A vivid view of things

It's good to see VIVID back after a lull.

Anyone who agreed with, disagreed with, or otherwise reacted to my Soul searching posts (17th and 27th September) may be interested in readin Animals and us: an off-planet view of a species in denial.

We know that the alien will quickly discover what we are doing; and, assuming a sensitive disposition, will likely reel in dismay at the kinds of things that go on to assess how much of these various substances must be injected, smothered, rubbed or otherwise forced into the flesh, eyes and organs of animals to make them blind, paralysed, crippled or dead, and thereby to enable us to rate the substances as toxic or safe.
