If you can’t get a real time machine, like this one from George Pal’s 1960 movie, don’t try it with your car.
Sorry, but I’ve just gotta post this news item.
This past Sunday, a 40-year-old man–old enough to know better? nah–drove his car into a tax preparers’ office and from there into a casket company’s office in a strip mall in Pensacola, Florida. He told police he was attempting to travel through time by driving his car through a “time portal” ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3373459/Man-trying-travel-time-smashes-car-two-Florida-business.html ).
Might he have consumed a bit more science fiction than was good for him? Or maybe he just missed the portal.
There is a strong suspicion that this driver might be a bit tetched, a few oars short of a trireme, but I have another theory.
I think this guy bought into the post-modern creed, energetically promoted by universities and collidges throughout the land, that reality itself is only a social construct. Reality isn’t really real. It’s only whatever you think it is.
The man’s car would tell you otherwise. Gee, talking cars would fit right into this scheme of things.
As an aside–funny, isn’t it, that businesses dealing with death and taxes were right next door to one another.
And aren’t you glad this had nothing to do with your Christmas week?
Ha, ha, that big dop is out Chrismis shoppin so now i got his blog.
Hay, Im thinkin of changing my majer becose Gender Studies its so hard, i been at it 5 yeares now and stil tryin to get my Batchler’s Degre. And then i here abuot the Universtity going to start a whole new Departmint of Zomby Studies! My prefesser he sayed we got the idea from Kent state ( http://leeduigon.com/2015/12/16/prof-seeks-funds-for-zombie-study. ).
Wuld yiu beleave it, som stopid Repulbican stodent sayed “But there no sech thing as a zomby”!! So thare istnt no point to studdy it! So now he got to go to Sensativty Traning or else git kicked out of scoohl.
Anyhow my prefesser he sayed it dont matter becose Realty is onely a Socail Construck, witch meens that zombees is reel if they is reel to yuo! He sayed we All Post moderns now and yiu cant be a interllectural if you not Post Modem. So thare istnt no reel Realty but onely whateffer yiu think is reel! Exept you not aloud to think stuf like Homo phobia or Climbit Change Denyal, that not reel at al even if yiu think it reel.
So may be I change my majer, or may be even get two degres, one for Gender Studies and one for Zomby Studies, boy wuuild I be smart then!!
