What is the time spent in this?
Long enough to be disoriented....
Hard to say, most get so disoriented they lose track of time, and in some cases their sense of self and identity. You may emerge a different man.
Unleash the Kraken.
...or woman. But that's okay...so we're good.
Some also lose their dignity... all over the console.
Has anyone here ever (or known someone) barfed during this? I've never heard of it from anyone. It wasn't a pleasant experience I'll say, but nothing insane.
Is this the device that looks like it came out of a H.G. Wells novel? If so, my theory was that if you got it spinning fast enough, the occupants would travel back in time.
Instead I remember it being kind of boring and going on for too long. And that's about all I remember from the training.
I thought it was kind of cool. Sure you were tilted back when you weren't, made you think you were spinning one way when you were actually spinning the other, etc. I don't recall being sick at all. More just, "huh, that's weird."
In the future, the Morlocks bag your groceries at the commissary.
We had at least one in my class, made a real mess.
OP, it's only a few minutes. Just don't be the guy that tries to down a huge plate of Panda Express right before.
Likewise. At the end, I thought "that's it?"
No barfing here...but I did float some major air biscuits...which resulted in EMI.
