Funnybone Timezone built a temporal scope. The viewing screen displayed the world as it was a million years ago. Funnybone placed ads in archaeology magazines, expecting researchers to jump at the chance to access such an instrument. She didn’t get any responses. This puzzled Funnybone until she realized most people would think the person who concocted such ads must be a lunatic. She understood their point of view. It was unnerving to see the world as it once was. She trained the instrument on herself and recorded the image. It showed a world under water. Funnybone’s presence was not needed.
