Time Machine Order: the Time Machine is a set of baskets in the comm center for, I think, each day of the week. Someone can issue an order to do XYZ within the next week, and they'll put a copy in the TM basket for the day when the order is supposed to be done. When that day comes, there will be a reminder that XYZ is supposed to be finished today, so it can be chased up. The TM helps people keep track of these things which might be forgotten otherwise. Fell off: I can think of "fell off the Bridge"... the idea is like we're standardly cruising along on a conveyor belt, but people who fall off it, by whatever misfortune, immediately are in a place where they won't have any more forward motion happening. They're stuck in a dark place, so to speak. Ed
