It seems to me that the shield would be able to "block" the ground, possibly with the effect of bouncing itself into the air and straining Tahu a bit... but on the other hand, are we sure that Tahu was thinking of the ground as an "attack?" The Hau seems to operate on its wearer's perception - if the wearer doesn't think of something as an attack, then the shield lets it through.Now, I think that the shield itself could potentially absorb the impact of a fall - it has been shown absorbing attacks without transferring their force to Tahu. This high up, though, it's more likely that Tahu would lose his focus, the shield would break, and he would still smash into the ground.
BZPRPG TIME, where you could have one post talk about dinner, and the next about lunch.
Time is beyond relative here.
There's no reason not to put lasers in the palms of planet-sized robots. In fact, if I had my own planet-sized robot, palm lasers would be one of my first upgrades. It's good for self-defense if you're attacked by something big.
