Observations

1. Pure Evil has strong teratogenic effects, with a tendency to produce asymmetry.

2. These effects vary widely, without a clear progression along a phenotypic path.

3. At higher doses, there can be inclusions of tissue from other species (kingdoms? phyla? we have yet to identify that purple wiggly stuff in specimen #7).

Notes

1. Specimen #9. This lump of discolored stuffing was miscarried at 2 months.

2. At the dosage of 1000ppm, pregnancy appeared to be reabsorbed before the 2 month mark. Administration of Pure Evil at the same dosage continued. By the 3 month mark, subject developed dental hypertrophy, ocular luminescence, and extreme behavioral changes. At 3 months 2 weeks, subject chewed through the steel bars of its cage, after which it killed and partially consumed two graduate students. Subject was then euthanized with a sustained burst of automatic weapons fire.

Conclusions

Pure Evil's teratogenic's effects at even low dosages indicate that it should be treated as an extremely hazardous material and every effort should be made to prevent its entering the water table and the food chain. While it has the potential at higher doses to be used in the development of weaponized life-forms, the difficulty of safely disposing of their bodies, and the risks of environmental contamination in the event of escape, strongly skew the cost-benefit analysis in the direction of Holy Crap Don't Use This Stuff.

A sample of Pure Evil was obtained from the ruins o f an exploded toaster in the south of England.2. Pure Evil was administered, via drinking water, to pregnant laboratory teddy bears for the duration of their pregnancy (4 months).3. Dosage varied from 0 parts per million (ppm) to 1000ppm, titrating upwards by steps of 100pm. 4. Offspring were euthanized and mounted for display.Back to ConDor 17 part 4: Saturday Evening (27-Feb-2010)Next: Christian B. McGuire at the sandwich shop.
