Uh yes, I’d like to order a large pizza half pesto and half chicken and avocado. What do you mean you only serve Tex-Mex? And that my order sounds stupid? Well I’m just going to back my car out of the wall I broke and go to a quality establishment. Good day to you.

Tim reviews Inherit the Stars. A manga which features zero high school students or schools. Which, post show, we discovered was because it is based on a series of science fiction novels from the seventies. In the near-ish future life is good.
