the solution

Ocean coasts had been abundant with food, and many clans had moved further away seeking new areas and new food sources that had no names. But now the ocean was behaving oddly, the strong tides took away some of the food sources and people moved about. "Zseen ny crobbots?", one passing family had asked, but noone here knew what these were and barely understood that it was a question. The movements of clans had even lead to conflicts that were previously unheard of . The late chief said to the wizard,"if this goes on, we'll have to move". The wizard who was familiar with some of the food sources in the uphill forest replied,"God's may be crazed of something, but the forest god has revealed to me how to live in there. We can move there. It's hard, but I see no option if this continues." When the next high tide came, it came with severity, as if Gods had decided to punish the clan for such abnormal thoughts. The beach vanished, and a low strait was formed between the upland forest and the forest on the other end of the beach. After some time living on the sparse resources in the forest, the wizard came to the chief and said:"Remember when we dreamed of those islands on the horizon, how magnificent beaches there would be and wondered how to get there? Well, now we know, how the hell do we get out of here?"

Retelling a story

Then there was this orchard planet which got heavily infested by a species as there were no natural predators for the species. The warden of the planet was keenly interested in diversity, but this was just too much. After consultation with other wardens, he decided not to totally eradicate the species, but to transplant some specimens to another planet. When questioned:"Are you certain the species won't destroy the ecosphere of this place?", his reply was:"Yes, see those Smilodons and other predators? They will keep their numbers down."

...and the results of this study point to the existence of quantum entanglement in macroscopic systems. The greatest difficulties in conducting the experiment were the vibrational effects on the insulated vacuum walls in zero-gravity that held the observed ice cubes. Even the lab-assistant performing the measurements had to be clad in breathing apparatus as his uneven breathing would have ruined the results. Additionally, he couldn't move for 30 minutes before the measurements as the system stabilized from the effects of opening the lab door...


...the ancient dwellers in the ocean were increasingly annoyed by the heat coming from the surface. Their chief scientist had proposed concerted effort to keep the heat out of the water saying, "let it go back the way it came." Eventually a consensus was reached. On the surface the temperatures started to rise as the dwellers started to release their pools of deep ice.
