(14:12)EntropicPhantom: I'm not sure how to react to this.
(14:14)SonjaOfTheMoon: By talking about something entirely unrelated. How's that local sports team doing at the sports games?
(14:14)EntropicPhantom: Well, Calhoun's out with an injured shoulder, and her backup pilot is nowhere near as sexy.
(14:14)SonjaOfTheMoon: This just in, Alex likes his women nerdy and covered in grease stains.
(14:15)EntropicPhantom: And Sonja likes her dudes with beards~
(14:15)SonjaOfTheMoon: Well, yeah.
I could grow a beard.
I could pour grease on my pants.
I think meta's rubbing off on us.
Gods neigh, going off that horse mask.
(14:18)SonjaOfTheMoon: So the weather's been nice and not related to my friends having awkward sex!
(14:18)EntropicPhantom: Moon weather?
(14:18)SonjaOfTheMoon: It's called changing the topic.
(14:19)EntropicPhantom: Pft, okay.
(14:20)EntropicPhantom: Have you been following the Iolanthe mission?
(14:21)SonjaOfTheMoon: The flux tube probe? It's an interesting idea, but I'm predicting catastrophic failure of the "go up in a fireball" variety when it hits the magnetosphere.
(14:22)EntropicPhantom: D: I hope not! I have a cousin on that ship...
(14:22)SonjaOfTheMoon: Wait, really?
(14:23)EntropicPhantom: Yeah. I... only found out quite recently - she's from that branch of the family.
(14:23)EntropicPhantom: Pretty cool regardless.
(14:23)SonjaOfTheMoon: Hey, you know I'm pessimistic about everything. Blame Dad.
(14:28)SonjaOfTheMoon: Do you ever wonder if we're moving too fast?
(14:28)EntropicPhantom: ...I don't think I follow, sorry.
(14:29)SonjaOfTheMoon: As- as a species. Look at- look at now vs. two centuries ago. That's nothing on cosmic terms, but-
(14:32)SonjaOfTheMoon: And- and it [censored] near killed us. Look at Russia. Look at gods-[censored]ed India. Why the HELL are we throwing ourselves into space? We're- we're irresponsible, Alex. Scientifically, culturally, historically...
(14:32)SonjaOfTheMoon: So projects like Iolanthe - they fascinate me, but I'm terrified of the future.
(14:35)EntropicPhantom: Wow. Okay, give me a moment to take this all in. You, uh, kinda caught me off guard with this topic...
(14:36)SonjaOfTheMoon: I guess you really are learning a lot about me today.
(14:36)SonjaOfTheMoon: Dad lost his parents on the Eisenhower.
(14:37)EntropicPhantom: D: Are you worried about a Gaian resurgence? Some other terrorist group?
(14:38)SonjaOfTheMoon: ...sort of.
(14:38)SonjaOfTheMoon: We still have no idea where the [censored] the Gaia movement came from, any competent socialigist will tell you that. How can we solve a problem we can't understand?
(14:40)EntropicPhantom: I don't know what to tell you. D: I mean, the UN's finally making progress on nuclear disarmanemt - I think we've learned something, at least.
(14:41)SonjaOfTheMoon: Not enough. I don't buy that the war'd have gone any differently without nukes. Terrorists are terrorists. No one's even tried to identify the root cause, let alone address it...
(14:42)SonjaOfTheMoon: I dunno, man.
