He explained, “After the snake venom enters the human body, it changes, but also does not change the same time. Therefore, every person who is bitten by a two-headed snake may react differently, and the reaction will change every moment. Because the snake venom is not fixed and changes from time to time, you will never be able to make an antidote according to the snake venom at that time.”
It was too difficult.
In fact, if the snake venom was fixed, it was easy to make a serum based on the snake venom to cure the snake venom. The problem was the venom was ever-changing.
Right after someone finished making the serum, the venom would change, so the serum would become useless.
What could he do?
Thomas smiled bitterly and said, “Only someone like you could concoct this, Mr. Porter. How can ordinary people create such a strange thing?”
Abner coughed awkwardly. “I am hardly enough. Back then, I just provided a wide variety of snake venom for reference. The one who fused them all and implanted it into the body of the two-headed snake via grafting was your master, Mr. Cole.”
Thomas frowned slightly and said, “How about this? List all the snake venoms that are used, and then make the serum according to the possible fusion method. After we make all the serum in one go, we don’t have to worry about any of the changes.”
Abner kept shaking his head. “It’s not that simple. If there are only three or four types of snake venom, then there are only a few possible combinations. The method you said is indeed feasible. But…”
Thomas looked over and asked, “But? Mr. Porter, how many types of snake venom did you provide back then?”
Abner sighed bitterly. “Two hundred and six types.”
“Uh… Well, I’m giving up on this method.”
Two hundred and six types of snake venom!
It could be fused with two, three, dozens, or one hundred kinds of snake venom.
How many combinations would it take for a single serum to counteract them all?
Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or millions?
Those who were good at math could try to do the math. Besides, if the proportion of specific snake venom was high or low when fusion occurred, the requirements for serum would be different.
To sum up, Thomas’ method was not feasible at all. If it could be done so easily, then Abner would not have studied it for more than decades without making any progress.
Pisces sat down and said, “Sigh, with that said, the two-headed snake venom is completely incurable. It’s the same as the gunfight game I was in last week. The enemy was a monster that is extremely fast and changes position all the time, and I could only shoot with a small gun…”
“I couldn’t hit it at all! All I could do was to fire in its general direction, try my luck, and pray that my bullets would hit it, but the odds were so low that I ended up fighting for a whole night.”
The snake venom was changing all the time. If they made a random serum for it, then they could only pray to God to bless them and let them get it right.
Only a very rare coincidence would allow this serum to match with the snake venom at the right instances. This probability was ten thousand times lower than winning five million in the lottery.
The room was quiet for a while. No one spoke, and the atmosphere was a little heavy.
After a long time, Thomas asked curiously, “Pisces, in this game you are talking about, how did you end up defeating such an elusive target? Blindly firing didn’t do it, right?”
Pisces got excited and said, “Of course, it didn’t!”
“Oh? Then how did you pass that level?”
“I found out later that this game actually had a special item, lightning gloves. After I put it on, I could release lightning every five seconds, staggering all objects within a range of ten meters for 1 second!”
“I used the lightning gloves to stagger the boss and then shoot it with a gun. After repeating the process hundreds of times, I finally knocked out the health points of the boss.”
It was true that the boss changed position all the time, but as long as he had the lightning gloves, he could stagger it in place for one second. As long as he was fast enough, this one second was enough to shoot the boss.
