The time hasMoreTruth Is An Amusing Concept was the masthead logo used by the satirical website known as The Globe-Guardian. The Globe-Guardian actively published pages monthly from 1998 until approximately 2002, when it became dynamically dormant. The time has come -- on the more-or-less milestone eve of its 16th anniversary of existence (if not activity) -- for the Globe-Guardian to break free of its internet bonds and escape into the world in book form. These pages include FutureNews stories, gathered by intrepid journalists who submitted themselves to Globe-Guardian exclusive (and potentially lethal) Projection Enhanced Expeditionary Kinetic Image News Gathering (PEEKING) technology, to get a look-see at where current events might be going in our not-too-distant (in most cases) futures. Revealing interviews with persons seemingly familiar yet personally unknown to most readers are found in the Obscure Celebrities chapter. The Blimpspotters Brigade, headquartered in the Globe-Guardian central offices, is an international organization that maintains a constant vigil in its ongoing and never-ending effort to establish the true purpose of these menacing airships. The Cyborg Alumni Association welcomes all former members and possible members of the Collective to reap the benefits of their past lives as drones. Impertinent answers to frequently unasked questions are the forte of AnswerMan. An assortment of loosely organized belief systems that dont quite qualify as bona fide religions, yet draw surprisingly faithful followings, are explored in Religism. Chief among these is the Church of the Rotate Your Envelope Stock founded on the ideal of tolerance.
