Synopsis: After a conversation about time travel hypotheticals, Mr. Corrigan steps out of a gentlemen’s club and into the past; specifically 1865, the night of President Lincoln’s assassination. After trying and failing to warn people about John Wilkes Booth’s plan, he is believed by one man, a Mr. Wellington. After explaining the plot to murder Lincoln, Corrigan realizes that he’s been drugged. After waking up, he notices a handkerchief with the initials “JWB” stitched into it. Realizing he couldn’t change the past, he finds himself banging on the door of the gentlemen’s club again.

He goes inside and finds a new person sitting at the poker table, the great grandson of the only other person to believe Corrigan in the past. Corrigan reaches into his pocket and finds he still has the initialed handkerchief…


Dean DeFalco

Creator of Websites, editor of content, wearer of vests. This man is said to be "The Jack of All Trades".  Dean has his hands in most parts of the website one way or another. The original incarnation of Geekade, "G33k Life", was Dean's brainchild. While Dean can be found on a number of shows like when he was the former co-host of the Stone Age Gamer Podcast or the current host Vest and Friends or talking about video games on YouTube and Twitch, he is the guy behind the scenes making sure that the site does everything it's supposed to every one else can do their job. There's not a problem he can't solve.....or at least punch and scream at until it doesn't exist anymore.
