backbuttonHave you ever noticed the similarities between the internet and time travel?

No?

Well, if you go back in time and do not change anything, everything will continue to happen as it is supposed to, in order to have everything the same in the present. But if you change something when you go back in time, you will alter the space-time continuum and the present has the potential to be very different.

When you press the back button in your browser (or on your mouse if it is posh like mine) once or several times, as long as you don’t click anything else, you can click the forward button to get back to the most current page. But if you click something – you change the landscape of history FOREVER!

Just something I noticed.
