The Future is the Past is the Future

Time travel is a bitch. There, I said it. Everyone's curious about it, everyone wonders why they aren't doing it all the time, and everyone's got an opinion about it. But yeah, time travel is a bitch.

Let me give you another example. The other day I felt like stopping by the Salem Witch Trials, and so that's exactly what I did. I barely escaped with my life. They really were suspicious little bastards back then.

And that's not the half of it. I could go on and on. You just never think about the details, so let me repeat it again: Time travel is a bitch. It's just not what you think. I wish I could say otherwise, I really do.

And I'm not just bitter from a lot of bad experiences, let me tell you. It's just, once you actually experience it, time travel loses its glamour, and that's what most people are thinking about, the glamour. It's an illusion. There is no glamour. You might even think it's cool, and it just isn't.

It sucks. Yeah, it's a bitch. You end up realizing, if you're really lucky, that any other time than the one you actually come from...really isn't any different. Think of it like growing older. Everyone experiences life differently at different ages. It's natural. It's okay. You form opinions you never thought you would, the more you change, the more things change around you. That's like time travel right there.

Understand? So try putting that in the context of the reality of time travel. You think it'll be so much fun. It's certainly possible to have fun, but then you realize, you can't make a living like that, and once you figure that out, you really don't find it so interesting.

I mean, you can make a living through time travel, but trust me, it ends up like any other job. So, I reiterate, time travel is a bitch.
