Sniglet Of The DayTEMPLOSION (temp sploZHen) n. A violent and explosive release of pent up temporal energies that cause the complete and total destruction and disintegration of all living matter that is caught in the path of its shock wave.

Since it is H. G. Wells birthday we give you a sniglet that comes right out of his great work, The Time Machine. In it there is a scene that was translated to the movie perfectly and showed the full force of what a templosion can really do. In the film and described in the book we see Alexander Hartdegen rig his time machine to overload. Once critical mass had been reached with no place for the energy to go it explodes, sending out along its path a shock wave of temporal energy that instantly ages any living thing in its path to dust.

I bet there have been many times in your life that you had wished a templosion would come along and just get rid of all the problems for you. The only problem with a templosion though is that if there is nothing there to guide or channel it your just going to be a victim of your own folly. So if you ever get your own time machine you best make sure that you keep it running smoothly and not let it overload, unless that is if you are wanting to get rid of a bunch of Morlocks.

We all have our time machines, don’t we. Those that take us back are memories… And those that carry us forward, are dreams
