Time travellers from the future ‘could be here in weeks’

The first time travellers from the future could materialise on Earth within a few weeks.Physicists around the world are excitedly awaiting the start up of the £4.65 billion Large Hadron Collider, LHC – the most powerful atom-smasher ever built – which is supposed to shed new light on the particles and forces at work in the cosmos and reproduce conditions that date to near the Big Bang of creation. …The debut in early summer could provide a landmark because travelling into the past is only possible – if it is possible at all – as far back as the point of creation of the first time machine. That means 2008 could become “Year Zero” for temporal travel, they argue.Time travel was born when Albert Einstein’s colleague, Kurt Gödel, used Einstein’s theory of relativity to show that travel into the past was possible. Ever since he unveiled this idea in 1949, eminent physicists have argued against time travel because it undermines ideas of cause and effect to create paradoxes: a time traveller could go back to kill his grandfather so that he is never born in the first place.

But, sixty years later, there is still no fundamental reason why time travellers cannot put historians out of business.

Woohoo! I’ve been wanting to do this since I was a kid.

  1. What….kill your grandfather?
    You is one sick dude.

  2. Don’t drink the Kool Aid. 🙄

  3. no, I didn’t know either of my grandfathers,

  4. I was referring to your last sentence in the post.
    /I thought it was funny

  5. Glad to see DeMint get some support.

  6. Yep.
    I’d heard the other day, where some of those folks in Berkeley were starting to back-peddle a little.
    What? Take away our free money? We didn’t mean it.

  7. Brits run out of guns

  8. I saw that this morning.
    The UK government is in such a mess. Too much PC BS here and there, too many immigrants, too many taxes, and too many on the dole.
    I was reading a story the other day, where about 70,000 UK citizens went abroad for healthcare, and that number is expected to triple, in the not too distant future.

  9. Huck will address CPAC, saturday 9AM

  10. Hillary campaign is tight for cash. Campaign mgrs are going without pay

  11. She’ll start knockin’ layen’ em off any time now.

  12. It’s gonna be a loooooooong campaign season.
    Wait…didn’t I say that last year? I forget.
    I’ll bet when she and Bill check under the sofa cushions, they will find some cash. Probably sequentially numbered…probably millions.
    When she has no cash she is pleasant, when she has it she is ruthless. If she goes on the attack again, we’ll know she is in the chips again.

  13. Have y’all taken the quiz yet?
    Henh…just report to the train station.

  14. She already loaned herself $5mil.

  15. dress warmly, comrade

  16. It seems B-HO is pulling away from her in many ways. He took in something like $32millions in donations in January,
    Time for the slime machine to get cranked-up.

  17. Watching American Rifleman, and a tour of the Leupold factory in Beaverton, Ore.

  18. HERE is his super tuesday victory speech.

    This suckah is oinkin for a boinkin

  19. “And while Washington is consumed with the same drama and division and distraction, another family puts up a For Sale sign in the front yard. Another factory shuts its doors. Another soldier waves goodbye as he leaves on another tour of duty in a war that should’ve never been authorized and never been waged.”

    as much as the dems want to return to sept 10, 2001, ignoring jihadism just doesn’t work. Been there, done that. It’s just so Nineties

  20. “It’s a choice between having a debate with the other party about who has the most experience in Washington, or having one about who’s most likely to change Washington. Because that’s a debate we can win”

    experience vs change? hmm, yup I think we will accept that debate. The National security issue will be big next fall.

  21. “And if I am your nominee, my opponent will not be able to say that I voted for the war in Iraq; or that I gave George Bush the benefit of the doubt on Iran; or that I support the Bush-Cheney policy of not talking to leaders we don’t like. And he will not be able to say that I wavered on something as fundamental as whether or not it’s ok for America to use torture – because it is never ok. That is the choice in this election.”

    No, you were in the Illinois Legislature when that vote was taken. And, if you had the opportunity to review the same intelligence documents and reports that the rest of the Senate saw, is it possible that your opinion might have been different? If not, then why not? Every international intelligence estimate supported the decision to stop Saddam’s threat to regional stability and the threat to the global economy. How can you justify doing nothing, especially so soon after 9/11/01?

  22. You won;t have to worry about answering the torture question if you face McCain.

  23. “The Republicans running for President have already tied themselves to the past. They speak of a hundred year war in Iraq and billions more on tax breaks for the wealthiest few who don’t need them and didn’t ask for them – tax breaks that mortgage our children’s future on a mountain of debt at a time when there are families who can’t pay their medical bills and students who can’t pay their tuition.”

    Nobody has spoken about a hundred year war in Iraq. But, if you think that the American military has no business having bases around the world, then that’s an issue we can debate.

    As far as the tax cuts for the rich meme, I’ve already discussed that in detail. Maybe I need to do it again.

  24. “I’ll be the President who ends the tax breaks to companies that ship our jobs overseas and start putting them in the pockets of working Americans who deserve it. And struggling homeowners. And seniors who should retire with dignity and respect.”

    We’ll have the President who nails the “going out of business” sign on the IRS. Tax fairness through the Fair Tax.

  25. “I’ll be the President who finally brings Democrats and Republicans together to make health care affordable and available for every single American.”

    Health care is already available for every single American. Affordability is now, and has always been the crux of the issue. It’s time to have this debate, and take the demogoguery off the table.

  26. “We will put a college education within reach of anyone who wants to go,”

    What country do you live in? A college education is available to anyone who qualifies to go. These days, that just boils down to being able to fill out an aplication for admission, and an application for financial aid.

  27. “Instead of just talking about how great our teachers are, we will reward them for their greatness, with more pay and better support. ”

    That sounds like merit pay. Glad to have you on board.

  28. “And we will harnesses the ingenuity of farmers and scientists and entrepreneurs to free this nation from the tyranny of oil once and for all.”

    You’re going to, what? Harness the ingenuity? Bwahaha.
    How’re you gonna do that Barry? Do you know something about a miracle fuel that nobody else knows? But, if you get elected, you’ll share the secret, and harness the scientists to make the miracle fuel, the entreprenuers to market it, and the farmers to grow it? Gee, what a guy!

  29. I’m glad you can read/listen to B-HO and his empty rhetoric, I sure can’t. I was watching him without sound last night, and just watching his posing without sound, he reminded me of Mussolini.

    Dang, went off surfing, and the tide pulled me way off shore.

  30. I’m serious, go to a speech on youtube by B-HO, and turn the volume off, and just watch his posing and facial expressions.

  31. “And when I am President, we will put an end to a politics that uses 9/11 as a way to scare up votes, and start seeing it as a challenge that should unite America and the world against the common threats of the twenty-first century: terrorism and nuclear weapons; climate change and poverty; genocide and disease.”

    Please listen carefully.

    The surprise attacks of 9/11 had nothing to do with poverty, climate change, nukes, or disease. Get it? Got it? Goooood.

    The fact that you would bring up 9/11 as an issue to win votes, but then criticize anyone who would do the same thing is a little inconsistent, ya’ know?

  32. “We need you to stand with us, and work with us, and help us prove that together, ordinary people can still do extraordinary things.”

    Most of us, who have lived long enough, have gotten over the grandiosity of youth. But, if you still need proof that ordinary people can do extraordinary things, then I have a suggestion. Read your Bible.

    Or, if reading the Bible offends your sensibilities, then read any American History book published before 1970.

  33. “I was a young organizer then, intent on fighting joblessness and poverty on the South Side, and I still remember one of the very first meetings I put together. We had worked on it for days, but no one showed up. Our volunteers felt so defeated, they wanted to quit. And to be honest, so did I.”

    The best cure for joblessness and poverty is …….wait for it …… a job. Not meetings, rallies, causes, rants, and raves. Just a plain old job. C’mon Barry, this really isn’t that tough to get.

  34. Our volunteers felt so defeated, they wanted to quit. And to be honest, so did I.”

    Damn, I sure wish he would’ve followed his feelings then.

  35. “But at that moment, I looked outside and saw some young boys tossing stones at a boarded-up apartment building across the street. They were like boys in so many cities across the country – boys without prospects, without guidance, without hope. And I turned to the volunteers, and I asked them, “Before you quit, I want you to answer one question. What will happen to those boys?” And the volunteers looked out that window, and they decided that night to keep going – to keep organizing, keep fighting for better schools, and better jobs, and better health care. And so did I. And slowly, but surely, in the weeks and months to come, the community began to change.”

    The community changed? Was is change for the better, or just change for change sake? Can you prove any of this or is this just a warm sounding story?

  36. “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those boys who have little; who’ve been told that they cannot have what they dream; that they cannot be what they imagine.”

    We are, that we are…

    Sounds blasphemous to me.

  37. “We are the hope of the father who goes to work before dawn and lies awake with doubts that tell him he cannot give his children the same opportunities that someone gave him.”

    “We are the hope of the woman who hears that her city will not be rebuilt; that she cannot reclaim the life that was swept away in a terrible storm.”

    “We are the hope of the future; the answer to the cynics who tell us our house must stand divided; that we cannot come together; that we cannot remake this world as it should be.”

    Good grief. He’s not running for President. He’s running for Messiah.

    It is heresy for anyone who claims to be a Christian to make these statements.

  38. Just saw video of the National Guard up in Oregon, trying to get the roads open from all that snow, and they say more is on the way.

    On another note, with the Texas primary coming up 4 Mar, we are bracing for all the candidates to assault us from the air, on land, and by sea.

  39. It’ll be here before you know it..

  40. One of the things I hate about snow, is how noisy it is when you walk.
    /i miss Samurai Jack

  41. Your state is up on the 4th, too?

  42. Only when it’s frozen. You DO have some diverse interests, don’t you?

  43. Good grief. He’s not running for President. He’s running for Messiah.

    It is heresy for anyone who claims to be a Christian to make these statements.

    Yup, he sounds a bit more muslim than Christian to me. (wonder why) hhhmmmm……

  44. I don’t know when Miss. has it’s primary, or if it’s a caucus or a primary. It has generally been decided before it gets to us.

  45. Robert D, did you ever see the Samurai Jack series on Cartoon Network?
    It was awesome, great morality tales. I have a SJ t-shirt.

  46. Seriously, honestly, watch B-HO on video without sound…it’s eerily similar to Mussolini facial expressions.

  47. No, can’t say as I have. That’s why I say you have a diverse field of interests.

  48. Henh…I always liked listening to different drummers.

  49. I’m with you on that n2l, he’s hiding the real agenda.

  50. I like the different drummers too.

  51. Dang, fading and gotta get up.
    Hunker down up yonder Robert D. Grab the kitty and snuggle.

  52. Now That’s funny. My kitty was already snuggled up when I clicked the bassists video. He didn’t care for it too much, needed mama. I guess this is g’nite, I’ll check in tomorrow.

  53. Henh.
    Those low bass tones were too much for the kitty.
    Ma’boy is immune, he grew up a rock’n’roll kitty. One night I put on a tape of Pink Floyd’s Division Bell concert, and he was up there batting the TV screen, from all of the lights flashing on stage.
