Re: EpDis: Believers

I've wondered about how accident-prone they might be (or not be), too. Perhaps they just live in a really boring world, where only robots deal with sharp things, or do anything remotely interesting.

Perhaps their species is a lot tougher than ours, and don't feel that saving life is the highest goal for society, but breeding a stronger child is.

I bet the "rich" ones can get quiet "surgery", when they need it. I'm sure that much never changes.
