googol counter —n.

A googol counter measures anger in angsts. It emits a corresponding high-pitch shrill. Like an angry banshee.




Alfred tells Alison about replacing Honor's arm


"You did what Alfred? You replaced Honor's arm with a hydraulic version?"

"It's a little more advanced than that Alley."

"You attached a high-tech digitally-controlled hydraulic arm to a nuclear reactor?", she says again more annoyed. "Don't you think you should have consulted with her mother first?"

"What's the big deal honey?"

"Alfred, remember that little gift Uncle Jacques designed for Honor when she was 13? The googol counter? It measures the level of anger in humans when you hold it. Even Meyerdahl B mods can't peg the meter. Exceeding the googol limit is rare Alfred. And Honor does it just standing near the damn thing! She utilized it to get the last word with us. You were always screaming at her at that dreadful age of 13 for Meyerdahl teens, 'Honor! Turn that damn thing off or step away from it!'"

"I know, honey, but I lived with the same anger."

"But you didn't have a bionic arm."

He attached digitally-controlled digits.

Thanks for the reminder.

Remember the idiot down on Blackbird who somehow obtained Honor's ten digits and called her up on the phone? He then remotely accessed the functions of her hydraulic arm. It almost smashed his head in when the security system realized it was a virus. Honor forwarded the call at the very last moment.

Out of the mouth of babes
A 5-yr-old's book report in class

"Mrs. Bright, did you know that Treecats have opposable thumbs like humans?"

"I did know that honey. And do you know what that enables them to do?"

"Yes mam! It enables them to thumb a ride on the shoulders of their two-legs!"

" :o "

Mutant Ninja Cat
The exploits of Raoul and Rafael

Needing a Treecat with special cat skills to travel to the Catskills on Earth, they select Rafael, the Treecat who studied with Master Splinter.

Upon meeting an angry Grizzly, Rafael begins to use sign language.

<I am the Michaelangelo of Kung Fu and I know the Vulcan mind-meld. I can detect your crease.>


The grizzly bear runs. All that darn signing made him think the hideous six-limbed beast was rabid.

MA Memoirs

"We cannot attack the MBS until we figure out the cycle!"

"The cycle of the resonance zone?"

"No you idiot! Harrington's cycle! You sure you're an Alpha? Every battle she was in she was on her cycle. Tourville was the only officer who bested her because she was off her cycle. But their rematch was right in the middle of a big one!"

"Why do we fear her so much. She is no better than we are!"

"Yes she is. She is an Alpha and a Beta. Meyerdahl-B."

After BOM. Beth is fascinated by the technology.

Guess who's coming to dinner

"You cannot bring a suitor from Hades to dinner! This is Grayson! I am a Key for Chrissakes!"

"Now you see why his name is Dicey."
