Those were great. Yeah this movie is like that. The basic point of the movie is a small change early in life will bring about dramatic changes later.

I disagree. I mean sure some changes will, but the vast majority of them don't matter. E.g. if i went back 3 years and skipped breakfast on May 24th, would it make a difference in my life now? Probably not. On the other hand some changes will have huge consequences.

I think the point the movie tries to make is that you can't change the past and still be able to predict the future. I also think this point is wrong. With enough game theory you can make generalized predictions.

On that note, i finally beat this guy in a game of Pearls Before Swine.
