The Fool:
In what way would society be different if bears had become the dominant sentient species?
TMFKabellen:
Designer bear shoes would cost a lot more money.
The Fool:
Your greatest fear? Any neurotic ones (agoraphobia, triskaidekaphobia, etc.)?
TMFKabellen:
I am scared of moths. I have learned that this is called mottephobia.
