I second that, apparently on the food channel there is a show called "Sandra Lee"

Kyle wrote:"Hmm. This has been bugging me for a while, but as furs, what is your opinion of humans like us?"

Volair wrote:Well, do you mean humans in general or Furries in particular? Humans in general are, uh, US so I'd say it's a no-score draw. Although history since the Change Plague is generally a bit more pleasant than your version...

As to Furries, I think the general concensus is that if WE had to deal with no fur and those butt-ugly mutated chimp mugs you got stuck with, we'd be Furries too.



Nolan wrote:"What is the general state of video games in the future? Has the market improved much, or has everything gone to seed?"

Pierce wrote:Well, if by "video games" you mean the console market, everything's pretty much gone. There are still consoles, but owning one is more like owning a pinball machine than a modern entertainment device. You saw Rhonda and Me playing Halo back there. In your day this would be a rough social equivelant to playing skiball or something.

Whatever happened to Umlaut House? I mean, the actual building. DO any of you guys still live in it, or if no, did it get sold to someone you know? Might Pierce and Rhonda possibly end up living there as they go to the U in a few years?


Rick wrote:I believe it's now called "Dr. Lucritzia Sapho's Boarding House for Principled Colegate Women". It wouldn't be fair to call it a Sorority of Lesbian Mad Scientists, but only because they usually have at least one token straight girl.

Pierce will not be attending, obviously. Rhonda might, but the thought of that sends even me under the floorboards. I shant speak of what it does to her other father.

Dear Saundra: (from Shakal)

Your reply to Gregor made me wonder about your time portal device. When it's in use, and an object (such as a furre) passes through, how evenly does the rest of the timeline move with such a transfer. To use a specific example of what I mean, when Rhonda went back into time to try to creep out Jake, and then returned (assuming her trip was 5 minutes) did she return back to her "home" time 5 minutes from departure, or at the same time from whnce she first left? Or if the flow of time is less consistant, is it possible for her to spend 5 minutes in the 'old' time, and return to find that 10 minutes has passed to her five, or only two or three?

Dear Saundra: (from Jarylan via satellitephone)

How many Saundras have ever gathered together in one place? We already have an idea of how many volairs have congregated, and I certaintly am not implying that Saundras might congregate for the same reason. But what kind of thing might bring multiples of, well, you together, and how many have gotten together at a time?

Dear Volair: (Back to Shakal)

When you leave for you... ahem... weekly get togethers, do you tend to leave FROM multiple days (thus making Monday Volair, Tuesday Volair, etc)... or is it something you do before/after the party, thus making it a party you get to live four times right in a row?

Oh, and if I were in your position, I would take it as flattery.

Saundra wrote:You can set a time portal to "tack" so that you come back exactly when you left, but left to its own devices it will move with time currents, causing the same amount of time to elapse on both sides.

Just typing? You don't have a finger-mouse type thing?

...Actually, I think they have those right now. I remember getting an offer about one after purchasing Black and White, back when I couldn't afford to blow a hundred some odd bucks on a pointing device that's really really cool.

I oughtta find out if they still have those.
