Job interview?

"I'm sorry," I said to the recruiter, "but as much as I love the idea of space travel, I don't want to pilot a triangular spacecraft along the surface of a torus, desperately shooting at spontaneously-created self-propelled rocks in a desperate attempt to stay alive, knowing that, while the asteroids will never stop coming, inevitably I will make a mistake and die in a fiery explosion."

The recruiter seemed disappointed. "What if there were tinny but compelling trance music playing the whole time?"

"Maybe..." I mused.
