This thread will die a horrible, horrible death involving whatever is under Nute's robes. I have forseen it. The general incident that is. Not any particulars...

Um...

Unless China nukes us, I don't think a year from now is going to be any different.

But now I will leave a message from myself for the Nute in the future to read:

Hello and greetings Future Nute.
How are you? The past is going okay, but I'm not sure how it's going to turn out. Maybe you can tell me.
I'm reading 1984 right now. In the future, has the Party achieved total control over your daily life and begun observing you through telescreens and hidden microphones? It would be a shame if you were killed in the purges and were unable to read this message. If the Party hasn't taken control, have you at least HELPED? I mean all this work I've been putting into the...er...stuff. I would hate for all that to go to waste.
How was Episode II, assuming that the great upheavel around the rise of the Party didn't make that movie not come out.
Have they invented flying cars yet? that would suck if they haven't. i mean they promised flying cars and where the hell are the flying cars damnit

I just realized there's no way for Future Nute to contact me so this is all a waste of time.

I'd like to tell myself that when I jumpstart the warp engines cold on the event horizon of Cygnus X-1 and slingshot myself out of danger through a subspace rift, I must remember to calculate in the mass of acceleration or I could wind up being temporally misplaced into the past.

Good luck, me! Shoot the rapids.

Exclamation

Wally the space dolphin notes that automobiles display the most curious behavior of any of Earth's land-dwelling species with their strange linear herding patterns, bioluminescent mating displays that can be seen from space and the way they swallow human beings, only to disgourge them--apparently unharmed--miles away from where they started.

Hey there, big guy, how've ya been? Ever make 20 kills in a game of CS? Seen the outside world recently? I wouldn't know much about that, I haven't been there for a long while. (I would, but the electronically controlled door operators, those servants of the mysterious world order, haven't approved our visa yet.)

Before I forget, please, please tell me you've finally got that personal 270Mbit T4 line installed? And don't say you haven't got the money. It's like I keep telling myself: All you gotta do is hack Microsoft, and steal a few billion off Bill Gates. Hey, so long as Microsoft is on the receiving end, bank robbing is ethical. And deface some of their sites while your at it. Oh, and taking some source code wouldn't go amiss.

Anyway, I hope you acheived those, and all your other dreams. And for the love of god, keep that cupboard shut.

*suddenly, a phone booth, with a funky-looking antenna appears*

<FONT COLOR = "white">*gets out of phone booth*

Whoa. Cool ride.</FONT>

Whoa! Dude, you're me!

<FONT COLOR = "white">From the future, dude.</FONT>

Uh, what's with the 80s surfer accent?

<FONT COLOR = "white">Well, y'see dude, in a few months, this is gonna become real popular again. It's that whole philosophy of space-time being circular, and the far future curving back on itself to connect with the distant past, n' stuff.</FONT>

Excellent, man. But, how do you know all this?

<FONT COLOR = "white">Oh, the girl <strike>I'm</strike> <strike>you're</strike> we're going with is a Physics major.</FONT>

Wha? I thought "Crisis-girl" was an English major.

<FONT COLOR = "white">Not her, dude; the one you'll meet in September, in Witchcraft class. You know, the black-haired chick you caught checkin' you, er, us out last winter?</FONT>

She's a wiccan/goth too? Awesome!!!

<FONT COLOR = "white">She is most righteous, me-dude. But, y'know, it's only a possible future, so I may be changing it just by telling you, or me. Whoa, wierd.</FONT>

It is most circuitous, dude. But, where did I get the booth?

<FONT COLOR = "white">Oh! The future-me wanted me to give myself this. I guess that's you.

*hands over the Phoenix Gate*

You're supposed to do some stuff here, then jump to 2026 and meet up with some guy called Rufus. He'll give you the phone booth. Then you'll come to 2002 and give it to me before using the Phoenix Gate to dance back to here.

*looks around*

And it's great to see all you guys again, BTW.

Oh, and Nute, I have an important message from you to yourself, dude.</FONT>

Quote:
Don't break it. Whatever you do, don't break it, or all my plans will fall apart.
<FONT COLOR = "white">He said <strike>he</strike> you'd know what he was talking about.

Well, I've gotta get gone, folks.

Be excellent to each other.

*re-enters booth, and dials a number*</FONT>

*booth vanishes with a flash of light and a wild guitar riff*

Whoa. Surreal.

Sorry, guys, what were we talking about?

What is it with phone booths and time traveling? First Dr. Who, then Bill & Ted...

Come to think of it phone booths play an important place in many a sci-fi tale. The Matrix, for example. Let's not forget Superman...

Methinks there's a thesis in here somewhere... ahhh, I can't be bothered.

I am aware of at least six methods of travelling through time:

A slingshot manoeuvre around a star. This is very difficult and dangerous because if the calculations are off even by a degree, the starship will go out of control (at best), or be destroyed (at worst).

The phone booth from the future capable of travelling along the Circuits of Time. The booth is cramped and uncomfortable, but generally dependable and easy to repair.

Doc Brown's Delorean. Any vehicle equipped with a flux capacitor can breach the temporal fabric when it reaches 88 miles per hour. The Delorean is very accurate, but can travel only through time, meaning that you will be in the same location when you suddenly appear on a set of train tracks or in front of a stampede.

The Key of Time used by Rini to travel between the 30<sup>th</sup> and 20<sup>th</sup> centuries. The Key of time can (usually) only carry one traveller at a time, and all time travellers must confront Sailor Pluto, who lives inside the "Timestream," and may be an artificial life-form.

The Phoenix Gate. The gate is powered by magic and draws the user to a certain event that they must concentrate on. Like all magical travel, the gate has a mind of its own, and will take a traveller (called a "TimeDancer") where they need to be rather than where they wish to go. The gate is also difficult to control, although it does have a built-in translator (allowing TimeDancers to speak the language of where/whenever they appear), and possibly a homing/anchor system that pulls the TimeDancer back to his or her "proper" timeline regardless of any changes made.

The Song of Time, when played on the Ocarina of Time, by a Guardian of Time, will allow travel to certain time-coordinates. Like the Phoenix Gate, the Song and Ocarina will only transport travellers where they are needed, and the traveller has no control over the destination. This system requires both the Song itself and the Ocarina, as a measure of security.
