Great Scott!

Last night in the shower I had a startling realization. See if you can follow me...

So in the movie Back to the Future, Marty McFly travels from 1985 to 1955, a time-distance of 30 years. In just 3 short years, someone could make a movie about someone traveling back to the year 1980, and that would be a 30 year distance, too.

Jeannie agreed that this seemed f@*#'ed up. Does anyone else out there feel like this is f@*#'ed up? Doesn't the span between 1955 and 1985 seem infinitely longer than the span between 1980 and now-ish?

It does, but that's because we're all now officially old, sorry to say.

What I find more amazing is the number of Back to the Future references in this blog.
