Well, this reminds me that I wanted to mention that inhumi flying seems
almost as wacky as inhumi space travel.  Just how much are they supposed
to weigh?  What are they made of?  How can they fly without bones?

Add that to the list of things in LS and SS that work a lot better if we
assume low gravity... maglev cars, giant eagles, Flyers, dirigibles, SSTO
landers, godlings, the towers of Green...
