So, for all the work us miners were doing yesterday, I was given some of the prepped meat rations to keep us going. While eating it, I couldn't help but notice it was super bland.
I'm no great cook, but how hard is it to toss some salt and pepper on some meat? If we're going to be taking the time to cook, why not add some seasonings and make this crap taste good?
I'll have to ask Dr. Strauss if it will be any better for our bodies or not. It's not like were using Salt for anything except preservation right now anyway.
So, the good doctor thought it was a grand idea and went even further about adding it to the water as well. When she went to doublecheck her notes with a spire drone, I shared the news with Gander.
He proceeded to chew my ass out about how that was a waste of time and resources. Anyone mining salt could be mining something more beneficial or doing something more productive. I tried to argue back that we are only researching the possibilities and that ANY data holds value. His obstinateness knows no limits.
Then a tech doct comes up, expresses her extreme interest in that research and wanted to know how long until I could get a few units of salt for testing.
SUDDENLY GANDER IS TOTALLY ON BOARD with that whole project and expressing to the tech docts what a great idea they had.
It literally took everything I had for me to not shoot him on the spot. On a side note, Salt crumbles too easily to get enough aggression out. Platinum on the other hand, now there is a worthy workout...
So, to finish this up, we now have some pretty tasty meat that's good for moral and a saline solution to treat intense dehydration, which is good cause I don't remember the last time I took a piss... or felt a need to...
