“We got a little nervous about Lab J. That thing that got loose? It chewed up the electric fence and a Saab before going back. Here at the Facility, though, we are NOT supposed to pry. So Bill and I walked out there and we saw this other creature. It played us a tape of their security guard saying everything was fine. It seemed to be doing his rounds. That’s good enough–we don’t need to worry, right?”
I happen to think the first one of these, with the watch on the arm counting arrows, is scarier than the second. I’m interested to know whether people agree or disagree. If you feel strongly, PM me and tell me “watch” or “no watch” and why.
