|time travel back to....1965: GI Joe|
Growing up, I could not avoid the belief that Joe was a cheap knock-off of Barbie and girls who played with Barbie dolls had the better options both in the domain of intriguing secondary sex characteristics and diversity of accessories. I suspect that most guys preferred to be outside running around rather than trying to figure out how to make Joe's absurdly rigid plastic hands hold a gun.
|God accessory: AK-47.|
I've long wondered about the fascination of NRA members for automatic weapons. I guess I missed the chapter in the Bible that deals with God's AK-47.
In Star Dance (A.K.A. The Dancing Earth), Grean disguises her advanced technology behind a poorly constructed facade of magical powers. Grean is in the middle of the Time War, a protracted struggle between Gohrlay and her band of positroninc robots and the alien Huaoshy.
The Einstein action figure (image to the right) apparently only has one accessory: a piece of chalk. With that wild hair, they should have talked Barbie into providing Einstein with a comb.
In Chapter 3 of Star Dance, I provide a fictional "solution" to the mystery of Einstein's daughter, Lieserl (who is also mentioned in this previous blog post). I imagine that a "magic trick" was performed by Interventionist agents on Earth in order to assure that Lieserl had strong telepathic powers. Her telepathic abilities cause Lieserl to have a miserable life on Earth as a little girl, but she was sent to the Galactic Core where she could lead a happy life and become the mother of Bet.

Raised by a ballet dancer who had been brought from Earth to Tar'tron just for the purpose of educating Lieserl, she became a great dancer and passed her love for dance on to her daughter, Bet. Grean, in her role as Hortensia, made use of Bet's dancing and telepathic skills to shape a new future for Earth, the Buld Reality, the world as we know it.
