Book 17: A Little Immortality — PART V


NARRATOR: Dom Atlantis...

BREYA: Haban, who said "With a long enough lever I'll move the world?"

HABAN: It was Archimedes, and he also asked for a fulcrum.

BREYA: Thank you. It's this trivial stuff that always seems to rile the people up for screaming.

HABAN: True. But the people like the fact that you write your own speeches.

BREYA: Haban... what if we pull on the lever, and the world rolls downhill into a volcano?

HABAN: People will scream about the absurd geology in that metaphor.

They'll stop screaming when they hit the lava, though.
