    Good Morning, Oopsters.

    A time travel trip, huh?

    I wonder if Doc had solved his governmental woes yet.

    Exactly how will this be of any use? Sounds to me like it would be useful if he is to place sensor packages and then to retrieve the data periodically.

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 19 “The Savage Land of Promise”(42) 7/19/2013 Friday
    Alley has this feeling he needs to ditch his escorts but how? What ever is impelling him to go to Section C is gentle, but persistent. He knows it is good and he feels good about following that voice. In the mean time, the two very calm Gom-Goo are fluttering off the floor on their strange wing-ears directing the colonists to the larger near by room where they will wait to be “removed” from the colony.
    Before the late shift and after the middle shift will be coming counting everyone who is a colonist and not part of the corporate government will be there. The timing will be close. Alley’s participation in that is very much needed for them to succeed. Only Mr. Am can see how this needs to be played out.
    Alley comes up with the idea to check out the rooms on his own and dashes off. They are startled then go in pursuit, but Alley is a crafty one. He learned a few things from Harry Blackstone and the Houdini brothers he can use to fool these guys. He finds a means of making it look like a door is closing as if he went inside but in fact just a positioned mop. Also making sounds in one area then running at full speed, quietly (as he does back home) and soon they were totally at odds as to where he was. Then he calls them and asks about Section G then hangs up.
    “Now to Section C, he says to himself,” ready to find out why he must go there.

    Perhaps Alley will run into the Shellies and Lord Byron, and the writing of Frankenstein. See

    As for why one would want first hand information, it has been suggested that an artificial duplication of the effects of that volcanic eruption could be used to counter the effects of global warming. This would be an example of “geo engineering” that could solve the problem — or could go horribly wrong.

    Get this conversation moving, dadgummit.

    I’d go for horribly wrong.

    Once again, Doc Wonmug seems to be a couple of tacos short of a combination platter. I’m no scientist and even I know about the so called “year without summer.”

    I agree. There is a documentary called the little Ice Age that says this phenom was the last spark needed to begin the French Revolution.

    Dare I say, by chance the mystery of young Jane Austen’s illness might become clearer rather soon now?

    That documentary got it wrong. The French Revolution took place in 1789 and lasted until 1799, before that disaster occurred.

    Maybe Doc can take a cure back for Jane Austen…

    And why should Wonmug care about Jane Austen? Since so many people died during that “Year without a Summer”. The main explosion of Tambora caused hundreds of thousands of deaths in and around Indonesia – Jane’s problems should not even on Wonmug’s radar. I hope the Benders have a reason, better than some are proposing, for Wonmug’s trip to 1816 Swiss Alps!

    He must be a real ivory tower type of scientist, one-dimensional. The only relatives I have that don’t know about the year without a summer are the ones who have mo interest in anything even remotely resembling science.

    Whatever happened to old what’s-his-name? Alley something or other?

    Good Morning Benders and all. Does the Climate studies
    department want ice core samples of volcanic dust
    dispersal from a peak of a mountain in the Swiss Alps?
    There was a expedition to a unclimbed Swiss mountain Ritzlihorn (Bernese Alps Western Switzerland) in 1816.
    Perhaps this is where they would like Doc Wonmug’s
    group to go. But the look on Doc Wonmug’s face shows he may still be having a problem getting Alley to the present and then sending him to 1816.
