Just watched a BBC presenter pretending to be the Doc and faffing about in the Delorian - oh deary me :roll:
I haven't seen BttF for ages, but I'm pretty sure the Doc didn't wear a suit and tie

Unfortunately, the prediction in BttF 2 of the Cubs winning the World Series in 2015 is wrong as the Cubs were knocked out of the competition on Wednesday night :(

As well as the still possibly a bit dubious variants of cold fusion designated LENR(Which don't seem to have died a full death yet) there are at least 3 more legitimate(As in they don't need new physics but do need very efficient engineering& top level materials tech) new fusion technologies that might be able to scale down to shipping container size or maybe if we are lucky large barrel of oil size so even though you won't be able to have a fusion powered electric delorean self driving or not see below you might possibly see a fusion powered electric Winnebago within the next 25 years if the new fusion reactors pass relevant safety tests though I am not sure the one that uses liquid lead to compress the superheated plasma would get a road worthy certificate :wink: :twisted:

Why would anyone want a self-driving DeLorean? :lol: :lol: :lol: I mean, really. The Space Shuttle would land itself, but no commander ever gave up the stick!

The average garage in the UK would be totally unsuitable for the DeLorean. Drive in and you cannot get out! Self-driving or not.
