The Heinzerator project, part 6
Now, DK glues (goops, that is) the BLACK super-sized-valve lid onto the BOTTOM of the gizmo. And then screws the WHITE Costco milk jug lid onto the top where the Minute Maid threads reside. She should get residuals for product placements, like in the movies, she says.
In other news, DK was starting to think about other hobbies, as her Shrimporium has been DEAD BORING the past month, all automated and all. That is, until this week, when a few good dramas unfolded!
First, she kept staring at the broke-black tank and all its many, many juvies, wondering why those dudes are taking so long to grow. She opened up two more feeding stations in that tank and voila, she needed to double feeds in there - they were not getting enough to eat as there are now so many of them. She's having to re-adjust all her feed ratios now that most tanks are pulling into production.
Second, her Mermaid tank tried to crash on her. One of the injection solutions for her secret Mermaid cocktail seems to be time-sensitive and will precipitate out of solution after about a month. Normally, this is not an issue as she makes a bit each week and fills the vat. But recently, as y'all recall, she went on vacay for... oh... about a month... and made her an extra large batch of the stuff for the duration. She noticed the crystals in the vat and by the time she re-did the vat the Mermaids were a bit uhappy, a few VBD in there (VBD is DK's slang for voted by death, meaning they display their supreme unhappiness in a kamikazi mannner). Once she had the new juice in the system, the problems abated immediately and they are back to their immoral, partying ways in there, dancing up on the plateau and all.
Yes, things come in thirds, it seems. Well, let's just say DK had a BIG OL' GRIN on her face yesterday when she unequivocally demonstrated proof of concept in one of her experimental breeding tanks in her F2s. She won't say more until she gets them grown, hoping she doesn't manage to crash a tank before then! But she is super, super excited at what she made!
OK. Carry on.
