Oh, I think the explanation might be that you've been fooled by a simple olfactory misdirection. It's a little bit like ventriloquism of the nose. It's an elementary trick in certain parts of the galaxy. But it has got to be said, I don't like the look of that hydrokilominator. It seems to be indicating that you've got energy feedback all the way through the retro-stabilisers, feeding back into the primary heat converters. OOH! 'Cos if there's one thing you shouldn't have done, you shouldn't have let me press all those buttons. But, to be fair, I will give you one word of advice. RUN!The battle's over and you've lost, you just don't know it yet. Let me tell you how, and maybe why. May or may not involve actual Chess Motifs. It's a speech that may include elements of Out-Gambitted, Last-Second Chance, Kirk Summation, Breaking Speech, and maybe "The Reason You Suck" Speech, but supersedes all of that in ways likely to mark it as a Crowning Moment Of Awesome. It's the Hero letting the Villain know exactly how they have already been defeated. This can also apply to Chessmasters whose plans are not only going exactly how they planned it but also made sure to take account spanners to make sure it stays that way and succeed. Please note that actually saying this in a chess match with serious players is considered poor manners, as it implies your opponent is too stupid to recognize that he has lost.
