I've avoided announcing my new storyline on Facebook while people are on 
holiday.  But this is a *double*-productive weekend for me.  Bonus episode!


The page comes with commentary from Wyatt Ferguson, because it is the 
follow-up story to Earth 2011 Endgame.  I've reproduced the commentary 


The Powernaut is publishing his story of The End Of The World, in usual 
Powernaut manner - as a comic strip. One of his rules is, every strip 
has to mention the Powernaut. But I think the story might deserve some 
more commentary about the non-Powernaut parts. The U.S. Gov thinks so 
too. They keep me on payroll, and commentary is part of why. They surely 
didn't make me a sworn Federal agent just to beat up people. I can 
barely beat up stupid magicians. 

So, commentary. Here goes.


Yes, I talked with the Vice-President. Or as he likes to be called, the 
Vice-Badass in Chief. Crusher Joe Corrigan actually likes to do the 
dirty work, which frees President Obama to hand out the warm fuzzies. 
Everyone's happiest that way... Anyway, I recall our conversation like 

Crusher Joe: Wyatt! Give me ideas!

Wyatt: okaay... (insert recap of what Crusher Joe just told me about 
Wyoming and meteors) At times like this, I look for the Cosmic Reset 

Crusher Joe: Ha Ha.

Wyatt: No, really. Remember 1999? The world died then too! ( 
http://www.eilertech.com/stories/me1999.htm#hung) But the gods helped us 
press a reset button, and we got better!

Crusher Joe: Then how 'come I don't remember that?

Wyatt: Could be the reality shift of 2000. Or 2002 and 2022. Or 2004 and 
45 B.C. Or 2005. Or 2006 and 1941. I saw most of those.

Crusher Joe: Okay, I get it. Sounds like we need a time machine.

Wyatt: Unfortunately, the only one we have will only take us to 1911. 

Crusher Joe: ehh... Whatever. So tell me more about this god reset button.

Wyatt: We have to go into The Dreamtime to press that. Not just dream, 
we have to go there physically. The gods hate it when humans do that. 
There are a lot of challenges on the way, more than ever now. Were you 
there when all the superhumans did that in 2005? 

Crusher Joe: Yeah. It sucked. But it sounds like we gotta be ready to. 
Who's high-powered we can send?

Wyatt: There're Ellipses... 

Crusher Joe: Not them!

Wyatt: Yeah, I agree... I guess there's the Powernaut!

I'll have plenty to say about Ellipsis and the multiple Ellipses in 
future episodes. Suffice it to say, I do prefer the Powernaut.

Constitution, which protects every American's right to shoot another
American.  This cherished constitutional right to shoot people and make
them dead is currently recognized in all fifty states, most recently
