Welcome Time Traveler to the
Rest Stop Imperpetuate.
Here you will find a brief respite from your toils of journeying through the past as you endeavor to find the present, and eventually the future.
To your right you will find a cot, blanket, pillow, earplugs, and alarm clock should you decide to partake of a long regenerative coma or brief refreshing trance.
To your left you will find the refreshment stand where you may partake of chilled spring water, juice, soda, wine, and several other selection, as well as a snack bar of assorted fruits, chocolates, nuts, candies, sandwiches, energy bars, pastries, pasta dishes, or even a nicely cooked steak and potato if it meets your desire.
Ahead and through the frosted glass door you will find a dressing room with a clean change of clothes, and facilities for attending to your personal hygiene. Every effort has been made to ensure a full selection of products and materials for your convenience has been included. Your benefactors of the future have come to understand that trudging through 20newpage old and older coffeebaconsanddandrufsemenoilcancerbabytonerlatexpaintdarkmatterantfarmtwoeggsandgritsholdthespamplease can become unpleasantly sticky and emit a less than fresh pixel scent, so feel free to make use of the auto-scrub 21 personal hygiene and sanitation booth, which will remove the offal from every square inch as well as from each hidden nook, cranny, and groove.
This facility is equipped with a Genuine People Personality and will happily engage you in conversation in any topic of your choosing so that you may distract yourself from the quite detailed and thorough job the auto-scrub 21 is doing.
Enjoy your rest here and journey on when ready.
With our compliments
- The Management.
EDIT: We are happy to ensure you that the auto-scrub 21 is the latest and greatest from Hygiene-O-Mat INC and suffers none of the problems that plagued the auto-scrub 20.
Edit2: Hygiene-O-Mat Inc has asked us to inform you also that they are financially stable and all law suits that stemmed from the auto-scrub 19 have been settled.
edit-3: The management is delighted to announce that the personal hygiene space has been upgraded to a classic Victorian claw-foot shower/tub, sink, vanity, and toilet, for your relaxed and emotional convenience, and that safety harness, topical insulation salves and grounding wire installation that were mandated by the courts for anyone foolish enough to approach within arms length of an auto-scrub 21, will no longer be necessary nor any longer an impediment to your enjoyment of the Rest Stop Imperpetuate.
Edit 4: Rest Stop Imperpetuate is pleased to announce that the wine and pastry selection has been greatly enhanced, owing to the tidy sum collected in the lawsuit against Hygiene-O-Mat over its auto-scrub 21, and that the management hopes the greater variety and offerings enhance your stay even more.
Edit 5: The management begs the forgiveness of the traveler for almost missing the most important part, instructions to activate this facility. Once this rest stop has drifted at least 5 forum pages into the past, it will activate and then stand ready to unlock and open to the travelers in the past who speaking their traveler name into the speaker at the right of the large iron door with the warning sign indicating the 50,000v security system for defense against trespassers from the present attempting unauthorized access without the accumulated gestalts of sufficient journeying in the past.
edit 6: We here at Rest Stop Imperpetuate are delighted to present you, traveler of the past, with a brand new non-electrified security door. We hope that the lack of a potentially fatal jolt that protects you and your accommodations against trespassers in no way diminishes your joy and pleasure during your stay, and we assure you that the charred bodies piled to the left will be removed promptly, if they have not already been done so. We apologize that the selections of wines for your aperitif have been reduced as operation overhead expenses have unfortunately gone up to pay for the lawsuits. We wish to assure you that the interior has not been breached and remains hermetically sealed awaiting your arrival.
Edit 7: a special premium service has been added to our deluxe service, just for you, the savvy and daring traveler, who when traversing the galaxy or the threads of time, is never without the MOST important of all travel accessories, your towel. We have bent the very fabric of space itself to retroactively incorporate into the design of Rest Stop Inperpetuate the finest in automated self servicing towel reconditioning, where it will be cleaned, dried, fluffed, and, to avoid the embarrassment of seeming to be a newbie with a store fresh towel who hasn't been across the street much less across time itself, we can reintroduce any desired stains or travel associated fluids a towel should have absorbed, to your specification using the finest ingredients, chemicals, and technology available within a thousand new frames/new pix. The management would like to retroactively thank you in advance for your custom, and ask that favorable comments you will have already made be annotated on the little 3x5 card next to the coffee maker.
EDIT-8: the Management is delighted to announce that this incarnation of Rest Stop Imperpetuate has achieved the necessary separation of 5 forum pages and has activated the interquantum reactor that will provide it with enough power to guarantee your stay will be uninterrupted by any loss of function. We would like to direct your attention to the large steel door in the back corner with the warning labels and flashing lights and remind you that close proximity to interquantum reactors can be hazardous to the continued existence of time travelers of your species, and that a handy fill in the blank last will and testament and disposition of remains request can be found on a clipboard on the bulkhead of the reactor if you should desire to ignore the steel door, warning lights, tripple-cypher locks, and robotic security guard stationed behind the door.
