The Time Traveler Convention

May 7, 2005, 10:00pm EDT (08 May 2005 02:00:00 UTC)

East Campus Courtyard, MIT

42:21:36.025°N, 71:05:16.332°W

(42.360007,-071.087870 in decimal degrees)

This will be the first and only time traveler convention (since you can attend from any era, multiple conventions are unnecessary).  Come and meet time travelers from the past and future.  Introduce your grandchildren to your grandparents (you’ll probably have to pick up some of them first).

Please note that the date is in reference to the Gregorian Calendar in use at the host time.

I’m posting this here, as I believe that my blog will become so popular that transcripts should be available well into the future!

Dead Pool 2005 – my picks

Filed under: Dead Pool 

My picks for the Dead Pool 2005 are (in no particular order):

  • Saddam Hussein
  • Dick Clark
  • Mahmud Zahar – Hamas leader
  • George H. W. Bush (the former President, not the current one)
  • Osama Bin Laden
  • Dick Cheney (the current VP)
  • Robert Guillaume – the actor from “Benson” and “Sports Night”
  • Liza Minelli
  • Robert Byrd (US Senator)
  • William Rehnquist (currently Chief Justics of the Supreme Court)
  • Queen Elizabeth (of the UK)
  • King Fahd Ibn Abdul Aziz Al Saud (current King of Saudi Arabia)
  • James Doohan (Scotty from Star Trek)
  • Gerald Ford (the former US President)
  • Whitney Houston

I didn’t pick these people because I wanted them to die (well, except perhaps Osama Bin Laden) – I picked them because they are likely to die.
