ROMAN SOLDIER: halt, strange person! where are you from?
TIME TRAVELER: i come from the future. what are your names?
ROMAN SOLDIER: my name is QUINTUS, as i am the fifth child in my family. my comrade is SEXTUS, for he was the sixth child in his family. what is your name?
ROMAN SOLDIER: [starts counting on his fingers as his eyes open in fear]

@HTHR alternate: my name is decimus

roman soldier: the tenth of your family?

time traveller: twelfth, you lot are really going to mess with the calendar in a couple hundred years

@HTHR I'm angry about the precise degree to which this works, which I think is a nuanced pun based art of induced fury

@HTHR Have you met my friend MIX? That guy’s got some stories

@HTHR this is still just as hilarious and amazing as the first time i saw it

@HTHR Wait... my name is Liv.


I'm a time traveler?

I have 51 siblings I never heard about?

@impiaaa @HTHR LIV, 54, is a processional number (3/4 of 72) The universal encoding of a geological warning, à la Hamlet's Mill, pervades this time-travelling epic.

@HTHR I honestly can't believe how many different times I've seen this ripped off online


You posted that in January????

I thought it was from last year!!

@HTHR I don't know how many times I've boosted this at this point, I still get a good belly laugh out of it
