    If I had known it was on the market I could have turned it into a house boat. My wife has been wanting to move to the beach!

    Marty McFly: [looks through a camcorder] This is heavy-duty, Doc. This is great. Uh, does it run, like, on regular unleaded gasoline?
    Dr. Emmett Brown: Unfortunately, no. It requires something with a little more kick. Plutonium.
    Marty McFly: Um, plutonium. Wait a minute. Are...
    [lowers the camcorder]
    Marty McFly: Are you telling me that this sucker is NUCLEAR?
    Dr. Emmett Brown: Hey, hey, hey! Keep rolling. Keep rolling there.
    [Marty raises the camcorder]
    Dr. Emmett Brown: No, no, no, no, no, this sucker's electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need.
    Marty McFly: Doc, you don't just walk into a store and-and buy plutonium! Did you rip that off?
    Dr. Emmett Brown: Of course. From a group of Libyan nationalists. They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and, in turn, gave them a shoddy bomb casing full of used pinball machine parts. Come on! Let's get you a radiation suit. We must prepare to reload.

    Well, if I had been able to sell my other yacht I could have used the proceeds to cover those costs. But it was destroyed rescuing someone. :rolleyes:

    Now that I think about it, the Forrestal would have made one hell of a time machine!

    Good Point, the Nimitz was the only carrier built with a flux capacitor. I remember when Congress cut the funding for the project for the remaining carriers.
