Is it possible that he placed a bunch of his clocks in the DeLorean and sent them forward 25 minutes into the future, thus rendering them 25 minutes slow? Complete speculation of course. -- Riffsyphon1024 08:36, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

No, he would have seen that they were slow when he set them back up again. He hadn't been home all week, so the experiment must have been running continuously in his garage. On the other hand, he didn't notice the clocks were slow when he added the clock with the correct time (maybe he was too focused on putting the plutonium under his bed to notice). I'm wondering if the large amount of electricity needed for the experiment, spread out over a whole week, was actually the cause of the amplifier overloading.

Is it possible that this was some kind of test to see which clocks held the best time? This would be very important to Doc, seeing as he would need exact precision in time travel. -JimmytheJ 11:06, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

  • It's a nice theory, but we need to limit original research here on our articles. Only if an official source details what the experiment was for should we then make a note of it. -- Riffsyphon1024 02:52, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
  • That's a rather sarcastic greeting and unnecessary lecture to a new editor, don't you think? How is his comment any different from your "Is it possible..." comment that began the discussion? I imagine that this user is familiar with what original research is, which is why he put this on a TALK page, rather than in the article itself. McFord 19:41, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
