2009-10-12: Time Paradox (will)

What do you mean, paradox?

So the universe in which my comics take place is a fixed temporal entity, like ours. Yeah, like ours! A timeless mathematical object that seems to have time because that's "what it feels like from the inside".

Rabid: Do you accept FUTURE MONEY?
Dr Quickly: Oh! Ha ha, you misunderstand.

[[ Rabish leaves flowers in memory of Rabid at a Secret Government Research Laboratory. ]]
