Seems I can recall a time when The Rose Bowl was more important than The Superbowl...

I'll change my vote to Hendrix. He surely had years of musical exploration in front of him

I second that.  I bet he would have reshaped later music for generations.   Plus he seemed inherently less pretentious than those Liverpool guys, or Jim Morrison.

Well, having read the novel, I can see some details, plot wise that might be a problem. Ford is a Navy Lt. and get's tagged due to the confusion and desperation cause by the situation, so that I could live with.

BUT- that EMP thing...it seems there to avoid having the military give the MUTOs a beating. Even in the book, it seemed Godzilla had the strength to stand up to a typical Army throw down; the MUTOs not as much. They took out an Army ground force, but if the Marines/Navy/Air Force planes had been in on it, Godzilla would have had an easier time of it.
Oh...and you never got to see the actual army/monster fight in detail, right?

The Mutos were the weakest monsters to fight Godzilla since the giant shrimp in G v the Sea Monster. it took him mere seconds to swat the first one out of the sky and rip the big one's head clean off.
The military seemed superfluous in this movie.
Everything we've come to love and expect from a Godzilla movie was missing from this film.

THE BRAIN MACHINE (1977): Four subjects volunteer for what turns out to be a government mind control project; the protocol requires them to tell the absolute truth, no matter how painful. To tell the absolute truth, this drawn-out sci-fi drama is painful to watch. 1/5.

It was then union troops of New York's 'Fire Island brigaide' that inspired two things- Don't ask, don't tell and always point yer gun in a safe direction.

if you did go back and alter the past, you could not return to the future you came from because it would no longer exist.


Not returning to the future (any future) does not remove the paradox.

Our present timeline: Indy did not save Lincoln because Indy was not born until the 20th century.  Indy did not exist at Ford's Theater.

Altered timeline: Indy saves Lincoln at Ford's Theater (or SOMETHING to prevent that action).  But...how did Indy get there to do that? Even if it was an innocuous act far removed from the actual shooting.  Who is your Mom?  Where were you 10 years prior?  How exactly did you just "pop up," and does no one even ask, "Hey, who's this guy?"

Once you change the timeline, the future also changes.  It is POSSIBLE in this scenario that the future does not change in a way that precludes you from going back or even existing.  But, that's not deterministic.  The problem is, what if the act of "saving Lincoln" means Indy was never born? Since Indy saved Lincoln, and now "space-time" has been altered in such a way that Indy never existed, who saved Lincoln to create the situation that Indy was never born?

The problem is not you returning to the future. It's a real paradox; it can't be solved.  The problem is the overlap of two timelines by you (someone from the future in our timeline) preventing something in the past.  The overlap is the problem.

With that out of the way, I'd be very careful about risking those unintended consequences.  What if by saving Caesar, his continued life led to mass extinction, such as pandemic during the Middle Ages or nuclear war in 1955?  Would that be worth it?  That's the problem with the Butterfly Effect; you just don't know.

But hey...no "right" answer. That's what distinguishes science from philosophy.  The latter is far happier with speculation.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
