    Crossing a time machine with a wash machine is a dangerous thing. You could go back/forward into time and there would be no (place your political opposition here).

    With regards to time travel and washing machines, my first thought was this: “We need more Calgon!”

    Not to mention the “Calgon, take me away!” commercials which didn’t involve
    Asian stereotypes playing fake stereotypes, but rather a naked white woman ( in a tub if my young impressionable male mind recalls that correctly. It was the Viagra commercial of my youth. (I averted my eyes)

    Apparently that was the longest running TV commercial in history.

      Ryan a little off topic but my eyes were drawn to the parent’s Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass “Whipped Cream & Other Delights” album. Really captivated the attention of me and my buddies. Can’t say that I recall ever listening to the album, but we really enjoyed the cover.

    Just a note to readers: All comments are still running through moderation, so don’t fret if you’re snappy comebacks don’t show up immediately.

    One of ten? What a tease…

  5. Judith Lowry says:

    If I had the chance to travel back in time, I would hasten to encourage the Nisenan people to designate their lands as historic, and protected by laws. These laws would forbid the removal of oak trees, the disturbance of waterways, the washing away of mountains and would also require all dwellings to be indigenous in form and function. That way, centuries of living harmoniously with this ecosystem might have continued and this place might still be a garden. The Nisenan were the ultimate “slow growth” society, but progress came to the foothills instead.

  6. Re JudithL’s 338pm – Do losers get to put such legal strictures on lands that they lost?

    • Judith Lowry says:

      Mr. Rebane,

      In a just world no one would “lose” their lands.
      (You make it sound as though the Nisenan misplaced something.)
      However, this is not a just world and peace and justice, like time travel, are fiction.

      In the real world, we do eventually tend to pay for our misdeeds at the hand of a higher power or by our own.
      Unto seven generations or six?
      I can never remember.

      Look around you, are you happy with what you see?

    • Michael Anderson says:

      Dr. Rebane,

      A gentle reading of Jared Diamond’s “Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies” would direct you to a more enlightened understanding of the concept of winners and losers in human society going forward. So even within your antiquated understanding of the term “losers,” the answer is yes, “losers” do indeed “get to put such legal strictures on lands that they lost.”

      Michael Anderson
