The story of John DeLorean:
Geo and I were having a discussion the other day about super powers: If you could have just one super power, what would it be?
Like a child, I said “I’d be able to fly!” and then I grinned hella big. Geo shook his head and said “Word? Well, I’d have the ability of time travel.”
“Why?” I asked.
“Think about it,” he said. “With time travel, you actually have the capacity to secure any other super power you wanted. For example, if you wanted to fly, you could just travel to a future time where personal flying technology was developed and bring it back. Now you have the ability to fly AND the ability to travel through time.”
After hearing this explanation I changed my answer to time travel as well.
“Also,” he continued with a chuckle, “you could hear a really dope song and then go back 4 months and just write and release it before that artist did hahaha.”
This was funny to me. “You sound like you’ve thought about time travel a lot.”
“I have,” he replied. “I even wrote a song about it. Here.”
“Oh snap. We should put this out.”
“Sure, and your email could basically be a recap of this conversation.”
“Hey, great idea.”
