Air and Space

Today I'm sitting at my desk with too much to do and not enough time to do it. I'm stressed.

RFB and Monkeyboy in DC are on a field trip to the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.

Last week at this time I was waiting for my first poker tournament of the trip, at the Showboat. I didn't win any money but I lasted longer than my friend, the doctor-in-training. I declared it my first moral victory of the trip.

Mr. Peabody, where are you, Sherman and the Wayback Machine when I really need you?!

Hmmm... the Wayback Machine at your disposal (and Mr Peabody), and all you would think about would be going back a week and doing better at your poker tournament?

There are much more interesting things you could do with a time machine that that, wouldn't you think? (I see another "what would you do?" blog entry coming...).

And, even if you would just want to stay put, consider Mr. Peabody himself. How many billions do you think that some Far East cloning lab would give you for a genius-level talking dog?

Then you could also consider renting the Wayback Machine out to those of your readers who really would like to go back and alter certain events.

Oh, the Wayback Machine. I loved that cartoon. If you find it, let me know. I could use it in my cubicle today too.

Mr. Peabody may be in for some money himself once he successfully sues Brian from "Family Guy"

DMarks: I wouldn't want to change history or fuck with the fabric of the space/time continuum. Actually I would like to, but I'm too responsible for that.

I wouldn't even want to change the poker tourney outcome. I'd just rather be there and then than here and now.

Churlita: You'll be the first one I send a message to if I find it. But remember, we can't change history. We could end up changing the present. Like we could change history so blow jobs didn't get you impeached but lying to ge5t us into war did.

Wait a minute, sci-fi fans or physics nerds, please help me understand why that would be a bad thing.

I'd ask Mr. Peabody, but he's already in a crate on his way to Shanghai.

Maybe Brian can abscond with the Wayback machine and go back to a time when Family Guy was actually funny, cutting edge, tasteless humor still worth watching instead of its present state of stale, tasteless humor.

I always liked "Fractured Fairy Tales" more than zsherman & Peabody. But then, nothing will ever hold a candle to Clyde Crashcup.
