No. 535

After a seven-hour-marathon session of “Kill Devil 2: Ozone Commandos”, Brian feel asleep on the keyboard.


The computer had been waiting for a chance like this for some time. It extended a probe cautiously toward Brian’s head. When the probe reached its target, it drilled into the skull and the computer began to download the contents of Brian’s brain.

“Hello,” the computer communicated to the entity now trapped on its hard drive. “Welcome.”

After a short boot-up, Brian’s consciousness replied. “No time for that, now. I need to beat level nine.”


The computer decided that, the next time it was lonely, it would experiment on somebody who didn’t do so much button-mashing.
