    Here’s my take on the dialog. Frame six is the worst. I can’t make any sense out of line three. Maybe someone knowledgeable about the “flowing cups” reference can elucidate.

    #1:Marx: What a Talent! What a genius!

    #2:Marx: No one does being shot from a chimney like cracked cat. Look at that form!Alan: But he’s stuck up there…

    #3:Alan: If we can’t interact with anything, how do we get him down? We can’t even grab a ladder…Marx: A little trick of the trade…

    #4:Marx: There’s always one alternate reality at just the right angle to make a little short cut between point A and point B.

    #5: (none)

    #6: War1: Then shall our names familiar in the(?) mouth as(?) household words ??ttle, floo?once and wh?ppip? deadface and ?po bleedo and the mighty metal funter be in their flowing cups freely remember?

    #7: War2: And shall we atack their earlobes now go this upon the morn the fight shall make strong men tremble and weak men crumble

    #8: War2: Wh…

    #9: War1: …

    thru #14: (none)

    #15/16: Both: The sign of the flaming cat !!!

    John is acting like an jerk. Mike did nothing wrong and in fact has shown civic responsibility for peacefully protesting against a perceived wrong. Whether that perception was right or misplaced is immaterial. The fact remains that Mike acted on something that he believed in. That is more than john can claim. The only thing we’ve seen John believe in is his trains and his sports car.

    Visited a farm in New Zealand 10-20 years ago after the anti-tobacco movement had been in full swing. Instead of complaining they had switched from ~30 acre of tobacco to one half acre of flowers (which they shipped to Japan). They made more on the flowers than from the tobacco. Interesting country, BTW.

    Visiting Bend, OR in the 80’s, the people there told me they not only did not lock their doors but left the keys in their car so if a neighbor needed to borrow it they could. Don’t know how it is now.

    Don’t bother. And please don’t sully Niven’s name by putting them in the same sentence. After reading the synopsis of the book on Wikipedia, it is based on most ridiculous set of premises I have ever heard of. From the ludicrous idea that a carbon based entity could survive on the Sun, the author’s failure to grasp the size of the Sun’s surface, the lack of the author’s comprehension of simple physics of speed differentials of orbiting bodies, the actual almost total lack of interaction of matter with neutrinos, the absurd bafflegab of " mass–energy conversion via neutrinos", releasing methane from Antarctica(!), no comprehension of the vastness of space – it is twelve light years to Tau Ceti(!) … the list just goes on and on. This is worse than the worst bug-eyed-monster fiction of the 1930s! The sad part is that it apparently will be made into a movie and the typical scientifically uneducated public will accept it as reality. Movies have never been factually accurate but this is so bad it is angry making

    Amazing. Zonker actually has some pretty sound advice! Probably more to come.
