    I’m reading a science fiction series by Craig Alanson. The series is Expeditionary Force, and this is book 2, Spec Ops.

    Here is exchange between the protagonist, Joe and a mega-AI, Skippy.
    ———————
    I shook my head. “Skippy, you need to do a better job selling your ideas.”

    “Selling? Think about this, Joe, this could be your one big chance to achieve Florida man status.” “Florida?” I asked, puzzled, “I’m from Maine, dumbass.”

    “No,” he said with an exasperated sigh, “I mean the classic Florida Man, like in the headlines. You know, ‘Florida man eaten by pet alligator’, or “Florida man, drunk, crashes car into police station’, or ‘Florida man, naked, runs-”

    “We get the idea, Skippy. Fine, what are our odds without this plan?”
    ————————
    Made me think of this thread!

    Love that series. The play between Joe and Skippy is hilarious.
