    I just watched...oh wait , listened to the Radio Mystery Theater ' Through the looking Glass' Episode - http://www.oldtimeradiofans.com/temp...ystery_theater

    which is awesome, by the way, and highly recommended to many people here (read: everyone!)

    Cliff version - world is destroyed but time traveler w/ solar engine goes back to 1970? to fix what we've done

    I think I'm glad I broke my projector finally (classic radio shows are much better w/ out a picture than most of the crap these days)

    I think Elon might be from the future after listening to this one

    Michael Phelps - Swimmer
    Psy - Korean rapper
    Pussy Riot - Russian punk rock band
    Jon Stewart
    Undocumented Immigrants
    Malala Yousafzai - Pakastani blogger
    It's Time magazine. My money is on "Undocumented immigrants." The tip-off is that they didn't say "illegal".

    Further, about half the candidates make me want to release my dinner the wrong direction. Sad commentary.
