No, no, no... The range for sting rays & BB guns is very short range
(though BB guns exceed string rays -- but less so in water -- because of the
delivery method John's range is potentially much longer.

God Lee, Damien didn't tell you... Due to publisher funding restrictions,
Damien only had half a million monkeys to assemble the pages -- he authored
the words but the paragraph and page assembly was done under contract. They
had to have a bunch of gamestations pick up the slack. So I am not so sure
that you two may have read the same book. They could have been quite
different books but given enough similar impressions and you could have
manufactured a *belief* that you read the same book. But you did not verify
it. So you may be both be operating in false delusion driven realities.
Sad, very sad, to see fine extropian individuals being driven into such
P.S. sorry for any previous non-content containing posts -- problem due to
trying to do an email and chat at the same time. (Bad bad bad -- I'm too
old for these modern technological systems)...
