  1. Harry Potter and time travel? That one surprised me.

  2. Cool infographic. I never get tired of time travel movies. I like all the different rules in them.

  3. I've got to dispute the Source Code points. If you're Jeffrey Wright, you think things can't be changed. Clearly by the end of the movie, Jake Gyllenhaal has. It's his consciousness that has been shifting anyway, not his body. So he gets to change the outcome and get the girl. It's such a brilliant movie. And then, I guess I'm not surprised that most people just aren't going to understand what happened. But it'd be nice that infographic people wouldn't be among them.

  4. Your blog is very informative for the every visitor. I am a tourist and I like to travel all over the world for my traveling interests. Your shared information is quiet helpful for every visitors. Now, I am going to the chinatown bus nyc to niagara falls tour with my friends. I must follow your suggested rules during my travel.
