How many warmongers are on the Skin Horse Secret Santa list?
Well… Unity allegedly has Mell’s brain, if that counts.
Well, it wasn’t like Mell used it much…
Mell’s a lawyer. She used her brain plenty. She just didn’t bother overthinking situations that could be resolved with violence. Which was most of them.
She doesn’t have Mell’s brain! She was based on tissue samples of Mell that Helen had been selling to the government
Yeah, she has a CLONE of Mell’s brain. Important difference.
Ohhhh… so that’s how they saved Hitler’s brain. Always wondered how they fixed the gunshot wound.
Oh, please let Mell be one of them!
She is a MAD SCIENTIST and we need to STOP enabling her by assisting in denial of this fact!
She’s not mad. She merely has a hard time thinking about real world consequences. I’d rate her as being at about the Sheldon Cooper level of sanity. ^_^
My analogy would be Leonard of Quirm, personally.
Also, if we’re wrong, and she is Mad, then her denial of the fact is basically the only thing stopping her from actually building these things and using them to SHOW US ALL!
Sheldon Cooper is a certified mad scientist. He has a PhD in theoretical physics, and Asperger’s syndrome.
Also, he lives in a student’s dormitory with an experimental physicist for some reason, which is insane. And neither has any picklocks, which, considering where they teach, is indicative of mental impairment.
As Sheldon says, he isn’t crazy, his mother had him tested. Though there are times that I think he should be re-tested.
They don’t live in a dorm, they have an apartment, at which they accidentally blew up the elevator. The lack of lockpicking skill is an interesting indicator of a lack of a certain aspect of geekiness.
The question is: what exactly did she have him tested for? Rabies? Syphilis? Raging Dick Mouth Disease?
Don’t be absurd. Sane scientists decorate with deuterium all the time.
Getting it to fuse without warping space and time is the real trick.
She’s certainly a scientist. But I think she seems fairly sane as far as scientists in general go. Don’t you know what it takes to become a scientist in the first place?
I’ll buy that she’s a mad scientist when she stops justifying her choices, and starts wanting to show them all.
Only some mad scientists behave that way. Remember at the convention in Narbonic we briefly met a good mad scientist, and there’s no reason there can’t be more categories – especially when you include those who haven’t yet snapped.
Ah Virginia. Still the most adorably disturbed scientist in comics today, Helen being retired. Never change.
So, a picture frame made twinkly through cold fusion? Now I gotta say that’s pretty cool, if radioactive.
So what? People used to use Radon for glow-in-the-dark toothpaste.
I was interpreting it more in the Sagan-esque “everything is star stuff” sense.
It shouldn’t be outside the realm of semi-sane science to calculate which isotopes formed purely from adding deuterium without ever adding lone nucleons.
Kin of implies that defense researchers cracked cold fusion so long ago they’ve forgotten it’s supposed to be a secret.
“Never underestimate the power of radioactivity to brighten your day.” Please note, that the original quote, attributed to Hans Geiger, was: “Radioactivity will always brighten your day – you can count on it!”
A gift to treasure for the rest of your life – and depending on the level of radiation, may be shorter than you think.
