Although it left it, it knew that it was right, it made it down, because it didn't know what's up.



When David volunteered to be part of a cryogenic experiment he thought he'd be at the forefront of human technology, spearheading research and development.

Unfortunately politics doesn't work that way.

Lucky for him, the science was solid... For ten thousand years.

AN: Don't take this seriously. Seriously don't. I don't.

When you update this I'll be waiting for it

This story has made my day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:twilightsmile:

I look forward to more as this has great potential

All aboard the MOAR train!! CHOO CHOO! MOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!! :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:

Oh politics, we love you! Google+ is great too, and I enjoyed meeting the medic! FIre? Did somebody say fire? Woohoo! We got a party up in here!

meet the medic ref?
and only 10 thousand years?
sheesh, he's still young

...you had my curiousity.
Now you have my...marginally increased curiosity.:raritywink:

This has a strong Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy feel, and I love it.

The name - it's an Idiocracy shoutout, isn't it?


Definitely inspired by those two. Idiocracy for the sarcasm and premise, Hitchhiker's for that brilliant snarky quips on certain choices made by people in general.

Throw in an ancient Vee Double-U and make David look like Woody Allen and you've got yourself a "Sleeper."

Huh. Neat. I look forward to the next chapter.

It's like Futurama, only better, it has ponies!!!

Now let's hope it doesn't go like Futurama, amazing start and length, dies and is passed off to somebody just for them to flop it.

I want to ship David and Twilight now but I don't know why...

I like the part from "meet the medic". Although I feel the laughter feels a bit weak. :rainbowwild:
EDIT: Now that I think about it, you can draw a surprising amount of parallels to TF2 here... For example Australia.

Just by reading the description and name, I can tell you got lots of this from 'Idiocracy'.

“-and the doctor was never heard of again!” the masked doctor laughed, slurping down a cold one. David laughed along with the doctor.
“A ha ha”, chuckled nervously.
The doctor took off his sturdy wire-framed glasses and wiped away some mirthful tears.
“Anyway, that’s how I lost my medical license.”
David whipped his head back.
“What was that?!” he squeaked, bolting upright in his chair.


It's got electrolytes, it's what ponies crave!

Oh mate, that is exactly what Australian Parliment is like, well done.:twilightsmile:

No war for you.

Also, this story is already apparently more popular than Synch, judging by its appearance in the popular stories list, which I don't recall happening to Synch (although I wasn't much paying attention).

5154614 I don't think Synch ever made it to Popular stories, I keep track of these things but I think I should concentrate more on writing stories and making sure everyone (including myself) enjoy the stories than worry whether it gets into the popular stories list or the feature box... although I will admit that it would make me happy if I actually found out.

EDIT: I also have no idea how the feature box algorithms work. It's a little strange like that.

I maintain that the Australian parliament is just an excuse for grown men and women to argue like children on a playground.
Also, I voted for the Palmer United Party.

Mr Johnson?
As in CAVE Johnson?

well this gonna be fun

i wonder what Celestia gonna react about a strange creature coming out of a relic which is a cryo pod that contained a human thats older than she is:trollestia::twilightsmile:

and Twilight?

maybe she gets a friend

Uhhhh....why is the cryopod torturing its occupant? And if he has woken up, why hasn't it expelled its occupant?

So I just recently started reading Life, The Universe, and Everything. Let me tell you, I can really see the similarities in hours and Mr. Adams's styles. I love this and everything it represents.

This story is looking good, you can relax.

TEN THOUSAND YEARS Will give you such a crick in the neck!

“You’re not my doctor”, he commented drily, then he lost all interest in further proceedings.


I label this Idea as original, and await further material. I can see by my records that in ancient times the simple term used was "MOAR" :pinkiehappy:

Chik- chik *points shotgun* moar

Color me interested. This seems like a smash up of Hitchhikers Guide and Stasis, one of my stories. That said, Stasis is eminently more violent :rainbowlaugh:

Keep up the good work :twilightsmile:

Or perhaps they accidentally got frozen while delivering pizza and came out into a wide, sprawling futuristic community. I-period-C-period-Wiener.


Was this some sort of hidden treasure she had found that was a part of a long-long civilisation?

long long.


Yeah, this really reminds me of Adam's writing style, glad someone else picked up on that.

For some reason, there's this thing about the way this is written that I just can't put my finger on.

Whatever it is, it's making the currently slow progression of the plot seem infinitely better than it would actually be in reality.


Oh and thanks. Fixed.

5156168 That... that makes a lot of sense, actually.

Idiocracy AND Hitchhiker style of humor? Count me in! :pinkiehappy:

Does he have a towel?
Please keep writing this! :pinkiehappy:

Does he have a towel?
Please keep writing this! :pinkiehappy:

The second chapter had me scratching my head a bit but the story is a bit funny...

Speaking of which, you made it to the feature box proper.

And to partially answer your question, the top 7 places in the feature box are for new stories that are too popular for the popular stories list, and the bottom 3 are for stories that have gotten to the feature box before but climb back in due to increased/returned readership, usually from a new chapter.
