From XKCD Wiki
schwal is a bipedal humanoid lifeform, which should be pretty obvious because he's human.
Shoot trouble. If that fails, identify the failure mode:
- For "UX rant loops"
- Attempt to placate with reminders of Civilization V.
- Link to interesting space news.
- If all else fails, ask for help with spacecraft abort modes.
- For "The Space shuttle was an expensive unsafe terrible idea"
- Remind that they've stopped using it.
- Mention how nice Orion is looking to be, so something good came out of it.
- Note that safe re-usable rockets are in development.
- For all other failure modes
- If opportunity presents itself, make pun.
- Link to space news.
