However, all of his dreams come to an abrupt end when Lisa is taken from him by a drunk driver. Distraught and devoid of a reason to live, Mark contemplates suicide.

While in Japan, his luck drastically changes, and everything starts to go right for him. Unfortunately, his new-found luck seems to be coming at the expense of those around him. His investigation into this phenomenon puts him in the middle of a dangerous criminal conspiracy where he must contend with everything from the Yakuza to a sassy teenage girl with a penchant for role-playing.
Meanwhile, Bobford3 assembles a new crew of three talented but eccentric scientists to help him with his latest idea, one that will prove to revolutionize the world if it does not end it first.
Calvin Jones is back again in this long-overdue sequel to Zero Calvin. Once again he has been revived by the gang at Bobcorp3, and once again he must continue to adapt to his strange new life in the future.
Unfortunately, nothing is ever so straightforward in Calvins life and he soon finds himself involved in a complicated love square with Tarpa and two newly-revived cryogenic patients. To add to the complications, these two patients are part of a new program by Bobcorp3 to use a section of the brain to directly interface with the Ariel system.
But all new technologies have a few glitches.
Now Calvin gets his chance to earn back some karma by saving the Ariel system from the side effects of this glitchy new program - if only his girlfriend were not one of those glitches.
But every society has its peculiarities.
This one happens to be governed by an artificial intelligence named Ariel. Using Ariel, this society has been able to identify its stupid, lazy, or otherwise detrimental individuals — and kill them. The result is a civilization of intelligent, hardworking inhabitants — except for Calvin.
Will Calvin be able to adapt to his new surroundings, or will the learning curve be too steep for him to survive?
