Never understood in the Back to the Future trilogy how 1985 Biff or Marty's parents didn't look at 1985 Marty and recognise/remember him from when he was in 1955

It would suck to have your family and friends die but with immortality you can have new family and friends over millenia.

Immortality would be the greatest thing i could ever have in my humble opinion
what you think you like in life now would be infinitely boring in 1000 years.The suffering in life will always be stronger than the joy of it , and while life is great to experience one time it isn't something that is made to last so long.In 6000 years you would literally get crazy knowing you can't stop it , and in billions of year the sun is going to stop shining for our planet.Life wasn't made for infinity.And that's ignoring our poor understanding of the concept of time.

You don't want life to stop now because you know it has an end , but in the hypothetical scenario where your life wouldn't end , it is the end that you would seek.That's human nature.You want what you don't have.Would I want to live 300 years? Maybe.Probably.I could do multiple ph.ds and be a top researchers in many fields , all in one brain.That would be incredible to have so much knowledge.Would I want to live 7000 years? Hell no.Once I did my part I'm out of here.In 1000 years when you have reached your limit in all facets of life and are facing the limitations of your human prototype , you would just get furious about it and angry that no matter how long you work for things there's a limit to what your brain and body can do.There's also times in human civilisation when things wouldn't be so great.

It's not like he was there for a long time.

Would you remember a person's face you saw for a day or two 30 years ago?

Why do people race to park front row at a gym? Kinda hypocritical isnt it? You cant walk an extra 20 feet just to go inside the gym where you are about to excersize anyways?

What? If you pull into a parking lot, isn't it fairly natural to park close to the entrance? Just think, if you are short on time, those extra seconds can be spent on your workout

Hollywood's explored every last avenue but why have they never made a Hardy Boys movie? They did Nancy Drew in black and white and then a coloured one (though it took 50+ years) but how have they never made one for the Hardy Boys? Don't even get me started on Encyclopedia Brown.

You would if he caused you to crash into a manure truck, and all the other crap Marty did to Biff

and at the end of part 1, it was implied that he was the reason his parents named one of their kids Marty when at the end his mom says "Marty, such a nice name"

You can't explain that
Billions of years ago, when the Earth was still a ball of lava, something massive crashed into the planet. Seriously massive. Large enough to tilt Earth's axis to the angle it is at now...which incidentally, was hugely important because that is why we now have seasons.

The debris that flew into Earth's orbit from this collison, though the forces of gravity, eventually packed together and formed the moon.

now, how the moon began to orbit the earth at the exact point where it wasn't pulled into the Earth is a mystery, but the rotation of the Earth coupled with the gravitational forces of the moon result in the ebb and flow of the tides.

good times.

Funny that so many random events led to Earth being the perfect planet to support life. It changed from a ball of death (rivers of lava, no atmosphere, etc.) to teh shiny blue oasis that we know today. Crazy.

At the risk of sounding sexist (which I am not), but I cannot understand why so many people believe that all women, regardless of who they are, do not deserve harsh penalties/consequences.

I had a conversation a while back with some friends and we got into discussing self defense and one asked me if I would become physically violent with a threatening woman if I felt my life was in danger (ex, if she was armed and I had a way to disarm her if it meant injuring her), I responded "Yes.".

And I received a lot of these:

It seems that many people feel that adult women, who are completely aware of what they are doing and that what they are doing is wrong, should not be held accountable for their action simply because they are women. Don't get it.

Really? You wouldn't remember the person who gatecrashed your prom where you met the person you married, who went on stage shredding a guitar and who looked, acted and sounded EXACTLY like your son when he was that age?

Please

Ask any woman what boy they liked when they were in high school. They remember.

Thank you Ceremony. There was also the fact that in part 2, 1985 Biff remembered crashing into the manure truck, surely he would have remembered the person who did caused it. And during the hoverboard chase scene, even 2015 Biff remembered and said "there's something very familiar about all this"

Obviously Krishna didn't reply to my rebuttal, because he was wrong.

Maybe when George and Marty hit Biff, they punched him really hard. Especially Marty, which was only a few moments after George decked him.

Why every once in awhile, the Earth's magnetic poles switch. Also, why hasn't it happened in so long? Why is it so random?

I know that the outer core circulates around the inner creating our magnetic field and sometimes it's rhythm or direction or speed changes to affect our magnetic poles, but why?!
