To pass the numerous days until you get off this island, you decide to volunteer at the adoption center, teaching English classes. As your students come in for the first day of class, you listen in on their conversation:
StudentOne: Wonderful! Just what we needed! Another riot in New Ginza. Geez.
StudentTwo: Shock guards. Plasma fields. This is asinine. How's a person supposed to get to school?
StudentOne: It's sick...simply sick. The agitators never learn.
StudentTwo: If I've got to hire a hovercab because of these idiots...ack! Blasted bolshevik bastards. Guess I'll just do a little studying while I'm waiting.
