Title: coma-geddon - part 4
Date: October 27, 2006
Summary: Rupert T. Roach explains the Etiquette of a Time Paradox.
"Fin" style: The end is at the where the 9 number should be on a clock.
Number of panels: 6
Past Bever: "ok, but if your my future self, Shouldn't my recovery prevent you from ever having traveled back in time and causing Steve to awake me in the first place?"
Future Bever Blushes!
Future Bever: "Oh No! I've created a paradox!"
Future Bever:"...How embarassing!"
Rupert T. Roach: "Indeed! T'would seem our erstwhile hero has commited a most grevious temporal fau-pas! The indignity!"
Rupert T. Roach: "In order that you, esteemed reader, should not fall afoul of such shameful gaucherie. I will now endeavour to instruct you in the age-old rules of TIME-TRAVEL ETIQUETTE."
Rupert T. Roach (Narrating):"1) When traversing in either direction in the temporal continuum the considerate traveller will always pause to consider the possible paradoxical consequences of his or her actions."
A future Steve is shooting a lazer beam at past steve.
Future Steve:"Killing my past self is the only way to save the future!"
A Steve from further in the future (possibly) intercepts the lazer to save past Steve
Futurer Steve: "Noo! my Future self is the only one who can save the past!"
Futurer Steve: "AKH!"
Past Steve: "...I'm not even going to try to work this one out."
Rupert T. Roach (Narrating): "2)It is presumptious to be overly familiar with one's past or future self. Just because you are constructed from the same matter is no excuse for impropriety"
Future Bever is trying to High-Five Past Bever.
Future Bever: "Hey, Past me, High-Five!"
Past bever: "At what point in the future do I learn those manners?"
Rupert T. Roach (Narrating): "3) And finaly, in the case of universal implosion always be polite to the creator."
Steve:"...They just have these stupid black eyes and they eat bamboo all day. I mean, seriously, what were you thinking?"
Creator looks annoyed
Creator: "Well how many Space-Time continua have you created recntly?""
Rupert T. Roach: So there you have it: Just follow these simple rules and you shall find yourself welcomed to any social gathering throughout eternity!"
Cyborg Rupert T. Roach: "Capital!"
The creator has three heads... Maybe thats why life is so confusing?
Lazers in the future will not be a strait line but rather go off in random directions.
Rupert T. Roach is a trans-dimentional being.
Bever does not like himself.
