  I am a Time Traveller. Yes, I Travel through Time. How do I do it? I don't know. I just do. I can't help it, but I often wish I could. As with most super powers, mine comes with limitations. All those stupid SciFi shows get it all wrong. I don't 'fold the space-time continuum' or anything. I don't create a 'worm hole'. I'm pretty sure worms make worm holes and, in my experience, there is no relationship between space and time. Also Time Travel doesn't happen instaneously. Well, I don't know any other Time Travellers, but it doesn't happen instaneously with me. It takes me roughly 3600 seconds to cross over a time span of just one hour. One year takes me only, oh, I'd say 31,536,000 seconds. Longer if it's a Leap Year. Wicked, I know! Oh, and I can only travel forward in time. It's like I'm here one second and *blip* I'm gone off on a Time Travelling episode. Yeah, I'm pretty awesome. I feel sorry for all the time-bound types who have to take a whole hour to cross over an hour of time. Another thing the movies get wrong is that I do age as I Travel through Time. One day I'll probably die while jetting to a future Time and I'll arrive there dead. Old and dead. It's a danger I face. It's worth it to have a super power. Don't envy me and I won't pity you. See you later.
