    Ha ha ha.. it's not a Flow chart, it's a kind of Funny graph ;-)

    Doesn't "scratches" has two Cs? "The urchin scrathes his lice-infested head."

    So, it's really not so much FLOWCHART, as it is the story map to an odd, Dickensian-themed Infocom title? (That may make it even cooler!)

    I think it's the bit where Jack the Ripper also gets himself a time machine, from somewhere, and decides that the most fun he can have with it is to go back 50 years...

    (otherwise, mind, it's reasonably sound on the timeline)

    Once you allow for the possibility of time-travel technology, pre-copycatting is almost destined to be all the rage among murderers and ne'er-do-wells.

    Bubonic plague was transmitted by flea bites. Ye have unjustly besmirched the reputation of the humble ratte.

    If only there was some kind of endless library on which to have researched the matter. Ahem :)

    Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
    Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
