So we all know they're bullet resistant...

Post by Sintendo on Sun 16 Sep 2007 - 11:43

But can they survive stabbings or slit throats?

A knife easily penetrated Triela's hand (even though she blocked it from her face), but I can see a situation where, if Pino were on the attack, a sneak attack from behind and slitting a cyborg's throat would work much better than a gun. Afterall, they still need blood to live, right?

Good question Sintendo!

I think it's a better way to kill cyborgs too.

Jesus H Christ! A redundant circulatory, and vascular system?! You barely have space for the organs you have boy! Sure artificial ones may be more efficient, but not that efficient.

Anyway killing the girls by blood loss doesn't sound easy. They never tend to bleed like they aught to. Really your only chance seems to be a major artery. Even then there is no telling just how much damage that would actually do. The girls have been shot enough that a major artery has to get hit from time to time. Slitting their throat would work, but slicing off an arm. Not going to kill them, at the very least not as fast as it would a real person.

How about a hydroshock bullet to the forehead?
Hydroshock bullets do not work like normal bullets or exploding dum-dum bullets. They work by the principal of 'upon impact, creating a shock wave of vibrations which is equal to in frequency of water, thus causing cellular disruptions on a massive scale.'

Being hit by a Hydroshock bullet on any limp- you lose that limb.
Being hit by a Hydroshock bullet in the torso- your death will be a slow and painful one as your organs explode from within.
Being hit by a Hydroshock bullet to the head-... well... in one autospy record I remember seeing:
"Once the skull cap was remove, we were expecting to find the brain with the bullet leaving a train within the grey and white matter. We found scrambled jello inside."

There's always the good old standby to explain how they could survive such an attack.

Magic.

On the serious note, I would think that they mostly have an above average survivability compared to a normal meat bag (a.k.a. human.)

Something that a regular joe schmoe has been able to survive I would think the gals have a good, if not better, chance of surviving as well. Such as (loose usuage of ->) typical gunshot wounds, stabbings, car crashes, high drops and so on.

I have in my mind that while they do have higher stamina, endurance, pain tolerance, etc. - any (again loose usage->) absolute fatal injury for a human would be just as fatal for them as well. For example having your neck sliced with a sword/big frickin' knife. Or being hit by an RPG. Perhaps even a disemboweling by a pack of rabid zombies.

For the original post...I consider a slit throat to be an event one would be highly unlikely recover from (though there have been exceptions.)

Buffy never ran into a someone smart enough to read the rules. Seriously though I think the stake would only kill out right if it where quickly removed. They might bleed slowly enough for their super awesome non-bleeding ability to work if the stake where left in. Well I suppose it also depends on how deep into the heart you got...

Wait, zombies, ZOMBIES?! That would be friggin' sweet! Gunslinger Girls Vs Zombies. Fuck yeah. You know your going to eventually have Zombie Gunslinger Girls. With their skulls, oh shit son! Your pistol to the head wont do the trick anymore! Though the zombies wont be able to eat their brains...

SUPER AWESOME! That's so going in my game.

I can think of several methods one could take down an SWA cyborg with, other than shooting them through their eye sockets, blowing them up with high explosives, or peppering them with armor-piercing bullets. All are rather unconventional, and probably quite effective.

I'm presently contemplating the wisdom of revealing these techniques here prior to writing them into a future fanfic. Stay tuned for the last word.

All right, fine - I'll post them.

An intense electric shock or an electromagnetic pulse, in my opinion, could knock out an cyborg's cyber implants and leave him/her incapacitated. Administered in a sufficiently high magnitude, either of these could cause catastrophic results. I'll cite the case of a poor bloke whose corpse I examined at the hospital where I do my training in pathology. The electrocution he received was fairly mild, but it caused his pacemaker to short out and explode. It was ugly - the luckless guy might as well have pulled the pin on a grenade and held it to his chest.

The lion's share of a cyborg's body may be protected by armor, but I feel the same cannot be said regarding the finer aspects of his/her systems - like the auditory system, for instance. I've read of Nazi experiments that involved bombarding human test subjects with sonic weapons, these resulting in severe neurological impairment and, in several cases, death by cerebral hemorrhage. Considering that cyborgs' hearing is ultra-sensitive, I imagine the outcome could be far more severe if they were hit by such a weapon.

I'm not sure how effective chemical or biological weapons would be against mechanical children with artificial organs, or even radiation. My fanfiction, incidentally, depicts cyborgs as being immune to poison gas, germs and radiation, but vulnerable to highly corrosive substances. I've seen chemicals that can melt titanium - I imagine that kind of stuff could harm a cyborg.

Any thing out of NBC should do it, though I'll probably name some specifically. Set on fire, venomous animals, drowning, a lot of, or well placed, blunt force trauma, Strangle/hang/garrote wire, Oxygen starvation, Freeze (Terminator II Very Happy), Heat (Lost in the desert), Standing in front of the wrong radar dish*, Touch of Death™, Spiked Pit, Bear traps(?), Crushing, Eating to much child asprin**, Alcohol poisoning (Hilarious), Electrocution, and I'm out of ideas.


* You think you could get a person to pop, like popcorn, with mircowaves? I can't think of any reason you couldn't. They might die first, but they should still pop, right?

**maybe this is why they aren't give other drugs, so they don't commit suicide?? Nah, guns are way easier.

-Edit-
Spent to long thinking, and you posted. Anyway exploding cyborg components is one I hadn't thought of. I always though of the girls as being very organic. From the surgery in episode two, to the leg replacement in vol 4, they always looked bio to me. Though I could see small chips here and there for nerves, maybe, maybe even one for brain washing. I don't know, have to think about it some more.

We never see organs though, so who knows what they look like. Some poisons may defeated in this manner, some may not, some may work at reduced effectiveness. I imagine things like cyanide, blood agents, and the likes would most certain still kill. Blister agents should work on the skin, and eyes, but may no longer damage the lungs. Nerve agents are entirely up in the air.

Obviously its a spelling mistake of Hydro vs Hydra, but when I spoke to my gun-nut friend of mine, he saids that they go by either name, and both function the same. You need to see a gun dealer about that.

He also stated that these bullets can only be legally owned in limited qualities (at least here in the USA). Though they do have limited amour piercing abilities, it can be enhanced by various techniques which I wont mention here. You can always shoot at the same place twice- and you can forget about what ever amour that was there. But as for the injury pattern, its as it was said- but I'll add this: upon penetration, the bullet opens up or mushrooms, creating a shockwave within the area it penetrates. Its it the shockwave that does the killing damage and not the penetration.

Vick's Vaporub works when dealing with a morgue, where most of the bodies are kept "fresh". Working at a "highway" hospital you eventually find yourself on the "first response" rotation. I'm not exactlly sure what it was, but they gave us some kind of nostril spray that deadened our sense of smell for a couple of hours. In emergencies(i.e if you absolutely need your sense of smell at all times) old-fashioned MentholLitthum(sp?), a British medicine chest staple for decades, works wonders. The trouble is actually cleaning it off.

\\reads page

Hu, they sound like regular old hollow points to me. I was always under the impression that hollow points did their damage by rending flesh, not liquid based harmonic vibrations propagating through the body. A single shock-wave I could see, but the way you initially described makes me scratch my head. I'm no expert though, I'll try doing some more research.

Anyway I said I had to do some thinking about electrocution, and how it would effect any electronics the girls may have. The girls contain a lot of what I like to call 'handwavium'. In true quantum nature handwavium can not function while begin observed. So considering there isn't a reliable understanding of the mechanics of the girls this really boils down to making assumptions.

\\Toss disclaimer aside

I firmly believe that the girls are mostly bio. The agency seems to have the request tech to be growing muscles. To boot the Vol 4 Pg 18, has a doctor taking an ultra sound of Claes heart. I'm not doctor but it looks like the valve system is at least bio. Which leads me to believe that it's nothing more than a normal heart, only made of the same super muscle we see else where in the body. I doubt any of the other organs are as natural as the heart, but I don't think any are all electro mechanical.

That being said the need for electrical circuitry should be minimal. Most artificial organs are going to be chemical/cell plants in plastic containers. I expect that most of what electronics there are will be small integrated circuits for the nervous system. Now these should not explode violent. Integrated circuits, thanks to their diminutive nature, tend to just pop. However failure of such devices would cripple said girl, maybe even kill as their heart gives stops getting the order to pump. I would be surprised to see a grenade like explosion though. I also strongly suspect the batter in said pace maker, which the girls should have none of.

Also sonic, I understand that sound can kill. However I was under the impression that sound kills you by vibrating things that should not be vibrated. Like your brain against your skull. So I don't think they would be more vulnerable to death, but one of those distracting speaker set ups, yeah. Though I wonder how do they handle the bang of a standard fire are when they can hear clear across the room?

*agrees*

I've worked on a few cadavers for study as well. I find them completely fascinating. Perhaps I'm weird like that.

Back on target however:

Hydrashock Ammo:
I merely thought they were a type of modified JHP as well. Difference is they have a steel core to help expansion or something like that. Don't quote me on that, going by memory.

Electrocution:
I can see why they might place electrical circuits inside of their cyborgs, but if I were in charge of designing (right term?) them I wouldn't put electrical systems in them at all. What with all the militaries toting how they have "EMP" shielding and all that on their vehicles. I don't want my cyborg frying out on me.

Sides, we've all own some sort of electronic appliance. I'm sure each of us has had one that just fried cause it felt like it.

Finally Sonic weaponry: I think I once saw a show where a bounty hunter incapacitates his target by placing the cylinder of his revolver (dunno the kind off the top of my head, but it was a big one) next to the guys ear and fires it. Knocking the dude out cold. Now if that's actually possible or not I don't know. It was, after all, a TV show.

Interesting.
I was a Bio/PreMed before life got in the way. Before and after, I did summers as a city pool's life guard and red cross first responder volunteer. I was there at 9/11 for the first week before the dust comtamination got to be too much to handle. By then, anybody that was to be found, were found. It was not until almost 18 months later when they found a few more bodies in the basement when they finally reached that level.

If it were not for the Life guarding experience years before, I would not have handled 9/11 as well as I did.

Sides, we've all own some sort of electronic appliance. I'm sure each of us has had one that just fried cause it felt like it.

Electronics have their limitations, they also have their advantages. A gas turbine engines makes the M1 Abrams one of the fast tanks in the world. Also helps it gives the Abrams a relatively bad gas milage. We know that nerves have to be replaced in the girls. I can only think of just a small number of ways the this could be done.

First would be to grow biological nerves, and getting them to bind with the others. Difficult to replace, and repair, with no real advantages. Second would be to get some super conducting wires going. Nerve signals are small, resistance is bad. Super conducting at temperatures inside the body, could happen given enough miracles material science. Easier to maintain, but still no performance improvement over the original. Finally you could get regular wires with electronic amplifiers at various points. Easy to maintain, relatively simple, while offering performance improvement. More vulnerable to electrical attack.

As to longevity, just look at pace makers. Those things may only have to be implanted once. Electronics die more often then out, because of poor quality and planed obsolescence. My hard drive is only designed to last say five years. Considering all the other maintenance the girls receive there electronics aught to be little more than a drop in the bucket.

Which would you choose. Difficult to maintain, or create, systems that don't offer any advantages. Or a simple system that can work better then the original, while having an increased venerability to electricity? Though it is true there are ways to minimizes this weakness.

I believe I put out the idea of Faraday cages earlier. I'm not sure as to their limitations though. I never liked the electrical part of physics. However installing a copper mesh layer in the body has it's logistic, and technical issues. Though as far as I can tell it would do wonders of the girls in terms of electrical grounding.

Maybe it was the pain of a ruptured ear drum? Or he though he was about to die, and fainted like a wuss.

-most likely. A good portion of the damage that a gunshot wound does to someone is psychological. That's why someone on PCP can keep on coming with 30+bullets in him.

Don't forget Japanese troops during the Pacific War, who were often pumped up on opium and/or sake. U.S. infantry frequently reported having to shoot each man at least six times with their M1 Garands or blast away with half-magazines from M1 Thompsons before dropping him. I recall reading of an American marine on Peleliu who wound up losing one of his kidneys to a Japanese soldier's bayonet despite him emptying his M3 grease gun at the guy, who continued charging in even as the bullets rammed home.

On the other hand, however, one needn't be high on something to withstand battle wounds. Take the April '86 FBI Miami shootout, for instance - bank robbers Mike Platt and Bill Matix's ability to fight through multiple traumatic gun shot wounds, continue to battle and attempt to escape were not achieved through any artificial means, including body armor or drugs.

They were probably screencaps used without permission (from the publisher), using imageshack or somesuch. Wikipedia gets bitchy about copyright infringement.

I recall Rico survived being hit by a car, but I feel that being hit by an eighteen-wheeler would cause serious damage. Durable though the girls may be, I doubt they're as durable as Mr. T-101.

Hit by a car is going to kill with blunt force trauma. However I hadn't though of that specifically.

I thought all the idea's had dried up, but a part of me enjoys the morbid challenge. Tied to the train tracks like a damsel in distress...

Today's aerodymanically shaped cars kill in an instant; the short slopping hoods forces the person being struck to hit their head against the windshield and its frame, cause massive head trauma. Its to unlike an older car, where you bounce off the hood first and then roll off it.
