What would you do with a Slaver stasis box?

Suppose Slaver stasis boxes (TAS: "The Slaver Weapon") really existed. What would you do with one?

I can't think of many applications at the moment, but I'd probably use it to store highly perishable food.

Re: What would you do with a Slaver stasis box?

I can't find what the specific dimensions of those boxes were, and it makes a difference, because if it is big enough, my answer might be to clean up on some long-term investments. If it is the size I believe it to be, I'd probably be using it for a variant of your purpose: to get the kind of Cashew Chicken that can only be found in Springfield, Missouri (and within about 90 miles around there) down here to where I live in South Carolina.

It would replace my safe. I don't keep any money or jewels in it but I keep all my flash drives in it as well as important paperwork and pictures. My safe is fireproof but not waterproof. I think the slaver box would be the safest place for all my documents.

Re: What would you do with a Slaver stasis box?

Slaver stasis boxes come in various sizes, IIRC. I'd fill it with tv execs that said no the new sci-fi shows or canceled them. Then I'd launch it at the sun.

If I had had one around 2004, I would have stuffed it with as many bottles of Pepsi Blue as it would hold.

I really miss Pepsi Blue.

Couldn't you just use a regular box and a hammer to knock them out with?

I'd do what they did in Ringworld: Put a ship inside of it, and have it automatically activate when in imminent danger - virtual starship immortality (with time skips of a few billion years should one fall into a sun or something)

You'll be buying more of them and doing that a million times, since there are millions more of them than there are of sci-fi fans. And hundreds of them graduate from school every year.

If sci-fi fans want to make a change, they have to start getting involved in the industry by becoming executives at entertainment companies and also by becoming film and TV directors/writers/producers. Then, we'll see more sci-fi shows on TV.

As for what I want in said box, I'll put in anything important that I wanted to last a long time, like the Zip disks containing the copies of the websites I've surfed that I should have made back in the late '90s.
