Morlocks aside, how would YOU like to visit, even live hundreds of years in the future? There may be a way, and that is the purpose of The Time Travel Fund(tm).
Q: How does this work?
A: Current scientific theory states that Time Travel may be possible, however the technology is a long way off, perhaps hundreds of years in the future. Now, assume it does become possible in say, 500 years. As with any technology, Time Travel will get less expensive as time goes on. Just as the price of a VCR has dropped to less than $70 from the several hundred dollars it cost just ten years ago, Time Travel, once it becomes feasible, will initially be very expensive yet it will become more and more economical as time goes by.
Q: How does this help me?
A: The concept is that one day, it may be possible for people living far in the future to retrieve you from your current frame of reference (their past - your present) and bring you into the future (their present - your future.)
Q: Why would they want to?
A: That is the purpose of the fund. The simple answer is, we pay them to bring you into the future.
Yup. $10 to these folks gives you at least a shot at having some future goon show up, stuff you in a sack and drag you off to a dystopian future where you'll be forced to give up your organs to some exotic buffet and spend the rest of your life with a fifteen lb. heart-lung machine shoved in yer gullet, shooting mutants for sport and watching alien bestiality porn on the Internet.
Sounds like fun, no?
You can read the Member Agreement here. It's actually a pretty down-to-Earth thing. Even if this is nothing more than a scam, it's 1000% more entertaining than most of the crap on the web. (Thanks to FARK for this one)
