All I need to know are the winning lotto numbers that will be drawn tonight, so tomorrow's newspaper would be plenty.
And I only need to use it once. :)
OK... OK.... when I get my time machine completed I'll let you use it. Once! :-)
Wait, someone said that one already...
Great show, great writing (some of the time)...
Going Home part1 was the best episode for me
My question is... Could someone with Dr. Brown's brains not have wipped up some basic gasoline in a week given access to 1885 oil?
It doens't have to be pretty, it just has to work for 5 minutes...
1. It can only be tried once, and if it doesn't work, you're screwed.
2. Taking a large expensive object like a locomotive and removing it from the timeline would affect a LOT. For all of Doc Brown's "don't change time" comments, this rather broke that in a large way.
Finally, the movie missed the simple obvious solution. If they know what is going to happen, why stay in Hill Valley? They had horses, ride somewhere else for a month, give some time to pass, let Mad Dog Tannen go off to do something else, then come back and solve the gas problem.
But, that doesn't make for as good a movie. :)
2. By being stuck in 1885 for weeks, Doc Brown already broke the rule in a big way
3. Thinking about time travel makes my head hurt
Yea, time-travel opens up so many issues, it really is just fantasy, because the world as we know it doesn't work otherwise.
but I digress ;)
Leonard: Girls like Penny never end up with guys who own time machines.
Sheldon: I disagree. Your inability to successfully woo Penny long predates your acquisition of the time machine. That failure clearly stands on its own.
Leonard: Thanks for pointing it out.
Sheldon: In addition, your premise is flawed. In the original film, Rod Taylor got Yvette Mimieux with that very time machine. In Back to the Future, Marty McFly got the opportunity to hook up with his extremely attractive young mother.
Leonard: Those are movies.
Sheldon: Of course they're movies. Were you expecting me to come up with an example involving a real-life time machine? That's absurd
Might not rise again until after Chrsitmas. :(
I think people are starting to list their "Christmas" inventory, and so the market is getting more inventory for sale which depresses prices.
Plus, people are now spending on family and kids for the holidays, so I think that depresses the prices of retired sets.
It will go back up. :)
I imagine, in addition to what LFT has said, the really excellent recent sales, especially on big sets, at TRU/Walmart/Amazon/etc., has absorbed some of the budget that people would otherwise have to spend on retired sets.
Not my personal opinion, but something to consider.
Number of people willing to pay Z x RRP for set Y.
Number of people buying set Y to resell.
Once those numbers don't work the game's up. I'm not sure there's really a bubble to burst but if thats what you want to call it fine. Having said that 10210 is still selling at almost 2xRRP and was available on discount so still not a bad investment. If i had any, I'd be more worried about how many FB are sitting MISB.
I find human behavior so interesting... and I'm just as guilty of it of course, so I can laugh at myself in the process.
Yes, my aunt would drive all over town looking for the best prices on things and waste so much time and gas. In the end, she would find a great price, but have gained nothing.
If the X-Wing were made and never made again it would be different, but LEGO always has a X-Wing. And, the newer one is most always better, so it really hurts demand for previous ones. Now, a UCS X-Wing would be different. But, I think they've made one of those already haven't they?
