If you cause your parents to never meet, you will be erased from history. However, if you change past events so that the way you grew up would logically be radically different, you will still remember the upbringing you received in the original timeline. (0) Comments
Chuck Berry didn't write "Johnny B Goode", he stole the song from a time-traveling fan who decided to play it at a school dance before Chuck had written it. No one really knows where the song came from in the first place. (0) Comments
It IS a scientific word, when spelled correctly as gigawatt. It's a perfectly correct pronunciation of the giga- prefix -- despite the fact that, along with the rise in popular usage of the terms gigabyte and gigahertz, people have now overwhelmingly become accustomed to using a hard g for the prefix's first syllable. The prefix comes from the Ancient Greek word giga, which means giant, and which also appears in the word gigantic (and even in the word giant, although in that example the second g got dropped in the Middle Ages).
Apparently, a time-travelling experiment fuelled by stolen nuclear materials and a shootout with Libyan terrorists that results in their grisly deaths in front of a JC Penny will not get you questioned by local authorities. (0) Comments
A time travel trilogy will thoroughly confuse people visiting this website so much that they will continue to post learnings on the wrong movie even when it's pointed out to them over and over. (0) Comments
If I have a life-changing, one week experience with a person who I become so fond of that I name my kid after him, neither myself nor my wife will notice if said kid ends up looking exactly like that person. (0) Comments
In 1955, random old men and kids can roam the hallway of high schools without being questioned. Said kids can even attend lunch and get in trouble with the principle without once being questioned about being an actual student at the school. (0) Comments
Well, two things: first, this isn't referring to the trilogy but this actual film; and second, the majority of this film takes place in 1955, where things familiar in '85 were novel in '55, e.g. skateboards. Excuse me while I go find other learnings to devalue.
Coming face to face with yourself means one of two possibilities. One: You could put yourself into shock and you could simply pass out or Two: the encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe. Granted, that's the worse case scenario. The destruction might, in fact, be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy. Either way that's a relief. (0) Comments
It is possible to replicate a DeLorean and clone yourself after coming back from the past to the future to see yourself going back to the past creating a loophole of going back to the past and coming back to the present day. (0) Comments
If I want to do anything that involves loud explosions, plutonium, gun fire, car wheels peeling and vans crashing into photobooths, all without being caught by a passer-by or the police ever coming, the middle of an empty mall parking lot in California is the place to do it. (0) Comments
If you go back in time and prevent your parents from meeting, you will be erased from existence even though you wouldn't have been able to go back in time to erase yourself from existence if you hadn't been born. (0) Comments
It's not a big deal if I go back in time, change the past, thus changing the entire dynamics of my family and their personalities while also erasing all of the childhood memories I had; I would not miss any of that one bit and would also fit right in with my "new" family. (0) Comments
