Comic #2715

1 Jamie: Wait! If we travel in time, might the Earth not move from under us and we end up drifting somewhere in space?
2 Adam: But there is no preferred reference frame, so the time machine can't be fixed with respect to any particular one in which the Earth moves.
3 Jamie: Nor one in which it doesn't move!
3 Adam: Hmmm, true. Now there's a conundrum.
4 Jamie: How will we resolve it?
4 Adam: Experimentally!
4 SFX: click!
