Did anyone else see this emblazoned on the sides of several boxes in the supply room that Ronon and Teyla talked in?

I cracked up when I saw it. That amount of detail is what makes Stargate amazing. Now, the question is: what shouldn't be put in a Ring Transporter under any circumstances?

Indeed..... they were all opened so something the AU team used as supplies?

Probably was just food and the rings thing was a in joke to the fans :P

MAGNETS! Its scientifically impossible to transport magnets through the ring platform. It would destroy the universe!

I noticed too and as the end was coming and they had no way of getting off the ship I was hoping they'd use the rings to transport down to one of Atlantis' transporters (I mean, it has to be possible right? I've been expecting to see that happen since "Hide & Seek") or at least to some hidden ring platform they haven't found yet (but that would be just too convenient).

Wait, are the Daedalus and the Apollo even equipped with a ring platform anymore?

I remember seeing one on The Prometheus, but after it was destroyed, did we use one still?

The Oddy does, and was built after the Daedalus

Ha!
Can't believe I didn't notice this...

It would have been call to see them us the rings to get off the ship.

It seems all manner of objects and living beings within the Milkly Way uses it.

We have never seen anyone outside the milky way other than the Ori uses it.

So I suspect that is has to be Asgard FOOD!!! "I like the yellow ones. :P"

by the fact the boxes were all empty it was prob food, or med supplies (ronon was goingthru a medpack i think) maybe it messes with the molecules or something

I kinda just figured that the ring transporters are a bumpy ride (which would also explain the no-zero-g bit). Or maybe they cause slight heating when something is put through them, and that would explode whatever was in the box.

I don't know what couldn't go through, if it was food why not? People can survive it so why not food?

So...maybe popcorn? :)

Easy answer to this:

Water balloons!

They'll explode in the ring transporter, don't respond well to Zero-G gravity, and can be used as an auxiliary weapon in case of ship-board invasion. :lol:

Popcorn?...awesome response! Water balloons?...a close second.

On a serious note, I would guess that TPTB could fall back on the old "alternate reality rings just work different" than our rings. If forced to explain themselves I think they'd put forth such a defense.

However, we all should just relax and enjoy the comedy here rather than nitpicking every detail for continuity and reasonability.

This is kinda hard to answer.....

never put an exploding cake in there, the rings are probably hard to clean and it might make the stability of the PG go out of control. You saw how those kids acted over chocolate in Childhood's End, they would probably go to war over cake.

You would have to watch out for Wraith and hostile hyper kids when you go on a mission after that.
