Freefall 2891 - 2900
Freefall 2891

Police and other obstacles

Why are you being chased?
I noticed there were tie off points near the officer's break room door.
Then a quick scrounge about turned up a roll of surgical tubing, a plastic bucket, and a duck.
Well, one thing led to another and here we are.
Your “one thing leads to another” and my “one thing leads to another” never lead to the same place.

Medical or surgical tubes  -rubber ones made of sand rubber. Perfect material for slingshot harnesses. I think I'm beginning to guess how Sam combined these three items… (KALDYH)

Police and other obstacles

It doesn't take long to make a decision when your options are lead, follow, or get crushed by a mob.

Freefall 2894

Police and other obstacles

Wait, wait, wait. We lost them.
Isn't that the point?
The point is to have a challenge. Do you enjoy playing against an opponent you can easily beat?
I understand.
On the other hand, seeing a fat deer with a limp is kind of like finding a fifty on the sidewalk.
Freefall 2895

Police and other obstacles

What are you doing?
We have not been programmed for this. We are learning how to navigate the obstacle.
We are each making slight changes in how we leap to grab the bar. Eventually, we'll figure out how to do it.
Guys, I don't have all day. Can't you run a simulation in your head to work out leap force, time to bar, time to grip and that kind of thing?
You mean, use our imaginations.
No, I… huh. Yeah, I guess I do.

Florence's superiority over the other IskIns, who walked the rungs without a second thought, was simply dazzling. (Robot Spike)

Freefall 2896

Police and other obstacles

Florence, did you need something?
You have a grip reflex. I press in your palm and your fingers close.
My kind is known for hanging on once we grab something.
Robots don't have that reflex. They touch, visually verify, then close their grip. On a jump, it's too slow. They fall.
However, if they hook their hands before they jump, they could grab the bar.
Practical and boring. I think we'll all be happier if you take your time and come up with a proper solution involving catapults, bungee cords, and duct tape.
Freefall 2897

Police and other obstacles

Remember to verify that your arms can support your weight.
You're defeating the purpose of the obstacle!
Supervised learning. Twenty centimeters is enough for the first jump and less likely to cause damage if they miss.
You guys better get the hang of this quick. It doesn't matter how good I am, no one is going to be thrilled by our chases if they occur on the bunny slope.

By the way, Flo measured the height in centimeters, not inches. Another confirmation (after the Rivit car) that imperial units have not survived in the local future space (Robot Spike)

Freefall 2898

Police and other obstacles

I can do this. I have the telemetry of the robots who went before me. I just have to repeat what they did.
Warning! Deviation from model!
The ground is getting muddy. That's making it slippery. What are you going to tell those following you?
[!1.4]That the real world cheats!
Freefall 2899

Police and other obstacles

Get over obstacle, check. Catch Sam, check. Hey, guys! I think we just won the chase!

The binary account in the first cylinder is “one, two, three”. Decided not to translate (Robot Spike)

Freefall 2900

Meatloaf and other reasons to go to jail

That was easy. Now what?
It is the warden's day off.
If we send you to prison, do you promise to be out by morning?
So, what are you in for?
Meatloaf night!

- What are you in for? For this meatloaf! (alas, I can't find a way to play it in Russian)(Fogel)
I decided to summarize the reasons simply “freeloading” (Robot Spike)
