  1. i just watched "the time machine" again.

    say man continues to advance and we don't destroy ourselves, etc., what the hell will things be like in the year 4003?! obviously no one knows, but it's mind blowing to think about what the distant future might be like.

    i will predict we DO develop a way to travel into the future. WE CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW. if one person stands "still" on earth and i travel on a fast rocket, i'm slowing time for myself (although not much), thus extending my life expectancy slightly further than the person standing on earth. what we need to do is find a way to travel at very, very high velocities.

    for those that don't know, if you could have a velocity a large % of the speed of light, IN YOUR LIFETIME you could see what the future is like. it would not FEEL like you lived any longer, but you could fast forward into the future and see what it is like. i've discussed this before in another thread:
