Talk to me directly


Prompts = Diminish, Saturnine, Bother

The officer Jamie took Robbie the RoboCop to the Mars Chambers of Commerce monthly meeting. Unlike children, it’s a tough crowd to please. They received only saturnine responses after demonstration.

An attendee asks, “Is it true that a RoboCob’s strength diminishes when its power reserve is less than 10%?”

“Nope. He’s fully functional until no power left”, Jamie answers.

After a few Q & A, mostly about his strength, Robbie stood up all of a sudden.

“It bothers me if you talk as if I’m not here. Please ask me a direct question!”

Nobody put a hand up.
