Given her clothing style and nautical interests, I look forward to a character trying to call her "Captain Sweatpants".

(Assuming Big Bang Theory exists in the  QC universe.)

Like jheartney said, that's some really nice insight - thanks! I also didn't/don't know a lot about autism, like, the kinds of ways it specifically shows and the behavioral patterns, and hearing you say Brun represents it well is good to hear. Maybe I'll learn more about autism as Brun's character is shown more, which would be cool.

@Eastrim - You weren't here during The Great Shipping Wars  *Shudder*


And I bet Brun even knows where her towel is.

Like others, I want to know how to enunciate an ellipsis!

I wonder how fluently Brun can read back from her mental index cards the history of whaling? I also wonder how difficult she found it to associate those facts with anything in her personal reality.

Also, would I be right to say that Boston was a whaling port way back when?

More likely, she'll hit him a few times, suddenly get enormous cramps in her atrophied arm muscles (because she's too used to her nanobots doing the work) and be nearly knocked unconscious by the pain.

That's a good point. Even Ardent, a nanotech minimalist, uses it to block pain out to the point that he didn't notice a severed limb until it was pointed out to him. There's a real chance that she's not felt any actual pain in years, maybe decades.

She looked pretty sore when Alice duffed her up at their first meeting! Still, she didn't stay that way for long..

Hopefully, she has some of the genetic modifications Ardent has that are independent of nanotechnology so she can physically recover from this quicker than a baseline human in the same situation.  Otherwise she'll be immobile for the next few strips as well as vulnerable to disease although if she survived the previous ordeal I doubt the author would kill her with an illness.

More importantly, we've kind of found out the hard way, it's not all that renewable.

It'd be quite renewable if it were only small populations doing it.  We as a species tend to spam-out our genes faster than the replacement rate of whales.

Kerosene is easier to come by and doesn't smell as bad.

My hurricane lamp hasn't been used for many, many years, mind (not even sure where it is now, or whether I still have it).

Plus, if we're just talking about lamp oil, surely vegetable oils are a better bet...
