    So many choices! Too difficult!

    Question: When did the Ionians and the Coruscantians invent the bicycle? And do they have a neverending thread about them?

    It is a trick question. The correct answer is Gfflauvbnaunntym, on the Jupiter moon of Io, however, the year is 2247. This is a re-creation of an ancient piece of architecture from the mother planet.

    Yes, yes! Now I know why I was confused - I thought the year was 2147. Hmmph. What do I know?

    Oops. Didn't notice that it was one of the choices, or even that there were choices. Was feeling so smug that I figured it out. Anyway, Io isn't that sunny.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    it's the city from the tv show married with children, you know, when the fountain goes on in the beginning. The giant monument is of course a spaceship which landed for tourism.
