Flux Capacitory Consequences

“Thank goodness!”, cried the Professor, “We’re just in time to deactivate the Time Machine!” “But, ma’am, aren’t you worried about the flux capacitory consequences?” “No time to worry!” she shouted, “we have the rescue the President!”. The Professor pulled the switch. Sparks flew and danced, some of them doing both at the sane time.

“Thank goodness!” cried the professor “We’re not in time to deactivate the Time Machine, but we can use it to go back in time to before when we would have needed to do si!” “But, ma’am, aren’t you worried about the flux capacitoriy conseuences?
No time to worry!” she shouted, “we have to rescue the Vice President!” The Professor pulled the switch. Sparks crackled and snapped.”

“Oh my goodness!” yelled the Professor. “We’re not in time to capacitate the fluxation, but the Vice President is already inconsequential. That’s when the Time Terrorists struck.

“I’m on strike!” yelled the mother of the twin time-travelling flux capacitator groupies. “You can sort out your own love lives!” The ancient wise woman watched sparks fly and deactivated the Time Machine.

She shook her head. Predicting it was easy. Knowing it, and living with it, that part she wouldn’t trade you for a chicken farm on green soil.

Time travel is the fourth-worst way to rescue the President. But if she kept working at it real, real hard, she might see it become the third-worst in her lifetime.

One can dream.

She deactivated the time machine, but it was too late / too early / too late / too much of a time which wasn’t definable by “time”.

She deactivated the time machine at the same time as the time machine deactivated here. “I’ve done it!” they both cried, simultaneously. Then each paused in disgust. Which one timeported them backwards twenty minutes? It doesn’t matter. They had to get this right. It had to be perfect, goodness nows.

“Goodness gracious!”, she shouted, reundemeterializing…
