Happy ID4 Day!

Ginger: Did you see that?!

Ruby: No. What was it?

Ginger: Never mind – what about that one!! Did you see that one?!

Ruby: Nope.

Ginger: That’s okay – did you see that?!

Ruby: Ginger, honey, they’re fireworks. It’s hard to miss them.

Ginger: Oooh! Look at that one!

Ruby: Okay.

Ginger: Wow! Did you see that one?! With the baboom-crickle-crickle-fzzzt?

Ruby: Sure.

Ginger: That was my math skills…oh! Look – you can see my history lessons!!

Ruby: …wait, what?

Ginger: Don’t fireworks remind you of the inside of your brain? Pieces of your education and memories light up for a brief moment and then fizzle out to allow a different piece light up and explode all over the place?

Ruby: …huh. That explains a lot.

Ginger: Oh! Hey – that was magnesium!

Ruby: …your memory of magnesium?

Ginger: No, the firework used a lot of magnesium. That’s why it sparkled like that.

Ruby: …fireworks take on an entirely new set of mind-games with you, Ginger.

Ginger: Also, it did kind of remind me of my chemistry class…huh. Weird. Hey – look! The pretty red one!!

Ruby: Do you know what chemical made it red?

Ginger: The Pythagorean Theorem!

Ruby: …can you tell me what that is?

Ginger: A2 + B2 = C2

Ruby: Then…yes. That was the Pythagorean Theorem. That’s what makes it red.

Ginger: Look over there! That green one!

Ruby: Is it representative of photosynthesis?

Ginger: What? No. It’s just a pretty green firework.

Ruby: Just when I think I get a handle on how your brain might process things…

Ginger: …you realize it’s just a pretty lightshow with the acrid smell of smoke lingering in the air?

Ruby: …Happy Fourth of July, Ginger.

Ginger: Happy Independence Day, Ruby! Now that we’ve overthrown the Alliance, let’s go watch Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith destroy an alien race with nearly antiquated technology now!

Ruby: You had to work in a Firefly reference, didn’t you?

Ginger: Well, we are the Independents, Ruby. And we won.

Ruby: You know the Independents were a parallel to the Civil War, right?

Ginger: Yeah. But I like it when we win.

Ruby: Let’s just go watch Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum destroy the alien race. We win in that one…

Ginger: Woohoo!!!
