Lastly, we have the SSC that everyone is most familiar with, Rabies! What do all the SSC posts mean? Jess has SSC on the brain?! Side series?!?! Maybe someday if time permits.

We’ll be back next Monday (the 10th) with regular Monday/Wednesday updates that should run steady through the end of the chapter. Thank you for your patience.

    SSC on the brain is actually a very common syndrome. No treatment is neccessary, you should just let it run its course (although in many cases the condition can be permanent).

    A very important question: When Rabies was regenerated, she said she had only five left. Would that be 5 lives, or 5 regenerations, and would that include the current one? In other words, is this incarnation Rabies4 or Rabies5?

      That’s a very, very good question. One that I’m not going to answer just yet.

        Is this one of these things we’re not supposed to ask? Like never ask a human woman her age, and never ask a catgirl which of her lives she’s currently on?

    Incarnation 4 I would think. I am guessing her species can only be regenerated 9 times accurately. Anything more than 9 regenerations may have sever mental or physical issues during the regeneration process.

      But if she’s counting the current one as one of the 5 she has left, then she’s Rabies5. I’m just wondering if she counts the same way we Eds do when we regenerate.

      Seems about right to me!

    Rabies seems to be the groups engineer by the look of her goggles.

      Not neccessarily, maybe those are just to keep the blood splatter out of her eyes. It’s not a huge problem until you start fighting those Sigourney-Weaver-type Aliens with the super-acidic blood, then you’re really glad you wore the goggles.

      I wonder where this idea came from. I’ve never seen a real-life engineer with goggles, but I might think the same. If I ever make it though school I’m going to be the engineer that wears the goggles around.

        After decades as an engineer myself and working around other engineers, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one with goggles either, so I’m going to call this myth “busted”. However, if I had to guess, it probably dates back to the much earlier days of engineers, when the stuff they worked with was far, far more likely to blow up in their faces than it is now (and nobody had yet invented “safety glasses” as alternate protective eyewear). I suspect that Rabies probably has a much higher chance of encountering stuff blowing up in her face than I do.

          Wait, so you’re saying you are in a position, right now, to don some engineering goggles? You have to do this. You can make this a thing!

            No problem, but only if you can get an actual live catgirl to ask me in person. If I find out catgirls like a man in engineering goggles, I’m all there, for sure! Heck, I’d wear just about anything Rabies asks me to. 😉

          • Aaron Balogh October 8, 2016 2:47 am

            Hmm, I wonder how Jess would look in fur. “Nah, Ed8 that’s totally a real catgirl. Go ahead kiss her and see if the claws come out…”

          • Ed8 October 12, 2016 7:37 am

            Wait, are you suggesting that some of those other catgirls that I …ummmm…met…previously might also possibly have not been real actual authentic catgirls?! I thought that seemed like five-oclock-shadow-stubble, but they totally assured me it was just really short catgirl fur! I’m so disillusioned! 🙁

          • Aaron Balogh October 13, 2016 3:31 am

            Repeat after me: “every catgirl at a con is suspect”.

        Could be for laser welding. Who knows. All I know it’s not mad scientists that make doomsday devices, it’s mad engineers. I do hope there is a special hell for engineers where they have to do maintenance on the equipment they design. They will get to experience all the “fun” of removing and replacing high failure items in cramped spaces where there isn’t enough room for your tools and your hand or the joys of having to remove most of an engine just to replace a light bulb.

          Gar! I too have had this light bulb frustration. >:(

          What actually happens:

          Engineer: “Hey, boss, look at this new product I designed! All the parts are extremely durable and reliable, standardized and cheaply available aftermarket, interchangeable, easily accessible and quickly replaced without anything more than a common screwdriver! Isn’t it awesome?!”

          Management/Business Major/Executive: “IDIOT! Take this bleeping nonsense back right now and redesign it so that all components are sealed, all parts are proprietary to our company, they fail randomly starting 1 day after warranty, everything is attached to each other using nonstandard tools only we have, and so that if a small part breaks half the unit has to be replaced, and the most likely parts to fail are completely inaccessible without disassembling the entire unit! If I find out anyone is able to fix one of these themselves without bringing them back to our company’s service department for twice what it cost to buy it new, you’re bleeping FIRED!! Stupid Bleeping Engineers!!”

            I see now why engineers build doomsday devices.

          • Ed8 October 8, 2016 2:47 am

            Yup. Exactly.

          • Aaron Balogh October 8, 2016 2:50 am

            Hey as the holder of a business degree I may represent a part of that equation!

            I’m a huge proponent for overlap. I think that the people managing engineers should have some engineering background, but also have that management background. I also think it’s important for engineers to gets some machining experience so they know what it’s like for the poor bastards tasked to create their designs.

          • Ed8 October 12, 2016 8:06 am

            I also thought it would be good for the engineers to get some machining experience so they know what it’s like for the poor bastards tasked to create their designs, but the Business Major Corporate Exec in charge told us not to bother, as he was planning on replacing all those poor bastards with robots next month anyway to save money.

          • Aaron Balogh October 13, 2016 8:14 pm

            Poor bastards. I can guess who’s going to have to design and build those robots too *sadly shakes head* stupid executives.
