Favorite Trivia

After months of sleuthing with my home-built super computer, I have arrived at this interesting genealogical fact: no one was born in England between September 2, 1752 and September 14, 1752. How curious! The almost fortnight that never was.

And you posted this on a remarkable day in Samoa.

Thanks for that! So no one born in Samoa on December 30, 2011 either-- another temporal anomaly. I wonder what will happen to the future time traveler with his precisely tuned machine who attempts to travel back to Samoa on this date? It reminds me of a note I made to myself that time-travel scientists need an entirely non-calendar method of measuring time, but still have to calibrate somehow with the local date/time. Oh that's right-- time IS relative!

So really time travel is space/time travel and both things must be accomplished at once because where the earth once inhabited space/time say in 1930 is quite a different PLACE on the edge of the galaxy than the earth's position now!
