An absentee vote for the future

Uncle’s Shorts #35

In this week’s Short, several of us are looking to the future: babies, high school students, teachers and voters. Also, there are goats. Remember, we can’t go backwards, yet.

One of my favorite theories of time travel is that, it is possible, but we will not be able to travel back in time before the mechanism for time travel was invented. This neatly dispenses with the argument that, “Well, if we invent time travel in the future, where are all the time travelers? Wouldn’t they be all over? Possibly making their past, and our present, some kind of terrible tourist exhibition?” This argument posits, “They will do that! But not yet to us.”

But, anyway … We’re so excited to continue expanding our repertoire beyond vlogging. Really, through the next few weeks — and maybe until the end of time — we will be introducing all kinds of new segments that aim to examine Luzhou — and through that, the world — more closely, and via different points of view. I’m very pleased that my friend Angel was able to join us to share a little bit of her life with us. You’ll be seeing more of her — and of Jessi — in future videos.
