    Somebody has been watching and reading way too much science fiction.

    What's incredulous about esteemed physicists believing in the possibility of time travel? They believe in Evolution, don't they? These guys will swallow anything as long as it's not religion.

    I don't know if they're slobs........ but definitely many of them are snobs who think they know more than the rest of us..... even when its imaginary fiction like the examples presented here.

    Time travel is not fiction for those of us who believe in God, who know that he knows the end from the very beginning and are content that there is nothing which is beyond his control or providence.

    Or maybe the problem is French engineering. I've never seen an American electrical sub station that could be decommissioned by a bagel dropped from the sky.

    We're talking cryogenic temperatures. A crumb across an array can transfer comparatively large amounts of heat. It still may be -270 degrees F and still be dangerously overheated.

    ARTHUR: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin
    or the plumber may seek warmer climes in winter yet these are not
    strangers to our land.
    GUARD #1: Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
    ARTHUR: Not at all, they could be carried.
    GUARD #1: What -- a swallow carrying a coconut?
    ARTHUR: It could grip it by the husk!
    GUARD #1: It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple
    question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a 1 pound
    coconut.
    ARTHUR: Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master
    that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here.
    GUARD #1: Listen, in order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow
    needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?
    ARTHUR: Please!
    GUARD #1: Am I right?
    ARTHUR: I'm not interested!
    GUARD #2: It could be carried by an African swallow!
    GUARD #1: Oh, yeah, an African swallow maybe, but not a European
    swallow, that's my point.
    GUARD #2: Oh, yeah, I agree with that...

    If people can buy into luducous notions that the WTC Towers were a government conspiracy, or that Kennedy was killed by a person on the grassy knoll, then it stands to reason they should buy into the idea that the Hadron Collider was sabotaged by a future event.

    When I find out what really happened...I'll send me back from the future and I'll post the explanation here.

    *poof*

    Hey guys, I'm back from the future. It was nothing. Sorry to disappoint.

    But, there were some interesting things to tell you about future events:
    • KenH is supporting the democratic candidate for President in 2024, after supporting the Republican in 2016, and the Libertarian in 2020.
    • Aaron is doing great an a GenX church in Seattle. He's preaching during the contemporary worship service.
    • TinyTim is starting his second term as governor of West Virginia. There's talk of a "rolling pin scandal," but nothing's come of it as of yet.
    • Dr. Bob has started a special ministry for people over 100. He has a special burden for his peers.
    • Revmitchell is enjoying being the interim at Saddleback. He just moved into Rick Warren's old office this past week. In an unprecedented act of kindness, Rick actually donated his hawaiian shirt collection to Revmitchell.
    • Harold Garvey has been asked to chair the VLNIV (Very Latest New International Version) translation committee.
    • Saggywoman is the CEO of "onlinepolls.com," a business that specializes in random polls about random subject matter.
    • rbell is about to be released from the federal pen, after serving his 10-year sentence for not buying health insurance.
    Sure has been an interesting future... :D
