Very nice work.
I understand about minds that not only see patterns, but are constantly in search of new ones.
Not just in level and processing the day, when your mind seeks patterns in everything you have to learn to process everything else at a lower priority
than would be normal.
Sometimes people get themselves declared Schizophrenic because they can't suppress the Hellish cartoon world in processing mode and they begin to
deal in that reality out of fear...they don't realize that even though they see certain things, because they crack equisite lace-like patterns, it
seems evil will overwhelm any thought of regaining one's composure, and find it was intended to make them laugh, eventually.
Anyway, the government always prepares for some unforseen day of weeping, and wailing, and probably Zombie attacks too.
They did it in ancient times, graneries were just one more thing the king had to plan, anybody living inside the walls did pretty good, anybody living
far enough from the cities did quite well indeed.
Especially when the Bubonic Plague hit.
Anyway, there are so many roads under some major population centers you really start to wonder why they are there.
There are such massive stores of provisions laid in in some of these places that they must be planning on maintaining a breeding herd for several
Maybe they are hiding from solar flares, or P.O.ed aliens wondering where all the gold is, and why we have certain subsegs on the surface.
Maybe they'll park factory ships in space and rapture all the tasty ones up to become chops, steaks, roasts, organ meats, and render anything left
over for Terran Spam.
I figure "clean livers" like church folk should taste a lot better than the meth freaks down the road, and non-smokers, yup they'll get slurped
...This means that Sister Mary Nicolas Dillinger is gonna be something like filling for Venuvian Twinkies...never thought about licking Sister Mary
Nicolas Dillinger before...and to be completely honest with you; I'm not all that at ease with the idea.
Yeah, maybe not so much.
But I have been a witness to an ever expanding world in which regular folks don't seem to be invited to check it out.
It exists on this level but there are societal barriers...even to the nouveau riche.
As they say, money cannot buy class.
I guess all that blasting under Dick Cheney's house was just him opening his escape tunnel down to a maglev station...L.A. to N.Y.C. in under 20
minutes...nobody really flys anymore do they?
Ever hear of "The Ghost Fleet?"
You see, there are very, very many diesel trucks that are always moving, they may seem to belong to ABC Transport, but what's in a name? Especially
when they can do what they are doing and never have a moments problem with scales, speed limits, load limits on feeder roads.
The game seems to be CYA but not the general public's.
Oh well, if TSHTF I'll bet there will be welders sealing the "Drooling Class" into their escape capsule.
Mole people unite!
MONKEY WRENCH NOW!
Got carried away.
