Flying Delorean

Time Circuits On…


“If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious shit.”

Cool your time circuits…. By my calculations this post should publish at the exact time that Marty McFly* arrives in Hill Valley

Yes, it’s “Back to the Future Day“.

Doc Brown may look crazy but he talks a lot of sense.

So we don’t have hoverboards and flying cars, I’m not joining the ranks of those who write about how well the film predicted what life in 2015 would be like.  The franchise was created for entertainment, not to predict the future or be scientifically accurate.  I don’t think anyone could have predicted what has gone on in the last 30 years.

By the time this publishes I will be in bed, asleep, having watched a Back to the Future marathon on ITV2. So I leave you with this:

Wherever, and whenever, you are remember that in our infinite multi-verse nothing is impossible, it just might be highly improbable.  You’ll get your hoverboard some day.

*Michael J Fox , the actor who played Marty, suffers with young onset Parkinson’s disease and started the Michael J. Fox Foundation which is “dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s”.

Please consider donating to one of the many of the local, national and international charities which raise money for research into treatments and provide support to those who live with Parkinson’s. I will be “going local” and making a donation to Parkinson’s UK, in memory of my Grandfather.
