I don't understand half the people I talk to now

Somebody's delulu?

Whatever their accents are, I'll bet the hand signals out the windows of their flying cars will be the same ones we're using now.

The colonists circling Uranus all have a twangy Kentucky dialect.

What do the old accents sound like?

Well, duh. I've read all the Expanse books.

I presume they'll sound like the Martians in "Mars Attacks!"

They will sound like every airline pilot you've ever heard, with a bad fake Texas accent.
