"Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education."

- Russell, Bertrand


<What did I do now>? Specifically directed information interrogative and annoyance

<I want some answers from you, QyQy>  Imperative directive, deliberate neglect, and gravity

<About>?  Elliptical interrogative and dismissive boredom

<Explain all these outrageous energy expenditures on the logs>  Imperative directive and suspicion

<…>  Contempt

<Well>?  Elliptical interrogative, tested tolerance, imbedded warning

<Am I supposed to say something>?  Interrogative, smugness, and disinterest

<You are damned well aware>!  Critical declaration, imbedded, imputed warning, and anger

<I have to put ‘Caraway' through operations constantly because he keeps breaking out>  Preplanned explanation, wishful thinking, declaration of self-exculpation

<At the cost of compromising the mission when you cause electrical shorts all over this city>?  Derisive rhetorical question, implied, imputed warning, and intimated challenge

<This is the cost of controlling him for extended durations>  Mitigating clarification, referential reminder, and steadiness

<The city is on alert>  Declaration and hint directive

<This is the way it has to be>  Stalwart declaration and exasperation

<…>  Lingering suspicion

<My mission objectives from the Carrier are clear>  Declaration of self-exculpation and bloated patriotism

<…>  Uncertainty and discomfiture

<Are yours>?  Elliptical interrogative, imbedded challenge, and skepticism

<Just what are you insinuating there>?  Information interrogative and anger

<I think, FeFe, you are starting to develop a sympathy for them over the Clan>  Derisive declaration and scorn

<I am just trying to rationalize everything>  Defensive declaration and denial

<I know>  Condescending declaration and false sympathy

<I know you know>  Stalwart declaration and sudden annoynace

<Anyway, with the meticulous coverage you've provided over these years on ‘Caraway,' I think I know how to run his office>  Patronizing declaration, mock deference, and self-assured dismissal

<You'd have to with all the time you're putting into it without any overseer>  Self-righteous retort, contemptuousness, and intimated challenge

<…>  Indignance and annoyance

<…>  Smugness and imbedded challenge

<Any news from the Archangel unit>?  Mitigating concession, sudden interest, hint directive, and interrogative

<Nothing new>  Complacent declaration

<No news is good news for you, I suppose>  Calm declaration and latent affront

<…>   Pause and frustration

<And the status of subject ‘Ellone'>?  Elliptical interrogative and mild curiosity

<She is as you left her>  Calm declaration and patronizing reminder

<Excellent>  Marked satisfaction

<So what is on the docket for today>?  Casual interest

<Have you seen the digital recording for last night>?  Rhetorical interrogative, hint directive, and high hopes

<I did not know there was one>  Denial, interest, and dread

<Take a look for yourself>  Imperative directive, smugness, and pleasure

<First tell me where you got this>  Imperative directive and suspicion

<From one of our scouts who was monitoring the cliffs yesterday>  Preplanned explanation and information declaration

<Oh>!  Awareness, numbness, and shock

<…>  Eager anticipation and giddiness

<So>?  Elliptical interrogative, imbedded challenge, suppressed disdain, and dismissal

<It means more when taken in conjunction to this latest recording>

<It is real>  Casual acknowledgement and internal revel

<Where did you get this>?  Interrogative, numbness, and suspicion

<From one of our scouts who was monitoring the beach this morning>  Preplanned explanation and information declaration

<Interesting>  Passive declaration and internal conflict

<Now do you believe me when I say the entire race is depraved>?  Interrogative, stalwart proposition, biased conclusion, and superiority

<You still cannot condemn the entire population for having one philanderer>  Passive declaration, defiance

<Then I suppose their society finds it acceptable to be lying under two different women in two days' time while indebted to yet a third one>?  Overly agreeable concurrence, brusquely feigned deference, condescension, and blatant sarcasm

<I am sure there is some explanation for this>  Calm declaration

<If it needs explanation, then it is wrong>  Didactic quotation, bias, and superciliousness

<You know that is not what I think>  Denial, irritation, and patronizing reminder

<Are you willing to concede that he could have murdered comrade PuPu>?  Stalwart declaration, self-assuredness, and accusation with finality

<The last recording from PuPu is ultimately not enough evidence to support that claim>  Earnest opinion, hesitancy, and internal struggle

< Truth will declare itself soon enough>  Didactic quotation, self-assuredness, and insinuation of stalwart conclusion

<…>  Pause, uncertainty, and fruitlessness

<In the meantime, go secure ‘Caraway' for another operation>  Imperative directive and undaunted dismissal

<…>  Pause and reluctance

<…>  Obstinacy, anticipation, and implied, imputed challenge

<Fine>  Grudgingly conceded accordance
