Pointless Question #30

Why is it that when you're going into bullet time, there's ALWAYS a slow-mo hummingbird nearby to drill it in your head just how awesomely fast you're going?

Little known fact about hummingbirds: they are actually capable of moving so fast that they're invisible to the naked eye. They're actually around us all the time, completely imperceptible, and it takes a drop into bullet-time to actually see them. They're like rods.

Is it too much to ask for individual photons in slo-mo?

The magic that lets you use bullet time draws its energy from fast animals. Spoiler: the hummingbird dies when you go back to normal speed.

Hummingbirds get tired of moving that fast, so they evolved to be attracted to areas where people are using bullet time!

The reason we don't see them much is because they typically reside in hammerspace and only come out to feed. When you go into bullet time your perception increases allowing you to see into hammerspace and thus view the hummingbirds secret lair.

Hammer space?

I loved the episode of Venture Bros. where Broc comes smashing in through a window (chained to the roof of a flaming car no less) and when it goes slow motion a bunch of doves just come flying in from who knows where.
