        why would one need a time machine to simulate a time machine? i
mean, if i were not the chrononaut who's actually going back in time, all
i would see are some newspaper headlines. if i _were_ going back in time,
the only overhead would be the portion of the world that i would notice to
be different -- one wouldn't even need to fork the entire simulation.
