Are you one of those people who bitch about the square-cube law while other people are trying to enjoy Pacific Rim? Because this is basically the same argument. :)

D'you know, I'm reasonably sure there are places in the UF universe where this is exactly the case...

Perhaps, although in the case of AiNA, most of those occasions seem to have involved one or both of the following:

- Korra's personal style not involving a lot of gadgetry or the inclination to spend a bunch of time getting to grips with it; or

- You being annoyed that I didn't use Ubiquitous Information Technology to make various scenes much less fun or omit them altogether.

In the former case, well, that's the character at work. In the latter, it's you trying to ice-skate uphill, I'm afraid. :)
