Day 121: Remember Remember... The Flux Capacitor
Today is November 5th and no doubt you've seen about a billion tweets and status updates about Guy Fawkes day which people only really know about because of V for Vendetta (myself included). But did you know November 5th is a special day for another reason? November 5th 1955 is the day Doc Brown slipped on his toilet while hanging a clock and get the idea for the flux capacitor. November 5th 1955 is the day time travel was invented! So go watch Back to the Future and be thankful for the great minds in science like Doc Brown.
