      The 456 provided the choice: Give us all of your children, or we will

      destroy your entire species. It appears that the 456 live in a

      black-and-white world. Either this or that.... If they take only 10

      percent of the children, they will not be destroying our whole species and

      what they threaten will not mean anything. We don't care, but they might.

      Richard, you make sense, and I guess the 456 did show a willingness to

      compromise. However, I wouldn't trust absolutely anything they said. If

      they followed through on their original threat, no one in the species would

      be around to know whether the 456 compromised or not.

      Couldn't a child other than Jack's grandchild have been chosen? Why did

      Jack choose that child?

      Now who's rambling on?? Me!!
