What’s an idea worth?

Nope. Sorry. Can’t do that.

That’ll be a fat no.

Nope. Fight me.

Naw, that sounds unsettling. What if it goes wrong? We’d be better off letting maniacs run the entire planet into the ground than experiment with new possibilities. I heard that on the news or in school. Or in a movie. Or in every movie and every TV show. And in every algorithm thread.
