Time travel is tricky business. Scientists seem to always be wringing their hands over the potential implications of time travel. That is, if you believe the movies, and The Onion News Network’s analysis of Mitt Romney’s scheme to eliminate any versions of himself that sound too liberal, preventing the conservative vote!

SciAm Blogs makes our pop culture debut at about 1:57!


Romney To Travel Back In Time To Kill Liberal Versions Of Himself

It’s official, Scientific American Blogs are cool!

(This is not the first time that The Onion has approached the subject of scifi travel. You might enjoy this piece, “I Don’t Define Myself by my Ability to Travel Between Dimensions“)

    Do you really want an idiot like Romney lording himself over this nation, like Bush did? Has he ever been checked for mental retardation? Stay with Obama, at least he doesn’t play with children’s toys or make really stupid remarks like that. Just mentioning that idiot tool all the value away from this article.

    JamesDavis – did you watch the video? What on earth does your comment have to do with its content? Or the paragraph that Joanne wrote about it? Is this just an automatic reaction to a *mention* of a politician without actual reading of the text?
