Axel_Chimeric@FreeRangeDarkcast[br][hr] As a wise man once said, "A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere." That has nothing to do with the topic at hand, but he's famous, so it really doesn't matter. Something happens when you spend most of your time in a decades-old tin can orbiting a red world around 225 million kilometers from the place you were born: Rocket Man ceases to be in the least bit enjoyable as a song. You also end up realizing that, after you've orbited a few thousand times, you want to do other things. As your friendly eye-in-the-sky, fishing for important tidbits of news of world-shattering importance, I naturally come across details on celebrities. Yes, we can figure out ways to transfer our minds between bodies, travel to other worlds, and survive the apocalypse, but we still like to learn about some mere mortal, like any of us, had for breakfast because his personal gift is pretending to be a gun-toting stoic for the cameras. Me? Bitter? Oh, goslings, you misunderstand. We all have our favourites; they're just the people who do the things that amuse you the most. They only become celebrities when enough people admire them. They are the nuclear pile, you the neutrons firing that eventually make them go critical, until their own fame propels them to even greater fame. So, dear-hearts, which particular piece of cultural fissile material do you cling to? Why? What particular trends do you follow? If I were to write down a little book on your life (oh, the things we can do with nano-technology; I have the entire English dictionary written on the sole of my right foot, because my neighbour doesn't know to activate the hermetic seals on his door when he takes Buzz), and I were writing under Interests, just whose names would I be printing? Or maybe you want to be celebrities yourselves? How will you do that, hm? Any notable failures to report? Be honest, goslings. "Actors" and "actresses" like King Flagpole and Venus de Venus didn't become household names because of their winning smiles.
