I think you grabbed your maths teachers chest while caught up in a volcano of teenage hormonal lustings.

Edit: Das being back pleases me very very much, I am very much looking forward to hearing what he's been up to.

As we have a couple of new registrants to the forum, I want to know their opinion on how we successfully achieved time travel....

I'd refer to the Big Book of Voodoo

The 4th dimension is time, or so we're told - taking into account that 2D and 3D are all a matter of how many directions something can move, I think it's probably fair to say that if someone figured out how to time travel (I'm going with the faster-than-the-speed-of-light theory), it wouldn't be limited to one direction i.e. they'd be able to travel in the past or future or whichever way's their fancy, but as it was mentioned, because of the whole paradox thing maybe the the effects of traveling back would never even be felt?

I once read a story about someone who could travel in time and he kept bringing his past self into the present but because the past him was now in the present/future, the present/future him ceased to exist so he simply disappeared when he brought the kid to his time with him. Then the kid would grow up and repeat this whole cycle a couple more times before he realized why he kept disappearing when it happened. :P

We went to the past by flying around the earth in the direction opposite of its natural rotation at the speed of light plus one.

We went to the future by ingesting the cookies to be found at Rihanna's pool house.

And we can also freeze time by stuffing a dollar bill in the parking meter.

Well I'm glad to see we're looking deeply into this, some interesting theories here....

....however, I just meant - if you look at the first posting date, and the last, we've actually achieved time travel....honestly, look, really, ish....ahem

Thing is though....and sshhhh....keep this to yourself....I think Ray and I are/were among the oldest members of the forum, so this creakiness is extra noticeable now. Not sure how old Zoom is, I always assumed he was like 90 or something . Everyone else are like wee young whipper snappers by comparison.

You're probably right! My first game was Curse, though I remember my brother playing MI2 when I was younger, and he's ten years older than me so yeah :P

Huz I think it's more likely you read the thread in the past, and travelled into the future to post this.

I remember this thread like it was yesterday....perhaps because it was!
