It's the Florida Marlins, subby, we gotta go back in time to watch the movie before you submit

Hoverboard or fark you.

I can live without flying cars, because people are idiots on the road already without adding flying to the mix. But no hoverboards by 2015 means the future has failed.

He destroyed that future when he didn't crash the truck.

And on top of it, he made Needles into a famous bass player who doesn't even plug his bass in!

Still no hoverboard!

It's the future, we could sink high performance transmitters inside the bass guitar. And still mix it out at the sound board.

If any promotions people for the Marlins are reading, they absolutely need to be the Miami Gators for a game against the Cubs next year. It's a no brainer.

Those shoes are to die for.

I want the damned self-drying jacket, and the hover conversion. If I could perform the travel portions of my job by moving as the crow flies, I'd save a lot of time.

It wouldn't surprise me, they've had 30 years to figure out how to make them.

I'd be fine with flying cars as long as there's some sort of virtual intelligence controlling them. That will be the real next big leap (I hope). I don't mean an Artificial Intelligence with emotions and all that nonsense. Just some form of computer program that can handle something like getting millions of cars (flying or regular old wheeled type) from A to B automatically without drivers. I would add that it would also be awesome to have some of voice controlled human interface that one could speak to like they would another human. I know things like Siri and Google voice actions are a stab in that direction, but you still need to choose from a short list of commands, and the apps don't actually know understand what you're saying. A VI that you could just talk to like a person and get the appropriate actions and responses would be awesome.

Speaking of which, anybody wanna do a side-by-side comparison of Flea now vs. Flea of 1988 made to look like how he might look in 2015?

/AND I STILL WANT A FLYING CAR DAMNIT!

I would think everything in that movie is do-able EXCEPT for flying cars.

Yes, they can MAKE flying cars, but when the hover-conversation fails, or mid air collision happens, everyone comes falling down to Earth.

THATS why they'll never happen.

What I want to know is what could the conversation have been that the "Scenery Channel Repairman" would end up calling Marty a chicken in the first place?
Seriously, how could the conversation had gone that would lead to a repairman calling the homeowner a chicken?

they haven't figured out how to make hoverboards with enough POWAH yet

And though he hasn't aged as badly in this timeline, he caught teh Parkinsons. The ButterMcFly Effect is a fickle biatch

YOUR JACKET IS NOW DRY!

I would be a lot more self-confident if my clothes could talk and reassure me that they're okay.

He came to "fix the cable" and Marty was too shy ?

Damn, you what the most realistic prediction on that page might be? Bottom left, "Pitcher suspended for bionic arm use"

"bionic arm" is a type of PED.

The most unbelievable item is: Tokyo stocks up.
