I began to wonder. How many different alternate futures are there in the cartoon network universe? Also before anyone nitpicks, since fusion fall I've been counting all the old cartoon network shows as a part of the same universe (like PPGD and GTFB do). I also count fusion fall as an alternate future, I seem to remember there's the PPG future where the girls ceased to exist and him takes over, there's several in the B&M timelines (though I don't recall the exact number). So does anyone know how many there are? So far including Fusion fall I count at least 3 alternate futures (I also count PPGD and GTFB on a technicality, even though it's not really canon of the CN universe).
And if someone has already asked this here I apologize, but I can't find a topic on it here.

But yeah, alternate futures are limitless.
Especially in DC Comics, oh god.

strider0075 wrote:Also BeeAre, yes I may have asked a vague and maybe badly worded question, making it seem like I am ignorant of certain subjects. However, I AM quite aware of Dune, the reference to spice hoards and the friggin sandworms! I GET that's what they were referencing! It's just that calling Mandy a cinnamon tycoon worm was funnier than stating what it was referencing since most here KNOW what it was referencing and all I really had to do was make a description of Mandy's character in the short to get the joke across.

I had to fight to use the word Accede, as in to accede to someone's demands- in my house because NO-ONE even heard of it.
I actually heard of it in Civilization 4 and used it ever since. Let no-one tell you games don't teach you shit. I've learned more words in games than I did in school- that's the Gospel Truth.

Also, why wiki? wiki is a notoriously unreliable reference point. why not dunenovels.com or goodreads.com. Hell anywhere but friggin' Wikipedia.?
maybe not and I do apologize for running on a tad too long with that rant, but I hate having to repeat myself. So I tried to make myself as clear as possible. Honestly I wouldn't have an issue except for how he "sounded", he came off like a pompous ass who felt the need to show his superiority. I mean, was there really a need for him to point out the dune reference or to point out the flaws in my speech?
