The Plumbot Uprising

Welcome back to the Mendeleev ISBI, where…

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.45.17 AM

Um… Houston? We have a problem.

Yttrium: Don’t make crappy jokes when I’m DYING! D8

Don’t you want to see what happens? Where’s your scientific curiosity?

Yttrium: Um, NO!

… I feel like the time paradox thing should only happen if you’re a future sim or related to one…

Yttrium: Stop nit-picking and SAVE ME.

*sigh* *sends her to hospital*

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.49.38 AM

Oops, Yttrium’s dead. Here’s our new TH.

Yttrium: Not funny.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.51.14 AM

Nah, here she is! Safe and sound, playing with Vaughn.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.52.22 AM

Then she made a teddy bear.

Mr. Bear: You’re new in town. Prepare to be abandoned and unloved. No one plays with us.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.52.41 AM

Vaughn: Anyway, Tricia doesn’t even know. Class president is a joke title. She’s just a figurehead for the teacher, you know?

Technetium: Um… sure. Yeah, you’re so right.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.54.04 AM

You may have noticed that Yttrium had the wish to woohoo her husband. She’s had that for a while now. So of course Nervous decides to stay late after work (he was ALREADY working late that day, too) and read a book in his graduation robes.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.55.16 AM

Palladium: Hey, you’re that lady I see around sometimes. : /

Yttrium: Who’s a cute baby? You are! YOU won’t brush me off for work! 😀

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.57.40 AM

Technetium: I’ll just ignore the bubbling family tension and work on painting. Maybe when I’m an adult I can be a troubled artist and sell my work.

You can’t even mix convincing skin colors. : /

Technetium: She’s fuchsia, representing confidence, assurance, and a nurturing love. All lacking in my life right now.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.00.08 AM

Get robo maids, guys. They teach skills to toddlers. Although I think this means that Rhodium’s gonna grow up bilingual in English and binary. Or English and R2-D2.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.04.05 AM

Yttrium: Quick, my love! To the shower!

Nervous: Oops, work.

Yttrium: I am displeased.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.05.04 AM

So when a guy Yttrium had found attractive before calls her out on a date, I may have clicked the ‘yes’ button for her…

Yttrium: OFF the phone. I am not gonna be ignored by you too. : /

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.05.56 AM

Just a quick fling and then when Nervous comes home she can fulfill that want. EASY PEASY.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.07.09 AM

Vaughn: So have you noticed that the ghosts aren’t coming out? Probably ’cause you’re ugly.

Technetium: *snicker* … hey…

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.09.05 AM

I underestimated the reputation system. And the fact that Yttrium’s a celebrity for some reason. : /

Nervous: How could you! D8

Yttrium: I was weak! I needed a man who doesn’t wear his graduation robes everywhere! D8

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.10.07 AM

… eh, why not? Not like this can get messed up any more. And it’s not like Nervous wasn’t dating two sisters at once before… I mean, he would have been if he’d actually showed up those times.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.11.30 AM

Yttrium follows him.

Yttrium: Okay, I got alcohol in my system, so nerves aren’t gonna stop me from kissing you and rekindling our love.

Nervous: I’m just gonna route fail until I have to go to work.


Nervous: I got a promotion. : /

Zirconium: … this date turned out way different than I imagined, and in all the right ways. *wishes for popcorn*

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.12.29 AM

And then it was Yttrium’s birthday, which I forgot.

Yttrium: Happy birthday to me, pole! You’re my only friend.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.13.12 AM

Yttrium: I grew out my hair, to look more mature.

I’ll allow it.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.17.28 AM

Yttrium: Look, mommy got a makeover.

Palladium: Woman, I see you little enough as it is. Now you confound me with disguises?

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.18.19 AM

Yttrium: That holo-thing is really cool, actually.

Technetium: I know, right? I should probably care more about my hungry sister, but this llama-petting app is way more important. I didn’t know that Emily did holograms!

On a completely unrelated note, did you know you can just go up to plumbots in the future and steal their personality chips for your own selfish needs?

Emily: Yes… distract them with shiny… >8D

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.19.00 AM

After work, Nervous went to the beach. And swam. And swam. And swam. I think he was trying to drown himself.

… that’s not even a joke. Like, I seriously thought he was gonna end it. : (

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.23.18 AM

Yttrium: Ignoring husband to eat yogurt that TV says I need.

Tried to find a picture where the yogurt has to tell the body where poop goes and there are arrows and stuff. Instead I found this pic from a Japanese commercial. O_o

I needed to share it. It compelled me with its dark will.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.24.56 AM

Yttrium: So… gardening? That’s sexy, right? Historically, gardening if prelude to woohoo.

Nervous: Trying to swim until I die is exhausting. I think I’m gonna go to bed. : /

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.29.09 AM


Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.29.23 AM

GUYS. Did you know you could woohoo in a jetpack? I did not.

Technetium: Why did you have to be on me for that announcement? D:

Because it’s your birthday.

Technetium: Oh. Yay me.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.41.45 AM

She’s pretty. :3

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.42.17 AM

As full of beauty as she is empty of common sense. It is, like, 2 AM, you have school tomorrow, and you DON’T EVEN HAVE THE ATHLETIC TRAIT.

Technetium: Yes I do. I just got that trait.

Oh… my other points still stand.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.43.56 AM

Along with points that still stand, remember how I said Emily is scary and possibly evil? LOOK AT THE TOY SHE MADE.


Disregard Yttrium being pummeled by her spouse.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.44.11 AM

Yeah… apparently Nervous is done putting up with Yttrium’s crap.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.44.24 AM

I love how neutral their faces are afterwards. : /

Nervous won, by the way.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.46.06 AM

Then he has another date with Zirconium.

Nervous: So we’re enemies now. 🙂

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.47.15 AM

Yttrium deals with her midlife crisis/loss of husband (I had them break up since he kind of beat her up) by kissing the robot.

By that I mean that I found the ‘romantic’ actions with Emily and thought that human love would stop her from trying to kill all biological lifeforms.

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 10.48.19 AM

She didn’t like it, and the next thing I know Yttrium tries to turn off Emily.

Lots of fails next time, though. 😉 And I remember that I promised to take the family on outings; we’ll do that once the toddlers can walk and actually do things.

Are You My Mommy?

So I realized today that a momentous occasion passed without being recognized… as far as I can tell with my trusty Periodic Table poster, Technetium is our first radioactive child!

Welcome to the new age, to the new age…

Or do we prefer Marina and the Diamonds?

My heart is nuclear, love is all that I feeeeeear~!

Okay, back to the idiots.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.18.02 AM

The twins had a birthday! So we get to see what Ruthenium looks like. I’m seeing a lot of Nervous Subject at the moment. I’m not entirely sure where the eyes are from, though.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.19.14 AM

Rhodium also grew into the terrible twos. Off the top of my head, I’m thinking she got Mommy’s eyes and Grandma Olive’s hair. I’m not sure if Olive has black tips but she’s the only way I can see the baby being born with white hair. Looks like it in the picture, though. The black tips on Olive.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.20.33 AM

Why did I take this?

Yttrium: Hell if I know.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.21.11 AM

Time to play with the jet pack! Why? Because JET PACK!!

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.22.18 AM

She crashed, and then I remembered you can die from these things and got nervous. So I sent her home.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.24.29 AM

Emily: Good night, small human. I shall care for you while your mother recklessly risks her life.

Rhodium: Mama!

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.26.25 AM

Hey, the children are starting to think the robot maid is their mother instead of you.

Yttrium: That’s nice. I’m working on a new wine recipe. I mean juice. Yeah.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.30.12 AM

My god does Palladium take after her daddy. Except for the hair and eyes, of course. If I was paying for a baby, I was gonna get my money’s worth and get the whole ‘genetically modified’ deal to go along with it. It’s nice to know we’ve unlocked the gene for teal hair in the future.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.21.52 AM

Rhodium: I LOVE MOMMY!

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.22.22 AM

Uh… Yttrium?

Yttrium: Nervous is performing on the cool light show thing! He sucks at it, but whatever, it looks cool.

Okay… I won’t bother you then.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.22.45 AM

Emily: I am programmed to change a child’s dirty diaper before too much time elapses… but I am also programmed not to interrupt a human who is otherwise busy… I must deliberate on which of these commands to follow…

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.28.21 AM

Someone left Rhodium stranded in the high chair. At least she still looks happy and I’m not hearing her screaming. Emily rescues the child before the situation gets dire, because of course she does. Emily rocks. And might be against the rules of the ISBI on some level. Like, the spiritual level? I’ll kick her out with the kids when it’s time for them to leave home.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.29.22 AM

Vaughn skipped school. I’m not even sure if she’s ever been, or even enrolled, but she spends the time home (sort of) alone doing homework.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.29.38 AM

So I locked in surrounded by friends ’cause the empty LTW looked sad and, hey, maybe she could achieve it on her own somehow. Then she rolled a subsequent wish (didn’t even know that was possible) for THIS: EMPEROR OF EVIL.



Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.29.45 AM



Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.31.28 AM

Let’s ignore the evil robot for now, since I used some LTH points for Yttrium to buy a time remote so we can play around with the timestream without needing to do anything!

Yttrium: My life is so freaking easy. You set this to Utopia?


Yttrium: It looks kinda ominous.

Just jump in the time portal like a good girl.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.36.51 AM

Yttrium: Hey, I look cool coming out this thing. Snap a picture.

Done and done.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.36.58 AM

Yttrium: I thought you said Utopia.

Um… so maybe I was thinking of the Doctor Who episode…

I couldn’t find a good picture of how crummy the world looked to live in, so here’s a bug girl.

Yttrium: I hate you.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.37.37 AM

Yttrium: I really hate you.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.40.55 AM



Yttrium: Eurgh.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.42.07 AM

Ohay, a Mendeleev.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.42.19 AM

Wait, what? … after extensive research* I have come to find that Jaime Bannister is indeed a pre-made sim, rather than some random name they gave. I’m not sure how much of an homage is his to Jaime LANNISTER, though, since his wife doesn’t seem to be his sister (he’s an only child) and he doesn’t have a bratty son named, like, Geoffrey or something.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.47.13 AM


… I probably shouldn’t be so reckless with my TH.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.47.25 AM

D8 I REALLY shouldn’t be so reckless with my TH!

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.47.53 AM

Yttrium ended up getting a raincloud hanging above her head, which was a lot more comedic than I had assumed. What with the FLAMES SHOOTING OUT and all.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.48.50 AM

This poor robot fell into the hole.

Haha, robot. Haha.

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 10.49.36 AM

I made Yttrium try that one, too. You’re glowing, dear. Positively radiant.

Yttrium: Thank you. ^_^

Unconventional Family Additions

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.14.45 AM

Emily: This unit enjoys caring for the small human bundles.

That’s good, Emily. I’m happy. Live your life and one day you may earn your freedom move on to bigger and better things.

Slavery is okay if the person you’re enslaving is made of metal.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.15.13 AM

We got a fluctuation in the timestream that affects the future or something. Meh. Unless the whole world became 1984 or Planet of the Apes or something, I’m not all that interested in keeping up on the day-to-day lives of the future Mendeleevs.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.16.04 AM

Wait… we have a BUTLER?

Emily: I have taken the liberty to speak with some human reporters. I hope this was not ‘overstepping my boundaries’.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.16.22 AM

Emily: Excuse me, sir. Caring for human young is my prime directive.

Krypton: It’s alright. I got it.

Emily: *silent seething rage at being denied purpose*

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.18.44 AM

Oyay. More imaginary friends.

Bear: That’s fine! Not like I wanted kids to play with me anyway. : (

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.22.19 AM

Robot: At least they MIGHT have played with you. I’m a cruddy version of something they could play with for real!

Emily: You are my baby.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.25.48 AM

The only good IF is Vaughn! And Binky. And Old Lace… but still! Vaughn is allowed because he’s named after my dearly departed gnome. : (

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.26.37 AM

Krypton dies while helping Emily to take care of the babies…

Since he was last seen blocking Emily’s path, it is slightly suspicious, but I’m assuming Emily follows the 3 laws of robotics. Or at least the law about not harming humans.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.26.56 AM

Look, she’s really sad! : (

Emily: Heart-drive overloading. Not enough memory to store all of the feels.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.27.11 AM

Krypton: Well, good-bye, my grandson. I lived a long life. Founded a legacy. Became one of those ghosts that always freaked me out.

Ruthenium: *storing these memories so they can be dredged up during a therapy session later in life*

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.27.27 AM

Death: DAMMIT.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.28.31 AM

Krypton: I’m fine, guys. You don’t have to worry…

Yttrium: WAH! Daddy died and I can’t stop the baby from SCREAMING because his GHOST is in the way!

Death: Seriously? I had to take time to walk around the entire house. You had enough time, get over it already.

I love that Death gets a memory for seeing a ghost or something, so he gets a :I face over his head and it just looks like he’s tired of his job every time. Like he wants to retire to Hawaii or something.

Death: Sims 2 Death had it so much better.

And I didn’t get a picture of the grave. Next time.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.32.29 AM

Technetium doesn’t have a bed. … whoops.

Er… this can be her room now. Fixed!

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.32.56 AM

Aw, Emily charges. And dreams. But not of electric sheep.

Emily: Robo-Dad, no! I don’t wanna go to robo-boarding school. D:

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.42.59 AM

Speaking of college.

Llama: Want to enroll in higher education? If I recruit enough people the fraternity will let me take off this costume… and sleep indoors.

Not right now.

Llama: 😦

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.44.26 AM

We’ve got something more important to do.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.48.21 AM

Testing out more future stuff! Actually I wanted to try the ‘genetic engineering’ thing and they were too tired to go straight there.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.50.25 AM

… way to go, Nervous.

Of all the food the future food maker thing could give you, you chose leftover birthday cake. Because there’s no way you’re ever going to have birthday cake while living in a LEGACY FAMILY.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.51.25 AM

See? Yttrium had the right idea, even though I’m not actually sure what she ordered. But whatever. It looked fancy.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.51.48 AM

She eats breakfast with the future guy. I want his hair color. That is all.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.52.45 AM

Yttrium fails at future elevators.

Yttrium: : /

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.54.05 AM

Then I sent her into the movie theater, except in the future instead of movies you go on 3D Adventures or something. Which would be impressive, but I’m pretty sure that’s the same thing the VR goggles in the present do. Maybe it’s ‘3D Adventures without having to wear silly stuff on your head.’

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.55.01 AM

We didn’t go to the hospital right away because Nervous was talking to future guy Emit Relevart about the Happy Lake Monster.

Emit: The hunt for lake monsters? That’s SO last decade. The big cryptid of the week is the Beast of Bladenboro.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.57.10 AM

I decided to go with the ‘genetic manipulation’ route with the baby because I am spending 5000 on a caterpillar sim, so I am sure as hell gonna use that money I spend and pick out hair and eye color.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.59.03 AM

So meet Palladium! Yayyy! Palladium is evil and artistic.

Yttrium: This one’s my favorite! I didn’t need to carry her around in my stomach!

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 10.59.54 AM

Yttrium: I’ll just leave her on the ground.

Yup. Yttrium and Nervous just left the baby on the ground to go through the time portal. Luckily, she somehow makes it through on her own.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.02.43 AM

Yttrium: Good baby. You have proven yourself fit for survival.

Emily: You’re blocking my way to the infant… just as Krypton did before he died! *mechanical sob*

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.03.50 AM

I wasn’t sure if I commanded Emily on anything yet, so I decided to have her scan somebody to see what happened. If I used up the interaction already, it’s not a big deal, since I’m pretty sure the ‘scan’ doesn’t affect anything too much anyway.

Emily: Scanning genitals… comparing pictures with database to ascertain relative temperature, or ‘hotness’…

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.04.20 AM

Yttrium: Okay. Reprogram time.

Emily: But… the infant is emitting noises of discomfort…

Yttrium: Don’t care. No checking out my husband. Reprogram.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.05.41 AM

Vaughn: And that’s why you should leave leftovers on your plate. Because your parents don’t see me and don’t make food for me themselves.

Technetium: I’m kind of still caught up on my grampa leaving. Can we do this later?

Hey, Tech. Did I use an interaction for you?

Technetium: Just to do my hair and clothes.

Okay then…

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.05.56 AM

Technetium: I’ve been informed that it’s time to give this to you.

Vaughn’s gonna be a REAL BOY!!

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.06.13 AM

… or not.

I honestly thought that Vaughn was a boy IF…

Vaughn: You’ve been calling me a boy for years, Techie. Not pleased.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.10.56 AM

Then she goes on the teeter totter and is joined by Yttrium.

Yttrium: So you’re one of Technetium’s friends?

Vaughn: You could say that.

Yttrium: Alright. What’s your name again?

Vaughn: Vaughn, Mrs. Mendeleev.

Yttrium: Oh, that’s what Technetium calls her little dolly, too. ^_^

Vaughn: *seethes* I am aware.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.11.32 AM

Yttrium got this for her wedding or being a celebrity. Or something. I’m not entirely sure. I think it’s kind of like an instrument thing with lasers.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.11.59 AM

Yttrium: Wild thing… doo doo… you make my heart sing… doo doo…

That’s not relating to chemistry!

Yttrium: Hey, we’re not all nerds like… *counts on fingers* *gives up* Gramma Ellie.

Screen Shot 2013-12-28 at 11.16.01 AM

Vaughn got a makeover, and I changed her hair color because she got the same one as Technetium. Vaughn is adventurous, rebellious, and hot-headed. Also a possible spouse, even if we pick another female heir. Because I think you can make a future baby with two female sims? We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Back to the Front to the Future

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.08.37 AM

Now that Laurel died, the house seems very… very… empty.

Nervous: I need a drink.

First of all, I can’t do that. Second of all… no. At least one of you needs to stay somewhat sober to take care of the baby. Now man up.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.09.33 AM

Ohey, the fox thing floats on her shoulder. And you’re not looking too upset about this death thing, either, Yttri.

Yttrium: I’m keeping a smile on for the baby.

Oh, is that it?

Yttrium: Also the drinks help.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.10.32 AM

Krypton gets asked out on a date later that day. By Olive. Who you might recognize as being Nervous’ mother, even if you don’t have this town and just know her from Sims 2. I expected him to die on the way there, like… his age bar’s full and he’s going on a date with Olive Specter.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.11.20 AM

At the graveyard.

Krypton: You know, this is in poor taste, considering what just happened in to my wife. In more than one way.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.15.11 AM

Yttrium: Must… keep… smiling… for… baby…

Baby’s tired too. Yttrium and Technetium are psychically linked or some such. I swear.

Of course, Yttrium goes into labor right as she’s going to bed.

Yttrium: Shit, I lost a friend! Who is it?

Hell if I know.

Of course, since I wanted a little girl baby to call Ruthie, Ruthenium is a boy baby. But you know what? Screw that and gender norms and everything. We’re calling him Ruthie. SO THERE, PSYCHIC GAME. That’s what you get for trying to ruin my adorable nickname plans!

Ahem. Ruthie hates the outdoors, and is excitable.

Bear: And his favorite color is lime! 8D I’ll have someone to PLAY with me again! *wipes little stuffed tear away from his eye*

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.17.20 AM

Yttrium: I can’t put this baby in the crib ’cause there’s another one in the way. Delete it with a cheat or something. : /

Um… no. I’m going to go ahead and say that it’s the sleep deprivation talking like that, right?

Yttrium: Sure. And the fact that I’m STILL IN LABOR. The baby is in the barrel and READY TO LAUNCH.

Hey, whaddaya know. The newborn play mat thing is useful for something.

And then Rhodium is a girl. Just to mock me. She’s an absent-minded artist.

Yttrium: I can go to bed now?

So before Yttrium can get up and have me send her to the future, Techie grows up. She is now eco-friendly, athletic, and artistic. I may have been a little overeager to use the Future hair and clothes, but I think she looks cute. I decided why not bring her along for the future trip as well.

Which is my segue into this, since I didn’t get a picture of them going INTO the vortex thing:

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.35.41 AM

Yttrium: Look out, future! Mother of twins coming through!

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.36.04 AM

Technetium: Sh… sh… It’s okay, Vaughn. We’re okay.

Vaughn: Why the hell are you treating me like a baby. : /

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.37.34 AM

So yeah. Here we all are. The future. And stuff.

Technetium: Mom, do people carpool in the future?

Yttrium: Hell if I know, but we are. Going to go visit some descendents I somehow know that we have.

Technetium: Yay! Carpooling!

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.38.27 AM

Future Guy: Hi, my name is Phil…


Sorry. I’ll… um. Be over there.

Yttrium: Hello. My name is Yttrium. Mendeleev. I’m like your ancestor or something?

Phil: Oh, that’s good. I was worried you were like my half sister or something. With the resemblance and all.

Yttrium: Does this mean that we complete the legacy and make it all the way to the end of the periodic table?

Phil: Spoilers.

Then Yttrium goes off and does stuff that I didn’t take pictures of. It was just meeting more people, really.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.40.29 AM

Technetium: What should we do first in the future, Vaughn? See if the cars are powered by sunlight?

Phil: Um… shouldn’t you be going with your mother?

Technetium: Don’t tell your great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother what to do!

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.40.57 AM

The family size is apparently ‘average’ right now. Oh, and we’re ‘destitute’. Interesting.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.43.09 AM

Lady: :O WHA WHA WHAT? It’s Yttrium Mendeleev! Act cool, act cool!

Oh right. Yttrium’s a celebrity, so I guess this would kind of be like us meeting… I don’t even know… Jane Austen? Although I’m sure there were tons of celebrities in the past we don’t even remember, so why meeting Yttrium Mendeleev would be a big deal…

But really I took this because I love her hair.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.47.00 AM

Nervous ends up talking on the phone with one of his descendents.

Nervous: And then she just up and died! … What? … I mean, yes, I guess it makes sense that this is ancient history for you…

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.47.21 AM

Technetium: I found a pool.

That’s nice.

Technetium: It’s a waste of water and our natural resources.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.53.16 AM

Yttrium went to the robot store, and made this with some sort of machine.


It’s called a nanite but I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.54.44 AM

Then I saw what I’m pretty sure was a robot shopping for ANOTHER robot to fulfill her sexual needs. Sexbotception, if you will. This one, apparently, did not fit the bill.




Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.55.57 AM

Oh, and we got a future dress. And a robot. She is a self-aware robot, so I let her name herself. So meet Emily. Emily was, as far as I can tell, built as a nanny bot, but we just got her because of the cool factor.

Yttrium: And so I can drink without getting nagged about how the babies need me.

Screen Shot 2013-12-25 at 11.56.29 AM

She’s a shiny one.

Emily: Electronic Mechanical Individual Looking after Young is ready for duty.

Makin’ bacronyms like a boss.

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.07.52 AM

For those who are interested, Emily is a high tech bot who is a solar powered, sentient robonanny with friendly functions and the capacity to love. Which means she’s just an adorable bot who will hopefully get on great with the kids.

I mean, we know Technetium will like her with the solar power, at least.

Nervous: I found a small child.

Girl: Why are you waiting outside my house? o_o

Screen Shot 2013-12-26 at 9.09.28 AM

Since it was a wish of Yttrium’s we check out the legacy statues. I’m making it a personal goal to get one of these to have a family member on it. Because it’s called a legacy statue. Come on.

Technetium: Beam me up, Scotty!

Oh, and Molybdenum and Niobium.
