Ummm. I say again - how well does Dolly's new body deal with roofies or just plain old chloral hydrate?
Fairportfan 24th Jul 2012, 9:52 PM edit delete reply

I mean, this guy looks like he'd be old drinking buddies with Mister Michael Finn.
Centcomm 24th Jul 2012, 10:08 PM edit delete reply

hey Dolly is cute . but would you really want to deal with the morning after? when she beat you to a pulp ? Waves at Fairportfan :D
Centcomm 24th Jul 2012, 10:07 PM edit delete reply

um well .. about as well as any other human .. probably ?
cattservant 24th Jul 2012, 10:38 PM edit delete reply

Issues of trust and self-reliance. What will Ms. Dolly do? She could use some social 'back up', though she might not realize it...
Centcomm 24th Jul 2012, 10:57 PM edit delete reply

wonders if anyone noticed this is the "second" time someone has told her shes way too wound up ..
cattservant 25th Jul 2012, 1:50 AM edit delete reply

Breaker said as much here, but do you mean by someone else previously?

Here perhaps? Comics 571-575 cover the subject too.
Centcomm 25th Jul 2012, 6:36 AM edit delete reply

ok good point .. then three times :D
velvetsanity 10th Apr 2013, 4:29 AM edit delete reply

She needs to hear it more often, maybe she'll eventually *listen* if she hears it enough
cattservant 25th Jul 2012, 3:27 AM edit delete reply


That is a kind offer. Not to mention CeCi doesn't seem to be ready to break his wrist when he touches her!
Centcomm 25th Jul 2012, 6:37 AM edit delete reply

nah she doesnt mind , "pleasure model" , remember ? :D
cattservant 25th Jul 2012, 8:06 AM edit delete reply

Vitamin vs Hormone...

CeCi can uncover her 'cover functions' and completely distract Mr. Breaker from whatever it is that he is up to!

"Solo" is a cyberpunk term describing a specific character archetype...

I don't have any links off-hand, but I'm sure you can find some if you haven't already

If Dolly is built to handle wasteland toxins, then she should be able to shrug off the swill at the bar. ;p

cant say yet >_<
mushroomisland 25th Jul 2012, 7:43 AM edit delete reply

im excited to see what she'd do when she's drunk...
wright1 25th Jul 2012, 8:44 AM edit delete reply
Dolly drunk would probably be like a meteor impact: something awesome to admire from a safe distance.
cattservant 25th Jul 2012, 9:03 AM edit delete reply

Like from orbit?
Fairportfan 25th Jul 2012, 9:35 AM edit delete reply

Yeah. From about synchronous orbit as a minimum - not as low as Space Station orbit.
cattservant 25th Jul 2012, 12:02 PM edit delete reply

They do say that some of the meteorites found on the antarctic ice sheets came from Mars!
Centcomm 25th Jul 2012, 10:11 AM edit delete reply

hahah - this is gonna be fun !
Marcus Ramesy 25th Jul 2012, 11:17 AM edit delete reply

when you say fun.. are you refering to the potential of dismembered body parts and large explosions that could be see from teh next planet over???? or fun as in watching the dancers and handing them my hard earned money?

LOL CentComm. That is just MEAN to do to your readers. Probably ACCURATE, but mean not giving them ANY clue what is coming up. :-D

To properly envision a sandrat trap, first crossbreed a wolverine with an armadillo. Add porcupine quills. Make the result about four feet long and three feet high at the shoulder. Give it quick reflexes and make it capable of ground-speed bursts up to 15 MPH. Then transplant the psychotically aggressive, utterly fearless personality of a honey badger. You now have one sandrat. Oh, by the way, they're active predators that hunt in packs.

Now you can begin to imagine what kind of mechanism you need if you want to catch one relatively intact, rather than shooting the damn thing with a chaingun from an aircraft, like a sensible person.
velvetsanity 10th Apr 2013, 4:59 AM edit delete reply

Somehow, "building a better mousetrap" just took on a whole new meaning lol
Stormwind13 7th Oct 2013, 3:12 PM edit delete reply

Why would ANYONE want a sandrat alive? I mean, is there something they are good for besides fertilizer? ::Gets out the chaingun:: If so tell me now, before it becomes a mute point.
Tokyo Rose 7th Oct 2013, 4:42 PM edit delete reply

Some people will try to domesticate ANYTHING.

Also, from a biosphere perspective, they weed out the slow, weak, injured, and stupid among the prey species, as well as acting as a check on the numbers of larger predators. A pack of sufficiently-motivated sandrats can kill a juvenile scythe lizard. (It has to be REALLY GOOD motivation. Scythe lizards are surprisingly attentive and very protective parents.)

(I should start writing out full-on bestiary articles or something, shouldn't I.)
Stormwind13 7th Oct 2013, 5:26 PM edit delete reply

Yes, please. :-D

When setting your sandrat trap, be wary of flame bursts and lightning sand.

Don't worry, at least 2 people have made it thru the fire swamp, alive.

Speaking of traps. . . this seems like one. NEVER allow someone else to secure your quarry.
