Re: The Last Ship - Discussion Thread (spoilers possible)

I was alluding to the point that the book was being written just as the "Gay Flu" was becoming publicly recognized or just before.

Both notions indicate two entirely different books.

1. AIDS is going to kill us all.
2. This is fiction, nothing like GRID, which I have never heard of & probably doesn't exist yet, could just rear up wipe out the species, I'm writing fiction people, not prophecy!

Well, that's quite different.

Were they at least trying to find a cure for radiation?

They were trying to find a couple who maintained their fertility and settled in the Antarctic research station to repopulate Earth

Adam and Eve building a vast society doesn't work without a lot of incest.

Re: The Last Ship - Discussion Thread (spoilers possible)

It is funny you mention that. I am in a place right now whose society is struggling hugely with that very issue. The power and land and wealth get diffused if the tribe to tribe bonds are not practiced, and there are laws dictating who can marry who with which consequence. In addition, the potentials within the possible gene pool are dwindling and/or already exhibiting aberrations. It will not be easy to solve this set of issues and medical consequences.

"Last Ship", indeed.

If you can't open a Disneyland park, have you considered declaring war on Australia?

So we are clear, here, I am an American Ex-pat teaching here. Believe me, what they have put up here certainly rivals Disneyland ,and Beyond. For what it is worth.
