Re: EpDis: The Corps Is Mother, The Corps Is Father

That's how I figure it, too, though it may or may not have been Bester doing the "toughening". I got the impression he didn't serve regularly with any trainee.

And oops, I typed "rate" instead of "rare". LOL

Thank you for addressing the comment of my post, instead of nitpicking my horrible laptop typing.

Another creepy aspect of that: the guy definitely moves after he's spaced. So however long he lived, you know he felt it. Somehow, that's even creepier than just shooting him in the head, to me.
