I was just going by the paragraph description about humans expanding throughout the galaxy, and stumbling upon something "bad" (or, assumed bad, by the description given).

And my 15 year old recollection of Halo 1 and 2, Humans uncovered the Flood (alien race) unintentionally releasing them to rampage across the universe again. Flood = Zerg, basically. Starcraft, Halo, all share similar elements. Though some details may be different, the idea that Humanity mistakenly uncovers or comes into contact with something that others who had been there before us would have preferred stayed hidden or left alone.


Yep, that's about how it starts.

I know Pride & Prejudice & Zombies was a bit of a mediocre listen.

Yeah, I took out Spot the Dog on Audible and had a similar problem. To be honest, I really felt something was missing.

Were you suppose to locate the dog like a "Where's Waldo?" book? That probably doesn't translate well to Audible format.

Hey, remember how the only way to save our kids from being shot up was to arm teachers? (Or to teach them CPR?) Well, strike two on that theory: A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School chemistry teacher, Sean Simpson (who has a license to carry concealed), left his loaded weapon in a public restroom and a homeless dude found it and fired. According to the police report he returned to the Deerfield Beach Pier restroom when he heard the gunshot and wrestled it away afterwards. If he were armed with a second pistol this confrontation would have never happened. Or if restroom attendants were armed, of course.

According to the Miami Herald, Simpson said after the Stoneman Douglas shooting that he would be willing to carry a gun on campus if it were allowed. Good to know these are the responsible people volunteering to protect people. And yes, that school this guy teaches at should sound familiar.

Report of Tiger Running Amok in Manhattan Turns Out to Be Raccoon.Would love to hear the tapes of that call, but it probably wouldn't be nearly as amusing as I imagined it anyway.

Really we should just hide guns inside some of the other guns at random, get to the problem at its source.

Not everyone has seen a tiger or a racoon. Easy mistaking the two.

Our vertical leap is beyond all measurement.

I assumed you were referencing the randomly placed Adult Swim Mooninite Signs that caused bomb scares years ago.

It's possible that those people only knew of raccoons because GotG's Rocket and figured that a Trash Panda was as deadly as a Tiger?

I am guessing that those city folk don't know what any real animal looks like in the wild. I just had a conversation with some people from Germany and Serbia over dinner and drinks the other day and they were kind of awe struck by how much nature our West Michigan city had all around.

I'm one of those city folk, but I'm relatively sure a tiger looks like a tiger whether they're in or out of a zoo. At least I hope so. Crocodiles freak me the hell out so I'm hoping they don't look different freely running around the streets.

Biggest issue. ABC had some 25 minute "special report" on the bombing and my DVR didn't record all of the episode of Agents of SHIELD.

Apparently people have shifted from eating tide pods, to snorting condoms, to now driving off cliffs in California. Not sure what's up with those drivers in CA the past couple weeks. I keep seeing news articles about a new one every few days.

At least one of those appears to have been murder-suicide. I can think of easier ways to commit suicide, but I suppose if your goal is to kill your whole family, driving the SUV off a cliff seems rude, but efficient.
