Just a dusty air is bad for laser guns, so a firing requires first open the windows to refresh the air in the den, just for safety.

Seem to be getting a few things muddled together. First it is not a laser but rather a particle accelerator. They don't reference it often but blasters in Star Wars use ammunition clips. Each unit within a clip is a magnetically contained reaction waiting to be released along a shielded pathway that leads out the barrel. If they were lasers then dust is bad for the focusing lens because it heats on the lens and distorts it, ruining the lens. Dust or smoke in the air are not a problem and are actually how you see the beam as in reality if you fire it in a pure vacuum, the human eye wouldn't see it. Ignited particles in the atmosphere when a blaster is fired react and finish almost instantaneously because there is not flammable fuel to keep the reaction going. If the atmosphere was reactive enough then the entire planet's atmosphere would ignite. Back when the Earth could support huge dinosaurs and insects because the massive vegetation was pumping out loads of oxygen, igniting the atmosphere was a real risk. If you fired the blaster in a petrol vapour or cornflour dust saturated airspace then then you would have to worry about being consumed in a fireball.

A game release is an event.

Some game releases are lying somewhere at the horizon line. Say, HalfLife 3 is (or was).

It means that somewhere there is an event horizon where all unreleased games get stuck and exist almost eternally for the external observer.

We can see their dim, colored points and can only guess what's there without any visible details.

Sometimes something happens there, and one of them escapes from the event horizon proximity like, say, Elite Dangerous did.

But anyway this also means that here in the Universe there is a gargantuan black hole consisting of the old unreleased games which attract the new ones to make them fall into the gravity well.

It consists of pure information, so it's a purely entropian black hole.

Could i get into an aerospace engineering school, with my only qualifier being my experience in KSP?

KSP is great because it helps to foster an interest that I'll help you pursue a degree in aerospace engineering. 

I don't think that it alone could get you into a school. If there is such as school, please send details!

You know you spend too much time on rocket forums when you type “hy” and  “hydrolox “ is the first choice of your smartphone’s autocomplete algorithm.

And you are hanging for seconds trying to choose between "hydrolox" and "hydrazine".

Almost all atoms in the same bodies, heavier thatn hydrogen, have appeared in the star(s) of the previous generation and came here as a part of protoplanetary cloud.

Most part of us was orbiting around a giant star 5+ billion years ago.

Or was a part of that star.

Obviously, our nuclear reactors are burning the remains of its supernova.

And the question is: is it worth it?
