    Not to mention what the Victorians would have thought of internet porn.

    The copyright on the bottom of his page is 2009. So he's from the past?

    We're all from the past, and "tomorrow is promised to no one."

    So wait, if TT really does exist would the secret people running it not go forward in time to find all the people who were going to blab about it, then travel back into the past stop them finding out about it in the first place so thay cant blab about it?

    Unless he knew they were go do that from when he TT, so he travelled back back and stopped them from travelling back, and this would continue until they went back so far as to remove the fact they somebody made TT possible, then the question would be how did they travel back to make TT impossible.

    And with that, Dr Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum accelerator and turned into banana.

    Well, Andrew Basiago says it is impossible to change past events of a specific timeline, and if you tried, you would only be acting as a causal agent in the already established truths about the timeline, since if someone did change the timeline, then we would already be living in the altered timeline. However, Basiago claims that Project Pegasus revealed the existence of multiple quantum realities, therefore changing the past may simply be a matter of acting as a causal agent for events in another timeline.

    He did it in another timeline, and Andrew brought the book over to this quantum universe.

    The guy must be a time-traveler. His website says that his forthcoming book will be published in 2011. :)

    As far as causality and such:

    The bad news is that you are slipping through alternate realities continuously.

    Remember when you couldn't find your keys the other day? You would swear that you left them right there on the kitchen counter, but they weren't there later. Things is you DId leave them right there on the kitchen counter. Somewhere between leaving the keys there and looking for them, you shifted to an alternate timeline where you actually left the keys over there on the end table next to the couch where you found them.

    Just try to roll with this kind of thing, and don't think about it too much. And if you DO remember President Stevenson being elected back in '52, don't waste too much time trying to convince everyone else. they'll just think you're nuts.

    I preferred John Titor. He was reclusive and mysterious, which made him more entertaining and plausible than giving public talks and "BUY MY BOOK PLOX"

    1/10 would not fap

    Yes, sounds just like modern physics, where Occam has run out of replacement blades.

    I've never thought of that. Really. It is amazing.

    Using your time machine to send your grandfather hungry bobcats in a box with a Schrödinger device inside. It means that you simultaneously sent your granddad hungry half-alive bobcats and you didn't. That is a new totally unexplored kind of paradox.
