John knew a guy who knew a guy...
Who vanished into the mists of time.
They said the timeline he arrived at wasn't the one they intended to send him to.
They didn't know why.
It was a blurry timeline from which our current GE units,
for unknown reasons, can't initiate time displacement.
"What if I get to the wrong 1975?" John thought for himself.
"Do they know what to do if that happens?"
With his departure scheduled in 3 days, John didn't sleep much that night.
