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.

Ahhhhhh!

Thankfully, I see mid-20th century, space-age Soviet architectural hyberbole is not dead!

Now what to do with Block 37????? ;-)

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

Obviously its Ashkhabad, Turkmenistan

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.

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.
