You're thinking in Newtonian terms, 500. It's actually way worse than that.

The only fixed constant (that's relevant) is the speed of light. Not to be confused with the speed of time, which is far from constant. That's the very essence of relativity. So no matter how fast the Earth is moving, or in "which direction", we can't drift from it (given your static assumption) any further than light would have done in the same duration. But time is flexible, and there is no fixed frame of reference, which leads to a great amount of incoherence when thinking these things through too hard!

Here's a faster way to travel forward in time: accelerate close to the speed of light. With sufficiently ideal propulsion, you can actually travel many times faster than the speed of light, because time dilates in your reference frame. Photons are all essentially zero aged, even the ones fresh from millions of years of travel from other galaxies. We can't achieve the same extreme, as we have nonzero mass, but we could approximate it… with magical future engines. There's nothing fundamentally stopping us from exploring the entire universe. Besides the fact that Earth will have aged all those lost years in our absence.

Space travel is time travel. It's one continuum.

Yes, that's the real life relativity explanation, but I was just thinking of the bogus movie/TV idea of popping out of space/time and re-entering.

This is why I like Deskthority: it's a keyboard forum where you can start talking about horse laxatives and end up with time travel and relativity.

Everything is in constant motion - the Earth revolving, orbiting the Sun, the Sun around the galaxy, the galaxy rushing away from other galaxies. A single minute time travel in the exact same space could leave you light years away from where the Earth has moved.
Given that time and space are inextricable, surely time travel would *have* to involve space travel? Isn't time just a side-effect of matter? And we experience and measure time only through the changes manifest in matter. And change itself is measurement based on experience of time, without an awareness of which there can be no comparison to make. And the comparison makes no sense at fundamental levels if nothing is really quantifiable anyway. The upshot of which is that travel takes time, and nothing matters. Which any commuter can tell you anyway.

The other thing is that despite being 40, I look 30, because I type faster than my non-existent hypothetical twin who is a one-finger wonder.

Perhaps he could do the shark-hole thing.

No way, this thing is getting raffled even if it means I have to violently give it to someone.

Why not sacrifice the RF to appease whichever diety you obviously pissed off in 2013? That is the only way to ensure a prosperous new year.

The real story is quite good too:
The ad was drawn from the opening lines of an unfinished novel Silveira had let set in a drawer. The personal, Silveira said, got five responses. The time travel ad got thousands upon thousands.

You should run w Markov chain generator over all the previous spam mails to create unique and evolving responses to them!
