Imagery:

"I AM A BOMB. I AM SET TO EXPLODE IN THREE HUNDRED TIME INTERVALS. *BEEP* THIS MARKS THE BEGINNING OF A TIME INTERVAL. THERE ARE TWO HUNDRED NINETY-NINE TO GO. I AM A BOMB. I AM SET TO EXPLODE IN THREE HUNDRED TIME INTERVALS. *BEEP* THERE ARE TWO HUNDRED NINETY-EIGHT TIME INTERVALS TO GO."

"An older man snickered. 'I'd say [Killeen] don't know enough to pour piss outta a boot with a hole in the toe and directions writ on the heel"'

"[Monisque] arched an eyebrow. 'There are more slippery Lane-vectors than you have hairs on your body, Cap'n - and they curl more than yours, too.' The audience laughed, but no Bishops. Killeen's mouth tightened and he sent on closed comm 'she can't see my really curly ones - and not damn likely she will.' To this the Bishops answered with a volley of hoots and snickers. The dwarves looked puzzled, as if trying to decide whether they'd been insulted."
