1.21 Gigawatts

Fancy your very own time machine, already fitted with a flux capacitor and loaded with plutonium*? Then check out this DeLorean for sale on eBay. Once you've won, take your new baby out on to the road, hit 88 miles an hour and Bob's your uncle. (Or is that your nephew? I never could get the hang of paradoxes.)

Outatime!

*plutonium not included, time machine may not actually travel in time.

Or better still, persuade Steve Jobs to release the Macintosh operating system for PCs, thereby removing Herr Gates and his merry impediment to progress from the game altogether!

(wipes tear from eye)

Well, I don't know what to say. It's all been so sudden. I never thought I would be here, but I have managed to rise to the lofty heights of Geekier Than Thou.

I'd just like to say a few thank-yous: to all my friends, my family - this is for you, mom and dad - and loved ones, all the people who believed in me, my agent, my promotional manager, my stylist and make-up consultants and not forgetting the Big Guy upstairs...it's all thanks to you, fat bloke in the flat above me, for keeping me awake with you elephant-like footsteps and crap taste in music...

Oh, Yes...
By far the best acceptance speech I've seen for a long time.

Pity about the crumpled dinner jacket, though... :D

You should friend me, I think we'd have some fun ;D

Well, it has been a while since the ol' DJ has been out for an airing.

You should friend me, I think we'd have some fun ;D

Oh yes? Well, as Mr Claypole would say, "'tis done!"

As did I...
"The value of shares bought in the past as a result of time travel may go down as well as up"
"Plutonium can be harmful, always read the label"

I'm sure there are 1000 more...
