Want a good excuse to wear aluminum foil in Boston?

"BOSTON - Attention, time travelers: Amal Dorai hopes you enjoyed the party he's throwing this weekend. Dorai, a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is hosting a Time Traveler Convention on campus this Saturday...Dorai only asks his guests to show proof they come from the future: Bringing the cure for cancer, a solution for global poverty or a cold fusion reactor would suffice. The convention starts at 8 p.m. For dramatic effect, time travelers are encouraged to show up at 10 p.m. sharp. In between, revelers will take in a lecture on time travel by an MIT physics professor and listen to student bands belting out time-themed songs." 

 And what people wouldn't make the monumental effort of traveling through time for a lecture and a rendition of Timeless by a student band? Still might be a good reason to dress up in aluminum foil, march in there and proclaim, "I Come From The Future' while trying to pass off a Tic Tac as a cure for the common cold.
