I doubt they could survive 300 miles out to sea without a liferaft. Maybe they will just have to slide wearing those "water wings" or something. =) > Second, why did the bullet get sucked up?

Her wormhole was set to suck up everything that went through it in the first place. This includes the bullet.

Now a nit-pick from another post (don't remember who wrote it): I don't see why it would be so far-fetched for her to be able to use her timer as a tracking device. After all, her's was bigger so their could be more functions on it... Not just a time. I mean HP calculators do more than just add numbers.

Now that they have whats-her-names timer part. The one that lands them anywhere within 400 miles of where they started. Yeah, new sets, but imagine 300 miles out to sea. Or, up in the mountains. Second, why did the bullet get sucked up? Yes, she fired it after the gate was opened, but big deal. Quin kisses the girls and shakes hands after the portal is open and nothing bad happens. Lastly, (wheh) the scientists must have seen all the Kromags sliding. Whats to say that whats-her-name won't slide in on the kromags thinking its Quin and everybody. What do you think? What's her name? Ferris

Besides, to enjoy any fiction you have to suspend disbelief for awhile. -Jeff.

Who says the 400 mile radius is lateral across the Earth's surface. What about up and down along the "Z" axis? Outer space or underground?

Ok, but how about not infinite, were not looking back and forth in time, but from second to second on an infinite number of worlds (which they can then get coordinates) can monitor sliders by size, type of device used and mass of materials moved. That would be a plot twist. > > >Now a nit-pick from another post (don't remember who wrote it): I don't >see why it would be so far-fetched for her to be able to use her timer as >a tracking device.

They would have to make a case for detection capabilities in the little device to monitor all slides. The lab was monitoring (what was it???) neutrinos. Come on, can't see it on a device that small. Someone else said that the show seems to sliding down to that 5th grade level where they say it and it works. Ferris

For example, the S.F. coordinate is always constant, but there's some randomizer that allows for a tolerance of coordinates less than an earth distance of 400 miles from S.F. By the way, Could they "land" 400 feet in the air? In the ground? Erich Of course, everything I say could be totally wrong....
