T-Rex: Good, nobody's around. Now I can do something REALLY embarrassing!
[[Black bar over T-Rex's eyes]]
T-Rex: It occurs to me: every time I do something private, I'm REALLY just betting that technology to look into the arbitrary past won't ever be developed. Because if it is ever invented, game over, man, game over! People will be able to look at any moment in history!
T-Rex: Folks will know all of my embarrassing little SECRETS.
Utahraptor: Actually, T-Rex, there's been a few stories written on that theme: Asimov and Clarke both wrote one!
Utahraptor: The technology means the end of all privacy, but also the end of most violent crime...
T-Rex: Okay YEAH I read them! All I'm saying is it just takes this tech to be developed ONCE, at any point in the future, and my privacy is pooched. Friggin' dudes watching me poop 20,000 years in the future.

Future Dude 2: Yeah, it's weird!
Future Dude 3: Let's just do it though
