One last awkwardsplosion before our heroes blast off into space.

You know Me-Me must be bummed about being grounded.

Real adventure soon, I promise. As soon as I get RD some pages.

LMAO, Mickle!! :D :D
How does on even exist in such a form? Even for Smilans. Seriously :D
Everything needs to be really hard looking like that. The only worse guy was that Smilan with multiple heads with one being down there as his butt... Poor creatures. But I suppose it is all good for them since it is normal to work and look like that :>

There are a number of different smilan races, and many of them are reproductively compatible, but smilans are also prone to mutation... In the genetic lottery, there are winners and loser. But mostly losers...

Jokes aside. Serious question:
How do those multi headed Smilans cope for real? If every head has its own personality and everything, it has to be maddening for the "individual" creature. Even worse if all heads are in charge of the body...

That's a good question. I'm afraid I hadn't actually given that one much thought! I'd imagine there's probably one portion of the brain that contains all that the smilan is, while each face has its own sort of processor for accessing that information(?). That's my ad hoc explanation.

All good. Every time I ask about this sort of thing I usually get a very similar reply so I guess people do not think about it? :D
Not like it is necessary but it begs the question how such creatures live.
Only once I got an answer and that was about WarCraft double-headed ogres. Both heads are so stupid and in a constant argument unless they find something they can agree on like food, sleep or punching something :D
Or the lucky head just knocks the other one out for a while and has free reign, haha.

Ah! Something like a shared memory concept? That is what I was afraid of since shared memory between parallel processes introduces race conditions and we are back to the problem. Hm. I guess they just have a really agreed on plan and somehow vote for what to do. Unlike multiple Smilans, a single Smilan is still a single being no matter how many heads they have so their survival HEAVILY depends on ALL involved.

And no, it is not important or relevant but hey, why not? :D
