Why would the red button put them to sleep. CMON Red=Kill! Autoskip August 25, 2022 at 12:50 am 1 year ago It’s not as comedic, but what would actually happen is that they’d collapse into piles like marionettes that’d had their strings cut. Dr. Moosen McMoose, Chief Spymooster of the Moosad August 24, 2022 at 9:41 am 1 year ago Putting them to sleep took a single button press, so the kill switch must be activated by pure thought. Efogoto August 24, 2022 at 12:06 pm 1 year ago Perhaps “Kill” is a double-click. Soweli Nasa August 24, 2022 at 12:38 pm 1 year ago I’m imagining it is long-press. Efogoto August 24, 2022 at 9:11 pm 1 year ago I’m having trouble believing a Strib has the patience for that. 😀 someone August 25, 2022 at 9:08 am 1 year ago Kill is a half press. Now hold on. I know what you’re thinking — ‘a press is a press. you can’t say it’s only a half’ — well, TJ “Henry” Yoshi, hear me out. A press actually has three parts to it… woohoo August 24, 2022 at 11:17 pm 1 year ago “killing them would be easier”. It’s a single button press to put them to SLEEP! Omg Stribs you are lazy. Rikard August 25, 2022 at 2:11 am 1 year ago “Why have you killed the humans?” “Huh? I didn’t kill them?… (rumage)… Oh what do you know, I’ve been sitting on the darned button!” Night-Gaunt August 24, 2022 at 10:07 pm 1 year ago Putting them to sleep is killing them as we do at veterinary clinics for cats and dogs. Not the first time that death has been referred to as some kind of sleep. Can the Stribs bring them back awake and alive? Are they that powerful? To wake them from the dead. rws August 24, 2022 at 11:03 pm 1 year ago Suspect that “sleep” is a straight use of the term, not the vet usage. rws August 24, 2022 at 11:04 pm 1 year ago Well this explains what the injection is for. Muzhik August 25, 2022 at 6:35 pm 1 year ago Reminds me of a joke I heard recently (apologies that I can’t think of the comedian — he’s British known for his one-liners). Anyway: I use to date a veterinarian, but I had to stop seeing her. She was always trying to put me down. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
