Corporate Debauchery
Gordon snickered as he stared into the spotless mirror of opinion, observing what was happening behind him. His colleagues were wreaking havoc in the lavish corporate bathroom of his prestigious investment firm, Herbert Dean Capital.
Here, the bathrooms played a vital role in the function of the company. Sauvé, sophisticated bankers would walk in, tired from the day’s work, and emerge minutes later, fiercely pounding their chests, with a fine, snowy powder sitting elegantly below their nostrils.
Gordon was devout on separating himself from this debauchery; but it seemed as if sobriety was strictly prohibited inside the walls of Herbert Dean.
Smiling infectiously at his coworkers, he strolled out of the bathroom, gesturing goodbye as he entered the elevator.

Gordon knew the intelligent quantum machine from its processor to its memory, he had an innate knowledge of every neuron in its network, every pipeline in its array; after all he helped design it.
Looking out from the window, he in awe of the unremarkable landscape, punctuated by a skyline of grey towers – rising and falling indefinitely into the faint horizon. But the serene evening atmosphere didn’t last.
Suddenly, the building’s power went out; at first, Gordon saw nothing of it.
But once he saw a scrawny engineer bolting out of the building, with the grace and coordination of a headless chicken, he instinctively pulled his out phone to check on the markets. It seemed to be malfunctioning; every share was priced at zero. His company had a live feed of the markets,...
