A reminder (if one was needed) that, if Claire an Clinton lack chill, they are amateurs compared to Hannelore in this field!

Wait, why is Dora shouting what I'm assuming is an abort code? Most importantly who is she shouting it to? The obvious answer is Station but the post-human sci-fi thinker in me can't help but wonder whether it's at Hannelore. At what point was she hypnotically (or maybe cybernetically) programmed with a shutdown code? What else did Station put in Hanners' head when he put in the implant 'phone?

'Cantilever' was the passphrase that Hannelore put in the newsletter so Dora could prove that she read it.

I really hope that Hanners didn't just nail her foot to the floor after she dropped the knife...

Also: nukes evil! Bad Hanners! No murdering your friends!

Do you also happen to have the link for when Future Hannelore gives the order (to destroy civilization, I assume) over the protestations of some minion dude? Thanks in advance.

I must confess I don't really get the joke. How and why do we go from "there is a typo in the newsletter" to "let's nuke the area"?

The joke is a comical exaggeration of how Hannelore feels about making mistakes that she'd thought she could avoid making. She's so horrified, her first reaction is to end it all (and go out with a rather impressive, literal bang) rather than face the realisation. I think that's all there is to the joke.

EDIT: YMMV whether the joke is "Hannelore sure overreacts here", or whether Hanners herself is making a joke. If it's the latter, it sure seems like a dangerous way to joke around, if Station doesn't catch on...

Hanners has a long history of defaulting to mass murder to hide her mistakes.

Or at least freaking out and briefly wondering if this is a viable course of action.

Now I am waiting to see where that knife landed.  I hope the service ferret wasn't hurt.

There's also the slightly more justified spider extermination via orbital bombardment.

Unless the spider is right up in my personal space, I try to leave them alone.  Better a spider I can see on the ceiling, then the other bugs they would have eaten where I cannot see them.

So far she hasn't killed anyone (that we know of).

Come on, you all.
Am I the only person in this forum excited to play the new Weaver race[1] from that Fools Gold campaign?

[1]they're spiderfolk that look like spiderfolk (glares at Ettercap design).
