Comic #2239

1 Iki Piki: So if we create a good enough vacuum, the universe will simply restart itself?
1 Quercus: That's the theory.
2 Quercus: We just need to get a jar and connect it to a really good source of suction.
3 Iki Piki: Something that sucks harder than anything else?
3 Quercus: Yes.
4 Iki Piki: That's almost "insert your own punchline here".
4 Quercus: This conversation considered as a comedy routine, for example.

The best vacuum we can achieve here on Earth with current technology isn't a patch on outer space. Depending where exactly you are, space is a vacuum with thousands to millions of times less pressure than any vacuum chamber on Earth.

So I'm not sure where Quercus plans to get something that sucks hard enough to beat that...

2022-01-09 Rerun commentary: I see the Pope there in the background. I wonder what he would have to say on the idea of restarting the universe?

Just make it all make sense this time.
