"In the beginning, the world was beautiful. The skies were clear, and the plains were sprawling and -"
"Sprawling is very big and wide, now let -"
"Like the dome?"
"Yes, kind of like the dome. Now, would you let me finish?"

"Oh, yes. The plains were sprawling and the oceans were as deep as the mountains were tall. There were...what the hell are you doing?"
"I'm raising my hand."
"Why in bloody hell are you doing that?"
"It's what we do in class when we want to ask a question."

"A mountain is a really tall hill, and the ocean was a huge lake, big enough to span most of the Earth."

Some say that money lost its worth and the economy collapsed, sending the world into chaos. Some say that the old religions caused a world war so large that it blotted out life all over. Some say that the Moon and the Sun had a fight and the Sun won, and it scorched all life off of Earth. Others say this is the Gods' punishment for losing faith."
"What do you believe?"
"Kid, I just don't know anymore."
