Local Man Discovers Time Travel, but Only to the Present Day

Jun 23, 2023, 8:08 PM

A seemingly ordinary man stumbles upon a groundbreaking discovery that seems too good to be true. Harold Smith, aka "Harry," a local resident of a sleepy town in the heart of America, has made a discovery that has left scientists scratching their heads. The humble Harry, a self-proclaimed tinkerer, announced that he has discovered time travel. However, there is one major caveat to his discovery - he can only travel back and forth to the present day.

The news of Harry's discovery has sent shockwaves across the scientific community. The world-renowned physicist, Dr. Stephen Hawking, shared his thoughts on the discovery, stating that, "Harry's discovery is a game-changer that could revolutionize the way we perceive time. It could also mean that Harry has a few screws loose."

Despite the skepticism surrounding his discovery, Harry remains steadfast in his belief that he has discovered a way to travel through time. When asked about the specifics of his homemade time machine, Harry, with a smirk on his face, simply replied, "It's complicated."

As the excitement surrounding Harry's discovery grows, people have been lining up to meet the man who claims to have made such a groundbreaking discovery. The local newspaper, The Daily Wibble, caught up with Harry to ask him about his inspiration for building a time machine.

Harry explained, "I’ve always been interested in the concept of time travel. When I was a kid, I used to watch Back to the Future and thought it would be cool to go back and meet Leonardo da Vinci or go to the future and see flying cars."

Despite the excitement from the community, the limitations of Harry's time machine soon became apparent. With the inability to travel through time outside of the present day, Harry found his status as a time traveler, not as impressive as he initially thought.

Some critics claim that Harry's discovery of time travel only to the present day is not true time travel. Still, Harry remains undaunted and sees his discovery as just the beginning. He has even set his sights on developing a way to transport physical objects through time, like the 3:30 PM sandwich he forgot to pack for lunch.

As for the rest of the world, the discovery has left people feeling underwhelmed. While Harry's story may seem like something out of a sci-fi movie, it ultimately highlights the age-old adage that the more things stay the same, the more things stay the same.

At the end of the day, time continues to tick away, and humanity remains trapped in the present. Yet, we can't help but wonder, what would we do if we could travel through time? Would we do things differently or try to change the course of history? Perhaps Harry's discovery may seem insignificant, but it forces us to ask these questions and contemplate the meaning of time.

As for Harry, the world will eagerly await his next discovery, teleportation to the next city block, or maybe a hoverboard that actually hovers. Until then, we can only hope that Harry's discovery continues to inspire people to push the limits of what's possible, whether that means traveling through time or creating an even better sandwich.
