    All that effort surfing the information superhighway means you have to loosen your tie.

    5 1/4 inch floppies in 1995?

    Weird Science, Amish style.

  4. B.Chiclitz Says:

    Clearly loose-tie boy and Amish girl are the same person. Todd, the roomie, is perplexed and undergoing an identity crisis about who it is he’s been sleeping with since the term started.

    Either that, or this UAI graduate only knows how to draw two different faces and thought we’d be fooled if one were male and one were female. Ha. You can’t get over on GSS that easily!

    Amish hypothesis aside, that outfit looks positively Victorian. I wonder, is it incest if you have sex with your great-great-great-grandmother? Because that at least, would explain the shared nose.

    Anthony Michael Hall gets typecast again. If he didn’t have the cosmetic surgery, he would be playing the same character into his 90’s. The go to actor for ‘nerdy virgin’ roles.
    What is he sitting on?

    “Time’s up on your time-traveling rumspringa. Are you boys ready to return to 17th century Pennsylvania?”

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    @FrancisBoyle This topic was covered in a Futurama episode, in which Fry travels to the past and tries to get his grandfather (who is gay) to sleep with his grandmother so that Fry can continuing existing (Back to The Future with a twist). It may be one of the funniest episode ever. Paradox ensues.

    Oh, the cyber-pain, the cyber-pain.

    There’s a girl in the clubhouse! Danger Will Robinson!

    I think all 3 of them are the same person. Sort of an “All You Zombies–” thing happening, only with computers and no talent in the writing. Or that “Futurama” episode, only with computers and no talent in the writing. Or “Weird Science”, only with obsolete computers* and no talent in the writing and a non-sexy woman.

    Victorian grandma is still going to be very, very popular after beaming into the boys’ boarding school, anyway.

    It was just one of those days: first you accidentally recreate your great-great-grandmother by an incautious use of online genealogical resources, then you lose her on the web while trying to send her back to the 19th century, and when she finally shows up again she’s possessed by Rlim Xexanoth-Chan, the Un-God of cyberspace.

    And that annoying Bob guy was there, too.

  13. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Bruce – Wow, downloading great-grandma on an AOL dial-up account. That would take forever!

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    Doesn’t that Paperclip thing have a message for this contingency? ‘You appear to be trying to download your ancestors. Do you require assistance?’. In Comic Sans, probably.

  15. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Bibliomancer – goddamn it, three hours and she’s still just a head!

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce, B’man:

    Kid at door: Anthony, it’s been two days! I don’t know how much longer I can keep the other boys out of the computer lab!

    Anthony Michael Hall: I should have gone to a school with a T1 line! I don’t wanna settle for half a girl!

    Victorian girl: I BEG your pardon, young sir?

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Surrounded by sterile, male white cisgender fascism, she had no choice — she activated her Wokeness Power. All the oppressors in the room froze in terror.

  18. Ryan Says:

    “Suddenly, the Three Investigators were swept forward 30 years in time into a strange new America, a time of incredible informational distribution and computing power, their secret office updated and upgraded to the most current of technologies, and also somewhere in the transformation, Pete had become a woman.”

    “Uh, Pete… is there something you haven’t told us?”
