Back to the Future Day (part 1)
Wednesday, October 21, 2015
A date I’ve been eagerly anticipating for decades.
Later today, of course, Marty McFly will participate in a hoverboard chase for the ages.
And I’ll be there, watching it on the big screen.
Words cannot express how much this trilogy has meant to me.
Though not only for its entertainment value; as Marty said when leaving 1955, it’s been educational.
After watching the life consequences Marty experienced after he took the bait of being called “chicken” (or “yellah” in Part III), I learned to walk away.
Thanks to the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, I learned how to play a Blues Riff in B (and still inevitably drift into his Johnny B Goode soloing when playing any kind of Blues/Rock tune).
I also enhanced my physics knowledge, having learned the approximate energy generated by a bolt of lightning, 1.21 Gigawatts!
And so much more.
To continue the educational journey, this afternoon, I simply had to transform the legendary Back to the Future II hoverboard scene into a French lesson:
So yes, a very happy Back to the Future day, Joyeux jour de Retour vers le Futur!
