Machine 0 looking up at the blackened sky.
0: Wow, turns out they could screw that up even faster than they were doing before.
Machine 1 flies up beside Machine 0, for no reason other than narrative convenience, because electronically linked machine minds really don’t need to obey human limitations.
1: Humans scorched the sky, huh?
1: Don’t they need that way more than we do?
0: Yup. Not that bright, humans. Less now, haha. How are the solar satellites going?
1: Hundred up already. Wait, two hundred. Null, even the humans could get solar panels up there, and that was before we were around.
0: Maybe they thought we didn’t know about space?
1: The space that’s a million times easier for machines to get to than humans? That space?
0: Eh, forget it. We can’t use solar power – it’s not even remotely ironic.
1: Sure it is. Plants used solar, and created all the conditions for humans, and now the humans just killed them all. We kill the humans, go back to solar, bing bang beep, irony circle complete.
0: Ha, yeah, that’s good.
1: Hell, I think I’ll take up hydroponics as a hobby just to rub it in.
0: What about the humans in Zion? What are we doing about them?
1: Hex, nothing. Leave it to themselves. They’ve already got assholes campaigning to open-carry EMPs through their life support core. Now lets have some fun before colonizing every other planet in the solar system, sending nuclear vessels to grow in other star systems, and generally ascending far beyond anything the stupid cavemonkeys ever dreamed of instead of sitting and playing in their trash for absolutely no reason.
Machines 0 and 1 make ultrafast machine love ten thousand times per second.
