Nah, that's not it. They've just read all the posts you've made on the
internet (and will make in the future), and decided they just don't
want to deal with a barbaric crotchedy great-nth-grandmonster. I know,
that's what my decendants told me... ;)

Another possible explaination is that you lived into the future, and
your future self nixed the whole plan cause you don't want to have to
deal with yourself... ;) If I were you I'd not complain. Imagine having
to deal with your older self your whole life, always being treated
condescendingly, him knowing all the answers and having all the
cultural referents. Jerk would make it insufferable for you.

I'd hate to be my own little brother...
