Wait, how CAN the Mind Shrub tell them how they can fix Ellie with just “Yes” or “No” responses? Man, it’s like learning surgery from a Magic 8 Ball!
“Should I use a saw?”
“Signs point to yes!”
“Are you sure? Wouldn’t a scalpel be better?”
“Don’t count on it!”
“Whatever you say, magic 8 ball.”
It’s like 20 questions. But even more so.
Maybe the mindshrub is a better source of food than wisdom! (Or maybe you have to shake it?!)
Just like shaking Polaroids, it probably doesn’t matter.
“Grandpa, what’s the funny webcomic man talking about?” “Kid, Polaroids were self-developing photographs back in the olden days. Everybody would shake them so they would develop faster, even though it didn’t really help. It was amazing – You could see your picture only 10 minutes after you took it! Hey, don’t roll your eyes at me like that, kid! My generation built an artificially intelligent robot and sent her to a planet around another star! What’s yours done? You don’t even have a space shuttle! Hmmph!”
Well, at least when they they don’t have to shake it after every question.
True, but that would have been funnier.
