Steps to reproduce–
Give your character the “internal furnace” bionic.
Eat a “USB drive with misc software”.
The message will read, "You eat your misc software."
The USB drive will remain in your inventory. Your character has just eaten the data from a USB drive, leaving the drive itself untouched. Somehow.
Actually, this makes me think of a REALLY old educational game (like Apple II old) where you played as this little guy who had to run around a screen eating numbers to solve math problems. I think it was called “Number Munchers” or something.
