This would probably mean that after as few as twelve generations, every person descended of 12 generations of British Isles residents (this would have started even before 600 AD) would be descended from Boudicca, and along multiple lines at that! As a story device, that could be quite handy, if any of her line survive at all.
A stone arena that makes Stonehenge look like a tiny plaything by comparison has been discovered underground only a mile away from Stonehenge (through a magic called science).
Moriganna has plans for Stonehenge. And yet, why would she bother with that when this is available? And it’s right there….
Like the guys trying to prevent the use of “autonomous” armed vehicles in warfare (robots). I honestly don’t believe it can be done. I’m far from convinced it is even the right thing to do. Trying to get all nations to do “the right thing” (once you’ve formed an opinion of what the right thing is) with any new technology puts me in mind of an old saying:
“That is all very well, but who is to bell the Cat?”
Æsop. (Sixth century B.C.) Fables.
The Harvard Classics. 1909–14.
Then again, maybe it’s a matter of the turnip or the club.
“Should entire breeds of dogs be banned? One expert says “no.” Dog behavior is more the result of treatment and training than breeding, she believes.
Either issue might be one where Moriganna and Llew would take different viewpoints on.
So there really is a smart drug. I’ll take five dozen bottles, please!
So it turns out large black birds may be the avian kingdom’s answer to tool-users and social learning as the New Caledonian crow may be the only non-human species that seems to have its own cumulative technological culture! I kind of suspected as much when I was writing about Cymri and, to be more fair, Cilgwri.
The European Organization says the universe is dying, producing about only half the energy it was just two billion years ago–that seems pretty unfair considering we just got here!
