The machine had been invenTed a few years ago:
a machine that could tell, rom just a sample o your blood, how you weregoing to die. It didn’t give you the date and it didn’t give you specifcs. It justspat out a sliver o paper upon which were printed, in careul block letters,the words “DROWNED” or “CANCER” or “OLD AGE” or “CHOKED ON A HAND-FUL OF POPCORN.” It let people know how they were going to die.And it was rustratingly vague in its predictions: dark, and seeminglydelighting in the ambiguities o language. “OLD AGE,” it turned out, couldmean either dying o natural causes or being shot by a bedridden man in abotched home invasion. The machine captured that old-world sense o ironyin death: you can know how it’s going to happen, but you’ll still be surprisedwhen it does.We tested it beore announcing it to the world, but testing tooktime—too much, since we had to wait or people to die. Ater our years hadgone by and three people had died as the machine predicted, we shipped itout the door. There were now machines in every doctor’s ofce and in boothsat the mall. You could pay someone or you could probably get it done or ree,but the result was the same no matter what machine you went to. They were,at least, consistent.
