To make a point on programming and its various intricacies, YouTube star Tom Scott introduces us to a tourist attraction we can’t believe exists.
It’s called the Limite Zero, and it sits in Spain. Well, it also sits in Portugal. In either case, it’s a zip line attraction that will get you from Point A to Point B by also saving you a great deal of time.
Scott features in the video below and explains the difficulty in programming in the real world. To prove his case he takes off in one country and time zone and arrives momentarily in another country and time zone, having a negative amount of time in flight.
There is no need to bother with the whole time travel nonsense. Just like watching “Back to the Future,” it’s best to just watch and enjoy.
Limite Zero beats transforming a DeLorean into a time machine or attempting to find a TARDIS laying around.
With a little courage and 18 EUR (or about $19.60), you can go back in time about an hour, minus your travel time. You will land invigorated and with one heck of a story to regale your friends with back at home.
As you can see from the above Scott video, you will actually save money when you consider the cost per second of the ride, because as the website notes, you will go from Sanlucar de Guadiana, Spain, and then travel a matter of 720 meters into Alcoutim, Portugal.
You will have become an Internationally renowned zip liner who can magically pass through to another time zone with incomparable panache and flare.
