When the Machines Abducted Lance

Pierce's realization that Lance had been abducted by the machines


I was abducted by the machines, and it was all caught on iChat

I was filming a new product video for a barcode scanner at work.  It was a fun time, being a one-man cast and crew, and chatting with Pierce between takes.  Then things got weird.  Pierce tells me I was abducted by the machines.  I don’t have much recollection of the events, but iChat has the haunting evidence.

It all started with some innocent laughter.  I was in the middle of a take, filming myself scanning a demo barcode.  When went back to my computer after I had finished, I saw that I had left my iChat open, meaning every time I scanned a barcode it entered into iChat.  Oops?  Pierce and I laughed about it.  A lot.  And that’s the last thing I remember…

So apparently while Pierce was battling with the machines from the outside, I was doing the same from the other side, trying to break free.  I was at least able to send Pierce a message through file transfer.  Pierce understood the urgency of the message and stepped up his threats, but this only made the machines upset.  He received an ominous video chat invitation…
