But that's in the teeny-tiny quantum physics world, where nothing makes sense. wink.gif Let's see an atomic clock test at the Bonneville Salt Flats* with that 1000 mph car they're working on (the Bloodhound SSC). Three engines, including a jet and a rocket - seriously! eek.gif

edit: It will actually be at the Hakskeen Pan Desert in South Africa which should allow them the 10 miles of flat surface they need to complete a record attempt.

You know I like cars and I like speed....
But I would never EVER contemplate doing such a thing.eek.gif
One tiny, itty-bitty thing isn't right and your a$$ is a goner.

Yeah, I hear ya'. I too have a need for speed which has almost got me killed on more than one occasion, but whoever drives that thing is crazy. If he wrecks it at that speed, they wouldn't be able to find enough pieces of him to fill a cigar box for his next of kin.

For some reason, I am never afraid when on wheels.
OTOH, Ms. Oink is.

Today, on the way to town, I gave her a demonstration of Darth's speed from 10 to 110.
As you might imagine, this generated a torrent of salty language directed at me from the passenger seat.

However, I was wearing my favorite t-shirt: Like I always say, "...................and that's the way it's gonna be."
She should have saw it comin'......biggrin.gif

She might not have saw it coming, but she should have seen it coming. That might have been why she didn't. biggrin.gif

Yeah, Time Travel is possible, but generating the POWER to do it is well beyond our capabilities.

Also, the more I think about it, the more I think it would be too damn dangerous to the future of humanity.
Of course, IMHO.wink.gif


Me too!biggrin.gif

But if you could go back in time to when you were a kid you would love it again. biggrin.gif

Ah, but Lizzy didn't do it, according to Bill James' book Popular Crime. On base percentage wasn't high enough or something....

yes, I've been reduced to making obscure baseball jokes. Man, I miss this show

Finally caught up on last 3-4 episodes include season finale which was tremendous. Lots of cliffhangers and looking forward to how it pieces together in season 3. One question...do we know where the Freelancer prison is (ie in 2013 timeline, 2077, far future or some time abyss?)

That is a good question...
post #353 of 467
We haven't been given any indication that the freelancers can travel through time at will, so I'm inclined to say that it's in the 2013 timeline, since that's where Kiera is.
post #354 of 467
That prison was surely an unexpected twist. I wonder where they are going with it? I am eagerly waiting to find out! biggrin.gif

As for the rest of us, I'm pretty sure we're moving inexorably forward in time, albeit at the normal rate. wink.gif

True about most of us but it's been known for a century that you can travel forward in time via relativistic effects. Travel at an appreciable fraction of the speed of light and your time slows down. You can return to where you started quite a bit in the future. It's high school math. Minor problem being the ability to travel that fast.

I brought up that very point on the previous page. wink.gif

Gotta say, I just discovered this show on Netflix and my wife and I ended up binge-watching this week-end. We're completely hooked. When does season 3 start?
post #358 of 467
THey haven't announce an exact date yet. But Spring 2014 is the word.
post #359 of 467
I just binged watched this second season on Netflix. That finale was pretty intense. I wish there weren't so many filler episodes with junk cop show material. But that last couple shows and finale just made up for most of the wasted time.

Prison has to be in 2013, they were looking through Elena's eyes and saw the Freelancer through the glass case.
