Time Travel

Blather goes surfing through the mists of time. Kind of…

Well, in the interests of science (and staving off the mind-numbing, soul-destroying tedium that is my miserable pathetic life) we here at Blather Paranormal Investigations Inc., decided to build a time machine. Well, ok. Not exactly. My early flirtations with worm-holes, flux capacitors and white coats have left me a little vexed. As was Jasper, my girlfriend’s cat, who cheerfully helped me with an early experiment involving a particle accelerator, a tin of tuna chunks and a short trip to the outer Hebrides. He is, apparently, recovering well. In 14th century Russia…

So, enough farting around. We?ve gone to the only reliable source on the whole planet for advice on such matters: the web. Some cursory surfing led us across a few gems, including this piece which informs us that worm-holes are indeed the way to go. The only difficulty rests with the use of something called ?exotic matter?, which nobody has figured out how to invent just yet. Fantastic.

Then there was this site which gives a delightful little run down of the basic physics that underlie the concepts of time travel. Gripping stuff.

Next come the comedians at Time Travel Fund who, quite bluntly, want your cash. They want it so they can establish a fund, which they will use to revive your dead body when it becomes possible to do so a couple of centuries from now. Uh huh. Listen lads, if you’re going to try to swindle people then at least try not to do it while ripping off the plot of some dodgy sci-fi novel. It’s just embarrassing. Did you not see Battlefield Earth?

Anyway, there are hundreds of sites out there devoted to this fascinating and important subject, many of which you can find links to here.

If you get bored with that, you can play the Time Travel game over on p45.
