GrandfatherBuk used to take hundreds of slides when he went on vacation. When he died GrandmotherBuk threw them all away, because literally no one except that old coot wanted to sit through those farking slide shows.

Given how many of their "there's no way such hyperbole could ever come true or be realistic" funny articles have come to understate what has actually happened in the past several years, I can understand why they might decide to deliberately start being as bland and unfunny as they possibly can, in order to try and save this timeline.

Sometimes the only way to responsibly use your superpowers is to vow to never use them at all.

Growing up dad was way into his photography including slideshows. Family would roll their eyes and say "not again?!"... well, half a century later, the slides and movies are the only media to have survived the years. We got the movies transferred to a vhs tape which...doesnt work anymore.  Never mind all the scenery, its just mindless pictures. The real precious stuff is all the holidays and family moments that dad filmed, those movies and the old projector still work fine, and when i bring them out the family, especially the younger ones, gather to have a glimpse of family whom theyve heard about but never seen.
