Freefall 1661

Robot and Artificial Intelligence Development. R.A.I.D.

“Gardener in the Dark” is a program designed to prevent robots from becoming a threat to humanity.
It's also going to make me the richest person on the planet.
And as any Grizzly Bear with a cub will tell you, there's nothing more dangerous than getting between a manager and his money.

That Bowman's Wolf looks remarkably similar to the one that delayed me from a meeting. Must be a clone.
Which means we have plenty more. I'll have this one put into storage and another sent to the mayor in the same dress. I'd never notice the difference, therefore she won't either.
There might be a minor detail or two I've overlooked, but it's not my job to come up with a workable plan. It's my job to yell at the workers when they can't carry it out.

The only thing better than a free lunch is a free lunch at a buffet.
You packed quite a doggy bag.
Yeah. I'd have gotten more if that server hadn't been so quick with the food covers.
Though please don't give the bag to your A.I. until after were done testing.
What? Oh! Well, I suppose I could save her a sausage patty or two.

I'm sorry, I must have fallen asleep. Hello, I'm Florence Ambrose.
Hi. We're running behind. Please come with me.
Mr. Kornada was here. About fifteen minutes ago.
You must be mistaken. Mr. Kornada would never come here. Getting this close to actual work makes him break out in hives.

The medical boys want data on how your hips and legs are developing. Is it true you used to walk on all fours?
It's true.
Interesting. Well, their tests are all very automatic. I'll be outside talking to you over the intercom.
Aren't you coming in?
Or aren't you allowed to?
They looked so cute in their little lead lined cages. How was I supposed to know they were radioactive mutant exploding hamsters?

They're looking for… programmed bone growth. Abdominal muscles and internal organ support. How well the circulatory system keeps up now that I'm on my hind legs.
Ah, the joys of being a Beta Model. Only for future generations would I run like this in front of cameras on a treadmill.
And I'm sure future generations will understand why that mechanical rabbit had to go.

Florence is the problem?

Mr. Starfall. There's no need for you to wait any longer.
This just came through. They want your A.I. put in cold sleep as soon as we're done testing. She must have tripped a warning flag or something.
Sorry. This must come as quite a surprise.
Yeah. I never thought we'd have trouble getting out of here because of something SHE did!

Florence is the problem?

Very interesting. It's Mr. Kornada who wants Florence put into cold sleep. Hold my bag, please. I've got to check some notes.
Notes are gone. Dress is gone. Everything gone. This can only mean one thing.
She found out something GOOD!

Florence is the problem?

Hi, Crickets! I bet you thought we forgot all about you.
I've got a dangerous assignment for you. The risk is high and the pay is low. Some of you may not be coming back.
But succeed in this mission and when people talk about bugs in the fire detection system, you guys are going to be legendary.

Florence is the problem?

Saint Bernard.
Word association test. Did you find what you were looking for?
In a manner of speaking. By the way, can you tell me what this is?
It's a map of evacuation routes. See, in case of an emergency, we can exit here, here, and here.
First rule of being a successful scavenger. Always take care of the guy who provides the free lunch.
