Strange-Neighbors

[Good afternoon, AGENT FORTY NINE. Thank you for arriving punctually to your septennial reconnaissance review.]

[Today we will be evaluating your surveillance of planet EARTH for the previous THIRTY FIVE EARTH YEARS. As you can see on the display, queries will be presented in an arbitrary manner and vary according to your assignment thus far. Please clear your testing area of all reckoning spheres and annals-attire and toggle the “Initiate” key to start.]

[Thank you. Your assessment this afternoon will be based in SUBURBAN LIFE: EARTH. Your first query is generating…]

[Query One: Middle class suburban dwellings on Earth, particularly in the region North America, are typically structured in which of the four pictured methods?]

**INCORRECT**

[Earth dwellings generally base their foundations tangent to the circumference of the planet, typically with the covering, or “roof”, placed above. Your selection would attract unwanted attention to your mission. This is the FIFTH instance you have failed this particular query. Please toggle the “Persist” key to continue.]

[Query Two: True or False? While maintaining the indigenous ground cover, or “lawn”, surrounding their dwellings, suburban Earth inhabitants typically prefer to groom the photosynthetic surface in straight, parallel lines.]

**INCORRECT**

[The answer is TRUE. Based on a human’s rudimentary understanding of mathematics, the shortest, and therefore least strenuous, distance between two points is a line. Your selection would attract unwanted attention to your mission. This is the FIFTH instance you have failed this particular query. Please toggle the “Persist” key to continue.]

[Query Three: At what time, if any, should an agent be observed taking off or landing in their assigned craft by Earth inhabitants? A. Never. B. In the evenings. C. In sparsely populated areas. D. At any time.]

**INCORRECT**

[As per your basic Reconnaissance Agent Training, unauthorized observance of agent activity by observed planetary inhabitants is dangerous and undesirable. Failing to disguise your assigned craft or its movements compromises the very existence of the Intergalactic Reconnaissance Alliance. This is the FIFTH instance you have failed this particular query. Please toggle the “Persist” key to continue.]

[The status of your exam is FAILED. The Alliance is unable to grant your request for a salary raise a this time. We shall evaluate you for promotion again in SEVEN EARTH YEARS. A representative will be with you shortly to escort you back to your post.]
