TDmNr 700x470 Doh! Science! Humor

Just goes to prove that the smarter you are the less common sense you have, and that you should ALWAYS OBEY THE TIMELINE!

  1. The rotation of the Earth would be the least of your problems. But hey, that’s why Doctor Who exists.

  2. Problem with interstellar travel #374 – nothing stays still.

  3. Yeah, the galaxy moves too, and the universe expands.

  4. Its funny how people think this in this time. When time travel was practicality in 2134 we realized that the movement of the earth through space drags any temporal phenomena along with it.

  5. Hmmm. This is off unless he traveled a significant amount of time. Time travel is supposed to hamper or slow the singular objects movement through space while allowing a movement through time. Gravity plays a Huge role in this.

  6. gonna make a comment here just so i dont forget once i

  7. I’d rather have a space machine, anyway.

  8. This cartoon is flawed. When you move through TIME, you are NOT moving through SPACE (not outer space, space as in distance). If you used a time machine, you would disappear and reappear in the EXACT SAME SPOT as when you left, just later or earlier in time. Things that are moving (such as the earth in this cartoon) would have NO effect on when you traveled in time because you AREN’T moving in space, just TIME! You haven’t moved one millimeter in DISTANCE, just TIME! The only danger upon reappearing in the past or present would be if you went back 1000 years and there was a lake in the spot where you had left in the future, or, if you went 1000 years in the future, someone had built a skyscraper in the same spot as when you left the past and you appeared in the middle of a floor! Get it?

  9. lol, the earth is too close to the sun.

  10. No Korinthian, thats not the “point” of the comic. The “point” is that time travel is impossible because of the laws of physics, but for the wrong reason. Nothing to do with space displacement! I knew someone wouldnt get it.

    7ftjesus: trolling? thats what you call trolling? physics? damn.

    • Ok I have no idea if you’re serious or not anymore. I’m just gonna say I thought the comic was clever and amusing, and leave it at that.

    • Nope, I nailed the point of the comic while you did not for the reasons already stated.

      • Ok, Korinthian. One last time. Try to pay attention. SPACIAL relocation is not the same as CHRONAL. Spacial relocation moves you through space or distance measure in inches, feet, miles ect. Chronal relocation moves you through time measured in seconds, minutes, days, ect. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. One cannot move you the same way as the other. If you travel in time you do NOT travel in space and vice versa. It’s so easy to understand I think you have to be f***ing with me because you can’t be that dim. Either that or your confusing time travel with teleportation. Once again, time machine moves you through time NOT space. teleporter moves you through space, not time. I’m very, very smart, so please stop. It’s embarrassing.

  11. time travel is a fun idea however implausible.

  12. “So you are saying that earth is at the same location during all points of time? Because if it isn’t, this is what fucks things up.”

    TIME IS NOT THE SAME AS SPACE! JESUS F***ING CHRIST! I’m done. Don’t bother leaving a response. I won’t be checking it. You are dumb.

    • You know, I think you have convinced me that you don’t know what you’re talking about. Repeating the same thing over and over won’t convince me of your position.

      Moving through time would necessarily have to take into consideration the conditions of the period of time you are moving to.

      So if you are moving to the exact same place in the past you might actually be transported into a rock that was at the exact same spot as when you were traveling from. Similarly other factors like this would have to be taken into consideration, like the movement of earth.

      You speak of time travel as if you have done it, yet you have failed to convey why moving through time to a destination with differing local conditions is different from moving in the way as shown in the comic. I know gravity affects time, but I’d think the effect wouldn’t be so massive as to tie all your time travels to a certain celestial body in a vast and hurling galaxy.

      I guess the heart of the matter is this: you want me to believe that moving through time does not move one through space. But at the same time you want me to believe that moving through time *does* move one through space, following a particular location on a particular planet. So since you want to have it both ways at once, you might see why I’m confused.

      Too bad you’re not going to read my wall of text since you might better understand my position. (This is so much constructive than shouting “ur dum!!”).
