Back To The Future 2 Shouldn’t Have Happened

Those of you who like to pick apart movies and over-analyze things already know that the Back To The Future series is full of plot holes and paradoxes. I did a very short search to find a list of what is most likely just some of those, and I haven’t seen the one I noticed yet, so I’m going to mention it here.

A list I really liked that keyed me in to some of those plot holes and paradoxes is on Den Of Geek, check it out.

Marty, Doc and company travel to October 21, 2015 in BTTF2, and that date happened a week ago, so naturally it was BTTF Day all over the net. That made me think how I hadn’t watched them in a while, and I was about due, so I got my trilogy out and watched the first movie. Tonight I decided to watch the second movie, and for the first time ever, I noticed something that stuck out so terribly that I can’t believe after all this time I just figured it out. I also know that out there somewhere, someone probably already figured this out a long time ago. In any case, here it is.

In the series, Doc constantly says how they shouldn’t mess with anything, they should just study the past and future. Otherwise, just let it ride. Of course they completely blow this in the very first movie, and that has been pointed out many times already.

I like how just as they end the conflict in the first one, just a minute later, Doc returns from 2015 to tell Jennifer and Marty they have to go with him to the future to save their kids from making a mistake.

That’s the plot for BTTF2. To go into the future and completely change the course of natural history. So much for don’t touch anything, take only pictures.

Me, Interrupted

There’s nothing quite like not being heard. And a great way to tell someone you’re not listening to them, or that you have no care as to what they’ve got to say, is to interrupt them while they’re speaking, and not be polite enough to say something to the effect of “I’m sorry, you were saying?”

Every parent tries to teach their kids not to interrupt, or at least they should. That’s the parents’ way of saying they don’t care what the kids have to say, but to be honest, no parent really cares what nonsense their kids have to say. The lucky thing is, it’s also a good way to teach them not to interrupt, because interrupting someone is rude.

I know a lot of people who love to talk, for whatever reason. I can only guess that they love to talk because they don’t get much of a chance to talk otherwise. Whether they have nobody to talk to, or they have tons of people in their lives who don’t care what they have to say, I don’t know. My dad is one of them, and I know that he just loves to talk, but he also has nobody to talk to.

It’s actually my dad’s life force. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been hanging out with him and he’s been talking away. And then one guy shows up he doesn’t really care for, so he stops talking, and he literally falls asleep minutes after not talking.

My Pot Prediction

I’m no Sylvia Browne (thankfully), Miss Cleo (whew), or even Professor Marvel, but I am awesome and can totally see the future.

After Ohio legalizes marijuana next week, I think even more states are going to follow. They’ve been picking up over the last few years, but more-so since Colorado did it.

My prediction:

By the year 2021 the entire country will have legalized marijuana in one form or another at a state level. I originally thought by 2020, but gave it an extra year for insurance.

By then or shortly thereafter, the federal government will recognize this as a sign (finally) and legalize marijuana on a federal level, ending the fed’s raids on legal dispensaries in California and all over the rest of California. And everywhere else, too.

Crime will go down, underage use will go down, tax revenue will go up, and the country will rebound from the shitty hole it has been in for the last decade and a half. This will seemingly be the answer to all of the country’s financial problems, the recession will be over, and a ton of pot supporters around the world will say, “We told you so.” Because for the longest time, they’ve all been saying “If we legalized weed, the country’s deficit would be gone in days.”

These are my predictions. Where’s my TV show?

Great Commercials: Denny’s Sausagefest

Never mind the implications of a sausagefest, I saw this commercial earlier today for the first time and thought it was pretty awesome just from the use of chloroform. As I Youtube’d this I discovered it’s just one in a long series of commercials. I haven’t viewed any others.
