Pretty brilliant and insightful if you think about it. Life and skill in war is as fleeting and meaningless to the universe as a minor detail of something we never pay mind to, a simple oil drip from a hydraulic door.

Over five minutes of characters rolling critical fumbles.

Visual poetry, and my favorite of all the original shorts.
