Pull quote aligned right

You see? It’s curious. Ted did figure it out – time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it’s possible, how it’s done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the space craft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an unknown entry event? [pull_quote align=”right”]You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind of it’s own.[/pull_quote] Why don’t they know? If they don’t know, that means we never told anyone about it. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it out. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us more than a week just to climb out. Now, I don’t know exactly when we turned on each other, but I do know that seven of us survived the slide… and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I’m breaking now. We said we’d say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn’t. Nature is lethal but it doesn’t hold a candle to man.

The lysine contingency – it’s intended to prevent the spread of the animals is case they ever got off the island. Dr. Wu inserted a single faulty enzyme in protein metabolism. The animals can’t manufacture the amino acid lysine. Unless they’re continually supplied with lysine by us, they’ll slip into a coma and die.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show’s called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they’re going to make more shows. [pull_quote align=”left”]It’s curious. Ted did figure it out – time travel.[/pull_quote]Some pilots get picked and become television programs. Some don’t, become nothing. She starred in one of the ones that became nothing.

You see? It’s curious. Ted did figure it out – time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it’s possible, how it’s done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an ‘unknown entry event’? Why don’t they know? If they don’t know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
