Richard, are the special crystals included with this sale, or must they be bought seperately? Also, can you accept credit cards through Paypal, at that price, I really can't pay cash.... :P

Does it go backwards AND forwards? A lot of the ones on eBay can only go backwards, is why I ask.

Hey Dylan, that link to bigfake-escrow.com isn't working. That's the place where I just sent the $20,000 to help the Nigerian Diplomat get his money into the US. Should I be worried?...

(this is all a lot of fun on April 1, but I'm gonna move it to Area 51)

Mr. Veil---

Please be advised that I have paid you in full for this technology. You will not remember the sale date, as it occurred on November 3, 1869.

In fact, since you failed to deliver, I had agents of my employ raid your compound in a lightning strike during the Stock Market Crash of 1929 (nothing covers insurgent action like a general panic) and have had the full use of the machine in the years since. I have roved the centuries, drunk the wine of empires and dallied with the great courtesans of history.

One question: HOW DO I STOP THIS THING!?

I'm headed unwillingly into the distant future, where, thank gosh, my descendants and yours have reconcoiled our ancient retail dispute. But the future ain't what it was s'posed to be, and I want to return your machine. It works too well ...

Please contact me via ultraquantum hyperspatial quarkmail as soon as is practicable. Back in the 1st century BCE, Cleopatra's claiming she's preggers and I fear her goons will catch up to me by intermarrying with your ancestors. (What a mess.)

Richard,

I am interested.

But are you willing to break up the package?

Is there a trial version of its software available for download? If so, does it only allow you to travel a maximum of 30 days into the future before purchasing the full version? Or perhaps you can only use it five times (better make sure you save that last trip to get home)?

When is v2.0 slated to be released?

They say time travel really could be possible, just not for any physical being because of the speed requirement. They say that by using "worm holes," which are theoretically small passages in the time continum, time travel can be accomplished. So think of the direction this is going in. It is possible, but we can never do it. Well I say what about the electronic information age. If nothing physical can travel through time, then what about an elctronic message. (an E-mail) I believe it is possible to send an e-mail today, back to a computer yesterday. The speed requirement is definely there. So if a terrible(preventable) tragedy happens to somone close to you, can send an e-mail back in time (to the day before) either to yourself or the person involved in the tragedy and corrective, preventive actions result in no tragedy. No Flux Capacitor needed. So the moral of this story is.....better check your freakin' emails.

I don't know about a time machine, but a machine for interdimensional travel was supposedly developed a few miles from my home in the Jersey Pine Barrens: http://www.deoxy.org/inc2.htm
