    It's 1000 years in the future. The five distinct nuclear wars between the resurrected Ming dynasty and Texmerica have ravaged the planet, leaving the human race a paltry sum of It's former number. A scholar who retains the skills of the ancient English language and basic web browser etiquette stumbles upon something highly unusual- The archived sum total documentation of Chris's life (literally every single piece of it regardless of origin).

    Upon discovering a historical bounty the scholar scuttles back to his city-state to present his findings to the most prestigious center of learning in the new world. Two hundred men and women who consist of historians, intellectuals, technologists and creatives from all corners of the planet are attending his lectures, hoping to gleam information and wisdom from the past. Surely a man as documented as this must have been important? Why was this man so well known? Who was he? Why was he?


    How would Chris' life be presented? What fables or parables be drawn? How would somebody extremely removed from our time period consider the life of Chris? Would Chris' life be considered history or fiction?

    Best case scenario: Chris' story is used as a cautionary tale about the dangers of ego, greed, gullibility, and most of all, not raising your children properly.

    Absolute worst case scenario: People think he is an actual god and begin worshiping them.

    I've read about how scholars in the 1800s rediscovered Mesopotamian civilization
    imagine if CWC's house is the future library of Ashurbanipal and future scholars glean knowledge of the 21st century from it

    LOL, imagine if a legend like the Krampus developed around Chris
    if you're not well behaved on Christian Love Day, Feb 24th, the CWC Monster will come and whip you or even drag you off!

    They would believe Chris to be the king and martyr of the Weens.

    I've actually read some sci-fi tales where stuff like that happens.

    Mankind recovers from the apocalypse, discovers 20th Century Media and it ushers in a gold rush of sorts to go through the ruins of the nuclear waste and restore old media using future technology to sell it off to the highest bidder to be monetized....
