    Is it my imagination, or are there very few (if any) females in this community?

    @ckcsmum

    How could you tell, with those robes?

    But it’s obvious that this situation has multifarious ramifications not immediately evident to the unassisted optic.

    (There’s more here than meets the eye) ;)

    I tried. I even took a mulligan. And yes, I opened with that.

    As Arlo said, “I’m not tired. Or proud.”

    You can’t get anything you want,
    At Reptilians’ Restaurant



    I think these guys city was blown up with specific mutagen bombs. Because the mutagen was fresh and unadulterated, almost everyone mutated to similar critters. As the mutagen spread out, and different formulations escaped, different mutations happened. Maybe Apex®, (remember Apex?) wanted varies mutations, because one type mutation caused cohesion in the targeted society. Then, after their city was flattened, they used the broken glass, steel and concrete to build a barricade, or possibly a maze, around a domed stadium, that survived the demolition because of the theoretical structural strength and integrity of a Bucky Ball.

    Or maybe the giant egg they were flying through space collapsed the city around it, leaving shards of glass, steel beams, concrete and eggshells as sort of a protective barrier.

    When the server gets there, maybe Holly can talk with him / her on his / her level over their shared occupation as waiters / waitresses.

    If it’s beans perhaps our Endtowners will go ballistic, or maybe we are about to find out where all the tamales went.
    When they were shooting the first Planet of the Apes movie in 1968, an unusual thing happened.
    The actors who played the simian residents of the world began to segregate themselves unconsciously between shots, and meal breaks. Orangutans with Orangutangs, Gorillas with Gorillas, and so on. Ultimately these actors were all human underneath the makeup and costumes, and would leave the set on the same bus together, sans costumes.
    Ultimately clothes make the man, err ape…. Err, Monitor Lizard.
    Like that Bugs Bunny short, where Bugs and Elmer were chasing each other through a rain of different hats, and their personalities would change with each change of headgear.
    Ultimately, we are a conditioned species, driven by the symbolism, of uniforms and hats, and assumptions.
    Would you trust a cop dressed as a janitor?
    Would you trust janitor dressed as a cop?
    This conditioning, is something of a problem.
    If you saw someone dressed as a doctor or an authority figure, but really wasn’t. You would not know if they really were the profession they were representing or some crazed lunatic, like a Congressman.
    We make conscious and unconscious assumptions based on what we primarily see. I get no shortage of wrong assumptions based on my appearance, I’m used to it.
    And sometimes I enjoy it, especially when someone makes the wrong assumption, and after talking to me for a few minutes finds out you cannot judge a book by it’s cover.
    I like blowing their minds!
    It’s like far out maaannn!

    Probably beans.

    or… hmmm, reptilian culture that treats mammals and potentially also birds as second class citizens?

    Why do I think they’re gonna get things with eggs and milk (here’s hoping not also meat).

    They could be… CANNIBALS! Wait, are you a cannibal if you’re a mutant human who looks like a lizard who is eating a mutant human who looks like a cat? You know what, a musical number would help me figure this answer out.

    I can tell who the longtime readers are by the responses I read. Beans for the old timers, eggs and milk for the more recent readers. This could be fun.
    How about Aaron Marx’s comment “What? You’re all vegans?”
    (Or something like that.)

    @Robert Nowall

    Hmmm…I’m guessing the Topsiders, the people who are trying to exterminate all mutants. Still could be wrong.

    I find it curious that when they met what appeared to be the colony’s leadership there was no mention of a war or tactical/strategic information. If they are fighting Topsiders, they would be wise to pump Jim and Sarah for information. They could know things that are much more valuable than than anything they have on their person.

    I’ve got it!!! The colony is made up of the employees of a modern corporation! That would explain why the underlings (like the leader of the guards) is relatively on the ball while the ones on top (who probably have their MBAs) are focused on minor financial points and are clueless about the big picture.
