Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Back in the bar: Bok, Zander and Otto are finishing their drinks.
Caption: Moments earlier:
Bok: Well, I should call it a night. I've got a bunch of editing to do tomorrow.
Zander: Yeah, I've got work that won't do itself. What about you, Otto?
Otto: I don't think I'm drunk enough yet.
Suddenly the room shakes violently, startling everyone.
Bok: Otto, drinking alone is for … whuh?
The lights go out. It's completely dark, but through the magic of cartooning we can still see the characters' eyes.
Bok: A black-out? How … nostalgic.
Zander: Otto, we've only lived here a few years. How often do black-outs happen in the city?
Otto: Uh … never?
Caption: As it happens, lights are not the only thing in the city that requires power. There's also ...
The light comes back on, but so does the gravity. The people, chairs and drinks suddenly fall to the floor.
Everyone: Augh! Oof! Ow! Yawp!
Caption: … the electro-gravity.
