29. "RE: Memo to the Bureau of Ships"
In response to message #28

Meanwhile, in the "personal equipment" section of the BattleTech Technical Readout 3026, someone felt the need to include the caveat, "Each grenade may be used only once."

Ah, '80s game manual editing.

Also, the first edition of Teenagers from Outer Space stipulated that a Popcorn Grenade would fill the space in which it was employed, without specifying an upper bound if, for instance, it was used outdoors. Therefore, logically, using one outdoors would destroy the universe.
