Oh, well. He's clearly evaded us. Let's pack it in and go home, fellas. He's got a headstart. We'll never catch him now.

This would be terrifying.

If tanks weren't scary enough then this should adequately frighten you. I would be unsure if this was a dream or not, so I'd just keep hitting myself, trying to wake up.

No splashing around the $100 million jets. They corrode and rust, then it becomes a whole...thing. Also, no horseplay on the wet areas.
