    That’s right, folks! You won’t need that monkey’s paw any more! The probability shifter never runs out! You can keep altering the past over and over again until you’re satisfied!

    I’m reminded of a cartoon I saw (sorry I can’t give credit) which showed a line of people and other beings from future centuries lined up at Ford’s Theater to prevent Lincoln’s assassination, with a caption like “If Time Travel Were Real”.

    For the uninitiated (including perhaps Ushindi), someone should point out that several of the comments here refer to the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” books by Douglas Adams. It is possible, though by no means certain, that the comic itself was also influenced by Adams’ Improbability Drive.

    (Is Teresa Whatever ill? I’ve lost track since getting tired of Frog’s weirdness and dropping it from my subscription.)

    If we were EVER going to have time travel, we’d already have it. We’d have had it for hundreds of years at the least, because some guy from the future would have come back and sold the secret to Cosimo de Medici or somebody…

    Michael Jackson’s son Prince is also referred to as “Blanket”.

    As pschearer writes, this doubtless owes something to Douglas Adams. But it is more directly a satire on some silly ideas concerning Cern’s Large Hadron Collider. Do a search on “cern explanation collider failure”, of just go to: http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1937370,00.html

    Well, at least the spontaneous generation of pirates should help to reduce the effects of global warming.

    If I send in my $3,000 dollars and say I want to marry Teri Hatcher too, will they refuse, or will they refund that other guy’s money? I suppose they could arrange it so the government improbably legalizes polyandry and we can both marry her, but I don’t know if I’d spend $3,000 for that…

    Nope, I guess I’ll just have to be content with my current girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston.

    If time travel were real, someone would have gone back in time and prevented me from becoming President. Oh, wait…

    And thus, humanity was saved, Barticle.
