You know, I always wondered what would happen if you went back in the dark ages with the stuff we have today. I bet movies would scare the piss out of them, especially with the CGI.

And you know I'd be a dick and say 'Oh yes, this is what the future looks like, we're overrun with orcs/aliens/whatnot'.

People explore that in fiction all the time, don't they? Like, pretend to be wizards because they have meteorology shit and can predict the weather.

Yeah, but they're not so much dicks about it as I think I would be.

LOL, but they can extort money.

Money or common household items that would be antiques in our time.

"Right, give me that candlestick or I'm bringing my talking orange fish to eat your soul.

Orange fish?

Dammit, now my soul is gone.

Fear the wrath of Jude.

My soul made me warm and cozy on the inside...wah.
25th-Apr-2009 08:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, it does look like a very cozy one.

It's done well by me.
