Oh it just gets
worse. I really sincerely hope that this is performance art. If it's not, my crystal ball shows a lawsuit.

As if the national Jesse notoriety wasn't enough... Oh the
shame. I'm channeling a combination of the voices of Andrew from Buffy and Mark Borchardt from American Movie as I read his homepage. I wonder how he pronounces the word coven.

Although Benno proposed the concept as a way to (sorta) disprove the existence of time travel, someone has actually set it up.
Email to the future. Is it just a web gimmick or does it have quantum physics applications?

(It's not easy to explain schrodinger's cat to someone who's under the influence. Just try it.)

On a semi-related thought... This weekend we were watching a history channel forensic reconstruction of the Hitler bomb plot. The conclusion was that by placing the briefcase on one side of the table leg, Hitler lived where he would have died. There was also an unused second charge that would have made the blast fatal. Several people and events stood out to me as important pivot points. (I always liked the Pratchett description of 'shooting off down a different trouser leg of history' to describe the notion of infinite universes branching from infinite variables.) It occured to me that if time travel had been discovered at any point, there would likely be an infinite tug of war over such people/places/events. What if that's what's wrong with the world?

(This is how you end up with dozens of half-formed novel ideas.)
