A True Labor Of Life

I Love xkcd!

I've rhapsodized about the web comic xkcd before -- and I'm sure I will again. But this latest is an elaborate graphical chart, worthy of Edward Tufte's Napoleon's March to Moscow. It's a time-and-place character graph of big movies. Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, Star Wars for sure. But Twelve Angry Men? Hilarious. Then another movie I've not heard of, so I guess I miss that joke. (Wikipedia says Primer is a 2004 American science fiction film about the accidental discovery of time travel. I've got it order from Amazon.) (grin)

This is bloody brilliant. Really.

A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far Far Away

My officemate in grad school at Michigan Tech once did a huge chart of all the timelines in the Back to the Future series. It gets really complicated.

You do realize that Michael J. Fox never gets "home" again. Is that "right"? Or not? (grin)
