Long jumps produce a greater physical strain on carbon-water-based bodies than shorter jumps.

There have even cases where folks have died due to the strain, but those were generally the elderly and folks with pre-existing heart conditions.

Q. Is there anything similar to an international police/naval force for dealing with pirates and protecting colonies that can't protect themselves? Is it properly funded or given the decommissioned scraps of other forces' navies?
