Scenes from a Multiverse by Jon Rosenberg for September 01, 2015
Alien 1: You remember that one time? In college? Alien 2: You mean when we strapped a billion freshmen onto volcanoes on that remote planet and detonated the volcanoes with H-bombs so their souls would wander the planet for eternity until they can eventually bond with the soul of a living being in a desperate attempt to reclaim their past lives? Yeah good times. Alien 1: Nobody pulls original pranks like that anymore. It's all hackneyed panty raids and laser guillotines. What happened to creativity? Alien 2: No such thing. Even artists like us have their influences. The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. Alien 1: Who said that? Alien 2: I did. With my mouth.
