Seriously, though, 'What if...?' is a real poisonous direction to take your thinking. Especially if you aren't ready to counter it with "How likely is it...?' Remember, folks: All things are possible but comparatively few things are likely.

Problem is people are generally lousy at gauging the likelihood of bad things happening. A good example are the people terrified of dying in a plane crash when the stats all say they are more likely to die in the car ride to or from the airport. Driving is actually far riskier than flying, yet every day millions get behind the wheels of their cars and drive off with nary a thought about the possibility of an accident.

Hanners and an anthropomorphic Winslow feeding off each other's anxieties could be a really bad non-comedic thing.  I'm calling it now - Momo will take charge of reality checks and do a pretty decent job of keeping the two of them grounded and centered.  She'll reel the lapses in while they're still funny and before any lasting damage can be done.

While AI abduction might be a problem in their universe anyone who grabs Winslow would get Bubbles going Liam Neeson on their asses.

Bubbles: What I have is a very specific set of skills.
Kidnapper: Good l-
(loud crash as Bubbles smashes through the wall)
Kidnapper: What the hell? The door was open.
(Bubbles looks at the wide open door next to where the wall used to be, then looks back at the kidnappers who have sensibly handcuffed themselves to a table and are confessing to the police on speakerphone)

I thought it was unlikely for an alligator to be in Boston...and then I saw this:
Quote
When Walter Ertsinian's 11-year-old daughter saw an alligator in the yard of their Hamilton home, she thought it was a pool toy.

Then the creature moved, and she understandably "freaked out," he said.

The girl had just gotten out of the family's backyard pool when she spotted the 1.5-metre alligator at the side of the house on Tuesday.

Ertsinian was inside, getting ready for his 25th anniversary dinner when he heard his daughter shouting and ran outside.

When he saw the alligator, he was surprised. He did the only thing he could think to do — he called 911.

How the alligator ended up on Ertsinian's property on Webster Road, near Centennial Parkway, is anyone's guess, although Hamilton Animal Services says it is likely an escaped pet.

IY'S BAARYYY!!!

sorry, for some reason minor character alays end up my favorites.~
maybe not favorities, but U always lie them.

Ging baxk a few comics...I was kinda surpsirsed when Winslow higed Hanners. It looks like....she didn't freak out, thoigh she was very uncomfortable? Winslow woild be gar cleaner than a human body, so she could keep it under control; but sill, being higged by a humaoid, would have been..pushing her, I bet. But she did, also, show signs of lesseing the impact of her neuroses.

So that's good! Tjough I was surprised that Winslow would jump to doing The Thing that frwaks Hanners out, so quickle. A bit weird, even f he gauged his cleanliness to be les sproblemtic. Ehhh. Maybe it wil, gove noth soe  latitude to reflect.

Of course, it would be Hamilton.

I kid, Hamilton is actually really pretty and I think the people might be alright.

Damn it Barry!  He certainly needs  better gator confinement strategies.   I hope he has a license.

This is understandable.

Also I think Barry is my favorite character now because of course he'd have a live croc in the back of his pickup.

edit: I just realized I called it a crocodile instead of an alligator and am now sad.

Naturally, it would be Hannelore whose anxieties ignore probability. Still, she's sensible enough to know that, even if she is anxious, she cannot let herself and her friends be prisoners of statistically-unlikely outcomes.

Also naturally, it would be Barry who is the instrument of statistically-unlikely outcomes being slightly more likely.

If your roll enough dice, a sufficient number of times, you'll roll "alligators escape from truck" (esp. in Shadowrun). On the other hand, it's Barry, so this could be a hallucination-alligator.

Well, not exactly. The trucks contained other critters that they had to capture. Another session had Ghost Gators, but those weren't from a truck.

Hmm. Hanners did take umpteen pregnancy tests after a single event of morninc sickness, so her anxieties can defy statistics (at least in the past). I do hope this is just another "two steps forward, one step backward" incident.

Nah, just a freak dm that likes pulling out the obscure nasties. =P In my defense, Ghost Gators were used in several official adventures in the Ork Underground as possible filler-enemy, all I did was upgrade them to SR5 to make them actually dangerous. Same with the Behemoth I used in the truck-session (they still downed it in a single combat-turn thanks to Illusion spells...).

But what if Gators is a nice phrase I need to remember though. :)

I don't understand what the big deal is with the alligators.

Of course...I AM in Florida.  Alligators are just another fixture here...you know, like sign posts or bad drivers from up north.  You know what they are, you recognize them, and you avoid interfacing with them in a manner which could impact you negatively.

So, a gator fell off a truck.  Someone get video.  Otherwise, I got work to do.  Let someone else have the fun wranglin' that critter.

Rather fewer gators in Mass than FL.

At least, one would think.

This series of comics is pretty good, because it irrationally irritates me.  I have a lot of anxiety, but all of my anxiety is because of rational issues (I tell myself), but anxiety for the most part is not rational, so the comical exaggeration really highlights that.  So, again, to reiterate, good comics.

How do synthetics feel about damage to their bodies?

They don't have pain to fear the way organic people do. The repairs are faster. Is it more like the way organics feel when their car is damaged?

Good simile.  The Spookybot arc demonstrated that violation of the mind is far more serious to AIs than violation of the chassis.

Punchbot seems to have too little concern for chassis damage, and Pintsize is always ingesting substances that damage his innards.  Perhaps some analog to pain would be beneficial.  I would like to hear Faye's opinion on that matter, specifically with regards to Punchbot and Pintsize.

On the other hand, Melon and May both seemed very upset about their, er, injuries. Two different types of injury there: dismemberment for Melon, disfigurement for May. May actually seemed to take hers harder, but then Melon seemed basically sanguine about things (with the possible exception of money).
