This… THIS is why speculative fiction writers should never be trusted with actual technology.

    As in most depictions of time travel you can only bring with you the bare necessities, I would recommend that Dan brings something like this

    This cast would have gone on longer, but the Time Cops showed up. Turns out Jean Claude Van Damme was right.

    Brandon- Did you intend to sound like a Dalek from “Dr Who” on this podcast? If so, you pulled it off beautifully! April Fool’s guys! :)

    Bah, how preposterous…to think Brandon would ever take over the world before my own plans for domination succeeded. April Fools indeed.

    Oh, Brandon could do it. He already has a whole army on his side. Haven’t you read his fan forums? Not to mention all those Allomancers and Fe-mutch-ya-call-its.

    Who is the sponsor for this episode?

    If I weren’t prepared for such things around this time, I’m sure I would have spewed milk.

    I was afraid that would happen someday. I really should do something about that well of ascension in my back yard.

    What’re you talking about? The angry (/weird/other) looks are the best part!

    I reckon that by Season 20 (maybe 21) you will come around to Episode 632 – what will happen? It is maybe only 6 or 7 years away. Will there be a breach in the space-time continuum? Will Cyber Bran-Don emerge from a wormhole with his legion of llama-mounted Allomancers to enact his evil plan for world domination? Can Howard and Dan foil his evil plan by saving him?

    I guess we’ll just have to ‘can-of-worms’ that…
