    Hi, peoploids!

    Since most of us spend too much time on forums and have an above average interest in SciFi, I thougt you might enjoy this (very) short story - Wikihistory, by Desmond Warzel. It'll take you 2 minutes to read, and it is well worth it :D

    Hope you like it!

    It's a clever and realistic approach to how we would handle time travel. It has the proper Looper sense of not trying to explain the process since the focus is on the silliness and the comparison to issues that plague Internet community today

    Sadly the stuff I write is far darker in tone and I think my girlfriend/editor would literally kill me if I released another short story instead of submitting it to a journal

    I just liked how forumy it was. Especially that guy calling everyone a racist. There's always someone!
