This isn't good. How did Pintsize get his new body?

Oh no, imagine if they both get hired.

Pintsize and Claire as co-workers? It can only end in tears.

"...Of fun!"

Pintsize and a actual JOB. Seriously?  :-D

Comics up.

"NO FREE DILDOS?! Fuck it, I'm gone."

No, I reckon he'll still consider it! - Extra income, getting to mess with sex toys all day long AND having first dibs on any new products freshly hatched from the fertile imaginations of sex toy developers...  :roll:

I think it's still Pintsize's dream job - it's a practical joker's paradise! :-D

The thing I'm curious about is whether or not there's some sort of safeguard to keep an AI from inhabiting more than one body at a time.

Because otherwise pintsize might have not so much migrated to a new body as multiplied.

it's been established in-strip that AI algorithms cannot be copied, only moved. Some readers have theorised that any attempt to copy would fail because the differences in environment and sensory input from two chassis, no matter how small, would instantly cause the two algorithms to diverge and rapidly become two very different individuals.

Setting that aside, I do kind of like the idea of particularly well-off synthetics having different bodies the way that you or I have different sets of clothes. Either for different activities or just in case they feel like looking different today.

So how does Yay work?  Are they really one entity managing multiple bodies, or multiple entities that are so similar and interconnected that they may as well be one?

My guess is a combination of Quantum Entanglement and regular synch sessions to 'iron out' any differences.

There are enough differences between all the Yay instances (mostly ultra-subtle) that I wonder if each one represents a different part of the overall single psyche.

Pintsize sadly removes tie, puts it around Claire's neck.


Claire gets the job! She learns that it is actually a front for the Army to test new anti-materiel ordnance in secret. (That's why the 'dildos' explode, burst into flame, penetrate brick walls, etc.)
Before her security clearance can come through, she finds a letter from a library in her mailbox.
They want to hire her!

Do.... do people just decide to go in for an interview like that? Every interview I've gotten in the past 10 years or so, there's been some kind of remote pre-screening.

Good point.

I suspect that for entry-level, low-skill jobs, you can just show up for the interview. Flipping burgers at McDonald's, for example. For any professional job, they won't talk to you until they've read your resume and decided you're worth the time.

It's not clear what's involved in this job. Other than dildos.

Yeah, thatís how I got my call center job. And now, at some teacher job fairs, you can just show up with your resume, and sign a contract right then. Thatís normally not a great sign tho.

My favorite grocery has "instant interview" signs up for a variety of workers.  I suspect that really means, if you indicate interest, they find the MOD who chats you up after you run through the computerized interview system.  If the MOD likes you, you're hired and put into the rotation more or less instantly.
