18 · Andre Norton's Shoshone-Suomi Showdown

Poor timing abounds, as ancient secrets are accidentally unlocked through clumsy cultural appropriation – just as mankind prepares to abandon wonder forever.  Rival thunder-god wanna-bes Yan-a-bumfit and Perkele enter the ring: place your bets! K recites the Rhyme of British Coinage. Khaki tells K about a Space Thing for a change. Bookmarked passages: Phase 1, Canadian Bear Man, six-wheeled fennecs, abridged and incomplete novels, Readers' Digest, sorting on the Z-axis, Supermarionation, multicultural wizard shaman, Twitter inconsistencies, rockets are quick, gyroc, Currywurst mit Pommes, Thunderbird VTOL aircraft, SANSA-JAXA collaboration, Kessler syndrome, "mopping with the tap running", Pocatello XVI, Snake People, Plains Sign Talk, Alejandro "Alex" Schomburg y Rosa, coin-op gods, are foreign F-bombs permitted, Isotopes of Old Money, telex-memex internet, fulgerite talisman, beating the drums, multi-tribal vocables Selected quotes: "Oh my god, feathers!" "Like Godzilla tromping around New York with a few bits of human clothing saying 'Ooh look at me, I'm getting a latte macchiato!'" "I would describe it as a Cobra Cat." "Let's not google it."– "Why waste an opportunity for ignorance and maybe a corrective tweet?" "Kill your loved ones."– "That's not how that saying goes!" "It's not head-canon when you write it."
