Heisenberg's Uncertainty Legislation

Post by Scattercat » Mon Nov 15, 2010 1:50 am

The ship stopped automatically when the TDHiP signal bumped it out of subspace into the nearest empty zone. The red and blue lights flashed as the second ship docked and extended an airlock.

"Can you guess why I pulled you over?" the officer asked once the secure ship-to-ship link had been created.

"No, sir," Sheraton gulped.

"Mm-hm. Do you know where you were going?"

"Yessir. Andromeda, coordinates 3178.1543.0659," Sheraton said.

The policeman's face never moved. "I see. Well, enjoy your speeding ticket."

Enraged, Sheraton sputtered, "I'll dispute this!"

"I'd like to see you try," the cop laughed as he disconnected.

But... but... sputter...

I shouldn't be surprised. Divorce courts operate along pretty much the same principles.

It's funny 'cause it's true!

Another Scattercat drabble which packs a ton of worldbuilding into a small spoonful. Nice one!
