Time travel, or aliens?

This was brought to my attention the other day, and I thought it might make for a fun, surreal post. Looks like an ancient clay tablet depicting a mobile phone was … no, this never actually happened and it’s completely fake. But it was still amusing.


It also made for a brief and entertaining Facebook thread about one of the weirdest, funniest time travel stories I think I’ve ever dreamed up.

Nah, that’s about it. Although the King-discussion at the end there did call to mind my crazed attempts to reconcile the time travel physics of two of King’s very different time travel books.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

    Microsoft time travel…if I were in that thread, I would have commented that you’d get an automatic update right in the middle of time travel, your machine would crash, and your program would be interrupted. Hence, you’d be dead. Please, never ever let Microsoft work on time travel.
