The mice!” “Oh! You can talk?” “Yes! How can you live with yourself now, you monster?!” “Easy. I was hurting you on purpose.” Frith Ra January 12, 2022 at 12:59 am 2 weeks ago Just a different spelling of stun: V-A-P-O-R-I-Z-E rws January 12, 2022 at 1:24 am 2 weeks ago This kind of verifies one of my theories. Most of the species in the Galaxy are in fact not sentient. The translator tech causes non sentient creatures to appear sentient. Fairly clear that Ruddock is in fact not sentient. He has many fine qualities, but intelligence is not one of them. My sympathies go out to King. sheer_falacy January 12, 2022 at 1:28 am 2 weeks ago If you view “gullible” is identical to “non-sapient” you’re on the path to furryite sandwiches. Delicious, delicious furryite sandwiches. rws January 12, 2022 at 11:22 am 2 weeks ago Point is that without the translator, telling the difference between sapient and non-sapient can be difficult. Really difficult. TB January 12, 2022 at 4:19 pm 2 weeks ago Sorry, but in nature “gullible” translates to “lunch.” Species like Angler Fish have evolved to take advantage of this.

I wonder what Ruddock scans as on the Aproxyscan? pitgamer January 12, 2022 at 10:12 am 2 weeks ago I love the beat panel in this one. “Stun.” Love it. SteelRaven January 12, 2022 at 11:01 am 2 weeks ago That coyote is now my favorite character of the internet. DethLok January 15, 2022 at 1:06 am 2 weeks ago They weren’t before??? Efogoto January 12, 2022 at 7:01 pm 2 weeks ago I can’t tell if Leb and Pally are speechless with awe in the presence of their creator or fear in the presence of that beast-who-eats-our-kind. It’s a toss up. Night-Gaunt January 12, 2022 at 7:54 pm 2 weeks ago We saw before that Ruddock accidentally activated his LASER weapon when he sneezed. I wonder how he is to do so otherwise. The normal way that is. Pete Rogan January 12, 2022 at 9:52 pm 2 weeks ago Just a note in passing: Should Ruddock trigger his laser and NOT cause Aitana to bounce two hundred meters out of range, that will prove she isn’t wearing even part of her armor on this trip. Word to the wise, and all that.

Just_IDD January 13, 2022 at 1:35 pm 2 weeks ago I love that changing the setting isn’t even an issue now since the Strib ship’s medibot already inoculated Ruddock for his Strib allergy. Pete Rogan January 13, 2022 at 4:13 pm 2 weeks ago True. It’s nothing to sneeze at. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
