Thank Grog It’s Firday!
Yes…it has been a week to remember. Wife got a new hip (I’m on CareGiver Mode)..I am almost done with the 2nd bathroom remodel (I’m also in builder/fixer/painter/plumber/carpenter mode), and TSTO/EA continues to keep feeding us characters and content. Two of those make me happy…
I know some of you love this update (CJBrown, you know who you are…). But, I guess I have to just “go with the flow…and throw in the towel” as it comes to anything resembling the Time Space Continuum.
And man…. EA…have you met Safi?? He’s the one who has been doing Bracket Battles to bring us ideas of the most anticipated and coveted characters and content in the game. In short…he is doing YOUR JOB…but you are apparently ignoring him. But, I’ll get to that.
First, the Time Space Continuum. This well established bending of Einstein’s general theory, states pretty clearly, that you can’t have multiple versions of different ages of someone wandering around in the same Time Space. In other words, if you are being true to how linear time works, you can’t be an active part of a one reality in the present (you) and interact with a version of a younger you (also you).
Haven’t the writers seen “Outlander??” The main character has two husbands…one in the 17th century, and one in the 1940s-60s, and a whole lot of sex, which brings about a daughter who is born in this Time Space, but was actually fathered by her hot, other husband in the 1700s. Now THAT makes sense! But, I digress…
What doesn’t make sense is Teenage Homer, umpteen versions of grown-up Homer, and a new Baby Homer all wandering around, performing tasks at the same time…in the same Springfield. It’s nuts, I tell ya!!
And of course, it wasn’t just Homer…there are scads of “youngun versions” of people of all ages.
Of course the only one who isn’t a “baby” is Smithers…who is a teen. But, what also annoys me, is that these “Babies” are really more old toddlers…or Pre-Schoolers (what is the correct term for a child who is not a “baby” but is old enough to know where the peanut butter snacks are hidden…but isn’t in real school yet? Toddler just doesn’t seem to cover it). I KNOW what babies are supposed to look like. Only Bart and Lisa remotely resemble what a real toddler looks like.
I got this text from Katie…guilty as charged! As soon as Jake could walk…and run…he is persistently sneaking into the snack cupboard for a treat! Genetics…don’t fall far from the Peanut Butter Ritz crackers! But, I digress again…
I’m not buying the concept or need for a bunch of Baby/Toddler/Teen versions of the characters. Especially after Safi has done so much to work out these amazing BRACKET BATTLES!!
I mean…come on, EA!!! Safi has already done all of the heavy lifting for you! I realize that comedy writers aren’t exactly known for their math skills…but, Safi is seriously skilled in the art of all things numeric…so you just have to READ HIS POSTS!!!
Look at all of that Math!! Nothing says “this is real” like all of those votes and percentages! So…BRING HER ON! Let’s get back to the REAL Time Space Continuum…where Dead Versions of People (DVP) and Live Versions of People (LVP) from the Past can be the same person…and exist at the SAME time, in the same Time/Space!!!
Man…this would make Young Einstein freak the freak out! It’s one thing to have different versions of living people interacting with themselves (but I still call BS)…but it is completely different to have a Live and Dead version of the same person wandering around. And…even with Safi’s Math…I am hard pressed to buy any of it.
But…it is the Simpsons…it is a silly game…and the fact is, I have stuff to do.
So…I’ll leave it up to you. Does the Time Space Kerfulfium bother you? Do you want Maude back to life? And do you think Outlander is should be renamed “Outlandish?” (even though I am enduring my wife binge-watching it during her convalescence)???
Keep on Tappiin’… what choice do we have?
Oh….Wait….One more thing…
Yes…I realize that I am dodging my real emotions. Yes. I realize that I am perhaps misdirecting my anger toward something I CAN control…(My silly little game, EA and the writers). And yes…I realize that there are likely many of you reading this, who come here to be happy…to get away from the mayhem and chaos in the world.
But, they have finally broken my head. “They” being the idiots in government who allow the madness to continue. I wish I could be more specific…but the fact is, there is so much madness…in so many sectors…each and every single day…that my head has finally snapped, trying to swivel around to gaze at the latest horrific act, or statement, or ignorant tweet that comes across my reality.
I have one salvation… I know how to say, “Pffffffffftttttttttt!!!!!”
To all of the leaders who do nothing but offer “hopes and prayers”..while doing nothing. I say, “Pffffffffffffttttttttttt!” To all of the sheeple who blindly make excuses for them, I say “Pfffffffffffffffttttttttttt!”
‘Nuf said…you can sort out who is who on your own.
Now…for those who need a lesson in saying “Pfffftttt…” Here’s our newest expert! My grandson, Jake.
OK…now you can go back to tappin’…
Oh…wait…here is another tweet…Oh…Dear…God…. Pfffffffffffffttttttttttttttt!!!!
