Good, arguing stopped. Was going to be cross if it continued much longer.
To help spur on discussion, let me prod you all with the stick of intrigue.

Figures, her main strength here is her intelligence, but the possibility of her outright messing up always seems to loom over her battles. It's kind of Ironic.
I appreciate that you successfully understood and used irony, but consider what Monteray (Kainsword's arbitrary name) or Battus (my Cluster-centric "-us" ending theme) said during transwarp. The bomb has no power.
Blossom's laser is not nearly enough to set it off nor destroy it. She doesn't know that, but she is not going to investigate in that direction for fear that her laser IS strong enough. Detonating the bomb is singularly contrary to what she wants: for it to not detonate at all. We know she is going to fail, but how?
And don't forget, Sam and Buttercup still are fighting above them.
Additionally, hurting Gir would make circumstances much worse for her in a fight with Bell. The threat
of damaging Gir is more powerful for Blossom's intention than actually
How interesting is that?

As for the page, there's not much I have left to say that hasn't been said by everyone else already. Maybe that's why the discussions for these don't go on for very long, people run out of things to talk about. I definitely like the theory of GT being the original universe and PPGD becoming the altered one. Though, the multiverse theory doesn't exactly require giant time bombs to split universes. Something as simple as choosing flip-flops or sandals could spark two different universes.
Here's something to discuss: Dr. X's intentions. My memory is a bit foggy, but I believe I remember him stating that not even he knows what the aftermath of the explosion will be. We can speculate what the bomb's effect is all day long, but we won't know it until more pages come out. But why would Dr. X want to blow up a bomb if he's unsure of the outcome? Is he a nihilist and just wants to destroy everything? I don't really see that, he strikes me more as the typical world domination villain (even saying that was his intention to Mojo, though he could have been lying). Maybe he's just curious what will happen, like me when I choose to use metronome on pokemon over a much better move.
First: your IPs are unique, but you claim to be a previous user in context. Interesting. Also you too are a victim of Something Awful's unique monster mythology, Slendy
Second: Quantum deviation allows for GT's Bad Future PpGD to exist, so I simply say that the timelines diverted a lo-o-o-o-o-o-ong time ago. If anyone suggests that they are related, the rest of you better get to that person first and correct their ignorance, or I WILL SLAUGHTER THEM IN THEIR SLEEP.
Third: Dr. X does not know the outcome because of his bomb operates in its description with at least a few words that Gir "accidentally" spilled a page back. My pseudoscience (a necessary evil for decent science fiction) is rather elegant in that regard, I think. And he does want to take over the world... but in an unusually specific way.
In conclusion, a few of the pieces related to one another: Combine Gir's spill of, what, two adjectives? with Otto's presence, reaction, and description to Professor Utonium. Your biggest hint: Dr. X can never, ever, EVER let his bomb design to be found in any regard whatsoever.
The final hint? Think about the Illustrious Erwin Schrödinger and his Cat.
