What's today, you ask?
Yeah, yeah... historic election yesterday and all that. Beginning of the end of Bush. The dawn of a new era. Yes we can. Blah, blah, blah...
But let's not forget what makes today really special, a red letter date in the history of science!
It was on this day, in 1955, that Doc Brown invented time travel!
"I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet, hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the edge of the sink and, when I came to, I had a revelation.
A picture in my head.
A picture of this.
This is what makes time travel possible. The flux capacitor."
(Oh, and the election was really cool, too.)
