Time travel time — 10 Comments

  1. 2001 if you want the start of the millennium. 2000 was the end of the last millennium. 😉


  2. Hands off Nigel Farage.   If Lenin is credited with having the greatest impact on European politics in the 20th century, then Farage probably qualifies for that title in the 21st century.   One for good, one for ill – you decide which.

    • I have a great respect for Farage.  He's an excellent speaker and [of course] enjoys his pint and a fag.  I was disappointed though when he effectively abandoned his libertarian fight and buggered off to America.

  3. A fanciful theory, but the problem is the time travel paradox. If you could go back in time, knowing what you know now, in an attempt to change the future, who would believe you? It’s like the tale of a returning time traveller stating that he had killed Hitler to prevent him coming to power, only for people to say, "Who?" 


    • There is a short story about a time traveler who goes back to kill Hitler. He is immediately arrested by the Gestapo and taken to a room full of time travelers all of whom came back in time to kill Hitler. Hilter comes out and talks to them “I am surprised at the thing you have said that I will do in the future. I want to assure you that I would never do those things." One time traveler had managed to hide a weapon which he used to kill Hitler. He is quickly subdued and all of the Germans look at each other. What do we do now? We will have to use his double”. His double, we can’t use him. He is crazy.

      • The greatest argument against time travelling is that if it were possible, we'd have loads of tourists from the future.  Or maybe we're just too boring to bother visiting?

  4. Way I see it, Ahern and Cowen had nothing to do with the banking failure. They were consumed by forces entirely outside of their control. Neither understood or understand economics, but even if they had they would have not been able to do anything about it. A FG (or Labour, or SF) leader in charge would have made no difference.
