} [scene: a courtroom in the clouds, much like an American courtroom but
} instead of wood panelling, everything is white marble, and instead of
} walls it's open air. The only landscape we can see is cloudless blue
} skies and a mountainside behind the judge's seat. ]
} [ HERCULES, standing at attention at the mountainside, announces: ]
} Herc: All rise! The right powerful and godly judge Zeus is presiding.
} Court is now in session.
} Zeus: [wearing judges robes but all in white, sits.]
} You may be seated. Bailiff, what do we have on the tablet today?
} Herc: Case number 0x0000000E, your honour: Prometheus versus Gates.
} Zeus: Ah yes. I thought I'd see you here, but much sooner. I know
} racial profiling is politically incorrect, but once a Titan, always
} [reads the slate]... wait. Bailiff, who's the plaintiff here?
} Herc: Prometheus, sir.
} Zeus: [puts the file down, stands up to look over the judge's podium.
} On his left is a small, tired man with glasses sitting next to a
} skittish-looking man in an expensive suit and slicked back hair.
} On his right stands PROMETHEUS, an 8' man in a half tunic, with
} white scars on his abdomen. ]
} Zeus: Prometheus, what is the meaning of this?
} Prometheus: Your divine honour, the defendant claimed that his product
} would improve man's lot, and allow them to share their knowledge and
} wisdom with all men equally. I charge that his product did quite the
} opposite, extinguishing the flames of man's best and brightest by
} marring their outlook with virulent falsehoods, slowing access to data,
} preventing merchants from excelling, corrupting their words so they
} could only speak the defendant's tongue, waylaying explorers with
} distractions popping up --
} Zeus: Enough, enough! Oy, now I know why Athena quit this job.
} You owe the Oracle a "Get Out of Jail Free" card.
