8Draw: last week i was doing some research for an illustration project for a client and I needed some reference on 1920s offices. Found this:

Left side, 2nd set of desks. Time traveling guidos. I fear we've underestimated these creatures.


The girl in front of them is facepalming because of you.

Stompn_Tom: I was the last one left after the nuclear holocaust, eh. The whole world had been destroyed, like U.S. blew up Russia and Russia blew up U.S. Fortunately, I had been offworld at the time. There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked. So's I spent most of my time looking for beer.


Fleshy-headed mutant, are you friendly?

Let's say you've gone back in time Link (new window)


There was a Twilight Zone episode where an entrepreneur went back in time (makes a deal with the devil plot) to 1910 in order to get in on the big discoveries before they were invented. He goes to a machine shop to get them to build automobile starters at a time when cars were started by hand crank. The machine shop wants detailed drafted plans for this wonder invention,not a description. He has no idea and never even thought of it. So he's basically out of luck because he's a nobody without any ability to implement the future technology he was familiar with. Typical TZ bad ending.

He's a historian, there to impregnate his own great grandmother to perfect his genetics. He most likely has done this many times, possesses super sensory perception, and may be infected with rabies. His name is Green Taylor Sims. And he is as immortal as he is immoral.

And then he traveled back in time to 1924 and gave a pair of glacier glasses to Mallory and Irvine to climb Mt. Everest with. But since it was such a radical idea he had to kill them and they were never seen again. Except that they did find the one body but I don't think they found the glacier glasses.

As I recall, the guy who has to go back and fix things, is getting tired.

Yup, I saw that the other day and thought the exact same way.

Not that it wouldn't be awesome, but, I've recently come to terms that, maybe, time traveling to the past would not be healthy.

Think about it, you're essentially sending a piece of yet-to-be-conceived matter into the past. Wouldn't this be extremely hazardous to the universe itself, and cause all sorts of ripples?.

The 4th dimension does not take things as seriously as the first three. Its like "Hey man, go ahead and break stuff, this isn't my stuff anyway. Width can suck my balls."

Yes, but, essentially the Universe really doesn't like a vacuum. So, yeah, you made it through time, but now instead of a chrono-naut, you're just a german farmer of 1927, who had this weird dream and probably was the result of that time you drank all that cheap booze with your brother.

In 1968, I time-traveled to 2010, and saw that Lady Gaga was the biggest-selling artist of the time. I reported back to my superiors that we are pretty well farked in the future.

Bingo. Real time travelers know you can only go to the future. Past time travelers are totally fake. The ONLY plausible explanation is that this guy is from 1941, came to the future and then went back to 1941 in his new fashioned clothes. HE submitted this link while he was here.

I am actually typing from the future. It's safer that way (no paradox-induced insanity, no temporal ripples), and cheaper, too.

Oh yeah, this week's lucky numbers are 21, 5, 34, 42, and 58.

If it worked like that you would be random molecules scattered around a very large area in the form of all the precursors to the food your parents would eventually consume to create you. So no, its not like that. And the universe is OK with the vacuum, just not so early in the morning man, its trying to sleep fer chrisakes.

I don't get it, what is out of place in the photo? Everyone seems focused on someone whose shadows look odd... where did the "time traveler" notion come from? He looks normal otherwise.

And remember, the planet is not in the same place as it was in x number of years ago. Anyone simply traveling back in time would mostly likely end up in a pretty hard vacuum, unconscious and dying within seconds. Hell, the planet isn't in the same spot now as it was 10 seconds ago... How fast does Earth travel through actual space? Any jump merely through time is likely to have catastrophic results for the traveler...
