Earthbound Link To Palm Springs

Characters: me, man

I was in a rather lucid state, where my awareness of my location was very high. I recounted where I was, accurately--to someone in an office.
me: "I'm in Palm Springs California, at a place called the Knight's Inn. That's spelled K N I G H T'S I N N. I'm in room 26. If you need to get in touch with me, get an Earthbound link and call them."
This was true. It was a particularly low-end hotel, even by my standards.
Someone picked up a phone and when they did, an alarm went off.
me: (sighing) "Oh, crap."
I paced while the building seemed to get into a frenzy. A non-frenzied man got off of an elevator and approached me. I decided to try being friendly.
me: (extending hand) "I'm going to guess you're looking for me."
He reached out and shook my hand, and started walking me out.
me: "Look, I'm going to wake up anyway. You don't have to attack me. Just wait a few minutes, we'll talk and hang out--I'll be out of your hair before you know it."
man: "We have only the best interest in your development as a being."
He seemed to reach around my back and inject me with a thing, as per usual.
me: (furious) "Dammit! I swear...well if you're 'developing' me then be warned, this treatment is only going to make me madder once I am developed. And I'll be coming back for you with more than just injections."
When I awoke I just sort of had a weird vision. Though hard to call it a vision. It was knowledge of a report about a widely circulated stock photo of a baby making a lewd drawing of some kind. It had caused an issue about the parents of the baby. The origin of the photo was traced, and discovered that this photo from a stock photo site had originated on another stock photo site, and the drawing had been faked in.
This is fairly common these days, as I just saw a picture of fake toy-company logo tattoo jobs on babies. It's becoming par for the course for people to be outraged by faked photos--no machine learning needed to fool the average idiot.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
