JFK was born post-POD, he might not have Addison's disease ITTL.
Classical case of that is not applicable here, surely. Although it mostly is seen as that you are bad at applying something out of your professional life to your personal life, not the other way around...The men around the table just stared at her. They all had wives and girlfriends. How was it possible that they wouldn’t know these things? The information was all there in Sigi’s file.
Unfortunately for Jack, he knows that the disturbing silence emanating from the Continent indicates that a certain rotary air impeller is about to encounter a safari park sized manure heap. While good for business, the physical risks could be high. Something the Senior Partners might not understand.While it seemed like the whole world was focused on events in Outer Space, Jack found himself with far more earthly concerns. Like what deviltry his clients were up too. Many of them were like children, when things got quiet, that was when you started to worry. Right now, things were quiet out of Continental Europe. That meant that about a dozen of Jack’s clients, many of them high-profile were keeping incredibly quiet.
Kat is a noble of THE Old School. The ones who earned their titles by being extremely loyal and bloody efficient (literally) in dealing with... problems. And the ones who are practically indistinguishable from criminals. Usually because they are the ones making the laws.The Senior Partners didn’t really understand that despite her title and close proximity to the Kaiser, Kat was possibly the most successful career criminal that Jack had ever known and that was saying something.
Can Jack sack this idiot? Or is his daddy or mummy related to/friends with the Senior Partners.“Your brother called” The Associate said.
“Yes” Jack replied, “Which one?”
“I forgot to ask.”
I believe the thought 'God give me strength!!' applies here, immediately followed by Berg (hopefully politely) asking "Did ANY of you bother to READ her file? Or did you just skip over that part?"Today, Berg found herself pointing that out again because the equipment that was monitoring Sigi had picked up a few anomalies.
“Until we have further information, we can assume that this is normal” Berg said as one of her colleagues pointed out that Sigi’s body temperature had suddenly changed as well as slight changes in her heart rate and respiration.
“How can you just assume that?” The colleague asked, “A sick member of this crew is a serious matter, what if this is contagious?”
Berg did her best to hide her annoyance, these men really did need to get out more.
“The personal cycles of women are not contagious” Berg replied, “Though I think it would be rather entertaining if they were.”
The men around the table just stared at her. They all had wives and girlfriends. How was it possible that they wouldn’t know these things? The information was all there in Sigi’s file.
The one thing that TTL Ireland probably doesn't have to fear is Charlie as Taoseach. Ulster is now moving steadily into industrial decline and will be dragging the whole islands politics leftward. Nationalism has nothing left to deliver and I never yet met an Ulsterman, Catholic or Protestant, Unionist or Nationalist that didn't privately if not publicly loathe Haughey and see him as a gombeen man.As always, our minds turn to the Kennedy's
Seriously though, nice update. Do question the entirety of my nations politics now in this world, mainly ones where the evil bastards are still a thing, sorry, Fianna Fail, and in particular just what exactly the shit bond villain who ruled this land during the 80's and was getting his start at the time is up to, but I long ago learned not to peer too deeply.
Also Berg's remark was funny, if you can't laugh about menstruation, than you need to get more used to the topic.
At least there probably wasn't a 'turd in the cabin' incident ITTL's moon mission as happened to OTL's Apollo 10 dress rehearsal mission to the moon. Apparently the Apollo 10 LM (with turd onboard) is still in its solar orbit and has been located with a high level of confidence - https://www.popularmechanics.com/space/a27912679/long-lost-lunar-module-found/.Does make you wonder if ESA's thought about it and made pads and tampons that would work in zero gravity.
I hope so, although they, as did OTL space agencies, forgot to include the necessary plumbing in the early suits, only rectifying the flaw after the crew resorted to the obvious solution.Does make you wonder if ESA's thought about it and made pads and tampons that would work in zero gravity.
As far as I know there haven't really been maps made for TTL. It could be that someone else does know of one somewhere, but we'd have to wait for someone to post/link it.I am wondering if there are any maps of how the world looks in this timeline?
