BTTF Internet debates raged on by those incapable of screen-capture or proper pausing

I remember numerous online debates about the date which Marty and company traveled to or from. I largely ignored these discussions since all the relevant info was contained within a 2-hour movie. Find the spot and capture the screen or just hit pause to reveal the answer to this non-question.

So, the Internet overwhelmingly tells me that today (October 21, 2015) is THE day. The Back To The Future II date. Um... OK. Isn't this the same Internet that seems unable to get facts right across a sea of awful Wikipedia entries on a multitude of topics?

In all fairness, it would seem that today is the day on which it's appropriate to release all those Back To The Future memes without having to argue over the accuracy of the date. I'm sure there will still be plenty of folks happy to assuage us with "better" info and cause the rifts that satisfy their dreary lives so much.

We have a screenshot from www.october212015.com. I'm sure there is some unwritten law about the correctness of any information contained within a URL. On the other hand you may remember that 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah got his misspelled name from a contest entry that no one felt was important enough to spell check.

Back To The Future Day Any day is a great day to watch a BTTF flick, so whip out the trilogy today and imbibe it's time traveling goodness. While you're at it, don't forget that various iterations of the BTTF Trilogy were released as video games for systems spanning from the NES to the GameCube and various computer platforms. Watch the movies, track down some of the games, and enjoy the fact that no on has destroyed the BTTF franchise with a lame reboot.

Bck to the Future DeLorean BTTF Terminator When it comes to time travel, I'm more of a Terminator fan, but Marty's DeLorean is pretty cool too.
