TSJ Goes Back to the Future

Back to the Future Blu Ray

Check it, we’re about to predict the future! Follow these instructions and get ready to have your mind rocked.

  1. Write down a three digit number. Make sure the number isn’t the same when you read it backwards. So, 231 is good, 131 is not.
  2. Now, take the reverse of the number and figure out the difference between the two by subtracting the smaller number from the larger. (Ex. 231 -132 = 99). Write down the resulting difference.
  3. Now, take the number you wrote down in step two and add the reverse of that number. If the number you wrote down in step two is only two digits, add a zero to the beginning. (Ex. 099 + 990).

Did you come up with 1089? If not, you messed up. If you did come up with 1089, we just totally predicted the future.

exploding headAnd that’s just the beginning of our powers. We also know exactly what the rest of the week on TSJ is going to look like. In honor of the long awaited release of the Back to the Future trilogy on Blu-Ray, which finally happens tomorrow, October 26th, 2010, we’ve got a whole slate of Back to the Future-themed features coming your way this week.

Tomorrow, put your winning suit on because we’re giving away copies of the new Back to the Future Blu-Ray to five lucky readers. On Wednesday, the smoking hot Kim Phillips gets her Hoverboard on. On Thursday, our weekly “Weird Wide Web” feature looks at the best BTTF mashups on the Internet. Friday is so drop dead incredible we can’t even tell you about it yet. You’ll just have to come back and see it for yourself.

In addition to those good times, throughout the week we’ll be dropping little shout outs to Back to the Future in some of our other columns and features. The reader who spots them all wins something awesome. We’ll have more details on that in the coming days, until then, keep your eyes peeled. There will be BTTF references everywhere, but they won’t be easy to spot. When you discover one, make note of it. You’ll be glad you did later.

And don’t forget to pick up a copy of the Back to the Future trilogy on Blu-Ray when it hits stores tomorrow. The newly restored classic comes packaged with all kind of extras:

  • Six part retrospective documentary Tales From the Future
  • Sixteen deleted scenes
  • 5.1 DTS -HD Master Audio
  • Q&A commentary with director Robert Zemeckis and producer Bob Gale
  • And much, much more!

Buy one for yourself and pick up a copy for that hard to buy for relative on your Christmas shopping list. If they don’t like it, consider finding new relatives.

We hope you dig our week long celebration of all things Back to the Future. In the meantime, get yourself in the time traveling spirit by reading up on some classic muscle cars from years gone by that you can still buy right now. Check it out here.
