I got one for you that IS related to time travel:
You know how the first thing that always comes out of one's mouth when talking about time travel is "I'll go back to yesterday and play the lottery because I already know the wining numbers"?
This is a TRUE STORY, honestly!
Well, check this out.
Last Friday, the wife and I went over to my mom's house for coffee and we got on the topic of 9/11. The wife said something like: "I'll bet the numbers 9-1-1 will show up on the lottery sometime soon"
Mom says: "I wouldn't be surprised if it happened on 9/11"
I added: "It'd be funny if it happened in NYC"
Ofcourse we didn't really BELIEVE it, since we were just musing, so we wouldn't have thought to play it.
But then we heard on the news that on 9/11, the NYC lottery wining numbers were indeed 9-1-1
For a minute there I thought, maybe I traveled through TIME and told me the numbers, then I remembered, Oh, yeah, I'm still POOR! damm those paradoxes!!!
P.S. Ok, so the end was a joke, but the conversation DID take place as described here, and 9-1-1 WERE INDEED the wining numbers in NYC on 9/11!
