If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

FFS, why don't they build a people mover pneumatic tube system already!

Don't be ridiculous, Jessica.

There are no cons.

Friends don't let friends read "Atlas Shrugged"

I used to work for an association for engineers. The problem with a people mover pneumatic tube is that, given a sufficient distance, the people would arrive completely squished (the comparison I heard was "strawberry jelly").

She's already Aeryndynamic.

"I yam what I yam and that's all what I yam," -- Popeye

I can't remember which story I read it in, but I have a vague memory of a spaceship where the computer calculates a maneuver, and the dialog goes something like:

Crewman1: "Wait, that requires 50 gees acceleration!"
Crewman2: "We'd end up like strawberry jam!"
Computer: "Yes?"
Crewman1: "And the radiation flux would be [some very high amount]!"
Crewman2: "Strawberry jam on toast!"
Computer: "Shall I proceed?"

eta: I think it was one of John M. Ford's Star Trek novels, How Much For Just the Planet?

Definitely How Much for Just the Planet?

Relevant to Buffistae interests:

"If you feel nostalgic for the days when Gerard Way appeared on Tiger Beat, when AIM away messages with melodramatic lyrics described your mood, and when Hot Topic still had the red logo, there’s the perfect music festival for you. One that beats any Warped Tour lineup. When the When We Were Young festival poster was shared on Twitter, it felt too good to be true; some even thought it was a practical joke, or a Fyre Festival 2.0. But thankfully, it’s real!

On Saturday, October 22, 2022 in Las Vegas, you can see My Chemical Romance, Paramore, The All-American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, AFI, Avril Lavigne, Jimmy Eat World, Bright Eyes, Hawthorne Heights, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and other 2000s (and current day) emo favorites."
