Default Communicating with Nids

After reading some recent entries regarding nids and tau, I came up with this hopefully comical Tau research. Enjoy!

As a Tau scientist, I have pondered the question regarding how one could possibly communicate with the seemingly mindless Tyrinads. After observing their extremely bestial and fierce nature (and exhausting all other options), I decided to try a simple "yes", "no" approach.

Killing one kroot means yes, killing two kroot means no. I believe I may be making progress, but it will be postponed till I can get some more Kroot. Besides, what else could I possibly use them for?

To bring an old Warhammer quote from a Dwarf Engineer:

"When I communicatt... communo.... talk to Greenskin scum, I use my flamecannon as a translator...."

Or, to give it a Tau-touch:

"When we contact the Yhe, we use our Pulse Rifles as translators" *g*

Yeah that would be funny but how do you ask them questions with only yes no, and won't the kroot not like being eaten?

Consider it a success if you can talk a Khorne Berserker out of taking your skull at the first instant he meets you
