The Problem with Time Travel

Post by Aquarello » Tue Feb 16, 2010 12:10 am

Drifting, Alan realized where all the probes had gone. He had traveled in time. Meanwhile, Earth had traveled in space.


(Seriously: have you ever read a time-travel story that takes into account the fact that the Earth turns and moves around the sun? Go one hour either way, and earth is 66,600 miles away....)

Why, yes. A stunningly brilliant twabble :D , on this very theme, was posted here.

Also, the whole solar system is moving at a goodly clip, much more than 67K mph.

Yes, I have come across that problem before in time travel stories, but I can't remember which one it is.

I've read so many.

Still, nicely stated in 100 characters. :thumbs:

I was trying to inspire horror, and instead I have inspired "yo mama" jokes. Woe is me. :(

The machine partly worked.
The intended horror was changed into a "yo mamma" jokes.
That is what happens with C+ in math.

Bob should have listened to his ma and there would have not been 70 foot bears attacking his old employers headquarters.
Drabble By Morgan Olson

Bob blamed his huge mistake on his poor grasp of math.
More specifically the c+ he got in physics.
Bob had dropped out of his Doctor of Engineering program because Bob had tried Enzyte.
Frustration at not being able to loose his erection, his wife allowed Bob to fulfill his poly dreams.
All of Bob's wifes coworkers got pregnant.
It was at the company Christmas party.
All the ladies had sat on Santa's north pole.
"Why am i building robots when in a couple of years i could have a legions of children." Bob thought out loud to no one.

it scares me because i have thrown more than one toaster out without near so nice of a send off. i bet if the toast story was still on its way (instead of last year) this would have been the perfect twabble to have been on that drabblecast. i like it a lot.
