Shower thoughts

KSP is the Kerbal afterlife world.

That's why the lost Kerbals resurrect at the same place. 
It's that exact place where they appear after death. Every death.

That's why all Kerbals look same and have same "surname". 
It's not a surname, it's a name for these afterlife kind of species.
And they look same because it's not their original, individual appearance. It's their "standard" afterlife "body" layout. Not changing, not aging.

They don't eat or breathe because they are not living (btw did you ever see their chests expanding, except in fanfics)?
That's why they can fly endlessly in a cramped capsule with no supplies, like mummies in sarcophags.
And the "life support" mods make as much sense like bringing fruits and flowers for a mummy.

And no baby Kerbals around. Because they don't belong to that afterlife, and don't get born there.

Their world lacks cities, crops, or anything but lifeless areas around the lifeless buildings, strange monuments, and sickly, motionless trees.
With no leaves on ground, isn't it strange? Did you see any gardener in this garden?
Pyramids, tombs, ruins... No living settlements around. Only signs of existed life...

A strange ocean covers the planet. With no waves, no storms. Absolutely calm, absolutely motionless.

No winter, no summer, no seasons, no weather. Just one eternal  season and no equator tilt or the sun yearly movement.

No animals, no fishes. Only invisible crickets chirping like birds.

But wait... What are those two bright spots in the sky?
It's the Kerbin moons. One is a desert full of dust, with no water, no air. An Ash Moon.

Another one is cold and covered with ice, while the planet is enough close to the Sun to be a rather warm place.
It's an Ice Moon, or Minmus. It's cold like the Dante's Cocytus. It's the place which never melts, because even time is frozen there.

Other planet are different, but same grotesque and impossible.
It's like a deformed version of the Solar System. But shrinked, mutated.

Only Mars is more or less recognizable. The only real planet which could be populated by humans.

"Venus" and "Jool" have bright, unnatural colors, purple and green.
Probably, they play some significant emotional role in this afterlife astral world.

And look at the KSC, its monumental buildings.
It's like giant building structures from lucid dreams. And their windows spread light in the night, while nobody is visible neither outside, on the evergreen grass, or inside, like blurry shadows in windows.

The inexhaustible pool next to the "personnel" building.
It isn't just water, you can't swim there. It's like a chalice of souls. 
Or a chalice of oblivion.

You "hire" the Kerbals in the building next to this pool. Because they resurrect there, it's a mansion of souls, the Kerbarium.
Then they invisibly get into other buildings to wait for their turn to fly, explode, and resurrect again.

Who had a doubt if TARDIS is real?

To keep the one intact, they save other five thousand, to hide the one between the many.

The trick is ancient like the ancile.

A lot of games become a movie these days. The game fans are discussing their cast of dream.

When will they make a KSP series? Say, by Uwe Kerboll.
Maybe we need a poll about the KSP casting, too? Who should play Jeb, Bill, Bob? Who will play Val?
SFX can make them all twice shorter, green-skin, and pop-eyed.

It isn't exactly a shower thought, but it was an after school conversation my soon-to-be eleven year-old daughter and I had. 

Dad, if each planet were an ice cream flavor... And with that, we came up with a list. Not all of these heavenly bodies are planets, but it was fun. 

The Sun: Ghost Pepper flavored

Mercury: Black cherry and Dutch chocolate

Venus: Blue raspberry (sherbet)

Earth: Rocky road

Mars: Pumpkin spice

Jupiter: Coffee/mocha chocolate

Saturn: English toffee and vanilla bean

Uranus: Pistachio

Neptune: Blue cotton candy flavored

It was fun and we had to get a little creative. We even had to go to some websites of grocery stores to make sure the flavors were legitimate.

So... What would some of your ice cream flavors be to represent the solar system?

 

 

what about pluto :huh:

I wonder if people had such a hard time accepting that the Sun and Moon were no longer planets.

It still looks weird that Uranus and Neptune are.

They have to share the signs and thus also houses with Saturn and Jupiter, just like Pluto has to do with Mars.

Was it actually necessary to include Uranus and Neptune (let alone Pluto) in the planet list, when they are just astral twins of the normal classic planets and are never visible wihout a telescope?

Maybe we should expand it to any "wanderer" up there. And as stars slowly move...

Probably, we should distinguish the "planets" and the "wanderers", as how many "planets" can rule the same Zodiac sign (and corresponding horoscope house)?
It's already two of them per sign and some hotheads add even other Kuiper bodies. It's a madness. It should be stopped.

Neither Pluto, nor Neptune, nor Uranus should be planets.

Say, KSP.
It has Sun, Moon, Moho, Eve, Dune. Jool.
(Some add Minmus, Dres, and Eeloo, but they are so small andinsignificant that don't deserve their own place.)

Six obvious planets.
Six days in any Kerbal week (I was counting visually.  It has a "solar week", about 6+ days long, and a "stellar" week, about 5+ day long). So, basically six.
Six hours in a Kerbal day.

So, six or twelve zodiac signs and astrological houses match the Kerbal world even better than the human "planets".

But even on the Earth the classic seven is much better than the distortion brought by Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. They should not be counted as planets.
