‘Hmm. More trouble.’

‘Same as always, Geoff’

‘I never really liked the daily news. It’s not like we can do anything about this situation anyway.’

‘Give me the chip bowl.’

‘Ok’

‘God damn it Geoff you ate all the chips again’

‘Meh. There’s this stuff at the border, but it’s not like anyone is going to actually attack us. The worst threat to me right now is a lack of snack foods. Ever since Khan instituted that trade embargo we’re stuck eating this crap.’

“Visit your local recruiting station to enlist. This message payed for by the Imperial Balkania Reserve Commission. For a new world.”

‘For new wars.’
