Every day now for the past five years I have been subjecting myself to the comic strip "Alley Oop". Why, I am not sure because it has to be one of the stupidest comic strips ever written. Maybe it was better years ago when the original authors were still alive, but the current yahoos that write the strip have no logical consistency whatsoever, and still I can't resist reading it everyday.
Alley Oop is about a caveman who has become the willing accomplice of a group of current day time travelers led by a Dr. Wonmung. The Doc has lately lost what little brains he ever had because he apparently
does not know how to repair his damaged time machine that he built. So a few months back he turned to the want ads to find someone who could fix it for him - and who shows up but one of his nephews from the future traveling back in a future time machine. Now if Wonmung was unable to keep his own time machine operational, how did his descendants advance the process and even have the technology in the future? Can't they see the fallacy here? Apparently not. Oh well, tomorrow Oop will probably do something so utterly stupid that I will forget about the other problems in the storyline.
