Uses of a Time Machine 4

“Hey I’ve got a great idea for the time machine you’ve just built. We could go back in time and see the dinosaurs!”

“We’ve already done that. Several times in fact.”

“Huh?”

“Every time we go back and see the dinosaurs, you get stepped on by a brontosaurus, and I have to come back to this point.”

“Don’t you mean a diplodocus?”

“No, I mean a brontosaurus.”

“Surely it can’t happen every time. Let’s try it again!”

“Okay. If you insist…”

“Are we there yet?”

“Yes. Just go out the doors and you’ll see the dinosaurs.”

“Sweet! Oh look a brontosaurus! Aarrgghh!”

“*sighs* Okay, back to the reset point again.”

“Hey I’ve got a great idea for the time machine you’ve just built. We could go back in time and see the dinosaurs!”

“I seem to be stuck in a loop.”
