Now, on to the quote of the day! Myrnin. Myrnin, Myrnin, Myrnin.

-----------------------------------


Myrnin bent over the microscope and clucked his tongue. “I am honestly mystified by how you humans get anything done with the primitive equipment at hand. This is useless.” He took the slide off and, before Claire could stop him, removed the glass top and licked the sample.

She fought the urge to gag. He didn’t seem at all bothered. He stood quite still, closing his eyes, and then said, “Hmmm. A bit salty, bitter aftertaste . . . iron . . . hydroxide.” He smiled then, and looked at her as if he was quite proud of himself. “Definitely iron hydroxide. That is a binding agent, is it not?”

“You are insane,” she said. “You can’t go around . . . licking things that come out of a water treatment plant. That’s just . . . unsanitary!”

“Life is unsanitary,” he said. “Death more so, as it turns out."
