    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.

      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.

        If any of us had gone back to 1955 and gotten hit by a car driven by Lorraine's dad, she'd have fallen in love with us.

          A teenage boy and an aging mad scientist being friends is very little to concern yourself about.

                                      I was confused when I saw this film for the first time because I didn't know what the professor meant by 'Jigawatts'.

                                      Isildur: It's a joke dude. Based on the fact that it IS the popular pronunciation. I'm a Physics major in University. I know what Gigawatts are >> Take it easy...

                                      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). www.askoxford.com/concise_oed/giga?view=uk

                                                Maybe this is where the phrase 'your mom' probably came from. Either that, or it just made it more popular.

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.

I'm glad nothing's changed since then.
