Is Time Travel Possible?

Is time travel possible? Slap The Penguin had an exclusive interview with Lithuanian born Laiko Keliautojas, who says "Yes It Is."

Time Travel?
We received an email from Laiko claiming that he travelled back in time using a machine that he had been building and perfecting for the last 9 years. Intrigued, we invited him to visit the Slap The Penguin office to share his story.

After hearing the story of how building the machine cost him his job, his marriage, most of his money and almost his sanity, we asked him to show us the proof of his time traveling exploits. Some fresh dinosaur bones maybe, or a newspaper from the future perhaps.

He reached into his shirt pocket and pulled out a lottery ticket with last Saturday's winning numbers on it. “I needed a way to fund my experiments since it is so expensive generating 1.21 gigawatts of power to tear the very fabric of time and pass through the hole. I figured I could travel back with the winning numbers and buy a jackpot winning ticket”

When asked why he hadn't yet claimed the jackpot prize he explained to us the details of causality and his apprehension of creating a temporal paradox, not to mention the moral impropriety involved in cheating the system. And that due to a miscalculation he hadn't traveled back far enough in time to buy the ticket before the lottery deadline.

“I bought the temporal circuit actuator (alarm clock) at the dollar store and forgot to make adjustments on the time zone selector panel for the Taiwanese component so I was 12 hours late.” Laiko continued, “The painful irony is that I was supposed to travel backwards exactly 12 hours to buy my lottery ticket once I had confirmed the winning numbers, so I ended up traveling to the exact point in time from when I left.”

When asked to provide us with a demonstration of the machine Laiko told us that another miscalculation had caused the machine to be destroyed by cosmic waves and fire upon re-entry to the time continuum.

Some may look at his Swiss cheese story and dismiss Laiko as a madman or headline seeker. What do you think?
