We've Made It

October 21, 2015..... What???? You don't know what today is?????

Does the name Marty McFly ring a bell????

Maybe 'Doc' Emmet Brown????

Does it maybe reving up your Delorean to say 88 miles per hour and energizing your Flux Capacitor ring a bell?????

Ah yes,,, i see a glimmer of light sparking in your eyes....

Today is the day that Marty McFly returns back to the future.


AND if you are an Amazon Prime Member you can binge out on all three (yes there are three) "Back To The Future" movies, for free.

And now for some trivia (also known as useless information that only nerds know or care about.)

How much power did the flux capacitor need?

In order to travel through time, the vehicle integrated with the flux capacitor needed to be traveling at 88 mph (140.8 km/h), and required 1.21 gigawatts of power (1,210,000,000 watts), originally supplied by a plutonium-powered nuclear reactor.

What does the Delorean run on in Back to the Future?

The Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor is the name of a power source used by the DeLorean time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy. It can be seen at the end of Back to the Future when "Doc" Emmett Brown pulls into the McFlys' driveway after a trip to the year 2015.

What day did Doc Brown invent the flux capacitor?

On November 5, 1955, Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown hit his head on the side of a bathroom sink. As his headache faded, an image appeared, an idea that would finally make time travel possible: the flux capacitor.
Special Note:::: the last answer may be one of the only references to "Doc" Brown's middle name.
So, now that we've arrived at the future, I'm going to go get another cup of coffee, and plug my flux capacitor into my Mr. Fusion organically powered nuclear reactor, and gourmet coffee maker, for a recharge.
Have a great day, Grenville

Although light fare, it was also a powerful movie in its own way for us to bring it up like this. It was fun then and is fun now.

No flying DeLoreans yet though, and God help us if the Cubs win the Series!

I've been reviewing the trilogy over in my writers blog given the occasion.

It was a big thing over here :-) There was even a warrant for a car that drove around 88 mph when it suddely disappeared in a flash on the Police facebook page :-)

Have a great day!
