Time travel is possible. Theoretically anyway. Or so I’ve read. The mathematics prove it. The theory of relativity says it so. Yet no one as of today has travelled any when. No one born before today, anyway. But what if time travel were actually possible, beyond theory. What if it was just a matter of attaining more computing power and using the right materials to build the time machine. Perhaps not today, or tomorrow, but let’s say within the next one to two hundred years it had become somewhat practical to do so. How could we prove for sure that someone had achieved it?

Another time, I received a spam email from a supposed time traveller who needed parts for his time machine.
