The reason I'm on this subway with my torn up frayed and charred 2 piece suit is not as easy to explain as you want it to be.
I can see you're surprise at stopping in Gainsville in the first place. That's not that hard to explain, I used an insulated rabbit hole command to make the train stop.
know, the quality of your dress stuns me. We've been told all outside of Gainsville were living in hovels and eating rats.
"Hardly", the taller man in the sand colored suit said, but said nothing more. His physique said more than that.
'Hardly', what a word if you're only using one thought Meyer. Maybe the biobot was right! Maybe I'm jumping from a frying pan out into the fire!
Oh! St.Spurrier! Help me through this tribulation - maybe the MIND was right.
The rest of the world was mad and if - wait! Wait, my own mind or the impulsive parts of it - come back! Whoa!
Does Mr.'Hardly' look like he's underfed?
Does Mr.'Hardley' look to be all that concerned about my point of view?
No. He doesn't.
I am finally, finally safe!
Hey, HARDLEY! I yell. Everyone on the train turns to look, but I make eye conact with Alex Anillos - the guy in the sand colored suit.
Do you know why there's never been any stops in Gainsville - I ask him.
It turned out he was a newsman. I thought they were extinct, but here one was.
I'll let him take it from here.
Alex Anillos reporting from Miami metro. I have the first information out of the Gainsville Protectorate in 4 years.
Though asking for anonymity, we can show you clipcam video of who we must call Mr. S fleeing the Gainsville landing platform to escape to the train.
We apologize for having to blur the video in the area of his face and also for not divulging any information other than the first letter of his last name, but we hope you, as did we, will understand when you hear the terrifying account of a man struggling with a MIND gone wrong.
(Are you with me so far?)
I am breaking this off.
The manufactured industrial neural divice is something that only became possible in 2010.
The fact that cells could be manipulated by computer sequenced dna & coded to function as directed changed the world.
The MIND came into existence and solved everything. The scientist figured out how to make the most massive computer ever conceived of by manipulating cellular dna.
Unfortunately, one of them went bonkers. All across the world they were directing where to spend taxes on what / what to teach to whom - all for a musketeer benifit.
But not in Gainsville.
The researchers, the programers, they were all just clean cut college kids back, way back then.
Who would have figured their university pride and prejudice would have leaked into the massive cellular consruct derived from lab crated dna instructions which was only supposed to be a biological calculator, but ended up becoming a regional tyrant due to repeated comments about Tallehassee in the MINDS infancy / awakening.
