    This is the stunning Calvin & Hobbes time-traveling dinosaur scene that artist and mother Laura Hartrich of Etsy store Tiny Scissor Times embroidered for her son's birthday. It is most impressive. You know, when I was in middle school my mom embroidered my initials into the b... / Continue →

    This is a t-shirt printed with Marty McFly's iconic look from Back to the Future (available on Amazon for ~$30). Which, for the record, is a maroon t-shirt, blue plaid button-up, bi-color jean jacket, and red vest. Marty was into LAYERING. Me? I'm into wearing as little as ... / Continue →

    A live action musical of Back to the Future is coming to London's West End next year, with a possible Broadway run if it proves successful enough. AND HOW COULD IT NOT? You think there's going to have a real DeLorean on stage or just a cardboard cutout? The film's original... / Continue →

    Time Machine Restoration, a group dedicated to bringing Back to the Future's film-used Time Traveling DeLorean "A" car (the primary one used in the movie) to its former glory, has completed their restoration. And, from the looks of the thing, I think it might actually be able ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. This is a TARDIS DeLorean (TarDeLorean) Photoshopped together by artist Pacta for a DeLorean themed photo-manipulation contest. If it were real, I would totally drive it. But since it's not, I'm limited to sitting on the couch IMAGINING I'm driving... / Continue →

    Seen here about to back over a Ferrari after already cursing and shaking his fist at the driver, an ornery older gentlemen shows off his monster truck DeLorean. I'm not sure if it's even possible to get the thing up to 88MPH, but one thing's for certain: where it's going, it d... / Continue →

    This is a flux capacitor chest tattoo. I'm not sure how brobro plans on getting up to 88MPH, but if it involves a vehicle I probably would have made that the time machine instead of my body. This seems dangerous. What happens if you fall asleep on an airplane and wake up in ... / Continue →

    This is a video that appeared on Youtube yesterday featuring a time-traveling DeLorean and the real Doc Brown. I'm pretty sure it's a commercial for Gabarino, the Argentinian electronics store the good doc crashes into. But who knows, maybe it's something else -- LIKE A TEASE... / Continue →

    According to a recent study (OR POSSIBLE GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY), time travel is effectively impossible as a result of photons being unable to travel faster than light. But what about photons shot out of a cannon? "You're an idiot." Am I? *staring into laser beam* By prov... / Continue →

    China, in an attempt to curb inaccurate portrayals of the country's past, has created a list of guidelines for television programs that discourage the use of time-travel in plots. So yeah, no more going back and changing history. The Great Wall was originally built as a tape-m... / Continue →

    I've seen an Alabama Craigslist version of this ad floating around the past couple days that's word-for-word the exact same, but this one was posted a month ago (complete with convincing looking picture of LEGO Mindstorm time machine component), so it's obviously the real one (... / Continue →

    Note: a couple more shots and a short video of the cake's special effects after the jump. That's right -- a cake with special effects. "On Saturday, November 5, 1955, Doc came up with the idea of the flux capacitor (which is what makes time travel possible) after slipping off... / Continue →

    See? Because I turned the DeLorean into a monster truck! Apparently, We Do Need Roads In The Future [thatwillbuffout/failblog] Thanks to Greg, who once went to a monster truck rally but left crying during Carzilla's performance. Don't worry Greg, I'd have done the exact sam... / Continue →

    Allegedly a guy was watching Charlie Chaplin's 1928 silent film 'The Circus' and spotted a woman in a scene walking by talking on a cell phone. I watched the footage myself, and I'm skeptical to say the least. Guy is a crazy conspiracy-theorist to say a little more. Guy shou... / Continue →

    Note: Videos are after the jump. Use those little arms of yours and push the button. I happen to know how t-rex's walk (bow-legged) because I've traveled back in time and had sex with dozens thousands of them, but this is a pretty accurate representation. They also like to w... / Continue →

    My God what a sexy looking dino. He's so horny he's making me horny. Kidding, I get that way with any dino, but still, you know what I mean (I mean I'm rockin' some serious petrified wood right now). The creature lived 76 million years ago in the warm, wet swamps of what is ... / Continue →

    According to 'Lisa's Wedding', the 19th episode of The Simpson's sixth season (originally aired 15 years ago on March 19th, 1995), Lisa got married today. Granted it was just a fortune-telling daydream, but I still thought it was worth mentioning. It really got me thinking, y... / Continue →

    Due to a crappy Photoshop job of the DeLorean's time circuits (above), there's an internet rumor going around that in Back to the Future II Marty travels into the future to July 5th, 2010 (yesterday). WELL IT ISN'T TRUE. In reality, Marty travels to October 21, 2015. Which i... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is a letter received by the Institute of Physics that was written by a youngster concerned about the Large Hadron Collider. And I'd almost believe it too if the handwriting and drawing weren't so perfect. But what really tipped me off was the intentional misspe... / Continue →
