Since we’ve been getting quite a bit of email asking us questions about almost everything and anything, I figure I’d use this opportunity to introduce our new feature on yomyomf: Mailbag.
Feel free to keep sending us questions and we will try our best to get through all of them (what am I talking about? We’re just going to pick the ones that we have smart ass answers for.) Here’s the new address: email@example.com
Here we go–
“What is this site? Who are you people? At least show your faces.”
What do you mean “you people”?
We’re like the Harlem Globetrotters, except we’re yellow and can’t dunk.
Thanks DC for the above pic.
As for our faces, we’d actually prefer to use our McFly’s. Here’s the Offenders family:
Philip (the dude behind Sean Penn)
“you guys should stick to being sneaky little bastards writing about kung fu, hello kitty and complain about white people in your rice paddies like all the other gook sites.”
Thank you, Rick, for your insightful comment and for being a part of the YOMYOMF family. It sounds like you are a long-time reader and it’s great that you have obviously been keeping track of the many topics we have covered in our blog. It’s feedback like this that makes us feel like we must be doing something right!
very creative and intelligent insult…if it were 1970. we would love to, but buying up and managing all the factories that you and your trailer park relatives work for is just too much fun. what do you call those “sneaky little bastards” 20 years from now? your boss.
“Is traveling thru time real?”
Yes, time travel is possible. Like making millions of dollars while working at home and losing weight without exercising or cutting calories, it is all possible. The secret is in our offender dvd series which we’ll offer to you for $500 for a limited time only. Call now! If you order within 24 hours, we’ll send you ten tins of Spam, for free! Supplies are limited so call now!
No. Of course not. If there really is a time machine the Chinese would buy it, use it, go back in time and slowly buy up everything… Holy shit!
Yes, Jin, it is. I can discuss how according to the theory of special relativity and the workings of gravitational time dilation in the theory of general relativity (exemplified by the twin paradoxes), one might feasibly travel through time, but let me respond to your question in more lay terms for the benefit of our non-physics-oriented readers.
Current laws of physics allows for travel into the future if you just move really fast. So if you can somehow travel close to the speed of light, a few minutes might elapse for you, but years will have passed for everyone else.
Travel to the past is also technically possible through transversable wormholes according to the known laws of physics. But you can only travel as far back as when the time machine based on this principle was created. So let’s say you built a time machine of this type yesterday. This means you could only travel back to the point in time yesterday when your machine came into being. So, no, you probably won’t be able to go back and kill Hitler, stop 9/11 from happening, have sex with your high school-aged mother or advise Tiger Woods not to be such a man whore. But hey, it’s still enough time to use your knowledge of the following day’s lotto numbers and sports scores to your advantage.
