They still haven’t lost the “awe” factor yet. Gawking too. And being aliens you cannot be indiscreet because of the alien part. The killing part sounds just like Earth. We humans are experts at it. You should have gone fully stealth from landing, to walking around using visual-thermal hiding clothing. (Or whatever the G.O.B. offers.) This is a bad idea going wrong from the get go. Better to turn around and leave. I know, not possible. So I see many adventures ahead. Though the coyote may die first for being a coyote. Muzhik January 13, 2020 at 6:38 pm 3 years ago Though the coyote may die first for being a coyote. I beg to differ. He’s too wily. Now if a roadrunner appears, all bets are off. Coyoty January 13, 2020 at 12:45 am 3 years ago The ground dwellers seem very attentive. (Not.)

Efogoto January 13, 2020 at 2:09 am 3 years ago Well, Nogg always started them off with pirates, to get them to work as a team.

Polyglot January 13, 2020 at 5:51 pm 3 years ago Apologies if this has already been discussed, but just wondering why the translator had Bikkie speaking a kind of pidgin, but Ruddock speaks in grammatically correct full sentences? Are coyotes smarter than kangaroos? Better socialized? Did the translator not have kangaroo in the database and was just winging it? Pete Rogan January 13, 2020 at 9:07 pm 3 years ago I always thought that was the cadence and word choice that was in Bikkie’s head. No niceties of grammar or of conduct; what you got what was he thought, and in Bikkie’s case, that was short, sweet, and to your snoot. Pete Rogan January 13, 2020 at 9:08 pm 3 years ago Also: BLOOD!
