Book 17: A Little Immortality — Part IV


NARRATOR: The Urtheep Industries CQ-101 is just a multi-patch bus sitting under a power supply and a brain.

It's useless until you attach things to it...

If you're feeling silly you can hook up some industrial cable arms and have yourself a sweet tentacle robot.

But if you want to get your money's worth, you'll hook it up to something useful, like a vehicle repair facility, or a restaurant.

(Or both.)

The point here is that your CQ-101 is like a fancy outfit...

inventory clerk: I'm still running it down.

I swear, when I die, it will be during an inventory cross-check.

NARRATOR: It's not fancy without the right accessories.
