Suicide by Robot - Extract
The crash at Dead River.
Isaac would be royally pissed. Tango Foxtrot Bananas. He’s dead, I’m not… probably. At least Rob would understand. He probably has a rueful smile.

seeing all the possibilities. How could I? How could anyone? So back to my problem - how to terminate my life under my terms.
