Someone should start a petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide. Why do we waste our time banning shit that's nowhere near as bad as this, while we have almost zero regulation on such a hazardous chemical?
So you need a good marketing campaign to spread your FUD. What flavors will you use?
Still it is perfectly able to transport all that iron on your blood, duh!?
It's the midi-chlorian's that allow organisms to time travel, duh!?
It doesn't have to be "John Connor" that saves the day. I am sure the humans would find another leader just as SkyNet "finds" a new creator everytime one is blown up.
Really want to mess with skynet, take away the nukes. Now how's it going to massively retaliate when it throws a tantrum?
If you have a time machine that only goes backwards, made of metal that can't be transported back with you, how are you going to relearn something from the past to go back even further? Leave yourself a sticky note somewhere to be found on the next loop?
Maybe instead of 3.8 billion years that we throw around, make the numbers more user friendly.
take 3.8, that don't sound too big and yeah billion is big but you only have 3.8 of them.
How about 3800 million years, sounds bigger intuitively, especially if your mathematically challenged?
Or shorten it to something you could related to, such as 127 million generations? hmm maybe not, that seems small again like 3.8 billion.
The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left.
