Like I said before, back to something a little more action oriented. Anyhoo, I had to break a couple of laws of physics in order to get this gag to work. In reality, you wouldnt be able to hear the sound effects, or the Space Pirates sarcastic comment to his superior. Heck, I dont think he even would have had time to make the comment before his body depressurized and froze.
Then again, this is a comic where the laws of physics don't apply to everything, right?
Well he could of started to say it when he heard to explosion and so been able to say it the seconds before his froze... or lip reading since he'd still say it but you couldn't hear it... then again who's to say they can't exist in the vacume of space, they aren't human, how do we know that they even breath or are affected by the cold?
" Then again, this is a comic where the laws of physics don't apply to everything, right?"
Wrong. There must be some laws in comics like gravity. But the laws that no one cares of are braked
Why not just say they're in space suits with communicators?
well, the way it works, you would be able to hear the explosion from the inside of the ship, as for the pirate's line; the room would've still had enough atmosphere to carry sound for at least a few seconds, it looks like a fairly large room (he'd just have to yell over the whooshing sound) As for the freezing, space pirates are made of pretty tough stuff, hard exoskeletons reinforced with metal armor, so they could probably survive for a little while in hard vacuum. In fact, scientists think that even humans could survive unprotected in space for a few minutes (more or less, whether you are in direct sunlight or not is a factor) you'd lose consiousness in about a minute, but with proper medical treatment (and if you remembered to open your mouth so your lungs don't explode) you could be brought back.
seriously, i read this somewhere, people at NASA apparently worry about explosive decompression as much as sci-fi writers do
...Let's just say a wizard did it and leave it at that.
Even the badguys have to be careful of invoking Murphy. XD
those two remind of a metroid flash on newgrounds..
