BA: I once heard a joke in church that people who live on fault lines shouldn't build glass cathedrals. It seems that the fault line bombardment at China Lake is like a bunch of naughty boys trying to test the limits of endurance. What happens if it goes "Snap"? Naughty children will have to take their medicine. They won't like the way it tastes, but they will admit that they needed it!
Right over my head!! However, medicine was part of the protocol. Time to take your medicine. I remember those words. Well, the medicine, I'm sure wasn't medicine at all. However, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down is what I'd hear.
Refusal was met with prying my jaw open; sometimes I wonder if I was addicted to heroin or cocaine because I do remember times when I am lying on steel beds shaking, etc. as if I was going through withdrawal and then it would be said, "see what happens when you don't take your medicine?" Having to wear long sleeves when at home and going to school to cover the track marks. Running out of veins. Seeing the tube. Needles!!
Now are you going to take your medicine or are you going to lay there and suffer?
China Lake is the development and testing site of technology and just as you need lab rats to test drugs, etc., you need humans to test technology when you desire to use it against them.
On a mountain??? China doll!! You're our little china doll!!
Landing in the dark of night. Guarded security gates. Dead of night. Desolate areas most of the time.
