Hhmmm... What passes for singles in this universe?
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2012, 9:16 PM edit delete reply

more like a brothel/strip joint/bar.. and hotel.. :D

I got the brothel/strip joint thing. Most strippers in the states take $1 single dollar bills as tips (or bigger notes). In this future, they probably have plastic credit cards or something....
cattservant 2nd Jul 2012, 11:53 PM edit delete reply

Card slots, maybe?

"Cred-Sticks" kind of rule out slots...

Edit: Having seen a cred-stick now in the Tech Pages, I'm not sure if you would be more or less popular giving tips in a strip club.

money in the wastes is handled by "grams" of metals " copper,silver,tin,gold,plat. cobalt " these are formed into bars from 1/2 inch by 1 inch by 3/4 if a inch thick
all the way to 5 kg bars. there are also "marks" used in roma, it uses paper and coins like the US does and "credits" carryed via a plastic "stick" called a cred-stick this banking system is supported and ran by Luna and the AIs but requires specialized equipment. ( see tech pages :> )

So would throwing money at the stage in the wasteland be a bad thing then?
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2012, 8:13 AM edit delete reply

Only if you hit the dancer :D metal bars hurt! and you will get a better look at the stage :D
CyberSkull 3rd Jul 2012, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

So… miss if you like them, bean them with money if you don't?

I guess even rotten fruit is worth too much to be wasted.

Dont ask what a tomato is worth >_< or a banana..

The wrong end of a very long supply line?

The bright center of Joleet society!

For some unaccountable reason I'm having a pronounced feeling of deja vu about this part of the story arc.
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2012, 4:35 AM edit delete reply

oh, hows that?
cattservant 3rd Jul 2012, 4:45 AM edit delete reply

And a happy Full Moon Tuesday to you!

When Rotter described the situation, I got a strong flash that I knew how the situation was going to develop. But maybe my neurons are just drying up! I'm standing by to see what the dialog is. Could well be a false echo on my part.

heheh - we shall see ..

Since i thought that CeCi has most of CentCom's information packed in her cute little head (which might explain why she's so flaky - no room for common sense), i'm surprised she doesn't know about strippers...
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2012, 9:43 AM edit delete reply

A lot of her data is "hidden" even from her - and released as needed. :D
cattservant 3rd Jul 2012, 4:08 PM edit delete reply

Hopefully she will get a few nanoseconds to process her 'new' information before action is required!

Leaving off here; can't wait to see what happens next. :D

Interesting how pay phones are found just about everywhere in the far future. These days, pay phones have just about disappeared from the face of the Earth. (I still can't believe they ripped them out of hospitals...)

Luna com nodes are common in the wastes .. and in some city states.. New Troy even has quite a few located in the trade quarters :D

The current system of smart mobile phones is based on a huge terrestrial network of cell phone towers spread all over the place, relying mostly on mains power, with UPS to cover outages. It depends on a high tech widespread civil society. In this universe, you have widely separated mutually hostile outposts in a very hostile environment including beasts that will eat cell phones towers for snacks. Makes more sense to have comms nodes in environmentally reasonably protected areas. Not to say hand held devices can't be used when in range of a pickup node - as per Lynns smartphone enroute to New Sparta - or have enough oomph to talk to a satellite direct.
