BACK TO THE FUTURE: LAUGHING AT THE TRUTH
In the movie "Back to the Future" Michael J Fox a teenager goes from 1985 to 1955. He needs help to make the time machine fly back to 1985. So as he is trying to convince the eventual creator of the time machine that he is from the future, Doc asks, "Well then, tell me something, young man from the future: who’s the president of the United States in 1985?"
Doc laughs in disbelief. And we laugh. Because truly nobody would have ever thought back then that Ronald Reagan would be president.
RONALD Reagan watched the film, and he HAD THE PROJECTIONIST REWIND IT, AND HE LAUGHED EVEN MORE!
HAVE YOU EVER TOLD SOMEONE THE TRUTH, AND THEY LAUGHED BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE IT?
IN 1992 who would have believed...ARNOLD SCHWARTZENEGGER WOULD BE GOVERNOR of CALIFORNIA?
