Which was in fact my point ... This is just a goof, really, but it's a stfnal idea that I've played with many time and never come up with a good storyline for ... I've often had the idea of, well, if you can have multiple-sheaf futures, why not multiple- sheaf pasts? And then what if Alden, the Reasonably Friendly Ghost, actually has lived multiple versions of his life and died at several different points along the timeline ... ? It would certainly clear up (by making irrelevant) many of the inconsistencies in the storyline(s). So he died of a stroke, and he died playing with his chemistry set, and he died in the coldhouse prank ... Just a goof, as I said. But I'm dead serious about the coldhouse == the barn. --Blattid --
