cman: 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

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.

The trouble with time travel isn't when you land but where you land. Considering the constant, rapid speed that the Earth, Sun, and galaxy moves through space, jumping even a second forward or back will probably place you deep within the Earth or somewhere in outer space.

Just a thought...

Give me a break - it took me a while to get that old computer to a point where I could get a Fark account.

Lets face it, the timeline I came from pretty much sucked, and though everything seemed to be going just as it happened, it didn't stop me from trying to make the one I live in now a better place. So this time around I made sure Bush got a second term. Though it didn't stop the underlying current of civil discontent, it did placate certain groups enough that it seems the disaster was averted. Its kind of a strange feeling that similar things are happening, but at different times than I remember, and certainly a different outcome thanks to the Lorenz Effect.

Its actually kind of refreshing having a few surprises.

Approves...while pocketing nifty gadgets.

fun fact! Robin Williams was cast for that part but had to cancel at the last minute. He has said it was one of his biggest regrets

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.

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

I am from the future...damned weeping angels.

Good news, hand guns no longer a problem in the future
Bad news, death cubes are the new threat.

I'm a time traveler.

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