Telegraph: An Iranian businessman claims to have mastered time with a machine that allows users to fast forward up to eight years into the future.
It's not a time machine it's just something which predicts the future. There's a woman on Blackpool prom who does this with a crystal ball.
At least he’s been working on it for more than 8 years, so he can start testing predictions. I wonder how much he’s made playing the stock market. 98% accurate prediction would be way better than the average punter.
How about some lottery numbers ? :P
Hmmm now if I ignore my urge to laugh at it and look at it from the perspective of someone with and interest (About to continue studying physics) and logically I'd love to know how he claims it works. Also just abit of logical thinking-if everyone can 'know' their future, and he reckons governments could prepare-despite all other evidence pointing towards if you knew what was going to happen anything you did to prevent it being more likely to just cause it. Well then that's not very useful to ganyone-hoe msny proplr eould be driven mad by knowledge of the inevitable events approaching they can't change and infact I do believe the quantum entanglement "could you prevent yourself from existing" experiment would say that nothing you do could change the future because then you'd be changing the past that caused you to act in the 1st place... So even if it worked It'd be useless. Anyway I might be thinking abut this abit too deeply.
You said "I might be thinking abut this a bit too deeply." I say the word "might" has no need to be in that sentence.
Sure, and I hereby claim that I have invented the eternal life elixir. Try to top that!
I claim to be able to bring the dead back to life and make them attractive. Take that !
You two need to combine those two inventions, and THEN we have a winner.
Misleading title indeed. Typical on here and N4G but that's how it is. It's made to attract us to reading it. It's like this everywhere. One day we'll see "Bill Gates murdered.." then continue to read "..murdered the record for blah blah blah" you get the point.
I hope you realize this is not due to N4G or TechSpy, because these titles are exactly the same as in the original article. So, if you're gonna blame someone... Might as well point it in the right direction. Oh, and I agree with you, by the way. It's just - wrong target.
