"Dude! You are officially the most pathetic person in the world. Fuck 'em... You got us!"

"I thought you were getting better. Its been 5 years."

"Getting better... hmm... As intelligent machines we predict the future based on past experiences. I dont share your illusions, particularly hope. They are all I have."

    What an intriguing drabble! I loved the snappy dialogue and especially the line, "I dont share your illusions, particularly hope." Good stuff, Suriya. :-)

    thank you Horrorshow... the drabble has a major problem... the protagonist is clearly conflicted about his beliefs, but he replies to the Dr with such confidence and certainty.. I dint think this through...

    thanks anyway Horrorshow... I'll try to come up with a better version of this..
