Crap.  Even in 2104 we have trolls?
But wasn't it fun to think you won the lottery, just for a second there???

In 2104 we may only have trolls. 

You know, the concept in that article would make a ---smurfing--- incredible concept for an episodic videogame series.

Eh, the Wolfenstein series was mostly about escaping from a Nazi camp.  Nothing like this.

Expand the concept a little and you've got Time Travel Cops, going around history undoing stupid things that irresponsible time travellers had done.  Even if you want to keep the scope narrow and keep unkilling Hitler the concept lends itself to quite a few ways that could be done compellingly.  It's a little Quantum Leap but if you did it without being all preachy it wouldn't feel like that.

Or, you could just go back to the day of your best friend's wedding and put a banana in his tailpipe.

Couldn't pull up the story but Chad's last post reminded me of this show:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyagers%21

Not sure if you'd be old enough to remember it Chad, but it wasn't too bad.
Ajax should have been named Warlord, not Swan.

First off, Hoopz is right.

If you have seen some of those Star Trek Wanna-be forums, you would think those guys were serious too.

So Chad you want a video based on the movie time cop?

Wouldnt going back in time and killing Hitler make you not go back in time and kill Hitler in the future?
Back in MY day we lived on the moon and we had to build a rocket ship from scratch to get to the Earth before we suffocated.

Getting back on topic, you guys should read "The End of Eternity" by Isaac Asimov. It's one of my favourite sci fi novels. Very thought provoking and much better than his robot books. As far as I am aware, Asimov was the first novelist to really explore the true implications of time travel.

That is funny, it helps that we're all forum junkies I'm sure.

You could always go back and fix that.  ;)



P.S.
I actually went back in time to post this when it was a current topic but I saw bulletin 3295 stating that you can't go back and change the course of a thread already in progress.

Where is old Chad anyway?  He hasn't been around in over a month (very unlike a guy with 29000 posts LOL)

He depressed so many people near him that the pure density of their outlooks on life created a black hole, sucking half of New England in?
