Many email hosts offer plain domains in addition to letting you host your custom domain. In theory that's similar, and somewhere probably between your domain and Google's in hijack potential.

1. There has not yet been a battle royale game that made thematic sense.
2. There's a dearth of Dune games in the world.
THEREFORE: I propose a Sardaukar training exercise, set on Salusa Secundus.

I wish there was some way to convey to people who look sad when I don't remember their name, that I sometimes forget my *family's* names. I just spent five minutes panickedly trying to remember two of my favorite people's first names, and blithely referred to somebody I know super-well as Sebastian, when he's actually a Sylvester.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
