What’s the Matter? Pt. 3

Stephen Hawking starts

Ned: Seeing the finger of God smash the robots of science makes ya think, doesn’t it, Dr. Hawking?
Stephen Hawking: I’m always thinking! What does it look like I’m doing?
Bart: Don’t have a cow, man! That’s what I used to say as a boy.
Stephen Hawking: The Sky Finger is not a god. It’s a natural phenomenon, easily explainable by, uh, basic laws of physics that we don’t yet understand.
Ned: Then how is it that the Sky Finger can make us do his or her bidding, with a simple tap of his or her mighty finger?
Bart: Let’s just assume it’s a him.
Bart: And that his cubicle is littered with vending machine pastry wrappers.
Stephen Hawking: I respect your ludicrous blathering, Ned. But the Sky Finger does not control me.

Task: Make Stephen Hawking DJ Some Tunes
Time: 1h

Stephen Hawking: Okay. I acknowledge that the Sky Finger is an entity of power. But it’s still not a god.
Stephen Hawking: For no god would force me to spin records all day!
Ned: The Lord works in mysterious ways. Can I get an amen and a little more subwoofer?

What’s the Matter? Pt. 4

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: Whatever the Sky Finger is, it must be governed by the laws of science. To fall back on supernatural explanations means giving up the will to understand our universe.
Ned: Understanding is overrated. Just do as the Sky Finger commands, and enjoy the calming numbness of true faith.
Stephen Hawking: Never! As an independent thinking being, I choose to exercise my free will and ponder the nature of the Sky Finger!

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Ponder the Nature of the Sky Finger
Time: 8h
Location: PolyVac
Task: Make Ned Enjoy the Calming Numbness of Faith
Time: 8h
Location: Flanders House

What’s the Matter? Pt. 5

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: Logic demands that we consider an alternate hypothesis. Perhaps we’re all actually living in a simulation… a virtual world manipulated by the Sky Finger.
Professor Frink: Like a video game?
Stephen Hawking: No, nothing like that.
Marge: Professor Hawking, while you’re gassing on, the robots are continuing their attack! Luckily it’s mostly stab wounds so far. But still, the sheer quantity of stabbing is hard on people. Particularly the children.
Stephen Hawking: Great, now I lost my train of thought. Homer, block as many knife thrusts as you can absorb while I consider whether I’m really just a simulation.

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Wonder if He’s a Simulation
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac
Task: Make Homer Relax in the Brown House
Time: 2h
Location: Brown House
Task: Make Alternate Homers Absorb Knife Thrusts [x4]
Task: Make Evil Homer Scheme
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac

What’s the Matter? Pt. 6

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: I’ve come to a conclusion: I am NOT a simulation. For truly, any being capable of contemplating such a question is by definition sentient.
Rev. Lovejoy: That’s super.
Stephen Hawking: I may never understand the Sky Finger. But that doesn’t diminish my personal dignity.

Task: Force Hawking to Drive His Wheel Chair Up and Down Stairs
Time: 8h
Location: Brown House

What’s the Matter? Pt. 7

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: I’ve come to a new conclusion: the Sky Finger is a Sky Jerk!
Ned: Blasphemy! Thou’st mayn’t taketh the Finger’s name in vain!
Stephen Hawking: The Finger giveth and I giveth the finger.
Ned: Clever. But still blas-diddly-asphemous!
Stephen Hawking: I’m tired of thinking so hard. And I’m tired of rolling up and down stairs! Haven’t you people ever heard of a ramp? It was invented thousands of years ago! What kind of society has black hole generators, but no ramps?!

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Fight for His Rights
Time: 8h

Quimby: By the power vested in me by the unelected superdelegates, I hereby decree that all buildings are now required to have ramps.
Stephen Hawking: Thank you.
Quimby: Let us bow our heads and pray to Sky Finger that such ramps might miraculously be built.
Stephen Hawking: Oh, for Finger’s sake! Just forget it, I’ll use the stairs.

What’s the Matter? Pt. 8

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: Perhaps I’ve been viewing this through the wrong lens…
Bart: Like that time I put on Milhouse’s glasses and caught lice.
Stephen Hawking: If the Sky Finger is an intelligent, albeit non-divine being, physics may not be the best approach to understanding it.
Stephen Hawking: Instead, I need to employ that lowest of pseudo-sciences… psychology.
Marvin Monroe: I take offense! Psychology is the most rigorous of the self-help infomercial sciences.
Stephen Hawking: Sky Finger, it’s time you and I had a serious discussion.

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Rocket Around Town
Time: 8h

Stephen Hawking: Observation: this rocket chair makes ramps obsolete. And it’s, like, totally fun!

What’s the Matter? Pt. 9

Stephen Hawking starts

Stephen Hawking: I get it now! The Sky Finger is merely a cosmic child! A powerful being with infinite time to waste!
Stephen Hawking: To keep the Sky Finger happy, we just need to offer it things to play with!
Reverend Lovejoy: Just as the ancients offered up blood sacrifices unto the Almighty!
Stephen Hawking: Yes. Except instead of a freshly slaughtered goat, we’ll offer it digital shrubbery, brightly colored dumpsters, and other such treasures.
Ned: So science and religion are in agree-diddly-eement?
Stephen Hawking: It’s not an agreement! More of a, uh, covenant.
Ned: No fair, that’s our word!
Marge: This is all well and good, but what about the army of bloodthirsty robots invading from another dimension?
Stephen Hawking: I heard you the first time, Marge.
Stephen Hawking: We’ll let the Sky Finger play with the PolyVac. That’ll keep its juvenile mind busy so I can think without him tapping me all the time.

Task: Make Stephen Hawking Think Without Getting Tapped by the Sky Finger
Time: 8h
Location: PolyVac
Task: Make Evil Homer Scheme
Time: 4h
Location: PolyVac

System Message: This story will continue in the second act. For now, keep playing with the PolyVac; get more cool “treasures”!


On August 22nd, after a Server Update, EA gifts us some donuts for the SciFi Campaign!

    • Future bucks are needed to craft stuff after their “demo” ammount is over. After like 3-4-5 demos etc. items can be only crafted with FB.
      Rebate means you pay full price and get the rebate donuts back
