Default Murphy's rules: How to survive a fall and more

This thread is for minor rule bugs with humorous consequences in GURPS. Because no system is completely without them.

You have to wear armor for this to work. Enough armor to soak all falling damage. The problem is that all armor is treated as flexible for the purpose of falling damage. This does 1 point injury per 5 points of damage.

BUT... if you place a large spike where the guy is falling, this converts damage to impaling, and then damage is only 1 point injury per 10 points of damage. A saw-blade (cutting damage) also works.

"Someone despises me? That is his concern. But I will see to it that I am not guilty of any word or action deserving contempt, Will he hate me? That is his concern. But I will be kind and well-intentioned to all, and ready to show this very person what he is failing to see - not with any criticism or display of tolerance, but with genuine good will..." Marcus Aurelius
