The year is 2386, and your family has saved up to go on a space cruise on the G.E Betilimius. You, being a bored and sultry teenager, wish you could just stay home and make filters all day. You beg and you bribe, but your parents wont give in to your inept trickery. You board the ship with a most downcast attitude, and delve into boredom, and eventually fall asleep. A few hours later your little sister wakes you up by giving you the WETTEST wet-willy you've experienced. You are about to yell at her, but then you look outside a window (a passing glance) and see Syrilax, a planet home to just under 3 billion Werbins, seemingly frozen in time in front of a the Qui Nebula. Your anger melts away and your eyes glaze over as your visual stimulus is being treated to the most deluxe package of beauty they have ever had the chance to experience. You can't wait to go next year.
