Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

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.

Talking trash to Honor


"I got your number Harrington!"

"You better not dial it."
