No, not literally. I mean, symbolically or something.

Hi, yeah, this is Ray Vecc--Kowalski, Chicago PD. If you want to report a crime in progress try 911 or the non-emergency line at the 27th. If you got a message for me about a case or, uh, like, a personal message, you can leave it here. Thanks.

Ray the technosavvy

...How does this thing--? Hey Fraser, how do I make this thing--? Oh wait, never mind, I got it.

All right, my mun girl person just saw these come up on her "flist," whatever that means, and now she's gotta have me post them here. This first one, this is me on the day with the eclipse and Marcus Ellery and me and Fraser hanging out in the crypt with those cigar smuggler guys and the crazy old lady. Gladys. Yeah. But this is the morning, when I was getting ready, getting my game face on to meet Ellery, so I don't know why you'd want to watch that.

But she says I look hot. So okay.

This is from the case with the pirates. And the ship that went down with us trapped on board, and the gold, and the world's smallest goddamn sub, and the sailing ship and Fraser shooting that gun off, one-two-three-four. Fraser and me are happy, because that's all over and we just decided we're gonna stay partners. We were fighting before. So that's why we're grinning like we're on something.

Man, we look like dorks.

Fraser's hair's all messy. Ha.
surely you jest
Uh, call me a sissy, but I kinda hope neither of these things come up. They aren't gonna, right?

I could survive for 1 minute, 44 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...

Deep Space Explorer

49% Intrigue, 68% Civilization, 56% Humanity, 55% Urbanization.

Hmm... You're a tough one to place. Your answers indicate that you like technology and education. You enjoy intrigue, adventure and chaos. You're fine with hard work and civilization. This all bodes well for an interesting, adventurous life.

What makes it difficult, however, is that you don't seem to be much of a 'people person.'

If you were more of a people person, we would have commissioned you aboard the Starship Enterprise. But since you don't care much for the complications of dealing with your fellow man... we have another deep-space mission, more tailored for your tastes... a way for you to enjoy the benefits of high-tech civilization without having to put up with civilization itself. Let's set you up to pursue the solo career of a deep space explorer. You can go ahead and hibernate through the boring parts of your mission, and not worry so much about being a few decades out of touch with your fellows by the time you get home. In fact, you pretty much don't have to deal with people at all, but you can still enjoy a high-flying adventure of a life. Far, far away from the madding crowd, you get to play with your scientific instruments, serve your glorious civilization, and do interesting things with strange discoveries in exotic places.

The career might work out all right. Look what it did for Charlton Heston.

I might be okay with the explorer thing if I can take Fraser. 'Cause there's no way I'm gonna know what to do with the scientific thingies.* There's probably no pizza in space, though, huh?

Fraser got the bad guy, no surprise there, and even if he'd had to fall down an abandoned mineshaft to do it he was Fraser, so of course when Ray yelled down after him he yelled back up that he was fine, just fine, Ray.

The trouble was, he was also still at the bottom of a mineshaft with an unconscious arms dealer, and now Ray was going to have to figure out how to get both of them back up into daylight and solid ground. Do you ever get the feeling that you're, you know, lost?Collapse )
