Not being content with digging the worlds first underwater tunnel, building the worlds biggest ship or dragging England's sorry ass into the steam age with his Great Western rail network, Isambard Kingdom Brunel set his sights on a much grander target. Ever the public figure of ridicule, his latest fascination would shock even his loyalist of admirers, for he was to develop the worlds first ever time machine.
In true Victorian style he fashioned an awe inspiring machine out of copper and bits of lead piping. Nobody expected him to succeed, but they thought that about all of his endeavours. For years he locked himself away, a secluded genius working feverishly on the maths and physics to prove his doubters wrong.
It was on a cold Wednesday morning as the smog from the big smoke glowed an eerie orange, when an old acquaintance of Mr. Brunel's decided to check on his progress. But after a thorough inspection of his abode, the man everybody was laughing at was nowhere to be found.
All that remained was a note on a table next to his coughing and spluttering machine. It read:
"I have gone to seek new inspiration from the year 3012. I will be back in due course to once again make you eat humble pie"
