Robo No. No you did not travel through time.
Dr. Dinosaur Of course I did, I'm a genius!
Robo But mostly you're insane.
Switch to Dr. Dinosaur hiding among the rocks, while Robo hides behind a crashed helicopter.
Dr. Dinosaur Am not!
Robo Listen. Let's assume, just for the sake of argument, that time travel is possible.
Dr. Dinosaur It is!
Robo Anyway. The Earth spins at over one thousand miles per hour. It revolves around the sun at sixty-seven thousand miles per hour. The sun orbits the Milky Way at a speed I don't know off the top of my head, but it's huge. The Milky Way hurtles through intergalactic space faster than that.
Robo (while Dr. Dinosaur rolls his eyes) If you traveled just one second through time, you might still be within the circumference of Pluto's orbit when you die in the cold vacuum of space.
