The Great War of 1913-1917 was truly a turning-point for mankind, drawing together the modern nations when they were at the brink of global war to jointly defend against the Martian invaders. The technological, social and political upheavals that followed were at times painful and ugly, but were also the seeds of the world we live in today.

I hate to see the 'knockout blow'. The border between hitting the head to induce unconsciousness and hitting the head to induce death is really small. This video by National Geographic shows the results of a boxer's 'one-punch knockout':

All that brain deformation tears neurons apart, causing such heavy trauma that the brain must shut down or die.
"In the clearing stands a boxer, And a fighter by his trade. And he carries the reminders. Of ev'ry glove that laid him down. And cut him till he cried out."
Those reminders are also in his brain structure.

Why does everyone else's kids seem to get real plates and utensils, while our kids eat off of plastic with a (shudder) spork? Are we afraid that our kids will take metal utensils and turn them into shivs in metalshop class? Because metalshop was cut out of the curriculum years ago.

Dr. Doom! I don't know if he finished his doctorate, after that terrible accident that left him scarred.
Dr. Frankenstein does have a MD or PhD, I think. He may be trusted with your life, since he can restore life to your dead body. On the other hand, he may put someone else's brain into it . . .

I am overwhelmed. I would not have been so gracious for the first gift as this boy, who apparently must glue his shoes to repair them as a normal part of his life. It makes you want to start a Kickstarter for him to raise a scholarship or something.

Just out of college, I had a job netting salmon at Bonneville Dam. One guy sat on top of a ladder watching the fish pass through the fish ladder. He had a button to press that would direct salmon into a chute that ended in a 6' x 6' tub. The rest of us would dip net the fish into a small dumpster filled with water and a fish anesthetic. The fish were knocked out, and then transferred to a tank truck of water. When the tank was full of fish, the truck would drive to a fish hatchery where the fish would 'ripen' before their eggs and milt were harvested. The whole process was probably quite stressful for the fish. I imagine this is a nicer alternative.

If it helps, 'doki doki' is an onomatopoeia for a beating heart, and is used as a synonym for becoming excited. It is also used in the sense of 'my heart beats faster for you'.
