I've been telling you for years that Marty McFly traveled in time to today's date

New, comments

For years, Jon has argued that today is the day Marty McFly travels to the future. And after years of doubts, everyone has finally realized that Jon was right all along.

It is difficult for me to know how to feel. I cannot decide whether the happiness of others is more important than my own. I don't know where pride ends and pettiness begins. Where the sands of ownership creep beneath the ocean of community.

These are questions I ought to answer on my own time before I claim any more of yours. Today is the day Marty McFly traveled to in the film Back to the Future Part II.

There's your source. I suppose I wasn't important enough to listen to. I guess there's nothing you could learn from this old sack of bones.

But I tried to tell you. I really did. I have been telling you, for years, that Marty McFly traveled in time to today's date.

And now, all of you who doubted me must be held to account.

2. It's not November. That's false.
3. You're seriously the same person who corrected me on my Back to the Future tweet from like a month ago

December 10, 2013

Yep! It is true!

marty15

Uh, that's what I'm saying?

marty16

Wrong.

Haha! Correct! #TeamMarty

marty17

No, gotchA. Or gotCHA. Whatever I type to tell you that you were the one that ... like, I got you. You didn't get me.

marty18

Wrong. Like, all the way totally wrong.

Correct.

marty20

Uh, that's what I'm saying?

October 12, 2015

That's correct! It's good to check for hoaxes, though. There are hoaxes all over the Web.

marty21

Wrong. And what is that Snopes site everyone keeps sending me? I'm trying to click on that right now but you're just a screencap so it doesn't do anything. Well, whatever.

marty22

Wrong. You shouldn't be so dismissive of others if you're the one who's wrong.

October 18, 2015

Correct! Sourcing is important.

marty23

I'm having trouble keeping track of which level of wrong you are. But you're wrong.

marty24

Way to put me on blast. Now you're the one who's wrong in front of everybody. Wrong.

October 19, 2015

Correct! Bet they do!

marty25

Uh, that's what I'm saying?

October 20, 2015

Correct!

marty26

Ah yeah, thank you, man. Thanks for the better proof.

I am careful to celebrate my vindication without celebrating the wrongness of others. That isn't a thing to celebrate. We're allowed to be wrong. I cannot, however, help but resent you. I spoke the truth and you beat me down at every turn.

Marty McFly traveled in time to today's date.
