A Conversation About Time Travel with My Father


Me: Here’s a question for you, Dad.

Dad: Ok, shoot.

Me: How long do you think you’d have to go back in time in order to be considered the smartest man on Earth?

Dad: I don’t know.  1930 maybe.

Me: What?!?  No way.  I was thinking it’d have to be in caveman days.

Dad: Nah.  It’s way more recent than that.

Me: So you’re saying if you went back 500 years, you’d be smarter than someone like say, Copernicus?  The guy used math to figure out that the Earth revolved around the Sun.

Dad: Yeah, but can Copernicus drive a stick shift?
