Zombies Are Scary

"Zombies don't represent anything in my mind except a global change of some kind. And the stories are about how people respond or fail to respond to this."
— George Romero (creator of Night of the Living Dead)



Obama vs. Obama


Encountering yourself as a time-traveler is frequently Very Bad; either it's unhealthy for you in particular, or it creates a Temporal Paradox.

The theory goes something like this:

You can't meet a past version of yourself without having memory of it and the future version of yourself cannot be surprised to see past you, having had to be there to see it to make it possible. However, this can be easily avoided if you fail to recognize yourself. As a result it's generally correlated with time travel of the Timey Wimey Ball variety, and negatively correlated with Stable Time Loops (though there are exceptions). Compare Future Me Scares Me; contrast Screw Yourself.

Case in point:



Gangster Moderne

Gangster moderne, sont les gens d'aujourd'hui
Ils font les lois, ils font les lois...

Laisse ! Dans ce business, Eliot Ness est de mèche
Satan dirige la messe. Donc personne ne se confesse...

The U.S. are a multinational operation
exporting the Wild West
and its feudal system
Calling up what's good and evil...

They say setting the stage is what matters
You can't judge a book by its cover in the Gold Rush

From there on, techniques have just been evolving
The smart chip has taken over the Remington-Rider
