Class 6 is theoretical only (so far) but yeah, they MIGHT be immune to radioactivity in natural amounts. The idea of making MORE radioactivity to shit on your enemies might even be too extreme for them.
(In response to someone on Steemit commenting about how the dinosaurs didn't realise their shelter was under Antarctica, but I don't have a Steemit account)
Well during their (ancestor's?) time, what became Antarctica was a temperate forest still connected to what would become Australia. So it makes a surprising amount of sense for them not to have realised, assuming they thought it was more likely that the world was still in a global winter than for the continent to have drifted enough south and the climate to have cooled just enough that their shelter was located in one of the few places in the world to be in the permafrost zones, but not so much that the rest of the world was in a similar state. Of course if that's the case, they should be popping their heads out in our timeline in about another century or so unless we get our act together very soon...
The entry for Warp and Weft has been stricken from my copious Ideas File [anyone can comment, and I'm starting to believe that adding a linkie to my ever-growing menu might be a help] because I'm nearing what I feel to be a natural end to the tale.
Even though Warp and Weft has a potential for sequels.
It's Sunday, so my natural inclination to get moving and do anything is almost nil.
And I stayed up until nearly midnight listening to The Adventure Zone. Because I wanted to hear the end of it. Didn't get that far, because it was gone ten PM and there's no way that anyone can listen to 160 minutes of cool RP within two hours.
This is not just a household rodent problem, though we do have one. I've spotted a minimum of one wee sleekit timorous beastie scuttling between hiding places and I plan to do something about it when I have money again.
Yesterday, I had plans to go and fetch my youngest from Scenic Coominya. Beloved had taken a day off and everything. Alas, Capt S had other plans that involved KIABIL and today. So we were told not to come at all.
@Bard2dbone - I only like that massive douche as a favourite victim, tell the truth. If he ever showed his painted face anywhere within my range, I'd delight in punching it in. And then kicking his arse and seeing if I could tell the difference.
Keep in mind that this story was written early on in his alleged reign when it looked like he would only allegedly hold office for a handful of months before the people became incensed and rode him out on a rail. Tar and feathers mandatory.
But now? Now the entirety of the US is in the middle of a Frog Soup Presidency. The insanity of today is nothing compared to the insanity of yesterday, but it's a fuckton worse than the insanity of -say- February. But the US insists on sitting in that pot as the water slowly gets hotter until... Frog Soup.
I've no illusions. The Muppet is going to wreck the world. He's in the middle of wrecking every trace that Obama ever did anything at all. And once he's done screwing America over, he'll start on the sycophant countries that do whatever America says. Like my sunny Australia.
I can try to fight that shit, but all I have is words.
@Bard2dbone - Penelope was the only one I could think of off the top of my head because having a fat heroine is so firkin rare that I could not immediately dredge up other examples.
And since we're on about personal wardrobe choices... We don't really know that she has much choice in the matter. I've seen the options for plus-sized ladies and it's pretty much "sack" or "shapewear". Earth Mother or Mae West. Those are your choices. Her choice of Manic Pixie Pastel Geek is simultaneously mould-breaking and adhering to the aggressively feminine.
But you are totally correct about fat people in media being removed from sexuality. Fat people are allowed to exist, sure, but they aren't allowed to have sex scenes or a consistent romantic relationship. That would be "glorifying obesity" 9_9
To be fat in the Media is to either be Polished to Perfection or the Token Slob. It's not real, but it influences so many people who are also heavy. They can't be seen in comfortable clothes or they'll be mocked as a fat slob. They have to dress up in order to be accepted as human.
I could go on about this. At length. If I have time, I might pop over to my Wordpress and do some opinion pieces.
