Having perused this thread most thoroughly, I can report that it contains nothing worth reading until you get to page 4273.

I shall have to disagree good Sir! Posts 105, 367-372, and 589-590 all have very valuable information...

AND post 236 does in fact provide the winning "Power Ball" numbers for that week... (power ball is a multi state lottery played in the US)

My own experience of travelling in both time and space has been that it's a lot like browsing the inter-net; you know that more or less everything is out there, but finding it is another matter. Which is why I come so late to this thread. I invite anyone who shares my twin passions of time-travel and music to consider the link in my signature.

And Mr.Ringling, do you have coordinates for the area of the potentiality from which the Power Ball numbers were obtained? I should hate to cheat, but a few extra shekels would pay for some much needed repairs to my locomotor.

I find it can get very confusing when visiting an era for the first time, discovering that the natives have already met me!

Quite simply. The numbers were posted after the powerball draw. No time travel  involoved. Inless you sought to use them, in which case you would be forced to travel backwards.

Incedently, that picture is simply marvelous. Wait. It has been posted, hasn't it? Oh dear. I simply cannot get the hang of this whole time travel thing...

I'm sure I've told you all about my theory concerning the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Haven't I?

I believe you did. But I have enough difficulty remembering who I am in the morning, much less remembering what happened more than thirty minutes ago, so perhaps you would be kind enough to reiterate it?

I would just like to say that I entirely disagree with both the general thrust and the particulars of the theory as will be outlined on page 17 and would have thought a newer member would have been wary of parading such passel of half-truths as though they were gospel. However the picture of a kitten wearing a deerstalker and smoking a pipe was most amusing and drole "elementary my dear kitson" indeed!

Very well.

The fossil record indicates that the dinosaurs went extinct around sixty-five million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous period. Theories for this range from runaway climate change, through asteroid impact to monstrous volcanic eruptions. (The Deccan traps in India were formed around 65 MYA, and are on the other side of the world to the KT [Kretaceous-Tertiary. The impact marks the transition between the two periods] crater. It's possible the earth focussed the shockwaves like a lens, causing the eruptions, but I digress.)

Personally, I believe they were hunted to extinction. I believe that people from the future consulted the fossil record and saw no harm in goin on an expedition back in time to a year or so before the KT event. As the hunting parties became more popular, dinosaurs became more uncommon, until finally being wiped out by great white hunters from the future.

There is nothing more bracing than nipping back to the Jurrasic period and filling your shopping cart with fresh velociraptor, let me tell you!

Velociraptor isn't really my thing. I prefer mammoth, myself. Wromg time period, I know, but to a time traveller, what are time periods but rooms in which to acquire certain experiences?

Yes you did!

But I don't expect you to remember, since you were in 1957 at the time  Smiley

I've always said that the greatest obstacle to time travel is grammar.

And if I haven't, I can assure you I will.
