It's Time... For Time

"Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time."
- Steven Wright

I don't know about you but I'm getting sick of all this popular media that employs time travel as a plot device, treating it as something no more complicated than taking the elevator to the sub-basement.

I'd rather have a zillion "and then she woke up" stories because those we understand as simply fantasy in the guise of fiction. So what if we feel a little cheated for getting sucked in to a good story, at least the details didn't violate all known physical laws.

Time travel, at least as it appears in the movies, is a huge shit sandwich wrapped in tinsel. The perfect confection for the uncritical mind.

"Oooh, look! Shiny! Om-nom-nom-nom!"


If the movie was written realistically Skynet would be attacking Mr. Connors' guileless, unsuspecting, lightly-armed antecedents as they would succumb easily to the most casual of Terminator attacks. But that movie would last only five minutes, including credits, leading me to believe that Skynet is really in the concessions business, producing long, crappy movies that sap our pocketbooks $5 and $10 at a time for popcorn and sodas.

Now it all makes sense.

If this doesn't work Skynet is going to send its Terminators to the Triassic to stomp eozostrondons.
