On The Trail Of NT Wrong, Part 4,815,162,342

This post is being backdated from the future. By this time, in the year 2038, it has been proven impossible for individuals to travel through time, but transtemporal blogging has been shown viable. Using top secret research about which I can say no more lest I rewrite history more drastically than I already plan to, I am posting this to my earlier self and other bibliobloggers.

Give up the quest for NT Wrong’s identity. It will only cause you heartache. You will all spend the next 30 years of your lives on this and be no closer to the truth. You will throw away careers, family, money, and time, and have nothing to show for it. Please take my (I mean, of course, your own) advice on this. You will miss lots of episodes of Heroes and eventually even LOST as you devote increasing amounts of time to this vain project, not to mention time that could have been spent with your family, on research, or in other more useful endeavours.

In particular, make sure you don’t miss the 2009 bibliobloggers’ dinner in New Orleans. It was (sorry, I mean will be) a hoot!

    This post just indicates that you have found out who N.T. Wrong is, have been ushered into the inner circle, sworn to secrecy, and have now concluded your quest.At least you got a good Indian whilst up in Barnsley.

    Quest for NT Wrong vs. episodes of Lost and Heroes?My verdict: Quest for NT Wrong.If it had been a case of missing episodes of Doctor Who and Spooks, that would have been another matter.

    Dammit Jim, I’m a doctor not a temporal mechanic!Uh … wait a minute future Jimbo … I thought the search for truth was NOT a state function and that the PATH to truth was in fact often the most significant reward, not necessarily the achievement of absolute truth.Are we however to read into your message oh alternate reality James that the costs you mention were costs you incurred on your quest for truth?This the the thread that never ends … it just goes on and on my friends …
