wwell okay maybe thisll help fix some a the damages

Eridan's Plan
1. Think of a way to secure the cockpits of spacecraft while still allowing people to board.

wwe can station some guards outside the cockpit wwith wweapons like some kind a taser or ray gun or wwhatevver that wwill disable wwhoevver tries to cause trouble wwithout shootin holes in the ship.

2. Dismantle the new educational program at the school without repealing the edict.

okay hear me out wwe keep evverythin the same but wwe change the insides a the textbooks or wwhatevver theyre usin to study so evverybody is gonna learn the right stuff instead

3. Be Lanthanide's Instacart people on all of your ration cards and go hungry, or think of a way to get the food without wasting your one shopping trip you're permitted per week.

just use the vvouchers on the cheapest vversions a the requested food and use some coupons or wwhatevver so theres enough left in the food budget for extra so i dont gotta starvve

Stupid doomed timeline...
1. Think of a way to secure the cockpits of spacecraft while still allowing people to board.

"Accidentally" break all the doors to the cockpits so that no one will be able to get into them. And leave "Out of Order" signs on the doors. No one can literally get in or out via doors. So how will they get in? Ahh, but that's the genius of the plan! Make a secret passage underneath or on top of the ships themselves that lead to the cockpit area. And be sure to cover up the openings with some big metal pieces. Tell people that they're all "exhaust parts" and they need thorough examining because they are cheaply made and require constant maintenance. But do let the pilots know how to undue them so they can get to the cockpits themselves while hiding away from other people. The pilots can fly easily and no one who doesn't know any better won't be the wiser.

2. Dismantle the new educational program at the school without repealing the edict.

Approach all the kids at the school until you find some of the more rebellious ones. Bargain with them that if they go in and wreck up the schools and destroy all the important papers needed for educational purposes. If they do this, they'll get everything they want; toys, candy, money, whatever. Then watch all the kids wreak havoc in the schools. Papers get destroyed, even the ones that are needed for the education curriculum. And one that's all destroyed, quickly abandon them before they notice you leave so you don't have to live up to your end of the bargain. They served their purpose, time to move on.

3. Be Lanthanide's Instacart people on all of your ration cards and go hungry, or think of a way to get the food without wasting your one shopping trip you're permitted per week.

You sure as hell won't be wasting your shopping trip. You need it for yourself later on. And nothing will change that. But there are still ways to get food. Find a poorly-maintained, beaten up dirty vehicle, then find some ragged clothes to put on and go around to one part of town that's pretty busy and pretend to be homeless. Get a sign saying "I need food and money". Depend on the kindness of strangers and take anything you can get. If it's food, store it away. If it's money, buy some stuff at a restaurant. Once you've had enough, go back to Lanthanide and present to her everything you've attained. And before you give it to her, sneak in a little something for yourself.

"Ah, my Eva is perfect for this! Station it outside the ship, scaring any terrorists away!"

2. Dismantle the new educational program at the school without repealing the edict.

"Two Words: TOTAL AUTHORITARIANISM! ALL THE KIDS WILL BE FORCED TO LEARN, NO MATTER WHAT! You don't like it? TELL IT TO THE FIRING SQUAD!"

"A Ponzi Scheme, obviously! Convince people you're getting food for them, find a way to take their one shopping trip, get all the food you need and skip town! Simple!"

“As shown by my experience with the Disney parks, we have an easy effective way of doing this. After getting a FastPass for two hours later, the rider will come back to the space shift, be directed into a specific lane, and lower the lap bar above them. Oh, and make sure to keep your hands and feet inside the ride!”

2. Dismantle the new educational program at the school without repealing the edict.

“Let's boil the lessons down to what really matters. The kids’ won't need to learn the more specific things, unless they do. It's like the theme park version, but for education! Also get rid of Common Core I beg of you my RPer is sick of doing tape diagrams in math class when he can just do them in his he-

”Hmmmm…What if we simulated food? We had the taste somehow, to tide people over, but not the food itself? Like the education plan, the simulation could tide people over until the essentials are needed, and less food overall is needed!”
Current results of the plans:

Pinky and The Brain's plan goes ahead. Biometric locks are expensive, but they work well enough to keep unauthorized people out of the cockpits, and making the classes in question badly taught beyond belief is a good idea. Lanthanide says what she always says when she approves of an illegal action when the black-market arbitrage gets her decent quality groceries. "Ah'm not allowed to endorse this at all."

Eridan's plan starts off well. Employing security guards works. People are all too happy to oppress others, even if it isn't in their best interests to do so. Though the guards do sometimes tase the teamsters for no reason at all. Swapping out the textbooks for the propaganda-rich ones and generally delaying the curriculum changes is a good stalling tactic that could theoretically hold back the problems forever. However, Alliance Products are all Alliance Branded. There is no knockoff brand to buy, so Eridan only just scrapes by with enough ration-card left to buy himself a six pound can of whole-kernel hominy, which will have to last him the week.

George has a cunning plan indeed. Disabling the obvious routes into the cockpit and having the pilots enter through a maintenance port makes it difficult for people who don't already work on mechanic crews to get into the ship uninvited, which was the goal. Creating an accidental youth cultural movement against the new curriculum was an amazing idea, though it does seem to have started a street gang. They forget the promise of a bribe, instead going around attacking "Disloyalists". The curriculum is permanently stalled out by this new pro-Alliance youth movement. Though unfortunately, the charity scam falls through pretty quickly. The Alliance has been generally careful to keep disposable income and resources low, and so George walks away with mostly expired canned goods and a bag filled with complimentary bread from the only restaurant that offers it, rapidly going stale due to not being packaged.

Askua's plan is interesting, but ultimately falls flat in a few places. The giant robot is intimidating enough to keep anyone trying to escape or steal the craft away, but it's also a massive hazard for teamster vehicles, which constantly have to swerve around it. It also can't monitor the whole loading dock at once. The problem has become an entirely different one. The plan to force students to learn at gunpoint completely failed. The new curriculum was learned VERY well at gunpoint, and those educated with it now have even more reason to try to flee. Bilking other people out of food is tricky, but Asuka does manage it to a masterful extent, with a comment about inside tracks at underground betting rings known "only by the mayor". Ultimately, Asuka walks off with enough fraudulently obtained weekly ration cards that Lanthanide gets her groceries twice over and Asuka can also eat.

Mickey's plan starts off weak. The passport system and line system significantly slow down loading times, though barring the door does work well enough. The new education idea of stripping down all the education into absurd stereotypes and oversimplified messages works quite well though. People are taught to think the other nations deeply stupid, and there's so little detail in the lessons that it's not enough to escape with. But trying to give Ersatz food to Lanthanide just gets him what would presumably be a glare, if Lanthanide had a face to speak of.

“Are you telling me FastPass didn't work? But…but I've had experience! FastPass is proven to work! Sure, there are some complaints, but people didn't hate FastPass!”

He searches for an answer to why his plans didn't work.
Proven to work at what? It sure ain't workin' for gettin' people to load boxes onto spacecraft without takin' over the spacecraft an' flyin' out illegally. It jus' slowed down labor. An' makin' the teamsters wait in lines? Really? This is why yer archivist and not logistics, Mickey. Now everyone else, hurry up with yer plans.

1. Think of a way to secure the cockpits of spacecraft while still allowing people to board.

How about this! Let's make the spaceship look as run down as possible without it actually BEING nonfunctional! That way, no terrorist would ever THINK of using the spaceship! They'll think it's so run down it can't fly!

2. Dismantle the new educational program at the school without repealing the edict.

Make a miniature rebellion! Everyone knows kids will find a way to rebel against authority... All we need to do is make said authority look bad! I suggest we mandate a special education plan that will involve abuse! With all of that, the kids will rebel against the authority, and we'll have a clean slate for the proper education!

3. Be Lanthanide's Instacart people on all of your ration cards and go hungry, or think of a way to get the food without wasting your one shopping trip you're permitted per week.

I'll go out to the public on my wheelchair (Remember, I'm a cripple!) and fabricate a heart-wrenching story for the public! With my crippled state and cute looks, they'll eat me up, and we'll get those food donations easy!
I don't understand any of this... I'm in a world of complete insanity...
1. Think of a way to secure the cockpits of spacecraft while still allowing people to board.

"Just ask everyone if they're a terrorist as they're boarding, DUHHHHH!!! What're they gonna do? lie? Yeah right! If and when someone says yes, tie them to the side of the plane as an example to everyone else! That'll lower terrorisms for sure!"

2. Dismantle the new educational program at the school without repealing the edict.

"Got a problem with teachers trying to explain around your lies- oh, my bad! Alternative facts? Here's whatcha do. Take them out to a company outing to the woods, and just have them walk around the place forever! Always telling 'em that the location is juuuuuust nearby. But here's the twist, there IS no location! Once they're gone, replace them with more dependable teachers, and the problem's solved!"

3. Be Lanthanide's Instacart people on all of your ration cards and go hungry, or think of a way to get the food without wasting your one shopping trip you're permitted per week.

"You can have as many weekly shopping trips as you want if you just steal people's identities! That way you can go get food as many times as people you can dupe into giving their personal info! Sure, then THEY won't be able to go out for food, but if they didn't want that, they shouldn't have let their identity be stolen!"
Monaca tries her plan. Making spaceships look run down is easy enough. Unfortunately, this both undermines patriotic spirit and doesn't prevent desperate people from trying to take them over. Less desperate people try less though. Her second plan, and specifically the talk of encouraging rebellion against authority only gets her name written down on a piece of paper by Lanthanide in the most intimidating possible way. The making the students miserable doesn't change much, abuse does not tend to beget open rebellion, but the students do struggle a little more on focusing, always watching carefully to see if they've slipped up rather than focusing on the work too much. The plan to exploit charity doesn't go great. It goes about the same as George's attempt to defraud the public with a fake charity, except instead of a large bag of complimentary restaurant bread, Monaca brings a bouquet of wilting yellowish flowers.

Magane's plan is attempted next. Posting someone to ask a general question about terrorism quickly weeds out the people who think they're funny but really aren't. This raises workplace morale enough to actually reduce the incidence of people trying to escape. Not as much as the other plans, but it did produce an improvement. Changing all the teachers by literally telling them to get lost works out, but the new teachers are only slightly better at dancing around the facts. Education is disrupted on a more general scale. Finally, she breaks into the archive and steals people's Identity Cards and other identifying information and uses them to claim rations. Captain Lanthanide seems fine with the results, and Magane still has her own ration card to spend.

At least I wrecked the school systems. Gangs in schools, it's genius! A lot more effective than your little firing squad.

Asuka flinches a bit at the mention of her mother's suicide, and then takes a quick deep breath.

"…for the record, she was extremely delusional from her illness. I had nothing to do with it. A-at least that's what the doctors said."

"Heh, more tricky... could offering shopping for other too (while disguise real identity), but instead just claiming food of their for yourself along with also get food requested?"

wwell i think i did okay
at least i got somethin for myself to eat evven if its not gonna be the greatest ivve evver had but swwitchin the books wworked wwell for tryin to fix that wwhole education mess


All things considered, Eridan looks pretty pleased with himself.
Stupid doomed timeline...
"But extorting him with the promise of food…not a bad idea! GEORRRRGE!"

Asuka walks up to George, squishes his mouth with her hand, keeping his head in place.

"Here's the deal: I give you a bit of my rations, you do whatever I ask of you. Capeesh?"

Pinky grins. Brain did real well, too! He's smart! He let me teach a class and said I did great! He's the best friend a mouse could want. Pinky gives Brain a hug. Brain... well, he doesn't look so happy at first, but then he grudgingly looks like he likes it.

Ahh.... you'd like that, wouldn't you? Entrap me to play your little games that way, huh? I know how you are. You're just gonna use me to do what you want and then throw me under the bus when you don't need me anymore. I know people like you and I ain't havin' it! I don't need your charity.

"Hmmm..."

Magane leans over to George with a cocky grin.

"But you'll get it in a legal way, riiiiight? Gosh, if you were caught by our great benefactors doing something ILLEGAL...!"

She takes out a piece of paper, slowwwwly ripping it in half.

"It's bye bye Georgie!"
"oh hell no, kung fu panda!"
All right, I'll think about it!

"That means he's in," Magane whispers in Asuka's ear.
