Acantha wants to set for her offical portrait first.
Centcomm 12th May 2014, 4:00 PM edit delete reply

this is called sarcasm .. she has a degree in it I think :D
Stormwind13 12th May 2014, 5:29 PM edit delete reply

Degree? No, no... I think Acantha is TEACHING the sarcasm class. :-D
Rashala 12th May 2014, 1:07 AM edit delete reply

Centcomm 12th May 2014, 4:00 PM edit delete reply

heheh ok thats funny :D
mjkj 12th May 2014, 3:07 AM edit delete reply

Awww, poor Acantha...

*hugs her*

...seems like Sassy is one of her royal names...

...at least she gets the treatment without the stinky stuff.

That cold treatment seems to be fast working - I am glad that Lynn will be fine again soon.


...that injector looks quite like a gun. I wonder if they could disguise A's gun as an injector?

Tokyo Rose 12th May 2014, 6:58 AM edit delete reply

Well, it IS an injector. It injects a proper dose of FUCK YOU into obnoxious people.
xpacetrue 12th May 2014, 2:51 PM edit delete reply

LOL! :D Rose, you are so much like your character. (And, yes, that's a good thing.)
Stormwind13 12th May 2014, 5:39 PM edit delete reply

Only if you know how to properly use it, Rose. A great many people inject random objects/people with flying lead because they don't know how to employee it against the proper target. :-p
Centcomm 12th May 2014, 4:01 PM edit delete reply

this is why we lovingly refer to her as the spiky ball of hate :D
Sheela 12th May 2014, 4:59 PM edit delete reply

Meanwhile, both Lynn and Acantha are starting to show their (teen) age!
Centcomm 12th May 2014, 5:17 PM edit delete reply

yes they are :D
Antonious 12th May 2014, 8:35 PM edit delete reply

As if there could possibly be a smooth ball of hate?
Hydrargyrum 13th May 2014, 3:24 AM edit delete reply
Most certainly. And if Tokyo Rose ever comes to resemble one I'll be very, very afraid.
Sheela 13th May 2014, 4:21 AM edit delete reply

A smooth ball of hate, is the 8-ball that your opponent pockets before you do.
Dragonrider 12th May 2014, 8:11 AM edit delete reply

Hey, both my arms can testify to the scaring of hypo spray inoculations from when I got my overseas shots. The Army was using the first gen spray technique instead of walking down a line of corpsmen with needles they all had injector guns and "forgot" to tell us to keep arms muscles tense talk about sore and big damn scars from the injections.
Centcomm 12th May 2014, 4:05 PM edit delete reply

yeah - Military injector guns are not quite as advanced as this thing. it uses a low pressure spray and a trans dermal carrier to transfer the chem . mind you this doesnt work for mass fluid replacement or volumes of drugs over a certain amount .. but the amount of Regenerex needed is about 4 "units" of liquid it is a very tiny amount. and there is some acceleration to help the pass though but it does very little trauma if any ..
Johninaustin 12th May 2014, 9:53 AM edit delete reply
Wait. They have a cure for the common cold?:O
Centcomm 12th May 2014, 4:05 PM edit delete reply

no they have a fix for the symptoms .. :D
Sheela 12th May 2014, 4:59 PM edit delete reply

Oh, oh, oh .. I know a cure, I know !
Me me me !
Stormwind13 12th May 2014, 5:41 PM edit delete reply

The fix for a cold is simple John... Get plenty of fluids and sleep. It will be gone in a week or so (if your immune system isn't completely screwed at least). :-D

You are the cure for the common cold, Sheela? I thought you would be more about CAUSING it then fixing it. Dragging unsuspecting people out into the snow and rain to get your walks in. Then when they get back inside, making sure to shake off the excess water all over them (after they have taken off their winter gear). :-D
Sheela 13th May 2014, 4:22 AM edit delete reply

No, no, no .... Beheading is the answer !
Works every time. :)
Stormwind13 13th May 2014, 6:09 AM edit delete reply

Granted that would take care of the problem, Sheela. Seems a bit extreme for a cold. :-D
KarToon12 12th May 2014, 1:34 PM edit delete reply

As if getting shots didn't freak me out already, I'd be scared to death if I saw a shot GUN like that. D:
xpacetrue 12th May 2014, 3:13 PM edit delete reply

Q: You are afraid of needles, correct? But you would rather get shots from a needle than from a hypospray (jet injector) in the shape of a gun? Keep in mind that the jet injector is noninvasion (does not penetrate the skin) and is not so painful.

BTW: These comments reminds me of my dad, who would joke about shots with giant needles "this long", and "square" instead of round. :D
Dragonrider 12th May 2014, 4:03 PM edit delete reply

It wasn't a joke the square needle in the left###. Todays Hyposprays maybe painless bur I damn well guarantee the first gen weren't, and from comments I heard years later the 2nd and 3rd gen were not painless either just faster than the old nedle.
Centcomm 12th May 2014, 4:07 PM edit delete reply

Hey im scared of needles as well. so I totally feel your pain on that. im actually rather terrified of them Rose can tell you how i acted during my blood draw - it wasn't pretty and she was perfect.. ( the person that drew the blood .. )
Sheela 12th May 2014, 5:02 PM edit delete reply

Wait, what ?
... oh, for a moment there I thought you said that Rose was perfect. :)

Meanwhile, more needles !
Mister Black 13th May 2014, 2:22 PM edit delete reply

What's wrong with needles? As long as they're sharp, and the person using them knows what they're doing, that is.
Stormwind13 13th May 2014, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

What's wrong with them? They are used to poke holes in my hide. I don't like holes in my hide! :-D
HiFranc 11th Apr 2015, 1:28 PM edit delete reply

When growing up I never had a problem with needles. As a teenager, I had to get the BCG vaccine and that *hurt* so I've been nervous around them ever since.

Years after that a nurse told me that the BCG has to be done in such a way to leave a scar (as a visible sign to other medical professionals) that it had been done.
Tokyo Rose 13th May 2014, 2:27 AM edit delete reply

I used to think I was afraid of needles.

Then I saw how Cent reacts to needles.

That made me realize that I am not "afraid" of needles; I just don't like them.

(I stood on Cent's near side and said "LOOK AT ME, DON'T LOOK OVER THERE, LOOK AT ME" a lot. Along with "STOP HOLDING YOUR BREATH".)
Sheela 13th May 2014, 4:25 AM edit delete reply

Oh my, that does sound bad.



A friend of mine will black out from Needles - he isn't afraid of them, but he will black out from them.
He says the last thing he remembers before fainting is an immense hatred and an overwhelming need to attack whoever is stabbing him, and then it goes black.

After a quick chat with a shrink, he was told that basically his mind gets into a tiff with itself, because "someone is hurting me, ATTACK!" versus "Hey, it's my doctor, I can't attack him" and he locks up and so his brain basically does a quick reboot.
Centcomm 13th May 2014, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

for me the very thought of something going under my skin and injecting or taking stuff out gives me the screaming whim whams - even talking about it or setting up a scene in daz affects me. and yeah im really happy rose was there with me at the blood draw :D
Stormwind13 13th May 2014, 8:38 PM edit delete reply

Wait, Rose drew blood? You are supposed to de-thorn Roses before you handle them, CentComm. :-D
Sheela 14th May 2014, 10:58 AM edit delete reply

Rose is secretly a vampire, she feeds on Centcomm whenever she can.

This is also why sometimes we loose a few readers, every now and then.
Stormwind13 14th May 2014, 5:39 PM edit delete reply

I'm glad I like Italian... Make sure to keep PLENTY of garlic in the blood stream. :-D

I've got a button that pretty sums up my attitude about vampires - I don't hate vampires. I just don't like anything that is HIGHER on the food chain than I am. :-D

I recently stumbled upon Data Chasers and am now enthralled by the story and characters. The world, art, and dialog are glorious!

So I've been reading through the archives at lightning pace because I can't tear myself away, and the updated page 116 is still quite fresh in my memory. Did they end up becoming complete primitives after all?
Some Ed 13th Feb 2019, 2:16 PM edit delete reply
I have encountered pairings of excellent doctors who had significant disagreements on technical details like this before.

Sometimes, if you get the one who uses the newer technique that the other one claimed was problematic in some way after the one using the older technique gave their schpiel, you can talk with them about it and learn some subtle change in the technique that gets around the problem the first was concerned about.

But if you get a more run of the mill doctor, they'll use the newer technique without the little tweak... or they'll use the tweak without being aware of it... or they'll use the older technique without being aware there's an update... or without having looked into the update despite knowing about it.

Different people are different, and this applies to doctors, too. There are undoubtedly even scenarios for the new/old technique I've not outlined above, including ones I haven't encountered or thought of.
