Wimp. It’s getting down below freezing in my state.
What you'll find here: Video games, Doctor Who, Supernatural, and other random stuff.

Dr. Vahlen brought up a new armor design her team had developed; having discovered how to manipulate the alloys used to construct alien craft and equipment, they managed to shape some of the recovered material into basic personal protective equipment.
Dubbed ‘Carapace Armor’, the new equipment is substantially lighter than the standard Kevlar body armor, and should theoretically be more effective at countering their weapons fire.
However, manufacturing the new armor is a labor-intensive project; with any luck, though, we should be able to put it into production before the end of the month.
It will give our troops a much-needed boost, as the aliens seem to be stepping up their activity; they dispatched a rather heavier force with their latest abduction attempt, as the attached after-action report will show.
