"I meant that figuring out how to do something like that for me was several billion times less important than figuring it out for normal humans."

"Oh, yeah, that's also true."

Permalink

"It's a good thing I don't get sick as easily as humans, though, since human medicine would be moot for me." 

Permalink

"Completely? I'd expect a lot of things to carry over - disinfectants, maybe antibiotics if they didn't have weird side effects on you that are worse than for humans - certainly anything surgical would be different but I'd expect the least discrepancy in infectious disease related medicine."

"I mean I don't get sick so it's hard to say. But I work really weirdly." 

Permalink

"I'll take your word for it and hope you do not come down with anything."

Permalink

"I don't think I will. I think if I were going to get sick at all I would have done so at some point when I was little and careening across the countryside eating everything in sight." 

Permalink

"Maybe you can get exotic otherworldly diseases."

Permalink

 

"That's possible. Those seem even less likely to respond to antibiotics," she winced. 

Permalink

"At least any I know about, yeah."

Permalink

 

"Well. No use borrowing trouble. Maybe I can't get space diseases either." 

Permalink

"Let's hope!"

Permalink

"And even if the worst happens probably I'll be fine and the only real problem will be making a summoning circle big enough for me."

"We don't have confirmation on that for local humans, let alone you, but I wish you luck on that." Sigh. "I'm gonna go see how Benjamin Franklin is doing."

Permalink

Benjamin Franklin is going through a stack of newspapers for details of politics. He looks up when Cam comes in. "Hello! Is there anything I can help with?" 

Permalink

"Nope, just checking in! How are you doing?"

Permalink

"Excellent. I think I'm nearly fluent in modern politics." 

Permalink

"And what are your thoughts on modern politics?"

Permalink

Benjamin Franklin provides an insightful and witty analysis of 1928 politics that someone more familiar with 1928 politics and also the writings of Benjamin Franklin might have some hope of actually generating.

"Cool - let me get you something abridged from the future so you'll have a little more data on what trends can push how far how fast -" Cam comes up with a history book for this purpose. "It's obviously written from an even farther future perspective so you'll have some moralizing that will sound weird, but should be serviceable."

Permalink

Ben Franklin accepts it. "I suppose getting used to the morals of the future sooner rather than later will save some time." 

Permalink

"It will at that. You have a jump on avoiding farmed meat!"

Permalink

He wrinkles his nose. "Factory farming animals is a good thing to skip." 

Permalink

"The debate wasn't in full swing till I was already eating demonic meat all the time for sheer convenience, so I've never gotten worked up about it, but it's certainly something we might as well avoid when it's this easy."

Permalink

"I'd much rather know the contents of my sandwich had never been marinating in its own manure."
