Patently absurd

First | Previous | 2013-10-04 | Next | Latest

Strip by: David Morgan-Mar

Ambrose: Someone else invented a machine that travels through time, and then space, sequentially. But I'm going to patent my machine which does both simultaneously!
Holly: Einstein would say that simultaneous in one reference frame is sequential in another, Professor Ambrose.
Ambrose: It's a good thing Einstein was never a patent examiner, then!

The author writes:

Inspired by something that happened to me at work.
