Using Old Photos to Tear the Fabric of Space-Time Itself
feature-space-time

Photojojo science update: we have learned of a way to tear holes in the space-time continuum and stare back into the mists of time.*

Being the existential daredevils that we are, we’re risking reality as we know it to share this discovery with all of you. Proceed with caution.

Step 1:
Find a very old photo of a street or landmark near where you live. (Try your local historical society or check the public library — many of them keep collections of historic photos).

Step 2:
Go to the exact place where the photo was taken.

Step 3:
Hold up the picture and match the view of bygone days to the ultra-futuristic scene in front of you.

Be warned: though you may peer into the window in the space-time continuum, do not fall through. The other side of the window is a nightmarish half-life of Morlocks, flux capacitors and Michael J. Fox.

Using Old Photos as a DIY Time Machine

*Yeah, we know that the last four times we tore holes in the space-time continuum we ended up destroying the known universe. We swear that won’t happen again this time. Probably.

p.s. Hey everybody, sorry about the broken link in Monday’s newsletter. Boy, are our faces red.
