    Jim plus a sub-set of dittos might be a thing, as they have demonstrated a mental connection/communicative ability. Such would help with his “reading” the fears/weaknesses of our heroes.

    Regarding Jim and the poison gas, as previously speculated, it seems to have been more a simple displacement/asphyxiation gas rather than a true toxic/war gas, so would be more iffy a killer. On the other hand, since we’re talking about the cruel mechinations of Our Author, could it have been May Lou? Or the Boy from Scranton? Tune in Wensday (and likely NOT get the direct answer to these and other questions, in the next exciting episode)

    Okay, so it is more likely a simple displacement gas. Any actual war gas is just too toxic, and even most incidentally poisonous gases tend to be nasty enough that even the lizard people wouldn’t be that casual about it.

    I just realized that it may not be so much a toxic gas, considering that it is being used adjacent to living spaces, but a simple displacement gas, perhaps even sented to warn of its use. Enough volume of CO2 or an inert like Argon is still lethal.

    As a widower, just looking is something you can’t ever have done enough.

    Bringing up the woman hits man aspect is, ultimately, a distraction tactic to pull the conversation away from the vast majority of man hits woman violence. Nabuq’ seems to be a troll for Outrage Politics, his various posts might as well be cutting and pasting various talking points from the Furious Fringe.

    Bruno- I’m not familiar with the study and would need more/better to draw anything from it. However, “starting it” leaves the act out of any context, and is then being used as a rationale for any subsequent escalation of violence by the man. Certainly, the final body count shows that women, regardless as tho who started it, are the overwhelming losers, so men, by and large, are hardly the ultimate victim here.

    Nabuq’- The saddest things about your post is that you likely believe it. But it smells like it came right out of the crackpot “men’s rights” propaganda play book. Not to say that woman on man domestic violence doesn’t happen, but the exaggerated emphasis is used to obscure or excuse the overwhelming majority (likely more than 80%) of man on woman domestic violence.

    I’m wondering if the history of this reality includes a long period of underground shelters/sanctuaries going on to substantial civil defense structures well before the War? Post war, Amesworth projectors could make new excavations easily enough, but infrastructure takes time.

    As the story has developed, I wonder if the Topsiders are not as cohesive as we might think? All the early one had mutts and transporters and plenty of them, but Jim and Sarah’s crowd have oodles of those big drones (instead?) But manufacturing may not equate to population needs. Or maybe a ruthless ideology? (re Sarah as resource liability) I wonder about the suits, as the Topsiders have fairly high level nanotech and the suits seem to be able take care of business fairly well, yet they are surprisingly vulnerable. An oversight or deliberate feature?
