002; rude questions [video/action]

Ladies and gentlemen of the Tranquility, good evening.

[From the video, you can see Albert is seated somewhere in the oxygen gardens, on a wide-open patch of grass. He looks somewhat contemplative.]

I have a-- a somewhat personal question to ask of you all, so don't feel compelled to answer if you don't wish to. [He seems to hesitate, and then he plunges ahead quickly, as if he must ask it before he loses courage.]

How many of you here believed yourselves to have passed away before you woke up in this place?

And-- for those of you who don't want to talk about something quite so morbid, maybe you could tell me what year, or what country, or planet you come from. I'd... really like to hear about other people's homes. As for me-- I'm from Paris, France, the year 5053.

I've also got some tea and plenty of cups to go around here in the garden, if you'd prefer to speak in person. I'd welcome the company, and the chance to meet all of you.

[For someone who remembered waking up in a morgue before a gravity couch, Rey has a different idea on what could be considered a morbid question.

[But that's hardly her concern. Instead:]
Wouldn't have pegged Paris for lasting that long.

["Not anymore," she's actually almost about to say. But then...

[Well. There's a 2900-year difference between them that entails something else.]


Since when?

Where I come from, history is an important thing to remember.

To learn from our predecessors, I imagine.

What people have done for a long time -- kill and ruin.

Perhaps. For many with power, however, it is.

[...Yeah, Rey has gotten very familiar with that look.]

You are one of those optimistic types, aren't you?
circumitus: I have big plans. I'm learning spanish this month. (i need an office)

Not necessarily, though it can be.

That isn't technically a bad thing -- not always. Though being ignorant of both sides at the same time is a different story, oftentimes with an unhappy ending.

[In other words, "Free country ship, bro. Whatever makes you happy."]
