exactamundo!

now, let's get back to gundam business. I for one apologize about my part
in this mess.

okay peeps, I've been thinking about it a lot. We know that Amuro's gundam
has special magnetic coated joint systems to make it move faster...would
this be the equivalent of superconducting disks that just float of each
other or something? Somehow, I get queasy at the thought of what an
electromagnetic scrambling weapon or EMP attack, can do to a gundam with
magnetic joints....

Another question: how good is the shielding of cockpits in gundam?
