    I believe mike is not every job in fnaf game, because I don’t think Mike’s dad will fire him, yeah yeah I know he would fire him because he wants him to be safe, NO NO NO NO HE WOULD KNOW THAT THE ANIMATRONIC ARE HARMFUL, AND THE STICKER THINGY IS SISTER LOCATION COULD BE THE ROBOTS NAME.

    (Fan theory my theory) so I don't know when the new game coming out the mall one idk what it's time line is but I think that when they go into the ballpit and save the kids if they do I think there gonna open a new timeline that has the mall open because the missing kids kinds drove the business down so if there were no missing kids then the business would be thriving and they would open the mall this theory seems good it's just how dose it tie in with the fanf help wanted game

    What has this series become? It's somewhat sad in a weird way. It used to just be the mystery of the Bite of 87, who was the killer, are we actually in a coma in FNaF 4? etc. And now here we are with time-travel, humans turning into an infection, and turning into candy. I don't know what to think of this series anymore. Everything I loved about it has disappeared.

      @junkiehead that’s still supporting anti LGBTQ+ charities. That’s like saying “oh I fully support black people but because of my economical opinion let me just impress them real quick” it’s never okay under any circumstance

      He never did? He did many charities. The only reason he donated to Anti-LGBTQ+ was because of his economical opinion. He supports equality and LGBTQ+. Get off Twitter.

    The bootstrap paradox is really a gem in time travel stories, but in all honesty I view it as a way to preserve a period of time to always exist indefinitely. Meaning anything that happens in between the two points of what we would say is the beginning and ends that cause each other must happen. Which preserves a time period. This understanding of time and time travel really puts a lot of things into question including religion, products, and everything else I'm too lazy to think and type out.
