT guide, in a very over-the-top manner, I think I can give you a little leeway.

              Now would you go ahead and explain the satire to everyone so that I can stop gouging my eyes out for watching that thing IN ITS ENTIRETY?

              It is going to be so hard to convince anyone here that I'm straight from now on, isn't it?

                I only made it about halfway through. I actually thought it was funny though. Does this mean I'm bi? (Joking, I know I'm completely straight. I wasn't lying about watching it halfway through though.)

                In Soviet Russia, naked Asian men watch YOU! Seriously though, I have keys, a pencil, a few pens, some scissors, a flashlight, a drawing tablet, a cellphone, and a printer near me that I was seriously considering scraping my eyes out with. Never. Again.

                    If anything you wrote could be published, what would it be?

                    Well, if I could get any of my ideas floating around concerning my sole fictional fantasy-sci-fi planet, Exodus, down, I'd have a publishable work. Sadly... those attempts have all gone down the toilet; ah well-- at least I'm developing the world very nicely.

                          So, that means I'm left with giving you seventy-five percent of the profits. Anyone know the conversion rate of USD to Astini? My desktop currency converter doesn't show it XD
                          You had me going, I got out my phone and its currency converter, and then I was looking for "Astini" when it hit me that my converter wouldn't have it either. DX

                          But I laughed, and then I posted it so that others may laugh at me as well. I really am stupid arnt I?

                          It's okay, were all lost, with or without Astinus.

                            Lol, I love unintentionally tricking people. I love it even more when it is intentional. And no, you're not stupid, just a little slow. Buuuuuut all of us here are, so you should feel right at home XD

                            As for the Astini, I suddenly have an insane urge to draw what one might look like. Might attach a pic to this later lol.

                            If anything you wrote could be published, what would it be?
                            Defintely, "Nothing, Everything." I just love how I'm writing it at the moment. True, there are some flaws that should be fixed, but it's all cool.

                            And I'm glad to say I didn't click on that link with the half naked Asian men. :D

                              This entire thread, original post and all, wins an internet. Where and when would you like it delivered?

                              Just thought you all would like to know.

                              Also, I'm finally done with a large amount of schoolwork and will be resuming, as I've said on my LiveJournal, having fate rape my characters like a seme on an uke in a bad yaoi fic. In case any of you were really curious. Or wanted that kind of mental image. If you really need more to it, imagine all those mostly naked Japanese men in a pile.

                                Darn you all for making me want to draw. I drew an Astini, as I imagine it, although it is quite bare. I did it in Paint, so don't expect too much. If I had done it by hand then it would have been much better...

                                    I feel rich. Thick and buttery too!

                                    And that's how being money makes me feel.

                                    I'd like my internet delivered to the Orion Nebula plz.
