    Listen everyone, the biology division (I don't hang with them often, they don't like giant robots) released a short memo.

    HOW TO RECOGNIZE MIND CONTROL
    If one of your friends acts in unusual ways, they might be mind controlled by the alien scum! List of symptoms include:
    -Absent gaze
    -Slobbering, wide open mouth
    -Unresponsiveness
    -Sluggish or jerking, automatic movements
    -Tendency to shoot you on sight
    -General dislike for the science personnel *written in a different style* OR TENGU
    In other words, these symptoms are nigh impossible to distinguish from waking up early in the morning without coffee. Or being Copper. If you suspect anyone of being mind controlled, let your superior officer know immediately! If you haven't been shot dead yet.

    Good advice for us all.

    Also: Tengu:

    I'm feeling the strangest urge to give you a "Promotion". Also, some new "job benefits".

    Now you get a free toothbrush. Sadly, we just have one, so you'll have to use if for both the standard purposes and your exciting expanded job activities.

    That's right! Now you get to clean out the toilets with a toothbrush. I know you're excited.

    It's not that I brush my teeth anyway...

    Yes, I am excited. Very excited. So excited that I can't help but think that someone is going to leap out and steal my new job from my hands the moment we finish this conversation and I go to slack off fulfill my duties.

    Considering the regular questions about the status of so far unused recruits, I think something like a fodder index in the first post - listing name, status (not created, alive, dead), location and rank - could be helpful.
    And most likely save a lot of time in the long run.

    I would further like to note that this was indeed Tengu Temp's idea, who was just nice enough to let me make the suggestion to help a rookie.

    Such a great guy, that Tengu Temp.

    Well Commander, I was in the neighborhood and I got to thinkin' about all those letters mah cousin Copper sends me all the time about how fun it is bein' in X-Com! So I saw yer 'lil buildin' thur, and I got to figurin'; "well gosh darn! I know I played that thur Starcraft game for, gee, must be 'round six hunnert hours now, and I do lurve shootin' me some aliens!" So I reckon I'd just stop on by and see if'n I could land myself a position on board as a valued and indispensable teammate.

    You know, if you don't want to be a Grunt (because of the backlog of cannon fodder) you could sign on for some other role, like a pilot so you still get into the reports.

    No. Just let your superiors know. And if the lazy one is a scientist, high chances are you are actually being mind controlled instead. In that case, you can make an exception - feel free to shoot yourself.

    I mean, every base needs an interceptor, and we're well on out way to some pretty good gear...

    And because it's awesome.
    Not to mention that if everybody wears a flying suit, and turns it on and floats inside the skyranger on the way to a mission, the saved weight means we can bring more guns, ammo, and sammiches!
    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.
    Then there is my gaming YouTube page with Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft, and others.
    Finally, I stream on Twitch, mostly Kerbal Space Program and Minecraft.

    Probably mind control.

    The only weeds at X-Com bases are toxic, so if you were smoking them, you'd be dead.

    And it would serve you right, hippy.
