        I’m an alternative universe Titor. Or rather a colleague of his.

        In my timeline, 2036 was marked by the realization that most of society’s ills were due to a devastating shortage of striped tube socks and headbands. That’s the reason Titor and I were originally sent to 1975.

        Unfortunately I got like drunk or high or messed up somehow and accidently stepped on a butterfly that turned out to be Titor’s great grandpappy. So without his part of the code needed to unlock our time machine I was stranded in the past.

    hopeful they’lluse the loan to buy meth
    and sell it to the kids
    better for them than edumacation

  3. How much you want to bet that they’ve got it so you can roll that debt into your student loan?
