C. B. Boff's Proclamations
Through great archeological efforts by our companion on this trip, Rex
Ridenoure, President and CEO of
we are now able to present this important missive
from Dr. Boff. Written in the year 1999 of the current era (please make
careful note of the year), it includes a discussion of the change in the
millenium and an admonishment that we should attempt to travel eastward at
the appropriate time so as to maximize our speed through the universe.
In the earlier days at JPL, it was planned that there would be an open house
with the public invited. Among other things, computer generated movies were
to be shown of the possible future meetings. It was felt that if we were going
to show movies that we should also provide popcorn to go with them. This led
to consternation when funding was requested for this. The
Parable of the Popcorn was written describing this.
