Phone conversation with myself and Rammellzee (first voice), from October, 19th, 2007:

“You like oysters, boss?”
“Sure.”
“I’ve got a spot over here for you. We can watch the boats sink.”
“Okay.”
“I’ll let you hold the bomb.”
“Thanks.”
“Do you know anyone at the Smithsonian Institute?”
“Working on that one.”
“You need to talk to someone in the Department of Space.”
“Okay.”
“The Andromeda Galaxy is going to be here in 5 million years. It will consume this galaxy.”
“Uh-oh.”
“This means something to me.”
“Of course.”
“It’s sending a master blaster radio cloud ahead of itself.”
“When?”
“That one will be here in 10,000 years.”
“Shit.”
“I know it’s a little far off, but you might want to take a look at it.”
“And finish my book before it happens?”
“EXACTLY!”
“Okay.”



Time enough.



Thanks Hua for digging this up from your inbox.

Thanks Dr. Quatermass and Five Milli for the original on-screen face melt.
