Can't Believe I Missed It

Saturday was "Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day":
It can be any kind of future from Terminator to Freejack. The important thing to remember is dress like a crazy person with armor. Black spray painted football pads, high tech visors, torn up trenchcoats and maybe even some dirt here or there. Remember, dystopian future travelers are very startled that they've gone back in time. Some starters:

- If you go the "prisoner who's escaped the future" try shaving your head and putting a barcode on the back of your neck. Then stagger around and stare at the sky, as if you've never seen it before.

- Walk up to random people and say "WHAT YEAR IS THIS?" and when they tell you, get quiet and then say "Then there's still time!" and run off.

- Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell "NOOOOOOOOO"

Actually, you didn't miss it.

You can always pretend that you just arrived here from Saturday. In a blue box with a flashing light on top, accompanied by a rather toothy but not unattractive young blond woman.

Good point--but how about in a red box and wearing a long scarf?
