    Here is my idea of a Time Machine!!!


    I want one SO BAD!!!!!

    Because I really need to go back to, Oh, say 1960. Maybe the Late 50s.

    OK, lets make it 1955!

    I could get a job SO EASILY at the Hallicrafters Plant, with my Boat Anchor expertise. I would work on the SX-88 line!

    I could buy a house out in the Western Chicago suburbs for maybe $5000. And buy a new 55 Chevy for just a SONG!!!!

    Life might be a little tough with no Cellphones, Netbooks, Internet, Facebook, Microwave ovens, GPS, Digital clocks, and Surface Mount Technology, but I would be all set for those when they came along.

    Life was so HIGH QUALITY back then. All we had to WORRY about was the Ruskies sending over a NUKE!

    I would choose 1969. The Pill was in its heyday, and AIDS had yet to rear its head.

    Oh, yeah, and I was working at AES, Milwaukee,
    where I reconditioned an SX-88 or two.

    Of course my brain would also find itself
    back in that year too, so I would have
    no idea what one would be worth today.

    But without the Flux Capacitor, what good is it, really?

    The one I built in 2028 looks nothing at all like that .

    A paradox: I'd go back in time to when I was 13 and talk some sense into me so I wouldn't make the stupid mistakes that I made since then. Of course, things would be so different that I wouldn't be who and where I am now. (This is the basis of a sci-fi movie script I wrote: Precious Time.)

    Given the chance, though, I'd go headlong into the future--I want to see how we end up wiping ourselves out. (I'm betting it happens before the Sun goes nova or when my business partner pays up on the money he owes me.)

    I thought you knew. You absolutely can't flux without it.

    Just like many of you guys, I'd like to go back in time.
    A few chosen words to myself when i was seventeen or so
    would do good. Indeed it would.:p
    Perhaps even today when i'm 57 it could help.
    But maybe it's to late now.
    I ended up being a HAM. Sort of....
