If you have the possibility to shape the story,
you also have responsibility.
raptors, zombies, I don't see how it would fit into the topic of the phys story.
You could say, it's something from a different bag. (do you use bags for relocation?)
From the whole RAZOR full name I think only "observation" seems relevant.

Well, I was really being facetious, but then once I said it, I started wondering if there was actually a way they could work it into the story. :D

No, we don't use bags. It's hard to find bags big enough, and the raptors and zombies tend to rip right through them. We tried just buying hem a ticket and putting them on a bus, but they weren't always very cooperative and sometimes ate the other passengers, so we had to abandon that method. Now we usually go with crates; with a little bedding, they feel nice and homey, and only the burliest raptors ever break out of them to wreak havoc. Um, I mean, none of them have every broken out of a crate, or wreaked havoc of any kind. It always goes perfectly smoothly.

You send them by bus with 8 other passengers?
I always thought RAZOR was being very secret.
How to keep a secret when there are 8 people who see where you take them?
(unless being so obviously non-secret makes everyone not notice anything suspicious:
"oh, another raptor in the bus again. Do they make be-a-dinosaur parties here or what?
They are so good at pretending to be a raptor. Cool.")

Now we usually go with crates; with a little bedding, they feel nice and homey, and only the burliest raptors ever break out of them to wreak havoc.
some totally not suspicious guy in a bus wrote:No, don't break the crates!
They are supposed to be re-usable!
You know how expensive they were?

If we didn't have to get new crates all the time,
we wouldn't have to go everywhere by bus!

FTFM.

:) And no, of course you need to put them on a bus with more than eight people, then people are less likely to notice. And sending them at night helps. But then there's the "eating the other passengers" problem...

No, the calendar you mention is not extant, but there's a much more Holy one. No Ponytail, but it does feature some of our favorite characters.

That's why I said "and repeated". 42bin repeated is just a string of 10101010101010101010101010101010101010... ad infinitum, which you can then break up into chunks of 8 to make octonions.

I just nanoblitzed the last few page pope reigns - and covered a good amount of Outside time. Comforting - it means one can possibly blitz through more OTT history per Outside day than new history is created in the same amount of time and still get some sleep.

Yet, I am still undecided. I'll check secondary literature, first.

I did think about making that qualification, but then I didn't. I still like the idea that they'll open up they door and there will be a bunch of waiters serving appetizers.
