Origin[edit | edit source]

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007) was an American writer. His works, such as Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse-Five, and Breakfast of Champions, blend satire, gallows humor, and science fiction. As a citizen, he was a lifelong supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union and a pacifist intellectual, who often was critical of the society that he lived in. He was known for his humanist beliefs and was honorary president of the American Humanist Association.

Effect[edit | edit source]

This helmet was used by Vonnegut while he was in Dresden, Germany as a prisoner of war. When worn, the user will begin to spontaneously travel through time and space to a random moment in their life, either their past or future. The helmet will always remain where the user first left.
