As Luigi and Toad are exploring Water Land in Leaping Lizards , some Cheep Cheeps jump from the water to try and attack them, but most are avoided; some of the fish also appear three weeks later among the crowds at the International Mushroom Games. This book also describes Cheep Cheeps as having crab-like claws when one pinches Toad . In Pipe Down! , Ludwig von Koopa will sic some Cheep Cheeps on the Mario Bros. if they attempt to attack him directly during one portion of the book, and some will attack Mario along with some other monsters if he pulls the wrong nob on Ludwig's giant pipe organ.
Some years ago ( am I giving my age away with those kinds of statements?) I read a ScjFi story that proposed building a maglev train in an evacuated tube, running several km underground. The train picks up velocity during its free fall phase, glides along on its frictionless mag fields to its destination, then rises back to the surface. Total energy costs for a 5000 km trip (assuming room temp. super conductors) approaching zero,,,of course, the author neglected to mention energy costs for keeping the tube evacuated of air but,,,hey, it would probably be more cost effective than flying, driving or any other surface transport.
The ball is meant for straight shots and scoring spares, making it ideal for less experienced players. Since it is a straight shot ball, it should respond to all lane conditions in the same way. The price is great for a bowling ball, it only costs $48. Don’t worry about poor quality, it comes with a 2 year warranty. Keep in mind the ball does not come with finger holes, which means you’ll have to get it drilled. This is ideal in many ways because the ball will be customized for your performance and comfort. If you want an affordable ball ideal for straight shots, this could be the one for you.
