Wait, did I miss something, or is humanity now destined to overpopulate and run out of food because Godzilla and friends messed up the experiments?

Style, that's the thing. Do it with panache.

Browns makes the best boots, but they're ugly. If one wanted to change the situation, one would need to blend with the Kowloon ship traffic, like so. Then slip into their factory control, like so. One would--oops! avoid those cameras, perhaps by (carefully) walking across the beam they hang from. Then update the design... and everyone gets nicer boots. With (ding!) a special delivery for oneself.

Aways with panache.

"There's not enough room in the bunker for us and his new family. He knows that."

"But it's gotten dangerous out there! When we were his age, chain twisters and hurricane trains didn't even exist. What if they take the bunker and we go on the road?"

"I suggested that. He wouldn't hear of it. He said we wouldn't stand a chance out there. She grew up as a New Nomad. She knows how to dodge the weather. It scares me, too, but they'll be ok."

"No, I'm not going to tell a campfire story. I'm an axe. I chop things. That's what I do. That's all I do, and I'm very good at it. I might be a magic axe, but that just makes me better at chopping. You want a story? Ask your smart phone. You can get them to do anything for a few coppers."

When Toothbrush was old enough, Modem Song took him to see the spirit casks.

"The Old Tribe made spirits work for them. There, in the white tower. Then they put them in these casks. The spirits are still angry--feel the warmth? They give anyone who gets too close strange diseases. This symbol is an Old Tribe warning. There's good hunting here in the winter, but don't go near the casks."

"How long will they stay angry?"

"Thousands of years? Who can say."

Basically, I'm in solitary for the duration. (Don't never piss off no warden.) I'd be crazy if I hadn't found the gate.

It's in the cell, but you can only see it from certain angles. Go wherever you want; time stops while you're gone. Stay too long, it'll yoink you back.

I got no money 'cept what I can make on day job, so I'm "on a budget," but it keeps me sane while I'm doing time. Even if the clock stops while I'm gone.

The view from our hotel room was delightful this afternoon. Yesterday, the sky was grey, cloud-filled. But today, the sun and blue sky emerged.

@biped808 Sorry for the grayness! We have May gray and June gloom, but they're kind of like our climate control: they (and the ocean the leads to them) keep the temperature moderate instead of desert-like extremes.

Sometimes the moon's so big and close you feel like you could touch it, you know?

Thing is, you can.

I tried once. First I touched it. Then I tried stepping over, but it was too hot and cold all at the same time.

So I wrapped myself up in a bunch of space blankets, the shiny kind, and got some good boots, and tried again.

It worked.

I could walk around up there.

So if you look at the moon and see something shiny, it's me. Wave, and I'll wave back.

I'm an Earth-head. Always have been. So 40 years ago I figured I'd try to trade with them, maybe score a Walkman. I painted the saucer like one of their shuttles and snuck into their spaceport.

As soon as I landed, they came boiling out, and they looked mad. I jumped back in and took off. Then I realized I'd dropped my phone.

Today I see a native on a phone that looks like mine. I guess they reverse-engineered it. I sure hope they don't figure out the AI part.

"Have you seen my arm?"

"It's not with your other parts?"

"Find My Body Parts says it's around here somewhere. What a pain! The world's gone virtual. Why do we still have to vote in person?"

"They were worried about vote fraud. You could skip it."

"After the Great Mess? No way."

"Found it!"

"Where was it?"

"On the table, thumbs-up, with an 'I Voted' sticker."

"There's a force field. No-one can get near it."

"Yeah, I know. Even 'People' said that."

"I want to see it."

"Why go see a used car?"

"Huh?"

"It's like a parked car with a 'For Sale' sign. UFO for sale."

At some point a civilization figured out, first, that they were alone with no one to talk to, and second, that other civilizations were more likely to appear if there was a spacetime.

So they created it.
