I’m in the middle of a drive to Kansas and back, to pick up artwork for Cedra. Wish me good speed!

    Good speed and safe travels to you , good sir!


    Alas, the Potty-bot. One of the noblest of those who’ve come to light in Spacetrawler (competing with Martina for “Noblest” is a losing gig for anybody), and the best of friends by his attentive servitude. He doesn’t only mean well, he does well – and yet gains no respect for it because of what he is, an existence he can never rise above. I salute you, humble hero.

    It’s not like I’m gonna tattoo of him or anything, though. He’s a potty-bot, after all.

      @War Pig, Dude, it’s Kansas. He’s going to face headwinds no matter which direction he heads. (Full disclosure: I lived in Topeka for a number of years in the ’80s.)

    Safe travels, Chris. And watch out for the other guy, who isn’t watching out for you.

    I imagine social relations with a sentient toilet are always going to be awkward, no matter what. And a sleeping berth doesn’t really help that.

    Trying to understand why the orange alien would be against travelling in “food” particularly delicious smelling food. or maybe he just wants to keep a low profile.

    Surely Emily would not be incompetent and put Chris with someone dangerous?

    Vehicle from hell.

      Potty-bot has been upgraded to the privacy model … not that he understands why anyone would want privacy for a function everybody does multiple times a day … with what looks to be plush velour seats. Comfy.

    PottyBot is closer than we think. “Kohler’s Numi 2.0 “intelligent” toilet will listen when you talk to it… built-in surround speakers and LED mood lighting—to the bathroom. Do you need a toilet that listens? … Kohler has also put Alexa, as well as Google Assistant, in a line of bathroom mirrors and sells a voice-command faucet for kitchen sinks; it envisions a world in which you can chat with all of your fixtures. ” From Wired.
