It's About Time.

"Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time."
- Steven Wright

time machineI loathe stories which use time machines, or the manipulation of time, to weave a tale. I find it lazy writing, akin to the "And then she woke up" genre of fantasy.

That being said, the development of a working time machine might have some benefits. We could always use it toss garbage into black holes or attach miniscule time machines to each exhaust pipe of every car and let it zap the carbon emissions to the 2000th century. We'll deal with it when we get there.

Of course, the development of a time machine would be the end of the universe as we know it. Here's what I mean....

You start with a copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves and a time machine. You send yourself and the book back in time one-half hour. Now you have two books. Advance to the future 31 minutes with both books. Repeat this process, going a little farther back and a little farther forward each time, doubling the total number of books with each trip, until the universe is composed of nothing but books about feminine sexual health.

This should occur relatively instantaneously.

Yes, I realize this simplistic idea is full of all kinds of faulty Gordian logic, like the fact it would require the type of gi-NOR-mous amounts of energy that have up to now been entirely theoretical, but it points out the nonsensical nature of such a fiction.

So, please, no more time-travel stories. Unless there's nudity.

I love this picture but, in this new era of racial equality,
why did the stand-ins HAVE to be black?

The door to the bedroom flew open and there stood her uterus. It'd been drinking again. This time Dottie was scared. Really scared.
