I would like to know what time period the actio jones seiries takes place in. The appearence of nick sterling means that it has to be some where from the late 70s to2020s. it just depends on how old nick was when he appeared.

I assume by "late 70s" you mean the 1970's.

Hmm, how to begin? Well, basic to your knowledge of the realm I live in, the Action Jones universe, is the fact that it transpires in a different universe than the world you know. Time in the Action Jones universe (AJU) and your own can slow or speed up in relation to one another, so it is hard to relate the time here in my universe to your own. However, the fact that I can communicate with you, though sometimes delayed, sometimes instantaneous, is proof that our times can exist simultaneously and collinearly, if only for an instant at a time. Since most of the physical laws in the AJU are similar to your own, time here is constrained to operate nearly as steadily as yours, making interuniversal travel possible. If it weren't as steady, those who made the journey between would risk being ripped apart in the turbulence and friction at the intersection of the universes or being lost forever in the vast expanse between.

A paradox (the intersection and simultaneous gap), you say? Nay, I say. They intersect much like two basketballs might have contact, at only point at a time. But, if you were to be repelled by the other universe as you tried to journey to it, you would have a very small chance at the greatest of ever making back to either of the two known universes. However, the complicated secrets like this, known to only a few (apparently the Pharoah, Nick Sterling, myself, and perhaps a few others), are exactly that, secrets too complicated and too secret to be strewn about upon the public domains of the world wide web.

Hmm, I seem to have just gone against my own piece of wisdom, or should I now call it foolery?

So, to answer your question, all we know for certain is that the two universes in question are at least current to some varying degree, but they converge frequently.

Actually KG, I hate to disagree with you here, but you're a tad bit off base. You see, the Action Jones Univers, Nick Sterling (which encompasses all of Zurgathon) and the Universe explored in the Betty Boneroo series are all tied together and interwoven. Meaning, whats true in one must be true in them all. Therefore, since the Nick Sterling Universe is the most completely explored of the three, we can extrapilate much information on all there series by examining what is true for Nick Sterling.

So, in that case, we know for certain that Nick Sterling and Action Jones intersect during Project Azerberjan. As for when this was in Nick's life, all we really know is that, it was after he recieved his dirtbike from Chief (the Nick Sterling version) for his 26th birthday in 1995. Also, Nick shows no signs of talking like Zurg, and he also would most likely not be out riding around if he was already in charge of Secret Agencies Inc. (AKA Zurgathon) So, that means this must be taking place before Nick recieved the leadership position in 2000. So...Project Azerberjan took place sometime between 1995 and 2000.

However, the universe these series all take place in is not the one we live in. While it does share similar significant events, it also has places, wars, leaders, organizations that do not exist in our world. So, suffice to say that the univers Nick Sterling, Action Jones, and Betty Boneroo function in is one parallel to our own, with the same dating system and chronology, but different events to fill them.

And finally, estimating that Project Azerberjan takes place in roughly the later part of 1997, we can stem out from there to place the rest of the Action Jones events in their correct place in chronology.

There you go Historian. Your definetely a learned fellow, but the area of chronology etc. happens to be my speciality, I hope you don't mind Wink

The whole history thing is quite fascinating now I must ask, who is Betty Boneroo?

Oh, no, it's worse than I feared, my friends. I'm trapped in a time paradox.

I also am wondering who Betty Booneroo is, the Chief. Care to enlighten us?

Ahh, well, Betty Boneroo is a little known, but nevertheless skilled, secret agent who's fought some rough villians in her day, including sir shamu and...the early version of Pharoah of Flush himself....don't worry, in time all will be revealed....

I'm afraid to admit this old man may not want to find out.
I may come to wish I had never asked.

What a pleasant surprise to hear mention of the little known epic story of Betty Boneroo...

By the way, Betty Boneroo happens to have an account on here now, methinks. She's probably lurking around here somewhere...not go off subject.

Hmmm... Betty Bonaroo

She truely is an enigma, that one.

Probably the only girl Action Jones, Edge, the Chief, or Insanity Tim have ever heard of!

That is...

If they ever even knew she existed...

My question is thus, O venerable Chief and Historian:

Where might we find a bard worthy to tell the tale of Betty Bonaroo?

Do you mean, will the Betty Bonaroo series get placed on the website, or will the Betty Bonaroo film be able to be watched by yourself?

I mean, surely you don't expect bards to be realistic.

Hmm...Betty Boneroo on the website? Now there's an interesting though KG. I could see there being a place for it under Other Videos....though I'd have to ask the creator of the series for her permission....copyrights and all, you understand.
