It is Back to the Future week at, a fellow awesome science geeks blog.
Over the past week, the Overthinking It team has subjected the Back to the Future trilogy to a level of scrutiny it certainly deserves, pointing out a wide variety of paradoxes, inconsistencies, and unanswered questions regarding the series.
They discuss "obligatory complications surrounding causality in time-travel paradoxes to hoverboards which don't work above water to the continued reminder of the sheer mathematical improbability of Huey Lewis and the News." And oh yes, the bloggers say, there will be math involved.

As Bill says to Mr. The Kid in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, "Billy, you are dealing with the oddity of time travel with the greatest of ease." I submit for Bill's consideration, which deals with the oddity of pop culture's approach to science with the greatest of ease, aplomb and humor.
