An expert pointed out. Need an expert to know watches didn't exist 800 years ago. Also this expert isn't even right Switzerland was founded in the 11th century and the Ming Dynasty started in 1368... I call ********

Time travel cannot exist, because of the nature of time travel, if it is ever invented, it will have always existed.
User avatar #194 to #172 - lordofthesea (02/27/2014) [-]
I feel like the one of the hardest parts of time travel is projecting the location of the earth at a given time. Think about it- Our galaxy as a whole is moving, the earth orbits the sun, and we rotate! Even if a machine were invented that move a person through time, staying in the same location would mean finding yourself out in space nowhere near the Earth! The further in time a person would travel would magnify any inaccuracies.
#202 to #194 - Hightower (02/27/2014) [-]
But our path is fixed, so it would be possible to calculate where you would need to be as when you got when you were going. One may also be able to assume whatever allows time travel would work by reversing the flow of time itself, and therefore the physical movements would be reversed as well, allowing you to follow the planet in the same place back through time.

My point is, people aren't very bright. Oh, a person can be, but as a group, humans are "Dumb panicky creatures, and you know it". Someone, at some point in history would screw up, and let the cat out of the bag.
User avatar #204 to #202 - lordofthesea (02/27/2014) [-]
not necessarily- our path IS fixed but to my understanding we don't have the "exact" speed of any of those elements completely worked out to enough significant figures- we're talking thousands of kilometers per second, no? and don't earthquakes or other forces sometimes influence our axis or orbit just slightly? I'm really not clear on this subject too well but I can see a lot of people floating out there in space as a result of incredibly minor miscalculations.
#205 to #204 - Hightower (02/27/2014) [-]
Possibly, but an earthquake wouldn't change the galactic orbit of our sun, and assuming we're still dealing with a hypothetical scenario, I'm going to assume if we have a computer capable of performing the calculations for time travel, it should be able to account for orbital variations.
User avatar #214 to #205 - lordofthesea (02/27/2014) [-]
then it should be able to function as a teleporter too, if you think about it.
#215 to #214 - Hightower (02/27/2014) [-]
True I suppose, if you remove the time travel equations, and just negate the motion of the universe around you, you should be able to slip something like 30, 000 kilometers in a second, but again you run into the problem of the sheer speed the universe is moving.
User avatar #217 to #215 - lordofthesea (02/27/2014) [-]
actually, the idea is that's how you solve it.
one aspect of the machine cannot exist without the other.

If you build a time machine that can manipulate time without manipulating location, you're floating around in space.
If you manipulate location without manipulating time, what you're really doing is creating a method of instant travel to any location. You need that for the time machine to function anyway. Regardless, the movement of the celestial bodies has to be taken into account to create a time machine, even if as you said "just let it calculate that through the proper equations", we don't know what they are with enough certainty.

really 3 things then-

manipulate time, moving matter without harming the subject, and manipulate location

There are other radioactive isotopes that can be used on inorganic materials for dating, so they could get a rough estimate of its age either way probably.
#22 to #21 - internetshakespear (02/27/2014) [-]
That is absolutely correct. Seeing as it is a watch, it most likely contains some kind of crystal (probably quartz), so we may be able to use thermoluminescence dating to figure out when the crystal was heated up. However, in my original comment I was merely pointing out that C 14 dating wouldn't work.

it's a ring. It has nothing to do with watches. Carbon dating would reveal it's 4000 years old, so?

>Carbon date

#29 to #3 - anon (02/27/2014) [-]
what would dating the watch prove. either it was made 400 years ago and will appear 400 years old. or it was made in the future send back to 400 years ago and will appear 400 years old. or it was inspired by a device seen on a time travelers wrist and will appear 400 years old.

to me it looks like it part of a larger piece of jewelry and the "watch face" is just flat because its where a gem is supposed to be placed.,
#31 to #29 - internetshakespear (02/27/2014) [-]
Actually, it would be older than 400 years old. Consider this: let's pretend the watch was made in 2100. Someone buys it and keeps it until 2120, at which point they go back in time. They then lose the watch and it is buried for 400 years. When we unearth it, the watch would have existed for a total of 420 years (20 in the future, plus the 400 in the past), so the watch would be 420 years old - since it starts aging the moment it is made, not the moment it is brought back in time.

Yes, because they definitely didnt round to 400 years...
User avatar #163 to #3 - wiredguy (02/27/2014) [-]
oookay, so

carbon dating only works on living remains, because it's testing the ratio of carbon 12/14 present from carbon dioxide. Notice that, dioxide, breathing, living.

And even if it did apply to inanimate objects, which it can, it would be applying to the very formation of the substance itself, not when it was carved. That isn't exactly a chemical landmark from an individual atom's point of view.
the only time that is useful is in dating the age of a particular layer of rock, for working out how old something is you've dug down to.

#20 to #3 - internetshakespear (02/27/2014) [-]
I like your skepticism, but carbon dating won't work. The watch is inorganic, and carbon dating only works on organic materials. It works by measuring the Carbon 14 in an organism and figuring out how many half-lives went by to estimate an age.    
   
   
tl;dr - good thinking, but carbon dating only works on things which were once alive.

How sensitive would it be if I rubbed peanut butter on my nipples?
User avatar #104 to #102 - jokesexplain (02/27/2014) [-]
Well, i normally explain jokes, but ok, ill try to make an exception.
It would be quite a dry sensation, as peanut butter it filled with salts, therefore making it good at taking in liquid. But you would feel a pleasure beyond the normal level of pleasure, because of the awesomeness in Peanut butter. Combine it with some Jelly, and you will get a shock of stimuli that will last between 3-5 hours.
Sex explained
Hmm, not my usual catchphrase...

It should become your usual catchphrase, I am now slathered in the stuff and my nipples will be hard for months
User avatar #30 to #20 - Blargosnarf (02/27/2014) [-]
Also I'm pretty sure a Carbon 14's half life is well beyond 400 years.
User avatar #51 to #30 - adplum (02/27/2014) [-]
carbon 14's half life is 5730 years, and thats not how carbon dating works. Because its a half life, the carbon will continue to half again and again, and will in theory never reach zero, which is how they measure how old something is; by measuring how much carbon 14 is left.
