And I had a hang-up over repeating the 5th grade?
Yay, me. I skipped the fifth grade.
Almost as long as Groundhog Day is supposed to have cycled February 2nd.

“…in an e-mail response send to Heeb magazine, Ramis said, “I think the 10-year estimate is too short. It takes at least 10 years to get good at anything, and allotting for the down time and misguided years he spent, it had to be more like 30 or 40 years.”
Regardless of whether it was ten, thirty or forty, that’s still several millennia short of eighty one thousand (1450×56).
that would give anyone a BSoD
55 BSoD if she found out each time
All of this has happened before, and all of it will happen again. Tee Hee.
…so say we all?
So say we all.
So say we all!
The Wheel of Time turns…
When I first heard that line on BSG, I was sure I had heard it before, and now I think I know where. I’d swear that was a line taken verbatim from the Time Prophet in Lexx, as she peered into the Future Past.
But then it’s such a classic time travel line, it probably exists in every story that discusses it. And I get the same confusion every time around…
That makes the gals approximately 81,200 years old.
Give or take a few hundred years.
Depends on how long it took from them being born and made into the Chimera and up to the point where Mayahuel tried to destroy the Calendar Machine. This could also be a few thousand years. Someone said on an earlier strips comment that it was made 8000 years ago. With them only having relived 1450 years, that gives us another 6550 years added to the 81,200, totaling in 87,750 years, give or take. Don’t know if the 8000 is correct though
Phix and Jin are that old, because they don’t reset at the end of the calendar. And there may be others. But anyone who gets reset “loses” all of the 1450 years each time.
At what point in all the looping did Brandi write the book. I could not be before the attempt to fix the calendar machine or she wouldn’t know what to write. I could not be after the repair attempt failed because she wouldn’t remember what happened.
Even if I assume there is a lag between the failure and the temporal drop back and Brandi writes very fast the result shouldn’t be available this early in the active loop unless Phix is cheating.
