The Real World is Weird

Saturn Ring Blues
It sucks that the real world has stories just as science fictional as any I can make up.  Suddenly I'm just a mainstream writer!

According to the Huffington Post, a Seattle attorney claims that he was part of a secret time travel/teleportation program during the time he was 7-12 years old.  He says that he's even in a picture that was taken at the Gettysburg Address.

The attorney, Andrew Basiago, says that he will be releasing a book about his experiences soon, Once Upon a Time in the Time Stream:  My Adventures in Project Pegasus at the Dawn of the Time-Space Age, so maybe this news story is an elaborate publicity ploy to attract attention to his book (which I have become a part of).

Or, he traveled in time.

I'll meditate over the possibilities while grading papers today.

Actually, I'm pretty sure he's just crazy.

That's probably the simplest explanation.

I'm voting for extended practical joke, but it's hard to tell.

Of course, if it's publicity for a book, then the joke becomes more practical.

Maybe he can travel through time. Who really knows? I just know that I don't want to. I have a hard enough time dealing with the present.
