"...Before we do, perhaps our Hygiene Officer should disinfect them, as is their duty. Is this acceptable, Team Leader?"

I come to my senses and stop relieving myself. My predecessor's memories told me that he had heard (perhaps faultily) that sometimes new clones are a little loopy after being born. I suppose I will have to live with the consequences (though it was worth it to get on that arrogant doorman's nerves).

I think about making a witty quip, such as "I guess I'm the winner of this pissing match", then think better of it.

I give Bone-R a friendly clap on the back without washing my hands as I walk by. "Sorry about that, friend! Do disinfect that, will you?"

I also grab a chit from Sou-R-LAD's hand without washing my hands.

Dr, if you would like to contest this, let me know and I'll roll some dice. You're going to have your work cut out for you, though.

I pick up my chit from the puddle and present it to the intercom. My smile is starting to show signs of fatigue.

Oops, I misunderstood. If Sou-R-LAD dropped the chits, I grab one from the ground like everyone else, and do not try to grab the one from his hand.

"...You, and only you, have been cleared to enter."

The shutter slides upwards.

"Now."

All of what little color was left in my face drained, I pull from another hip holster a pair of industrial grade sanitary gloves. I spray the token with disinfectant so thoroughly that it's possible it may melt. Then I pick it up as if it may explode. Then I bring it to the camera.

If anthropologists were around, they would probably be sketching me, because I believe I may have invented three or four previously unseen methods of showing nonverbal disgust.

Alright, question for all the players: Does anyone intend to muck this farce up further, or do you all intend to behave and march inside in order? PM me if you want to get up to any shenanigans and we'll draw this out. (Which, to be clear, would be 100% fine. Great, even. I just don't want to draw this out unless there's a reason to. No one needs to see a full day of "Designation?", "I show my chip to the camera", "I go inside", etc. unless we have some shenanigans to show for it.) Otherwise, tomorrow morning I'm just going to write up a big summary post of what everyone sees from outside and send each of you an individual PM about what happens inside.

Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS watched Bone-R-MAN's reactions as they collected their token. It seemed like the best way to keep up happiness was to not ask Bone-R-MAN to deal with disinfecting the other tokens. Unfortunate.

For now, though, they carefully picked up the last remaining token.

"Farce"? "Schenanigans"?? I'm insulted. I will stand obediently in line for my turn, and had never dreamed of doing otherwise.

(Assuming I am admitted into the building)

"Hygiene is of the utmost importance!" I scream.

I get ahead of the group and try to force everyone to stop, hold out their hands, and receive a generous spray of disinfectant. If they refuse I try to get the disinfectant in the region of their hands. I smile* and nod in the direction of Team Leader each time I do this, and also spray his hands with extra diligence.

Assuming this all happens without incident, I'm then going to hover over the group like a wasp and descend on each and every surface touched by anyone and shower it with disinfectant. I guess I've probably gone through at least one can of the stuff at this point.

Assume I'm doing this at any point that I'm not specific about my actions.

*My version of smiling

Nah. Maybe I wasn't very clear, but barring any shenanigans on your part, none of you are getting in that building at the same time as any of your teammates. 1 in -> get gear -> 1 out -> next. Let me know if that changes anyone's answers!

That said, you can still enact the above outside the building.

No need for that. I'll have a summary post detailing everyone's trips in and out of R&D once I'm satisfied that you're all satisfied with what went on inside.

Default Character Development

The shutter closes again with Hamme-R-TIME inside R&D, and you all obediently line up along the side of the building (several of you taking care to give a ridiculous fresh puddle of urine a wide berth), waiting for you turn to get your exciting new experimental gear.

As you wait while Hamme-R-TIME is inside, you all hear Bone-R-MAN say "OF COURSE TEAM LEADER SIR" to Sou-R-LAD. You're not sure what that was about.

Then the shutter opens again and Hamme-R-TIME exits with a small metal cylinder clutched in one hand, as a voice behind him wishes him a pleasant day.

Next up is Bone-R-MAN, who has a brief exchange with the intercom and then also enters R&D. He exits a couple of minutes later holding a small pad of paper and a pen. You think that you see a small cartoon unicorn printed on them?

Unprecedentedc-R-ISIS goes inside afterwards, and while he entered holding a cooler, he exits holding a cooler with a thick 1-ft square metal plate sitting on top of it.

Sou-R-LAD is next in line, and he bravely strides through the door. When the shutter opens later to let him leave, you all hear through the following through the open door: "Troubleshooter, please note that that equipment is not intended for use without an approved nutritional supplement inside the chamber. Any misuse of the device could damage it." Then Sou-R-LAD exits, awkwardly holding a 3-ft wide, 2-ft thick metal box with a window on the front.

Veryaf-R-AID enters next, and exits holding a gun with a large happy face printed on the side. (Picture this and you're in the ballpark.)

Finally, Sma-R-TIES has his turn, and he leaves with what looks like a laser pointer in his hand.

With the latest in Friend Computer specialized tech at your disposal, this job should be easy!

(The thread is now open again. Full transcripts of what transpired inside R&D will be posted to the champagne room shortly. Turtle, get back to me ASAP if you want anything added to yours.)

"Er,"

I hold out the pen and paper I was given.

"I was given this state-of-the-art recording equipment. As your hygiene officer my intention was to use it to keep track of our team's health, but I suppose I could..."

(grimace)

"...share."

"Not at the moment, but I'll be sure to do whatever I can to procure you some should we come across the opportunity."

*turn to Unprecedentedc*

"Be a doll and carry this for me will you?"

*I put my box on top of his cooler that he's holding with both arms*

"Oh geeze, that's rude of me to ask you to carry so much. Let me help you."

*I slide out the metal plate from between the cooler and the box*

"There we go."
