    Are there items for going back as well as forward in time? Don’t forget to take a key chain….(See Monty comic).

    Do not take a defibrolator. We were back a couple thousand years, and decided to test it on some guy the Romans had just executed. People still talk about it.

    That military “horse” thingy….
    didn’t they already use that once?


    Someplace called “Troy.”

    I prefer the wooden rabbit.

    Ever notice time travelers never come back? Here’s why- Traveling foward in time has never been possible so those who go back stay there. Unfortunatly, those who do travel back in time arive at the point in space where their part of the planet was at that time. As the planet is in constant motion (at an incredible rate of speed), they always materialise in an inhospitable enviroment, usually the hard vacuum of outer space which is, of course, invariably fatal.

    Time is a human construct. Time just measures the vibrations of subatomic particals. To go back in time, all the particals in the universe would have to be reversed. One can travel forward in time because speed (appears to) slows down the particle vibrations of the moving body. And yes one would have to adjust to the planetary movement if one went back in time.

    My grandfather (an old Cavalryman) is laughing in his grave: the ‘stableboy’ who earned the base pay rate has to be replaced with a team of robotic engineers with 6 figure salaries!

    If the baldness thing worked, wouldn’t the farm boy sof that time have hairy feet?

    How do I get out of this chicken$#!+ outfit? ;-)

    Actually, according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, the faster you travel, time slows down. If you travel just under the speed of light, you can travel forward at a rapid rate.
    I feel that if one can break the light barrier (you may remember the cartoon TV show, Star Blazers, which had a ship powered by tachyon ion particles, which do happen to be real, and do travel faster than light), you can travel backward in time.

    Robotic horse anyone?

    Traveling forward in time IS possible. I do it every day.

    Upside down in housing, no pay raises in sight, Walmart taking over the nation, helping China, not the USA, schools without enough books and on and on and here’s the military, spending millions or billions on robotic horses. How far down the toilet are Americans going to allow this nation go??

    also very effective as a girlfriend repellant.

    & @Ryan (probably the older Ryan)

    Regarding time travel and the planetary movement… Those calculations only come into effect when one breaks the gravitational force of the planet (or other heavenly body) that one is on. Unless, of course, you were talking about leaping out of time and back in again at a different point, in which case you are correct; but, that would be “time leaping” (or “time jumping” depending on regional terminology). True “time travel” is simply an accelerated movement forward or backwards through time. Therefore, if you are on Earth when you start your movement, Earth’s gravitational force would keep you on Earth until you stopped; unless of course you traveled to a point in time when the Earth didn’t/no longer exists, or you methodology created a force to rival that of the gravitational force already placed upon you. Which, of course, can be accomplished if you were in a space vehicular model; but at that point, those calculations should already be configured in to avoid interstellar collisions, and you would also already be prepared for the “vacuum of space”.
