I guess now they will have to change the title to "Back to the Past". Not quite as catchy.

He also travelled to 2015 in one of the movies, so it proves the Mayan calendar stuff was wrong...

Hey, did you know that today is the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown were fictional characters and time travel does not exist and shut up?

No Mr Fusion either. That would be handy.
I remember seeing that when it came out, and thinking WOW the future is AWESOME, and now here I am, 2012, and it's just the same.

Oh wait, it's a photoshopped HOAX?! Dammnit, three more years.

I heard a Seth Sentry song complaining about just that very thing on the radio the other day. Quite funny.

I don't tend to like Aussie hip-hop, but Seth Sentry is actually quite good.

Sure, I loved those movies. I remember seeing the first one when it came out. I was just quoting the "bah humbug"-style message from that site... :jumping:

There are already three movies. Do you mean a fourth?

LENR technology is pretty close to a Mr Fusion. Probably as close as we can realistically get. Still going to be a while before it's mature enough for mass production though.
