That's so weird... It's implausible though that, even if he were from the future (and that's a huge if, I'm going out on a limb here people, humor me), he would recall the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden or a cure for AIDS on the top of his head. Practical time travel in 200 years though... it boggles the mind.
Hey, I'm from the future! :-P
Weekly World News, folks, nothing to see here.
They're the people who brought us Batboy!
I know someone who used to subscribe to WWN for laughs while we were in the Navy (Baseera).
...would be cool if he really was a time traveler.
I was going to reply with the same thing but you have have read the SA thread on the same thing as well.
hmm from what ive read in physics books. time travel to the past is only possible after you make the the time machine... oops messed that one up. You can only travel back in time to the date that you made the itme machine. you cant go farther back. This is of curse in a universe where nothing can exceed the speed of light. No not the 17mps but the 10x9to the 8th or whatever it is.
Depends which theory you accept; there are many. Theory of infinite universes, etc..
hehe time travelers suck
and it's impossible to go from $800 to $350mil in such a short time. By hte time he even traded 10mil worth he would be driving the market himself.
It was the light cone theory. Where you can never escape your light cone unless you can go faster than light. This also explained parallel alternate universes.
Going forward in time is quite possible. All you have to do is go very fast, near the speed of light.
Going backwards is impossible, many scientist agree on that.
Bah! people always say stuff is impossible until it happens. I think nothing is totally fixed, someone/something will eventually find away around everything.
By traveling near the speed of light you only slow your own perception of time. Outside observers will still perceive you at normal time.
Your gonna have to come up with a more valid reason. Many scientist belive going back in time is possible. Id have to agree with draco. Anything is possible with enough energy and the right technology.
The Vulcan Science Directorate has determined that time travel is impossible.
I was thinking of that .
Yes. If you go at near light speed. You check your watch. It says you´ve been going for 10 minutes. During those 10 minutes I would have aged 10 minutes, right?
For all other people a longer period of time would have passed.
Thus, I have traveled in time, forward.
Gah! an Enterprise quote demonstrating my point?!
.... I retract my statement
