So you have to compete against JD, Ean said. To prove that being raised by elitist aliens is better than being raised by lower-middle class Americans. What does that competition consist of?
A random earth contest, Elroy said. That way the competition will be unbiased: the only advantage the High One will have over Jay-Dee will be her imperial upbringing, allowing her victory to prove, as you said, that terrans would be better off under imperial rule.
Huh, Ean said. Well, I think there’s some holes in your logic, but hell: you’re the ones with the interstellar empire, so lets go with it. What’s the competition?
Elroy’s computer beeped as it finished its selection. The alien consulted it. Tic Tac Toe, he announced gravely.
