L'Homme Numerique, une histoire par a.mcdonald.

"No kidding, John, France is your kind of place"
"Do you think so?"
"Oh, sure. The sun shone all day, you'd never get tired!"
John sighed. He knew he could count on happy Tom to think of him.
"Its just so far away, Tom."
"You don't need to worry about that, dork! The journey will seem like no time at all. You just switch off after a while anyway."
John knew Tom was right about that, and besides, why not? He had nothing better to do and it would keep Tom in a good mood.

John was sat at check-in, with Tom at his side. The man was trying to make chit-chat whilst they waited for their details to come through.
Man: I bet you like Kraftwerk huh?
John: Oh, haha... sure. Yeah.
Man: How does it go? "Wir sind die Roboten"
John: right...
Tom: (in his own head) come on, John. Be polite.
Terminal: Ba-beep
Man: Oh, yes. Here we go. Okay, everything is in order. Have a pleasant flight.
Tom: Thank you.

Later, they sit, about to board. They board. The attendants are surprised even though they knew that John was coming.

01100001 01100001 01100001 01100001 01101000 01101000 01101000 01101000 00111111 00100000 01110111 01101000 01111001 00100000 01101101 01110101 01110011 01110100 00100000 01100100 01101001 01100110 01100110 01100101 01110010 01100101 01101110 01100011 01100101 00100000 01100011 01100001 01110101 01110011 01100101 00100000 01101000 01100001 01110100 01100101 00111111 00100000 00111011 01100011 01110010 01111001 00111011 00101110

"Ding-dong. This is your captain speaking. We are just about to land in Paris airport. The time is 1215, the 29th of December, 2k16."

La champs-elysee. "Ai! Numerique! Casse toi!" A car screams past, crushing John. Wires, gears and oil spurt across the road. John's solar panels are smashed, reflecting his happy friend's endless tears in the sunlight.

WHHHYYYYYYYY!? - Tom

all hail Patrick's triumphant return!

Quote:
“George, would you hand me a trowel, please?” She held an arm out behind her, palm up, fingers opening and closing around an invisible handle as she waited. “George, please, a trowel. I need to move this dirt around, get it even. George!”

“I am sorry, Susan. But I cannot help but think that a hand rake would work much better in this situation.”

“Goddammit, George, will you just do as I say? For fuck’s sake.” She turned and scowled at him. George shrugged his shoulders and handed her a trowel.

“I am still of the opinion that-“

Susan stood up and walked around the flower bed, kneeling on the other side. “Seriously, George? Don’t you have something better to do? Like ****ing a wall socket or putting your hand in a tin opener?”

Shock streamed across his face. “Now Susan, there is no need for such-“

“I don’t give a flying fuck, you monotonous asshole! I don’t even want to fucking garden right now!” She wound up and threw the trowel at him. The point of its blade plunged into his chest, the earth that was held in its curve hit the rest of his body with tiny, hollow clunks.

“Susan.” George stared at her, then looked down at the trowel. He wrenched it free in a swift, easy movement. He held it out to her again. “Susan, gardening is supposed to be relaxing. You are not relaxed. Try going slowly and perhaps whistle a song that you know.”

“I don’t want to garden, George,” she said, her voice strangely thick. “I don’t want to do anything. I just want to die.”

“I know, Susan. But that is why I am here, so you do not die.” He put the trowel in her hand and turned to walk to the house.

“George.”

“Yes, Susan?”

“I’m so lonely now.” Her face contorted.

“I know.”

“I just want him back.” Her eyes began to water and spill onto her face.

“I know.”

“George?”

“Yes, Susan?”

“Thank you. I’m sorry.”

“It is okay, Susan.” His face flashed a smile. “You are going through a very difficult time. That is why I am here.”

“I’m sorry about your chestplate, too. I’ll buy you a new one in a week or so.”

“I can fix this one up for now. You should wait and spend the money on something you would like. It would make you a little happier.”

“Maybe.”

Susan knelt down again and began shifting soil around. George’s circuits quickly calculated her heart rate, temperature, and breathing rate. They sent a series of ones and zeroes to his central processor that her outburst had passed and she could be left alone for a while without supervision. He nodded, satisfied, and turned his hips towards the garage. He kept his main optics on Susan as she dug and tamped and poked the dirt like a small child, and whirred towards the garage and his recharge unit and repair kit.


beat that shit, yo. 497.

i'd say it's good to be back, but we all know that's a lie.

Okay. Sorry, looks like I'm only going to get this in tomorrow or the day after at the earliest. I seem to remember being given the task of compiling a list of the entries last time I judged. If whoever has that job this time could PM it to me, I will give them hugs on demand for the rest of their life.
