Comic #2234

1 Martian 3: So why a Large Hadron Abrasion Tool?
2 Martian 2: Those Earthlings destroyed everything with their Large Hadron Collider.
3 Martian 2: The problem was, it was too crude, just flinging hadrons together and creating a mess. It was ultimately just sheer destructiveness.
4 Martian 2: We need finesse.
4 Martian 3: I see.
4 Martian 2: Hand me that jackhammer.
