Flash Gordon Logic

Just a reminder that in 1980's Flash Gordon, Ming The Merciless tells his aide Klytus that he's bored, and demands a new world to destroy. Klytus offers him our planet, saying, "The inhabitants refer to it as the planet... Earrrrth."

Note that he pronounces the name like it's something he stepped in, implying neither him nor Ming have ever heard of it before.

One second later, Ming activates his weather machine, and pushes a button labeled "Earth Quake." Wait, what?

A couple seconds later Ming presses another button, this one labeled "Hot Hail," whatever the hell that means. Hail is a form of solid precipitation made of irregularly shaped ICE pellets. So wouldn't "Hot Hail" just be... rain?
