No one left alive, so I may as well admit it...
I couldn't come up with a formula to combat the strangler vines. I found some industrial strength herbicide in the storage room. The fancy dispenser, the formula notes, this lab station... all just a facade.
At first, I added a tiny bit and it worked. No one got sick. Seemed fine. You guys thought I was really smart, so win-win, right?
They started resisting the smaller dose. Had to up it. I thought maybe our drinking water's filtration system would fix it. People puking their guts out says otherwise.
I refuse to drink it. I'd rather let the thirst take me.
Sorry guys. At least I got to feel what it was like to be the smartest guy in the room for a bit.
For anyone that finds this, I'll leave some herbicide behind. Use every bit of it and give those vines my best regards.
