Peter's Thoughts

There is a measurable though little-known phenomenon on the subject of general relativity, whereby a clock that travels faster drifts behind one that travels slower, to a degree that's very slight but proportional to the difference in speed. That is to say, of course, that some strange and unintuitive results may be acquired in the measurement or perception of time when you begin to deal with very high speeds.

It is unclear from the feverish notes in Nixy's journal whether he means that they will perceive the passage of only 30 minutes on their way to the Caribbean Sea, or whether the world around them will advance by only 30 minutes, especially since the sketchy details he provided are lost among extensive documentation on the flora & fauna of Venice, and on how they differ from what he expected. But judging from the nature of the small portion of their journey recorded here, they may not have even planned to follow the curvature of the earth.

Transcript

"Come on, Timby! Hurry up!

"It'll take 30 minutes to row from Venice to Venezuala."

"But Nixy, this isn't–"

"Don't talk, just row."

The street! 0_0 Timby looks horrified too... Love Contradictionary. I heard my twitter go off before I got up, went here, looked at the comic, and went back to bed. I love it that much! Thanks, Peter!

But... but....

But... WHY!?

You know, Peter, I love the blog entries that go with the Contradictionaries almost as much as the Contradictionaries themselves.

"But judging from the nature of the small portion of their journey recorded here, they may not have even planned to follow the curvature of the earth." X-D

I don't think Timby was involved in much of the planning.

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Thanks, guys! :D

What just happened?

I love these guys! Such nerve! such determination!

I especially like the way Timby just jumps when Nixy tells him to. Where can I find such a willing minion?

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

lol

They're not exactly minions, but I've observed your children being as willing as Timby when you ask/tell them to do something, lol.

I love it. It makes me want to go paddle a canoe down the highway. ;)

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

That's definitely a “don't try this at home” moment right there… @-D
