    It’s good to see the first successful field test of the Strib antivax on an unprepared and disbelieving first subject. Good things can come from this, I can tell.

    I think rws has a point: Ruddock should at least try to suborn the computer. It could be… shall we say relaxing? It depends on what the central computer actually controls, like the installation of all those drug-delivery headsets. That could be honestly, deeply funny.

    And might lead to a better solution than carbonizing the Stribs. Sorry, Night-Gaunt.

        I would expect the same way the Stribs wash their hair, e.g., somebody grabs them and forces them into a tub full of hot soapy water and scrubs them till the stink goes away. Because I’ve never seen a Strib so much as worry about cleanliness. It may be a universal taboo with them.

    I wonder if ot eventualy goes the ruddock route and the stribs get oversized sentient bio-robott Mice that are conditioned to raise & enducate strib babies (puppies?)

      OMG, that’s brilliant. And that’s how the next generation of Stribs is raised to be kind, sympathetic people. To the current generation of Stribs frustrated disgust.
