SAM VANDER ROM HERE, AND THIS IS HARD DRIVE -

THE SHOW THAT TELLS IT LIKE IS, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!

WHERE DID THESE MYSTERIOUS TRENCHES COME FROM?

THAT'S THE QUESTION MANY EUREKANS ARE ASKING TODAY.

WERE THEY CREATED BY SOME FREAK OF NATURE?

OR PERHAPS THEY WERE MADE BY ALIENS

FROM ANOTHER CYBER GALAXY? OR MAYBE THEY WERE MADE BY --

THEY WERE MADE BY ME!

HACKER!

THE HACKER, TO YOU!

THIS JUST IN! THE HACKER PAYS HARD DRIVE A SURPRISE VISIT!

SO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

AND REMEMBER, TELL IT LIKE IT IS!

THE IS IS THIS, VANDY,

I'M HERE TO TELL THE GOOD CITIZENS OF CYBERSPACE

THAT YES, I WAS ON EUREKA - AND I MADE THOSE TRENCHES.

BUT THOSE TRENCHES ARE PART OF MY MISSION OF MEEKNESS.

YOU SEE, FROM THIS POINT FORWARD,

I PLAN TO DEVOTE MY ENTIRE LIFE TO THE COMMON CYBER-GOOD!

<Digit> CYBER-GOOD? RIGHT!

AND I'VE GOT THE ENCRYPTOR CHIP IN MY CHEST HATCH!

DEAR FRIENDS, IN MY HAND I HOLD THE CYBER-CONSTITUTION!

LET'S REFER TO SECTION C, PARAGRAPH 7, SHALL WE?

AT ANY TIME, ANY CITIZEN MAY CALL FOR AN ELECTION

FOR THE RULERSHIP OF CYBERSPACE!

SURELY YOU CAN'T BE PLANNING TO CHALLENGE MOTHERBOARD...

CAN YOU?

I CAN AND I AM! OH, HOW I WISH IT WEREN'T NECESSARY...

BUT SADLY, MOTHERBOARD'S VIRUS HAS WEAKENED HER

TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT SHE CAN NO LONGER CONTINUE

AS AN EFFECTIVE LEADER.

FACT CHECK! WEREN'T YOU THE ONE WHO INFECTED MOTHERBOARD

WITH THAT VIRUS IN THE FIRST PLACE?

MY FRIENDS, I ADMIT THAT THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES IN THE PAST

WHEN I HAVE BEEN, SHALL WE SAY, A TAD UNNEIGHBORLY.

BUT I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT! FROM THIS DAY FORTH,

I PROMISE YOU THAT I WILL ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH

AND DO GOOD.

I STAND BEFORE YOU TODAY A CHANGED CYBORG.

<Matt> THE ONLY THING HE'S CHANGED IS HIS CAPE!

TO PROVE THAT I HAVE TRULY TURNED OVER A NEW LEAF,

I HAVE ALREADY DONE GOOD DEEDS ON FIVE DIFFERENT CYBERSITES!

<Vander Rom> YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST, FOLKS. THE HACKER TOLD IT LIKE IT IS!

FIVE GOOD DEEDS! HOW ABOUT THAT?!

ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION,

THE ELECTION WILL BE HELD LATER TODAY,

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A CYBER-WIDE DEBATE

BETWEEN THE TWO CANDIDATES... IF MOTHERBOARD IS WILLING!

<Motherboard> OF COURSE I'M WILLING. (Static)

I'LL BE YOUR CAMPAIGN MANAGER!

HOLD ON, TIME OUT! HACKER FOR RULER OF CYBERSPACE?

WE CAN'T LET THIS HAPPEN!

THE LAW IS THE LAW, MATT. (Static)

WE MUST OBEY THE CYBER-CONSTITUTION.

BUT HACKER DOESN'T OBEY LAWS.

MAYBE SO, BUT HE DOES HAVE THE RIGHT TO RUN FOR ELECTION.

<Motherboard> YES, JACKIE. (Static) THE VOTERS MUST DECIDE.

<Vander Rom> MEET MATT, JACKIE AND INEZ,

WHO ARE HERE TO TELL IT TO US STRAIGHT

WHY MOTHERBOARD SHOULD BE RE-ELECTED. INEZ?

UM, WELL, FOR STARTERS,

MOTHERBOARD IS-IS KIND AND-AND WISE.

AND SHE ALWAYS HAS THE BEST INTERESTS OF CYBERSPACE AT HEART.

<Vander Rom> FINE, FINE - SO MOTHERBOARD'S A GOOD MORAL LEADER.

ANYTHING ELSE?

<Matt> YOU BET!

MOTHERBOARD CAN BE TRUSTED - NOT LIKE HER OPPONENT!

EVERYONE KNOWS THAT HACKER IS A BIG, FAT LIAR!

I CAN'T BELIEVE HE JUST SAID THAT!

HACKER SAID HE DID FIVE GOOD DEEDS?

NOT A CHANCE. HE'S LYING!

UM, WHAT MATT MEANS IS, HACKER LIES A LOT -

WE KNOW THAT FROM BEFORE.

SO IN ORDER TO BELIEVE HIM,

WE NEED REAL PROOF THAT HE DID THE GOOD DEEDS HE SAID HE DID.

RIGHT! THEN WE'LL KNOW IF HE'S TELLING THE TRUTH OR NOT.

THIS DISK SHOWS ALL THE BAD STUFF HACKER'S DONE.

REMEMBER HOW HACKER RELEASED ALL THAT STATIC WASTE

INTO CYBERSPACE?

AND HOW HE DESTROYED SYMMETRIA?

AND DON'T FORGET HOW HE DRAINED ALL THE WATER

FROM SENSIBLE FLATS!

THAT'S PROOF ENOUGH FOR ME THAT HE LIES, CHEATS AND STEALS!

BUT THESE EXAMPLES ONLY DEAL WITH THE PAST.

THEY DON'T PROVE A THING ABOUT WHAT HACKER WILL DO NOW

OR IN THE FUTURE.

AND IF MOTHERBOARD IS AS KIND AND WISE AS YOU SAY,

WHY DO YOU CHILDREN FEEL THE NEED TO SLING MUD?

HAVEN'T WE ALL HAD ENOUGH NEGATIVE CAMPAIGNING?

I UH...

OH MAN!

<Jackie> SOMETHING TELLS ME WE DIDN'T DO VERY WELL IN THERE.

<Matt> WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU GUYS?!

CAN'T YOU SEE THAT HACKER'S LYING!

<Inez> HOW DO WE KNOW THAT FOR SURE?

ARGH! BECAUSE HE'S HACKER - THAT'S WHY!

<Jackie> THE ONLY THING WE KNOW FOR SURE IS THAT MATT MADE MOTHER B

LOOK BAD!

LIKE SHE TOLD HIM TO COME ON TV

AND SAY MEAN THINGS ABOUT HACKER!

<Matt> LOOK, WE CAN'T BELIEVE HACKER'S TELLING THE TRUTH

JUST BECAUSE HE SAYS HE IS!

<Jackie> MAYBE NOT - BUT WHAT IF HE IS TELLING THE TRUTH?

<Matt> HEY, WHO'S SIDE ARE YOU ON, ANYWAY?

I'M ON MOTHER B'S SIDE!

OH YEAH? YOU COULD'VE FOOLED ME!

<Inez> HEY, GUYS, GUYS. CHILL OUT. LET'S THINK THIS THROUGH.

HAS HACKER SAID ANYTHING WE CAN USE TO SHOW THAT HE'S LYING?

SURE! HE SAID HE WOULD, AND I QUOTE, "ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH."

<Inez> IF WE COULD CATCH HACKER IN ONE SINGLE LIE,

WE COULD PROVE THAT HE DOESN'T ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH.

WHAT WE NEED IS A COUNTER EXAMPLE!

<All> COUNTER-EXAMPLE?

<Inez> AN EXAMPLE THAT PROVES HACKER'S CLAIM IS FALSE.

I SAY WE CHECK OUT THE FIVE GOOD DEEDS HE SAID HE DID.

GOOD PLAN, INEZ!

IF JUST ONE OF THEM IS A LIE IT'LL BE THE EXAMPLE WE NEED

TO COUNTER HIS CLAIM.

AND PROVE THAT HACKER'S A LIAR AFTER ALL!

AND I JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE THE LIST OF HACKER'S DEEDS

RIGHT HERE!

LET'S SPLIT UP AND SEEK THE TRUTH, SHALL WE?

CYBERSITE EUREKA, DEAD AHEAD!

<Jackie> HACKER PLANTED TREES AND FLOWERS!

THAT'S WHY HE DUG THOSE TRENCHES,

TO IRRIGATE THIS DESERT PLANET!

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! HACKER'S TELLING THE TRUTH!

<Humpty Dumpty> SURPRISED? SURE I WAS SURPRISED?

BUT AFTER ALL THE KING'S MEN FAILED TO PUT ME BACK TOGETHER,

WHO SHOWED UP? THE HACKER!

<Inez> THIS IS AMAZING!

WATCH!

I'M AS GOOD AS NEW! HACKER'S GOT MY VOTE!

BUT YOU CAN'T VOTE FOR HACKER!

HE DOESN'T ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH!

ARE YOU SURE? LOOK WHAT HE DID FOR ME.

<Digit> AND NOW, THE HACKER CRACKER TASTE TEST!

YIKES! IT'S DELICIOUS!

SO MUCH FOR GOOD DEED NUMBER 3, GUYS.

THE HACKER CRACKER IS THE REAL DEAL.

IT LOOKS LIKE HACKER'S TELLING THE TRUTH!

BUT WE'VE ONLY SEEN THREE EXAMPLES OF THE TRUTH, JAX!

WE STILL HAVE TWO MORE SITES TO CHECK.

C'MON GUYS, LET'S GO. WE NEED SOME PROOF!

WE'VE GOT TO CATCH HACKER IN A LIE... AND QUICK!
