I'm going to invent some insect spray named "Bug Fighter" now.

Excuse: I'm sick (cough, cough), so I can't come to the Sharing meeting tonight!

Now I'm thinking about it and I can't figure out why the Yeerks went through the trouble of setting up The Sharing as a deception. If they just came out and said, "Wanna be part of the alien Illuminati? You lose control of your life, but we'll pay for your health care, you get to overthrow the rich people, be part of this huge patriotic army, and there's a small chance you'll get to vicariously be a rich jackass, and you don't have to work hard ever again..." ....like seriously, countless people would agree to that in a hot minute. This would not be a small number. Especially if they were depressed or anxious or addicted to something.

With the caveat that they'd probably demand an agreement with the Yeerks that they'd continue to produce TV. : P

Funny story yesterday:

I was working and someone brought in cinnamon buns from Taco Bell yesterday. I actually never had cinnamon buns before because I generally don't eat a lot of sweets. However, I ate them for the first time... AND THEY WERE AMAZING!  ;D

And my mouth went crazy! I felt like Ax! "Cinnamon bunz"

I couldn't help but think about Animorphs when I ate those buns! Good times man!

Marco: Oh, it's just a trash can. Chill out.
BAM! BAM! BAM!
Marco: Okay, so it's four trash cans.
Jake: Get off the sidewalk, you lunatic!
Marco: (yanks wheel right, bumps the sidewalk, grazes a parked car)
BAM! BAM! BAM!
Jake: Do you hate trash cans? Is that your problem? Do you just HATE TRASH CANS?!!

XD First time I ate one, it was indeed delicious, but my first thought was, "So I'm a cinnamon roll eating a cinnamon roll. All we need now is a third one eating---*Is shot before she can say anything bad* <___<;;;;

Are Cinnabons pretty much everywhere in the U.S.?  I can't even remember, only one I've ever seen here is at the airport.

I wouldn't say "everywhere."  They're in quite a few places if you know where to look, but you do have to look.

Can I just take a moment to appreciate that Animorphs considered its very young readers intelligent enough to "get" politics? I can't remember a show or book before this that ever made it more complicated than "good king" and "bad king" for the same age group, beyond maybe high fantasy novels for slightly older kids.

One thing I would really like to see is a count of how many times the word "thermal" shows up in the series
Its in there a dozen plus times in every book.

Totally random thought : Andalite, injuries and morphing power.

There's something unclear about how the metamorphosis could heal a wound. They say many times that the morphing power cure every physical problem not related to DNA.
We have seen various Andalites with permanent disabilities, a lost stalk eye and others, mostly suffered in battle : captain prince Asculan from #54, or prince Galuit from #18, Mertil from #40
But Mertil is the only to be defined "vecol", and it's clearly stated that he cannot heal his injuries because he has an allergy to morphing technology.
And the others? How can there be disabilities in the andalite military if the power of metamorphosis heals every wound?

We should assume that a lot of andalites are allergic to morphing power, and they are all in the most important positions, but it looks really unlikely, even because the allergy is never mentioned before book 40.

And obviously Elfangor and his lethal injury...but probably this is explained in Andalite chronicles, I don't remember.
