Dark Helmet: Yes, we're gonna have to go right to... ludicrous speed.
Sandurz: Ludicrous speed?!? Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't know if this ship can take it.
Helmet: What's the matter, Colonel Sandurz, chicken?
Sandurz: *into intercom* Prepare ship... prepare ship for ludicrous speed. Fasten all seat belts, seal all entrances and exits, close all shops in the mall, cancel the 3-ring circus, secure all animals in the zoo....
Dark Helmet: *taking the intercom* Gimme that you petty excuse for an officer.
*Sandurz sits down and buckles up frantically*
Dark Helmet: *into intercom* Now hear this, ludicrous speed....
Sandurz: Sir, hadn't you better buckle up.
Dark Helmet: Aah, buckle this... *shouts into intercom* Ludicrous speed, Go!
*Spaceball-One takes off past Light Speed and Ridiculous Speed and goes to Ludicrous Speed*
an acronym for Escape Velocity.
Escape Velocity is the name of a computer game by Ambrosia Software, and the popular game franchise that began with it. The Escape Velocity games are open-ended adventure games that conform to a sci-fi theme of space combat and adventure in the distant future; often confused with RPGs, due to the open-ended storylines and user-defined roles.
The original Escape Velocity game was written for Macintosh, as well as its successor Escaoe Velocity Override (EVO). Later, a third game, Escape Velocity Nova or EVN was ported to the PC platform where conversions allowed PC gamers to play the earlier versions with the EVN for Windows game engine.
The EV games (especially EV Nova) can be dramatically altered or enhanced through an endless array of plugins, which can be downloaded or custom designed by the user, giving Escape Velocity a definitive edge in replay value.
a creative way of addressing someone. Stemed from the word punk; knup is punk backwards. More commonly used when addressing someone in place of dude or a similar word. Possibly inspired in part by the term knup-knup, a word that debuted in the popular computer game EVNova
Its use is exceedingly dissimilar from punk regardless of the fact that it stemed from that word. Its invention was spastic, but the word survived nonetheless.
yo knup... damnit you got me saying it now!
lol. can I sell you some knup-knups?
no, and I won't buy any drop-bear repellent either
stuffed knup-knups are a trade commodity 1) or 'junk' that is used as a way of gaining revenue in the game EVNova; this revenue would then be used to buy important things like ship upgrades and weapons, and dumb things like drop-bear repellent.
Also present in several of the less important side-plots of the game.
2) Sometimes used as an inside joke/insult to suggest that someone tends to buy stupid, unneeded things.
1) ISNN reports that the price of price of stuffed knup-knups on Sirgil III is high.
