Challenge #04026-K008: Socially Engineered

Don't be a bully. You have NO idea who, or what, might be watching. Do NOT be a bully, you have no idea how strong the ones you're picking on, despite them being much smaller than you, truly are. Just... do NOT be a bully! -- Anon Guest

Of all the small crimes of Human society, the most pernicious and egregious has to be the bad habit of bullying. Asserting dominance and some fragment of superiority by putting someone else down. Climbing up the social ladder by stepping on other people's fingers, as it were.

They were in Pax Humanis for a long time, working with therapists due to their explosive temper. A new medication was found that could aid in controlling the temper due to the chemical imbalance in their brain and they volunteered to try the new treatment.

It's been ten years since they've had even a single violent episode. An individual at a station got in their face, pushed them, became belligerent and violent themselves, and instead of killing the person, they merely grabbed

Training up the Baby Tongue

Okay, so I will admit to having a diet free of anything slightly burn-ish. The spiciest thing I cook is chilli con carne sans the chilli, and with a moderate amount of ginger instead.

Trouble is, everything everywhere is full of hotter spices than a splash of ginger.

And I often can’t stand it.
