At the office, a ‘task force’ has been created to tackle one of our more ambitious goals. I have been chosen to represent the ‘ones and zeros’ aspect of the group and, ostensibly, to provide rapt attention to aspects of the group’s function which others within the group may miss as an effect of being consistently productive; aspects like the name of the group, the group’s wrist/armbands and any secret encoded languages we may need and those gadgets we may, in turn, need to cipher/decipher them.
I have named our elite team of ninjas, “The RedShift”; named so after the Hubble method of measuring the expansion of the universe (or any other trigonometric parallax for that matter). The idea, of course, being that we will measurably expand as a direct result of our efforts. That and the fact that there is a Half-Life expansion called “Blue Shift” into which I have lost many long hours of my past.
The rest is in the works. I imagine an enigma type device operated by a troop of trained monkeys whose brains have been replaced by hamsters and who have been trained to respond only to differently inflected versions of the phrase ‘Chuck Norris’.
What do YOU think?
