Ah good-o ;) Not used to people being induced to vomit in my LJ, wasn't sure it was a good thing.

Fair enough. Shows you must be doing something right, though, I would say.

Do you know the Alan Moore comic Halo Jones? I think it is about fifteen years out now, and features a particularly graphic rat war ie military campaign using robot rats.

Personally I think this is a cop out and they should just make better robots. Rats have evolved to be good at being rats not at being good at most of the things we would want them to do. Is
the rat going to be able to give someone oxygen once it has found them under earthquake rubble?
