Sci-Fi

Will time travel be possible in the next 100 years?

Are there parallel universes? If so, what do you think you are doing right now in the "other" life?

Who/what are responsible for crop circles?

Is John Edward (not Edwards - oops) legit or a crack pot?

No time travel in the next 100 years, although speed of space travel will increase.

If there are parallel universes, then in theory I could be doing anything. I'd like to think that "alter-Higgy" is having a three-way with Jessica Alba and Eva Langoria while celebrating his MegaMillions jackpot winnings.... What? Ok, so probably he's doing the exact same thing as I am but left-handedly. There - are you happy, you party-poopers?

Crop circles are made by two fellas with a piece of plywood and a string. It's been such a good joke that they've gotten friends in other countries to take up the hobby.

Who? *after a quick google*
Oh. That guy. Legit. Have you heard of any other frontrunners?

Awesome! Questions where I get to be a jackass! (Well, I don't get to be one, but I'm going for it anyway...)

1) No.

2) No.

3) Silly persons.

4) Crack pot.

You're welcome! ;)

*runs away*

Never. And I can say that with the air of certainty only a liberal arts BA can provide.
Probably not, but if there is can I live in anti-Higgy land?
Bored guys, they've even confessed but the believers don't want to beleive them. Isn't that odd?
There is a difference between a scam artist and a crackpot. That Edwards guy is making a ton of loot from the gullible.

I think it's possible now, we just don't know how to access it. Is access possible in the next 100 years. Anything's possible *looks around for Laynie* it's even possible that Trump could get a flattering haircut at some point before his death.

Why shouldn't there be? I've got George Clooney, and this is a family blog, so I can't tell you what we're doing.

The Shriners. It's what they do for entertainment after a night out drinking.

What Jamester said. Scam artist. Maybe a crackpot, too. A lot of that stuff is visual cues and subtle detection. One of my foster sisters went to a medium to find out the gender of her unborn child. The medium gave her a message from her dead aunt that the baby would be a boy and that she'd seen the baby before its birth. You should see my niece.. a wee cutie and not the least bit masculine.

btw.. I know a John Edwards and he may be a crackpot, but he's not making any money out of it!

(oh and the niece mentioned here is not the one I posted about on my blog, for those that follow these things..)

1. Sure it will still be available.

What?

2. There are no parallel universes; just rhombus ones.

3. Crop circles are caused by sharp spherical thingies.

4. John Edward is a man from a rhombus universe. The letters I have to type in to prove I'm not a robot, sugxlygu, is from the language of that universe and it means "crackpot

1. Time Tavel -- Yes, but it will only be supported on the Apple application software. What, do you really want to trust windows with your time travel needs.

B. Alternate Universes -- I think there are parallel, tangental and perpendicular universes. I don't know what I'm doing in the other universes, but I can safely say that you, unfortunately, got the evil version of me in this universe.

III. Crop Circles -- Bored guys with stick and strings. Get over it.

$. John Edward -- Crack pot. My dead aunt Josie told me so.

Time Travel must be discovered simultaneously across all time, so no. However, you will be able to travel into the future at the rate of one second per second.

No alternate universes, at least none that we can possibly be aware of .

Crop circles are man-made.

Who?

disappointing answers from a sci-fi fan, huh?

Time Travel - No. Except in the individual mind, as memory.

Parallel Universes - In a couple of them, I'd probably be dead. In at least one, I'd be a mother. In another, I'd never have found the courage to be an actor and I'd still be slogging away as a civil servant. Then, there's the universe where I'm famous...

Crop Circles - Some of them are obviously made by people, as people have admitted to them. Some are made by the wind or storms. I've seen that kind of thing in fields before. And some... some I just don't know about.

John Edwards - Fraud. In the worst way. He uses all the tricks, reads his audiences well and plays them.
I'm not saying that I don't think what he claims to do is possible, only that I have a hard time believing in anybody who does it for money.

Time travel? Yes, very possibly.

Parallel universes? Only in science fiction.

Crop circles? College students.

John Edward? Total charlatan.

1. Yes. Time doesn't really exist. More on that later.

2. Yes. String theory suggests this. But I believe it.

3. Don't really care. Doesn't it kill the crop? That annoys me.

4. I think he has legit ability to communicate with those who have crossed over - I think we all do. He may also be a scam artist on top of it. But he seems to bring comfort to those who need it - so good for him.

in an alternate universe this post would be funny

In an alternate universe, Tamara and I would be Laverne and Shirley and Boo and cbol would be Lenny and Squiggy. You guys can fight over who is who. I get to be Laverne because it's my parallel universe!

Don't call me "Shirley".

;)

Ha! Nicely executed.

 
At 12:01 PM , Blogger Higgy said...

Whoa - my google search for John Edwards turned up the ex-VP candidate for Kelly! No wonder I'm reading all this stuff about charlatans!

Thanks for the correction, Punky!

Dude, I'd been wondering what the hell you meant by "frontrunners"! *un-wonks face!* ;)

I believe that if we achieve the ability to travel faster than the speed of light then we could travel to a place in space where we could view the past because we traveled faster than the light/sound, but I don't think we will ever be able to interact in past or future times. Something about disrupting entropy.

No parallel universe just Bizarro world

Drunk college students

Scam artist

1. We do actually time travel in a fashion now. When you look at the night sky, some of the faintest points of light that you see was generated from a star as long as 10 billion years ago. That particular star could be no longer in existance in the most common sense of the term...in that it's mass and energy are no longer in the form that you would see as a star. So in a sense, we are seeing something that happened even before the earth was formed. Time travel. We can't affect it, but we are physically seeing into the past.

Future time travel? It stands to reason that if we can view the past that with the right lens or viewing device, we could possibly see the future. We already affect the future just by even the smallest things we do everyday. But if viewable, we could affect the future in a more planned way.
And I'll shut up on that now.

2. Yes, as Punky said, the various string theories suggest this possibility, but at this point, all string theories are strictly mathamatical and haven't been proven to be physical theories as yet. I don't know about parallel universes, but I've always considered that it's very possible that what we consider our universe could just be a mote in an eye of a being in another "universe".....and so on and so on.

If we are eventually able to "travel" to the past and affect changes, the first thing I wanna do is talk myself out of that ivory colored tux I wore to prom.

3. Sticks and strings for the most part. Originally it was microbursts flattening crops and vegetation in patterns until it became a game.

4. I agree on the comfort part....it seems as if that's what those folks need.

But, at the end of the day, he's scamming.
