John Titor #5?

WTF? That guy should be #1. It is amazing how many people bought his idiotic bullshiat.

Asshole claimed he went back in time to get parts for an IBM360, a computer made in the 1960s.

People for some reason bought it

and you doubt him?

I totally believe it. I have never told the whole story, but I had to time travel back to 1983 once to get a new thermal printer for a Timex Sinclair. No one knows, but my actions saved Kraft Easy Cheese from being wiped from the Earth and averted the Cuban-Icelandic Wars of the 2130's entirely.

I'm a time traveler.

The only problem is, I can only do it in one direction, and only in real time.

Deal. Although I should probably pick a sword that's best suited to my physical characteristics.

Of course, the Chronovisor isn't an actual time machine, because that would be silly; it was more like a time window. The device allowed anyone using it to look anywhere into the past, and watch whatever events they desired.

Orson Scott Card approves.

FTFA: "In August of 1901, while visiting the palace of Versailles, both women claim to have slipped over two hundred years into the past to 1792."

They also apparently compressed time.

That's because he goes back and erases mention of his time traveling. These comments will be gone later.

Non-hypothetical evidence is observed every day with our GPS satellites. Hardwired into each one is an intensely precise clock, but every single one of those clocks gains exactly a third of a billionth of a second every day - but only once the satellites are launched. This is because "time travels faster in space than it does down below." Which means, that if we went to a black hole in the center of our solar system, we could slow the travel into the future aboard that ship by half. Adding to the possibilities, if we found a way to travel at 99 percent the speed of light, a single day could be a whole year of time on Earth.

WTF? Time dilation != Time travel

Yeah, he was fun to read. Unlike most crackpots (if that's what he was) he had some definite writing skills. It seems to me that he actually seemed to be test-driving the John Titor character for a novel which never got published...shame, really, because it might have been a good read.
 
2012-08-24 12:56:57 PM
But if there is Romneycare in the future, Subby, that means:

1. Romney won the election
2. He got Obamafail dismantled
3. He got his own plan implemented by Congress, implying that the Senate is no longer in the clutches of Dingy Harry Reid and the Do Nothing Senators
4. We invent time travel and regular trips are possible

I'll cheerfully stand in line for a doc appointment if all that's true.

I thought team Obama praised Romneycare and tinkered their own system after it. That was the party line a year ago, at least. Did I miss the new Democrat talking points memo?

So much this. I find myself often contributing to the debate, however, though usually only when it devolves into the religious bullshiat that is bound to follow
 
2012-08-24 12:59:31 PM
Ooo, you can't say the word Romneycare, nor can you say the individual mandate was proposed by the Heritage Foundation approximately 20 years ago. Can't do that!

But at least one person has made it once before:

I never believed it, but it was a great story. Entertaining, thought provoking... and internally consistent. He had plausible answers for almost everything, and a lot of his science he discussed was true, and/or theoretically possible at least. Even his reason for wanting the old IBM made sense. All in all, it was a great work of fiction and I am glad I got to read/follow along with it.

I am a time traveler from 1968 visiting the future. Please do not send me back. I just found out Richard Nixon would be elected later this year.

Somebody needs to make a really good, and as serious as possible, time travel movie. I'd go see it in a second.

I heard Primer was ok but still haven't seen it. Due to the subject matter, time travel movies seem to always be campy. I wish they'd make an actual 'what-if' time travel movie.

THEY ARE ALL WRONG!!!!!

I INVENTED TIME TRAVEL....


The only problem is I can only travel forward. 1 second at a time.

You guys aren't going to believe this, but I am a time traveler. I'm doing it right now. But I can only go in one direction.

And the best part is I am the only one. No one else can claim to do the same, or can post online saying they can.
