206. Radium Wine
Among synth-bound bio-conservatives, who are wealthy enough to afford affectations, but not wealthy enough to resleeve into biomorphs, finding normal human analogues to the particular maintenance of their synth bodies is an obsession. The use of metabolic chambers is particularly popular, as it allows for a form of eating. Radium wine allows synths to fuel themselves from a wine bottle instead of a pump, containing a mixture of radioactives (for nuclear batteries) and pure alcohol (as liquid fuel). It is commonly served at the bars of hot zones where synths congregate, but is often restricted in other places due to the dangers of it being accidentally drunk by biomorphs.
