Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Equivocated Prevarication


Tagon: Sergeant, we're thinking about open-sourcing the teraport project. This would drop the market value of our parent company, andreyasn I.I.E. by over ninety-eight percent.
Schlock: Wow. If you do that my stock won't be worth much.
Tagon: And we won't really be in the hyperdrive business anymore.Our parent company will fold, and we'll have to carry our own weight again. It'll be hard work.
Tagon: I'll be honest with you. It's going to mean lower pay, longer hours, and more dangerous work than we've grown accustomed to lately.
Schlock: I've heard enough, sir. You're making me drool on my plasgun.
Tagon: I still wonder why you carry that thing in your mouth.
