    While technically impossible, Pig actually kinda has a point here.

    Looks like the beginning of a time travel story; tomorrow they’ll step into a police box and cause a catastrophe, then they’ll try to fix it with a Delorean.

    For some reason I’m reminded of this classic Pearls strip from 2002.

    Pig is creating temporal paradox. Similarly, I must now go back in time to this Pearls strip and stop myself from writing a comment.

    On his way out the door to lunch, a man asked his secretary to confirm his flight to a nearby city for the next day.
    At lunch the man read a fortune cookie that said “You will die in an airplane accident tomorrow.”
    Upon returning to the office the man told his secretary to cancel his flight and rent him a car to drive instead.
    As the man approached his destination the next day, the plane he would have taken, flew overhead and lost a motor which plummeted to the ground and crushed the man in his car.

    Dunno about that, Pig. You just might be….

    Rat says ‘how and when’, but not where. So anyone that said yes, they’d like to know, would have only the knowledge to worry about dying, but they would die anyway. You can’t avoid a ‘when’ and a ‘how’ can be easily manipulated into striking you down anyway. All it would get you is a chance to say goodbye, and you would seem insane for doing it, and people would say you caused your own death by thinking it.

    Just make sure you are well armed and kill death first. That way you can avoid it.

    Pig should read the story “The Appointment in Samarra (as retold by W. Somerset Maugham)”
