Review:
Damien is a stinky little turd. Always getting keyed up.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seventy Seven" from DieselDriver
Review:
It just occurred to me that "Rossum's Universal Robots" wasn't written till the 1920's which explains why the term robot isn't in use yet.

Review of chapter "Chapter Sixty Seven" from DieselDriver
Review:
four wires is possible for an amplified speaker. That way the signal voltage can be smaller and less harmful to whoever is installing it should they make a mistake. There's also the 70 volt pa systems that are or were used in a lot of factories and large office areas back when I worked in such places.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Nine" from DieselDriver
Review:
I am so glad this story is finished. I don't have to wait longer than it takes to click to the next chapter to resolve those pesky cliff hangers. I'm sure that since there's cordite involved that I will get a big bang out of the next one.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Seven" from DieselDriver
Review:
Ok, that lit the old "I got it" light bulb. Alex is Lex. Calling Kal El a "Visitor" is a reminder of the old Steve Reeves lead in narration "a strange visitor from another planet".

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Six" from DieselDriver
Review:
Helllllloooooo Spartan! Might just get him interested in some investigation. I wonder how well he would take to a "woman" training him to actually be sophisticated in his fighting, just in case he runs into another "super" powered individual, to give him that edge needed to win or possibly get defeated.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Four" from DieselDriver
Review:
"could it get any worse" is one of those questions you just don't ask, like "how hard can it be?" "what can possibly go wrong?" etc. That's just inviting Murphy into your life and activities.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifty Three" from DieselDriver
Review:
Research can be so interesting. I had to look up Herman Hollerith as my memory isn't what I'd like it to be. It's funny how one innovation such as Hollerith cards led to Fortran and now that's totally obsolete just like the cards and punch machines. I used to work on computer memory which actually used magnetic cores and wires to store data hence the term "core memory". one card was about 18"X 36" and held 64 bits (not bytes) of memory. Also we had 5 mega byte removable disc hard drives. The platters were the same size as a LP record, about a foot across, and were made of aluminum and coated with ferric oxide with other things to make it retain the data spots. The drives weighed 375 lbs. Now 5 mega bytes isn't even large for a cmos chip. Probably tiny in fact. I'm not up on current data density. I'm wondering when they are going to reach a physical limit that requires new technology to get past.

How Cool! An Ice Gun. Not to be confused with a gun of ice of course.

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty Eight" from DieselDriver
Review:
Rae is going to bend and stretch Barb every which way except loose. This is going to hurt. Barb will be sleeping very very well although some aspirin would probably help. Some of the stronger, habit forming drugs were legal back then too and NOT a good idea.

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty Six" from DieselDriver
Review:
I wondered what the word "Demimonde" meant. Here's what Dictionary.com had to say. Love that site!
noun
1. (especially during the last half of the 19th century) a class of women who have lost their standing in respectable society because of indiscreet behavior or sexual promiscuity.
2. a demimondaine.
3. prostitutes or courtesans in general.
4. a group whose activities are ethically or legally questionable:
a demimonde of investigative journalists writing for the sensationalist tabloids.
5. a group characterized by lack of success or status:
the literary demimonde.

I'm not sure about the status of handguns or regular rifles but shotguns did not require serial numbers until very late in the last century.

I was thinking there would be an analog of the Joker. I'm guessing this is his gang?

"I'm optimistic." She sure has that right. Maybe it's time to contact some of those other "do-gooders" whose names I can't remember and form a justice league?

Review of chapter "Chapter Forty Two" from DieselDriver
Review:
For anyone who wants to know a bit more about the Monkey King (Sun Wukong)...

http://www.crystalhall.org/MonkeyofSorrow.html

Be sure to watch the video at the end too. It's pretty funny.

And for the real (?) Sun Wukong: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Wukong

Rae needs a tail though...
