Remember, remember, the 5th of November

No he parat de llegir avui per la xarxa que calia recordar, recordar, el cinc de Novembre, doncs és la data en la que el Guy Fawkes va intentar cremar el parlament anglès, allà per l'any 1605, i en ell es va inspirar el protagonista de V de Vendetta (còmic de l'Alan Moore i posterior adaptació cinematogràfica).
Però és que el 5 de Novembre va passar una altra cosa, més important si se'm permet. Va passar això...

"First, you turn the time circuits on. This one tells you where you're going. This one tells you where you are. This one tells you where you were. You input your destination time on this keypad. Say you want to see the signing of the Declaration of Independence [Jul. 4, 1776] or witness the birth of Christ [Dec. 25, 0000]. Here's a red-letter date in the history of science: November 5, 1955. Yes! Of course! November 5, 1955! That was the day I invented time-travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation! A vision! A picture in my head! A picture of this! This is what makes time travel possible: the flux capacitor! It's taken me nearly thirty years and my entire family fortune to realize the vision of that day. My God, has it been that long? Things have certainly changed around here. I remember when this was all farmland as far as the eye could see! Old man Peabody owned all of this! He had this crazy idea about breeding pine trees."
