The Next Garbage Scow

My great-great-great-great-grandfather was part of NASA , and was part of the team that discovered the Electical Chemical Helio MacroRocket. Yes, it sounds impressive, but all it really did was… well, you know those tiny devices on the BladeCycles that fire the pistons. Well the MacroRocket protects against fungus germination in those. That’s about all it was good for.
In your time, it would cost about three dollars and fifteen cents for a twelve pack. And they fell off frequently, so most of the hardcore chopper freaks gave them only a scarce thought at the checkout counter when they were picking up a Frost-Fusion Generator (that was found by my great-great-great-great-grandfather’s boss, the progenitor of UltraTech Industries).
So I find it very ironic now that I’m lugging a garbage scow that, according to my readouts, is 95.6% composed of Electical Chemical Helio MacroRockets.
My world has too much technobabble, that’s why I got this job.
