      When stealing a train, it could be 1 of 2 reasons: a hold up or a science experiment.

          I imagine even after the body has been decomposed for a while the clothes would retain the scent.
        • 24th March 2010 by agentdc7
          I was thinking that too, but can scent last 70 years?
        • 24th March 2010 by NateSean
          I'm sure the scent had something to do with it.

            In 1885, if you know someone is going to kill you on a specific date, it is impossible to leave the city to avoid this from occurring.

                      When charging Indians get way too close to your car, they'll step 50 feet back and charge again so you can back away in time.

                        Be careful when choosing a fake name when going back in time, you might have to defend it's reputation for the future.

                          In 1885, if you get killed, your grave and tombstone will be placed next to a random cave in the middle of nowhere.

                            If a train hits some weird car looking thing that is on train tracks, the train will just keep going like it never happened, no one that saw the incident will check to see if you're okay, and no one in law enforcement will arrive for at least 10 minutes.

                              Call Buford Tannen "Mr. Tannen" or "sir". Do NOT call him "Mad Dog".

                                When dealing with crooks like Tannen, never give an inch, and maintain discipline at all times.

                                  Hill Valley law enforcement in 1885 was pretty dim, seeing as how one of Tannen's lackeys reminded him they were robbing the Pine City Stage the next day, within earshot of, like, everyone in the town.

                                    True. But you'd think, since everyone now had advance notice that they were going to do that, that the sherrif could have taken steps to prevent it.

                                    Actually, if I recall correctly they were arrested for that shortly after the showdown.

                                  If gasoline becomes a huge problem for time travel, use steam next time.

                                    If a gun toting bad guy starts shooting at the floor and telling you to dance, the best way to do so is to moon walk and jump on a loose floor board to throw a spittoon all over the guy with the gun.

                                    If Marty Mcfly hadn't thrown a pie plate to hit the gun in Buford Tannen's hand to keep him from shooting Doc, we wouldn't have frisbees

                                                      Deloreans are not heavy enough to derail a train.

                                                        If in 1955 I learn exactly how and when I am going to die, rather than just rembering the information and avoiding putting myself in this situation that gets me killed, it is better to send a teenage kid to that point in time to save me, especially if it is a kid that has shown a penchant for screwing things up.

                                                          That is easily the biggest plot hole in the trilogy.
