Back to the Drawing Board

E-mail Submitted by Josie:

I could talk this whole email about how I think we're alike, amazing things I've done, and why I think we'd be a good match.  I will do none of these things.

In 1885, Doc Brown was back in time with his time machine and he met my grandfather.  He said "In the future, your grandson will meet a girl online and she'll be so amazed by his first message to her that she'll have no choice but to write back."

My grandfather asked "What's online?"

Doc Brown took my grandfather to a talking bison who said, "You must invent online."  My grandfather went on to invent the internet and now I am here writing to you just as Doc Brown said I would.

If you are interested in proof go see the excellent movies Back to the Future (parts 1,2,3) and see for yourself if I'm telling the truth.  Now you know.



  1. I would actually have replied to this guy.
    After all the crazies I've read about on this site I'd want to check he wasn't actually crazy and believed it, but assuming he's sane it's a reasonably interesting first message.

  2. Are you kidding? This is amazing! I want to marry this guy.

  3. I am joining the ladies of the site in the kerfuffle over homeboy. It was a cute message.

  4. Meh. It was cute, but I liked the 007 action email better. It was a little more creative.

  5. Too risky. His grandfather is probably related to Mad Dog Tannin. KF

  6. Holy shit he's Al Gore's grandson

  7. The BTTF movies were "Excellent"? Sorry, that's a deal-breaker.
