Missile a time warp?
« on: February 14, 2008, 10:31:21 PM »
Daniel said that when, although he had a signal, couldn't use his guidance device to bring in the payload.  What does that mean?

Sorry, too early.  The payload arrives but after a 31 minute delay.  Why in the world then can he speak to the lady on the boat in real time?

if the island moved through datelines and timezones it be delayed by 31 minutes
or they are just experiencing a time line 31 min later.

Offline this is some crazy stuff

The only thing that really doesnt make sense is how they can still talk to each other like nothing is different.

Also, why can you get through if you go straight through a certain berring.

So the rocket took 31 minutes to get to Dan. Is the island in a time warp? Is that why Walt is taller, older? And just a side note, this episode was OMG!

The island has some kind of temporal distortion around it. That is why no one can easily find it.

Whatever it has around it, where did the rocket go for 31 minutes??  Was it just circling around lost?

It's like the universe expanding. The space from the rocket to the island is moving at the same time, speed and trajectory but the space between them is expanding proportionally: it just takes 31 minutes longer

either there was a time warp, or possibly the magnetic disturbances messed with the clock.

dan was very specific to frank that he should follow the exact heading, maybe that heading leads to a window where one can avoid these types of disturbances.?

So who else was thinking of Doctor Emmit Brown when Faraday had the two clocks next to each other?  Great scott!

That's hilarious! Dan's just as fidgety as Doc Brown!

I don't think TPTB will be able to explain it as electromagnetism messing with the time.

It is interesting that if the magnetism did mess with the time...the seconds were still exaclty the same...33 on each.  So it just messed with the minutes?  I don't know anymore!
