Timeshift is a pretty cool game. This game is about scientists from the future whom were making a 2 suits that could travel back in time. So, the suit is a time machine. The 2 suits are called Alpha and Beta. The director of this project is known as Dr. Aiden Krone. Dr. Krone was planting a bomb inside the building that the scientists were working at.

TEMPLOSION (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.

ohnosecond – that very short moment in time during which you realize that you have pressed the wrong key and deleted hours, days, or weeks of work.
So, you did it. You are sitting there stupefied, not believing it, but there it is. More like, there it isn’t. Not any more. All that wonderful data you had gathered, those screenshots, those graphics, that presentation that was going to make you a star in your field, no matter what it might be. It’s gone. You have just experienced an ohnosecond, but it takes less than a second for it to happen. You will be sitting at your desk, blubbering the chant “ohno!ohno!ohno!” for hours until you can up with a plan to bring it all back. You are not sure why the ohnosecond occurred, or how it happened. You wonder of H.G. Wells had thought of a Time Machine that could go back, say… about five minutes, so you can stop yourself from making the same stupid mistake again. It’s so not fair, and no IT guy will be able to bring you back to where you lost what you had been working on. Ohnoseconds are dreaded,and hopefully avoidable,but just be very careful where that mouse might misclick. Make sure you are ready to hit that delete or enter key. The job you save may be your own.
