Mind you, in Spain I believe one would call “112” and not “911,” but since YOU all have had the language chip implanted in the wernicke area of your brain, you read it as “911.”

      Many countries have programmed their 3 digit emergency call systems to respond to the numbers from other countries.

      Dial 999 in the USA in many places and you’ll get the nearest 911 operator.

      411 is for getting phone numbers or addresses here (and isn’t free). Not sure what good that would do them, unless they’re planning to take him to the hospital themselves.

    For Aitana it should have been “112” (the emergency number in Spain). But, of course, obviously the translator chip is putting this into whatever context the author is from 😉

    Aaaand the cape saves her. Sort of. If it’s attached around her neck like most capes then it’s currently choking her, especially if the other two are hanging on for dear life…

    Now you’re making me wonder what would happen if some Y2K integer overflow rollover software bug type sorta type thing caused all the translation chips in the galaxy to stop working all at once. That would be… fun

    Curioser and curioser, said Alice, also down another hole.

    I can picture Tesfay and Chiphu clinging on to Aitana whose cape has halted her fall, but unfortunately the question that comes to my mind first is: What would Larry, Moe and Curly do in such a situation?

    Monday will bring the answer. And I had better bring a big napkin, because I just might whoop my cup at the revelation.
