Stop telling BS
the actual olympic quote has ben posted many times, he makes no distinction between the summer and winter games. what will your excuse be when the
2008 games get here ?
wrong again about 2005. titor goes out of his way twice to set the record straight that the civil war starts in 2004.
the only BS is travelling through time in a corvette with two black holes that weigh 500 lbs, and are contained in your average everyday container.
An amusing computation: Suppose r_s = 1 fm (somewhat smaller than "an

But do be careful if you start offering too many specifics. Not only might someone steal your plans and build a time machine decades too soon, but you
might even slip up and end up with egg on your face. Just look at John Titor, who completely forgot to read up on Hawking radiation. His
two-black-hole time machine was supposed to weigh 500 pounds. But even assuming that each of the black holes weighed 100 kg (220 lbs) - leaving only
60 lbs for the rest of the device - both of those puppies would have had to have been radiating energy at about 3 x 10e29 Watts (the equivalent of
over a thousand suns), at a temperature of 1.2 x 10e21 Kelvin (twelve orders of magnitude more than the core of a supernova). And their lifetime would
have been just eight trillionths of a second.
which is BS ?
