More text message frivolity with Stense:
Richard (08:03 BST): HOLY SHIT!! IT WORKED!
Stense (08:53 BST): What did?
Richard (08:58 BST): Don't know what you're talking about, mate. But MAJOR NEWS: I've finished building my time machine. Going on test run back to 8am today. Will keep you posted.
(I don't think Stense got it.)
Richard (12:42 BST): Time travel sucks. Am trapped inside Einsteinian time-paradox loop. Just queued behind five other mes in M&S butty dept! I was literally beside myself!
Still no reply. Evidently, Stense is no sci-fi aficionado.
