Building a Time Machine
 
This is my next project. Anyone know what a flux capacitor is and where I can purchase one?

I'd rather not contact the Iranians.

Be careful you get the polarity correct. If not you will only be able to go one direction. That’s what happened to me. I wired mine wrong and went into the future 57 years before I knew what happened. I wish I would have stopped around 1965, things were much more simple then. If you get yours working let me know you can drop me off on your way thru.

So that's why you like those old houses, they really are just like home.
Your capaciter should have been 3 phase, easy to reverse:beer:

If by chance you get that thing operational, I wish you would look me up in 1973 and kick the crap outta me for not finishing college...

gee, I hope you can get it working and can send me back to 1776 , you remember,, fought a war over taxes without representation, as you can see it didn't work, we still get taxed, but now we have incompetent representation. send me back and maybe I can get it right

Will do! I plan on handing out butt kicking as I see fit.

First stop is my house when I decided to start smoking.

Anyone else need me to lay the hurt on them?

Yeah, stop by Graceland and tell Elvis that those bananna and p-nutbutter sandwiches are killer...:D

Yeah - stop by my house about 1965 and tell me to never smoke, finish school, learn to fly (while it was affordable), and NEVER throw away ANYTHING ... (Y'all seen the prices that all kinds of junk brings at the antique stores?) ... Hot Wheels cars going for $10 - $15, those old brass fire extinguishers go for $100+, table top fans going for $25 - $350+, etc. OH, tell me to buy a 1970 GTO Judge (my all-time favorite car). Thanks ... see you in 1965! :banana:
