Random Thought: Time Travelling

Last night I was having some trouble sleeping and I started to think about time travelling. I was thinking that if it were possible in the future and if it were easily accessible (like it is in the movies), then how come I haven't met my future self yet?

I came up with a few reasons:
  • My future self chose to meet me when I was too young to recognize or comprehend who he was.
  • My future self was too old to recognize.
  • The intergalactic robotic war in the future had left my future self so disfigured, I was rendered unrecognizable to my current self.
  • My future self used a memory clearing device on my current self thus removing the event from my memories (like in Men In Black).
  • My future self dies before the technology is widely available to the public.
  • The Space/Time Lords of the future demand that all time travellers wear either a cloaking device or a temporary full body transformation device when travelling to the past.

I know, I'm a geek who has watched one too many movies. But it begs the question, if it were possible to meet a version of yourself 30 years from now, what would you ask him/her? Or what do you think your future self would like to tell your current self?

Time travel in the future. Still- it,s

If I could ask my future self a question, it would be something along the lines of when did they stop making those terrible American Pie spinoffs and sequels?

Seriously though, I'd probably want to know about any crisis' that had befallen mankind in that time frame or something.

Interesting question... usually I think I would rather go BACK in time and not make some of my mistakes.

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

About The Lam

Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand.…
