Remember, remember the 5th of November
You’ve probably heard that phrase at some point and may have said to yourself “Why?” Well, the internet says it has to do with some Guy named Fawkes, but I know the real story. November 5th, 1955 is the day that time travel was created. If you’re a fan of the Back to the Future movies, and I think you are, you know this well. So, in commemoration of the 55th anniversary of Doc Brown’s slip on the wet porcelain, today’s blog is 1.21 bloggowatts of time travel factoids.
First of all, time travel exists. Accept it. The first internet based proof I’ll share with you is a photo that was taken in 1941, capturing a young time traveler in some sporty shades, a graphic tee, and with a modern camera. Check it out:

The next it an even older photo that clearly documents a time traveler who carried his bike and riding gear with him:
Recently, some footage from a Charlie Chaplain shoot revealed an older woman chatting on a cell phone and the video went viral. Check it out:
There you have it. Now that you can accept that it exists, there are 2 things to know.
1. You can’t order a working time machine from the internet. Ask Uncle Rico.
2. BTTF got it right. All three times. Someone involved with the project had to have traveled through time. There is no one way they could have known so much about the STC (space-time continuum) or causing paradoxes as a result of seeing one’s self. Another glaring piece of proof is how intentionally wrong they got the future. Since they had knowledge of the real future, it would have unraveled the fabric of the STC as soon as we started seeing things like the internet being invented. Hoverboards, really? What a hoot. Anyway, in honor of the achievement, and the greatest cinematic slight of hand ever made, enjoy this cake:
and enjoy some of the best scenes of Back to the Future, my favorite movie ever.
Oh yeah, and it’s also Will’s Mom’s birthday.
