Worth

So, you know that place where (after you die) they'll take your preserved brain, and put it in a giant walking warbot at? I turned in an application, and got accepted.

"We mostly only accept people who've won a Nobel, Fullbright, Grammy or Pulitzer, but somehow your high scores at BurgerTime in 1984 qualified you. Weird loophole. Long story."

At the in-person interview, though, I had to defer.

"Give it to Gregory Watson, the architect of the 27th Amendment. It was passed in 1789 and ratified in 1992. Watson's the guy who got it ratified, and it started as a class paper when he was 20. He got a C for the paper. He works as a Texan law clerk, and works three jobs now just to stay alive. He deserves the warbot more than I do," I said.

"Yeah, but can he play BurgerTime?"
