When not being chased by a fugitive, the one-armed man enjoys his favorite hobby - free climbing!

Precisely. The Doctor could not have killed his wife on this time line, as he was off tootling around in the Tardis light years, and thousands of years away when it happened. Even if he had gone back in time and appeared at the scene in time to do the dirty deed, he would have encountered the actual killer and have created a temporal paradox, or was that a pair o' ducks.

"Philadelphia Experiment"

I think you mean USS Eldridge, the ship in the story/movie.

Still a GA worthy comment.

Are you sure that Spock is not (or was not) performing veterinary tests on the rock creature on Earth to see if she is pregnant? I believe they call that test a palpation test for the embryo. Why did he not don the proper protective gear from the rock creature's digestive tract?

This is our best fossil of a Homo Sapiens from the Anthropocene Epoch. The missing forearm is thought to have been eaten by an industrial robot, their only natural predator. It is so well-preserved that you can even see the pale band on his arm where he once wore a tracking device that was used to trace his movements. Some Homo Sapiens on the fringes of society often tried to escape from "The Net", an all-seeing deity that they imagined could see their every move.

And this is a Picture of Marty McFly in an alternative universe where Marty McFly could not have his 16 year old father George McFly and mother Linda have their first kiss at their 'Under the Sea' prom.

And because of it.... no other sequels of 'Back to the Future" was made. But Michael J Fox did go onto to become a very successful insurance salesman.

In order to be a truly great rock climber, you must be one with the rock. Like your left arm. Now try that with the rest of your body.

And see if you can find Harry. We lost him in there last week.

After the destruction of the Death Star, Lord Vader took some time off for volunteer work to mentor youth. He is shown here (using the Force) teaching rock climbing with one of his more loyal students who had already taken his Beginning Light Saber course.
