Future Day: Anatomy of a Hoax

This awesome hoax gives me a perfect opportunity to geek out, so I will jump right on top of it.

#1 - This shot floating around the internet is a hoax

#2 - In Back to the Future II, Marty goes to 2015. That's right, in the first one, he goes 30 years back; in the second, 30 years forward. They even discuss this later.

#3 - This screen shot doesn't even come from Part II. Pay close attention to PRESENT TIME and LAST TIME DEPARTED. Notice how one is only 2 minutes ahead of the other. This comes from the scene in Part I right after Doc Brown sends Einstein 2 minutes ahead in time.

#4 - What's that you say? Maybe July 6, 2010 is somehow referenced in Part 1. WRONG. As soon as I saw this, I popped in my roommate's DVD and checked it. Doc Brown inputs

July 4, 1776 - The signing of the Declaration of Independence
December 25, 0000 - The birth of Christ
November 5, 1955 - The night Doc Brown slipped on the toilet and invented time travel

There you go, debunked. Sorry to burst your bubbles. See you in 2015.

I worry about Doc's credentials if he's inputting Dec 25, 0000 as the birth of Christ.

Cut him some slack. It was way back in 1985 when we didn't know shit about anything.
