sorry I'm late

A few questions:
1.Why is Ben Affleck wearing a Michigan shirt?
2.Were these sunglasses with side shields around back then?
3.Does this guy seem unusually tall?
4.Is that camera from that era?
5. What bridge did you say? Is it still around?

Maybe common knowledge, but for those of you that love 12 Monkeys, you absolutely must see the short french film on which it was based: La Jetee (IMDB new window).

It's black and white and told only with still photographs. One of my favorite movies ever.

This is obviously not a real time traveler. He would have been at the meetings and all of us wear thick beards. They have always existed and always will exist. You'll never see a clean shaved time traveler.

Dire:
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...


YES! FINALLY!

FrancoFile: OK, link is totally fbxrd. As in DNS doesn't work any more. What up?


the photo has been posted in the thread. It's finally proof that we can go forward in time, submit links to Fark, and then go back to our original time with new clothes.

All cars are time machines, it just matters what you run into and how hard you hit it.

What up?

Upthread, B&W, temporally and geographically synchronized. With the shades.

MAYBE...Something catastrophic happend on that day in HIS timeline and he went back and saved us all and now its just a bridge opening in OUR time line. Thus altering the the history around us and we wouldn't even know it. Haven't you seen Back to the Future II?

Watson 749 - CygnusDarius: 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."

And, for those that want to, here's an interview with Carl Sagan (new window), he starts up with global climate change, but he also talks about time travel.

/I wonder what kind of questions Glenn Beck would ask him?

EXACTLY. Or at least no ghosts in the commonly thought-of sense of them being "time echoes," or spirits of deceased persons that can pass through solid matter, float unaffected by gravity, etc. You can't just pick and choose which laws of physics a spirit is beholden to for the sake of it feeling good or it being good drama.

That and the fact that ghosts are drawn to the nearest mass of dark matter for it's inherent creepiness then they fly around in it going "Wooooo" and generally behaving spooky. In fact, dark matter is made of ghosts.

I don't think anyone that believes in ghosts relies on a scientific explanation of their existence, or at least one that can be explained in our understanding of science. That's why they call it supernatural. These are the same people that believe in magic and fortune telling.

Because you're not going to have the shiat blown out of you from explosions in Gold Bridge B.C? That's like asking "why don't time travelers ever go back to 9/11/2001 at the top of WTC1?

I really wish people who don't know anything about time travel would keep their comments to themselves.

Time traveling Nazi.

And anyway, people and objects don't travel through time, only moments do. And the dimension of time itself doesn't move, it's just a "stationary" axis of reference. Moments and series of moments move along it. And it intersects with space at one point on its axis, and that is the present.

Although I don't believe in ghosts or spirits in any traditional sense, I do not discount the possibility that there could be non-corporeal sentient and/or semi-sentient entities that possess cohesion and form according to certain undiscovered principles of nature, but that are also somewhat beholden to physical laws (although from our perspective, less beholden to them than might seem conceivable or logical given our limited knowledge of the nature of the universe) and can interact with and be affected by certain physical objects and energies. Hell there could be non-sentient analogues for bacteria and viruses (or plants? fungi? slime molds? portuguese man o' war?) that exist entirely in "that realm." And by analogues I don't mean mirror images, I mean relative equivalents.
