Three different noises, - Oh je!
Who has three legs in Jennifers universes?

How to react?
Hide?
Tell them that they are here for a wonderful message of Godan?
Run?
Improvise to be a team of journalists, making a home story of ... what ever?


A few years ago, I'd read a book of a german adventurer, he (and a friend) wanted to make contact to some people, indians in the amazon region. The problem was how to prevent an attack, these people had very good reasons to mistrust strangers.
To walk silent through their woods could be understand as an hostile action.
The solution was to be loud, but not simply yelling and talking, it was - music.
He had a flute and whistled the whole time happy improvised songs
It worked, the indians where friendly and welcomed the two guys as friends.
However, this way to handle it, is to late for Vola and Pho.


In Germany we have a "joke".
What makes 999 times klick and one times klack?
A "Tausendfüßer" with a leg made of wood.
not translateable, why?
A "thousendfeet"

Easy to translate!

Q: "What makes 999 clicks and one clack?"

A: "A Millipede with a wooden leg!"

And interestingly, "millipede" literally means "thousand-feet". So you see, you translated well anyways!

Hmm... does/can shatterel have any nutritional value to white life?

Probably not. It's like crystalized air, and air is only digestible when it's in a more fluid state.

Remember, the repair drone Cursor used to start the Min Yan Empire had an injured leg. Now wait and watch as the leg gets injured in the elsewhen....
