Happy November 5th!

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 vision.

A picture in my head.

A picture of this.

This is what makes time travel possible. The flux capacitor."

Freakin' sweet.

(Oh, and the election was really cool, too.)
