Seaman: Day Twenty-Two

Posted by JohnTheGamer (341 posts) -

Apparently the tadpole creatures are formally known as “tadmen.”   I adjust their environment to be at a cool 21 degrees. As I chat with some of the tadmen they begin asking me questions about my health. They know I’m an Aries without me telling them, apparently all the knowledge that Poseidon and Studmuffin knew, is passed along.

One of them tells me that we don’t realize how easy we have it nowadays. He begins to tell me about the ancient Egyptians and how they had no heaters or pharmacies. The manual for the game explains that the Seamen are thought to be the “helpers” to past civilizations. He also tells me that instead of talking to him I should be taking in the harvest, since its fall. He continues on with the Egypt talk, asking if I’m seen the pyramids and if I can even imagine building them.

He is on a bit about how we have had to evolve over time and that nowadays we are too relaxed and have it so easy. He talks about people with glasses; in the past we would’ve been a lion’s lunch. He finishes off with a few minute story about how we invented the greatest tool five of six thousand years ago, language. Later came Pythagoras and logic and many kinds of theories, soon after, mathematics, technology and industry. We started out pretty helpless but we invented these things to rely on, he reminds me to never rely on these too much.

I would say "Okay I'll live without technology starting with this tank's heater" =p

I wear glasses. I guess I would be food for the lions back in the day.

Well he's right. I should be taking in the harvest, not posting here.

Such an insightful young lad...err...tad, ain't he? 
 
It's good to know you've got them talking to you at least, unlike their son-of-a-bitch dad Poseidon.  I think I like these tadmen.  Let's hope they don't go all blood-sucking crazy!
