time travel Answered

I heard on the radio today that TIME TRAVEL was possible. Itll only set you back 10 trillon $. You can only go forward in time but then you can go back if they make one that can go back in time in the future. (like mysterio) ooooooo-weeeeee-oooooooo edit:better grammer and puncuation and cool sound effect.

I've never been big on time travel. I figure most people would spend so much time going back and trying to change things that they'd make themselves miserable and end up with a life that didn't make any sense. Teleportation, though... that's what I want!

but you could do teleportation with time travel. jump in the future about, 2 seconds and your there!

It is possible, but the amount of power need is equivilent to the total of all US power use for a year. A.K.A. a million- kagillion watts

You'll need a Delorian and 1.7 gigawatts.

And plutonium! And a flux capacitor! Ah, hahaha

well I dont know about actual time travaling but pauseing time might be possoble if  you moved fast enough with a little help you could pause time relitive to yourself. And if you moved even faster you might either go forwards or backwords in time.

If you give me only $10,000, I will build a machine that will let you travel forward in time.

Well, it is impossible because there is no forces strong enough or big enough to go through time and space. And even if you could have something that big. Time and space are not real matter or atoms so you cannot break them.

It doesn't look that way my friend. Not understanding the basic function of sleep/failing at comprehending jokes or witty remarks shows a distinct lack of time travel knowledge.

im not sure if spaceblaser57 or chooseausername are in the shed

Of course it's possible ! I travel forward in time every night .... The strong force you're talking about is called sleep, and the device I proposed to build is a bed. A $10,000 bed actually ...

If you could come back from the future, this would mean you could travel backward in the time.
My $10,000 device only works to travel forward in time.

Are you interested ?? I accept checks, cash, gold, silver, platinium and Euros coins. =o)

i got a way to time travel! you go into a big tube, they lock you in for an hour and they advertise it as "TRAVEL FORWARD ONE HOUR!)

I can see into my memorable past, does that count?

I dunno about you, but I'm already traveling forward in time at just the right pace.

I've had the "theory" for quite a few years now concerning "Grays" aliens and time travel... My thinking is this... Why would aliens travel thousands of light-years, on a generational spaceship (since it would take that long to get here), just to make random appearances at points in human history? Would we do that if exploring another race/world? I don't think so. My thinking is that the Grays are humans from the future. That would explain why they look so much like us. (IE: Eyes, ears, nose, mouth in the same positions. Bilateral vision. Two legs, two arms. Etc.) That they've figured out how to travel through time. Of course, since the earth would be far from our current location in the cosmos, they would also have to travel through space to get here; Hence the "flying saucers." If we screwed up the past they would have a reason to visit us to try to correct/prevent those problems. That could be the very reason nuclear war didn't occur in the 60's. Perhaps they show up at just the right time to stop an error or prevent a history changing event. To me, it makes more sense than alien space travelers buzzing and probing humans... Enough rambling... I know... I sound (read?) like I'm nuts... Well... I am! :)

I've noticed that since your avatar change.. : - )

In my humble nutty opinion, I don't think time travel is possible. The idea of our great great great grandchildren coming back from the future correcting our mistakes. Then what will happen to their present if the past changed, ok maybe an alternate reality.. But it seriously seems messy .. Not too mention they then have to deal with endless hordes of their great great great grandchildren (from different timeline) coming back as well..and their children's children, and so on..
There's also the possibility that someone in the ultra distant future thinks that time traveling is a very bad idea after the mess they've seen..go back to the very distant future to prevent any attempt in creating a time machine..

As for the UFOs, I stick to my belief that they are just drunk alien college kids who got lost..

What if you becam your own father/mother!? would that be possible? EEEWWWWWWW!

It IS possible now LOL Many many years ago when I was twenty three, I got married to a widow who was pretty as could be. This widow had a grown-up daughter Who had hair of red. My father fell in love with her, And soon the two were wed. This made my dad my son-in-law And changed my very life. My daughter was my mother, For she was my father's wife. To complicate the matters worse, Although it brought me joy, I soon became the father Of a bouncing baby boy. My little baby then became A brother-in-law to dad. And so became my uncle, Though it made me very sad. For if he was my uncle, Then that also made him brother To the widow's grown-up daughter Who, of course, was my step-mother. Father's wife then had a son, Who kept them on the run. And he became my grandson, For he was my daughter's son. My wife is now my mother's mother And it makes me blue. Because, although she is my wife, She's my grandmother, too. If my wife is my grandmother, Then I am her grandchild. And every time I think of it, It simply drives me wild. For now I have become The strangest case you ever saw. As the husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa!

I'm pretty much lost from here onwards:

My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue.
Because, although she is my wife,
She's my grandmother, too.

Ergh..my brain hurts..

go through it slowing writing it down graphically, the relationship as it grows, it does make sense, but you are right, if you think on it too long it makes your senses hurt LOL

Weird thing is, our class just drew a pedigree for this for extra credit!

Yes, more through law than blood, but it definately works.

Oh definately. Such an arrangement is impossible as a bloodline :-) (probably quite immoral and dangerous genetically anyways)

Someone should tell the ancient (and not-so-ancient) Royal blood lines of Egypt, England, and variose other monarchies. Talk about ewww! Fathers marrying daughters, sisters, cousins...

Yea... I know all the paradox arguments, but we really don't know what the effect it would have in reality. Who knows. If they find technology that would allow time travel and long distance space travel, they may also have computers/software that can determine all possible butterfly effects. That would again explain why they only show up when and where they would make the least impact to the general population.

that still doesn't explain the anal probings though...

Zoo hypothesis according to wikipedia:

According to this hypothesis, aliens would generally avoid making their presence known to humanity, or avoid exerting an influence on human development, somewhat akin to zookeepers observing animals in a zoo.

That's where anal probing comes in, the zookeepers occasionally need to know what the monkeys had for dinner..

...and how well they are digesting it all....

Boy I hope that's not what we look like in the future, say you've got me thinking...

BE SUPERMAN!!!!!! Fly around the earth really, REALLY fast.

I don't need 10 trillion dollars, I just need a TARDIS.

I already have a time machine to transport into the future. It's called a Bed. Just about everytime I use it, I find myself transported to tomorrow. Now if I could only find the reverse switch...

It's called a Bed

Noooooooooo ! I'm ruined !! You've revealed my industrial secret !!!!

Dude, give up on this time travel in your sleep thing. It's Bogus! Time travel is imposible
