Eh not really.  That kind soul doesn't do rants.

Ja perhaps so.  Plenty of nursing home patients are querulous sorts, for
understandable reasons.

What we could perhaps work toward next: slider bars to control personality.
We could have multiple sliders that could be set (and perhaps even adjusted)
by reading reactions of patients (maybe.)  Since we are in a setting where
the patients see a friend's corpse being hauled out of that place more often
than the moon is full, we could perhaps have a religiosity or piety sliding
scale.  Start that one over on the right.  Then if the patient never
responds to religious comments, then move it to the left.  We could do the
same with science discoveries and such.  We could have a spike-istic slider.
I could even help write some of the snarky scripts for that one.
