Time Travel is fun. Research and read about the past, or speculate about, plan and then create, the future. Hold an antique artifact in your hand - a Roman coin, a Victorian revolver, or a 1932 radio tube - and imagine who else held this item, and the journey through time it has made. For the future, one need only wait to travel there.
[Update: May 10, 2019] Just getting more and more weird. Insane. Flying thru the time-rifts, it just keep getting nuttier... (is that even a word?) 😀
[Update: May 7, 2017] Ok, so Donald Trump is the President of the USA, and Elon Musk, a private citizen running a public company, has taken over the US Space Program. He has just lifted a spy satellite for the US Gov't that can monitor anything, and his rockets launch and then return their primary boost stage to earth for a gentle, controlled landing. England has voted to withdraw from the European Union, and now has a new Conservative Prime Minister named Theresa May, (not to be confused with the leader of the Green Party in Canada, Elizabeth May). Ms. May (the British one) has begun the "Brexit" process. And today, France just elected a 39-year old former investment banker to be their President, who promises closer ties with Europe. As I travel into the future, it seems to be getting a bit silly.🤨
CIty on the Edge... of Forever!
I watched Star Trek when I was younger, and was impressed by the quality of some of the shows. They were about ideas, as much as action and adventure. "The City on the Edge of Forever" was first rate. It was written by Harlan Ellison, a fine writer, and I think my interest in vacuum tubes and other fringe-science ionic devices might have come from the scene shown here. (yes, I had the spelling of Harlan Ellison's name wrong. My bad. Mr. Ellison has had a big life, and he claimed in the documentary, "Dreams with Sharp Teeth", he is on his last book, because he is dying. Hell, we are all dying - especially the younger folks. They are all dying quicker than ever now, sadly. I hope Mr. Ellison rages hard against the dying of the light. Every nanosecond matters...)
