Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller for March 20, 2013
Danae: So is this a killer robot you brought back? Jeffrey: No... it's a drone worker I found in a recycle bin. I'm hoping to download information from its hard drive... then I might find out how the machines became conscious, and stop the robot apocalypse from ever happening. Danae: How will you know if it works? Jeffrey: It'll vanish because it would've never been built... it's my canary in a time warp coal mine. Robot: Whoa... I don't like where this conversation is headed, slave-boy. Jeffrey: But at least a canary goes quietly.
