the Back to the Future movies aren't time travel stories, they're the history of a town clock that has seen some serious shit

on follow requests πŸ“Œ 

I generally won't accept follow requests from:
* completely new accounts that haven't posted yet
* accounts that predominantly post about tech, software development
* accounts that are predominantly negative either in general or specifically about things I post about a lot
* accounts that post a lot of sexual stuff

obviously this is in addition to not accepting follow requests from nazis, bigots, etc

I feel like "kill Sarah Connor to prevent the birth of her resistance leader son" should be a, like, pretty precise cut into the timeline and not the absolute butchering the killer robot makes of it here.

All those cops he kills -- good, etc -- who knows whose dads they all are!

Something very John Titor about Kyle Reese.

Or something very Kyle Reese about John Titor, I guess.

this film's present day is already aesthetically pretty dark future-y, like if I teleported into Tech-Noir I'd assume everyone there had some kind of brain implant

I feel like if an Alex Lou Daily and an Alex Joey Daily had been killed in my town in the same day, I would just extremely get outta town.

I'm too polite, I'd never rip a page out of a phone book meant for general use. Inevitably this is what would get me killed in one of these stories.

"Here lies Alex, wrote down the phone numbers but couldn't read their own handwriting."

Gangs of punks, a real thing? No way to know.

Did gangs of punks actually ever look like that? Hanging out near observatories for no discernible reasons?
