    Okay ... this is going to keep me up all night.
    Right now they are replaying a Halloween Simpsons episode on a local station. One of the stories in the episode has Homer creating a time mashine out of a toaster. The part I'm wondering about is when he travels to a time where Ned rules the world. What is this a parody of? I know that I've seen it before, but I just can't place it.

    Well, according to SNPP--aka THE site for Simpsons fans--it's a cross between 1984 and Back to the Future II (dunno about the latter though). Here's the link (where you'll find all sorts of references):

    Interesting...
    That episode always reminds me of a Bradbury short story called "A Sound of Thunder"...
