It is going to be the fact you only need to reach 85 MPH in order for the flux capacitor to enable time travel. Also, it only requires 1.19 "jigawatts".
When I die, I want people to look at me and say "Yeah, he might have been crazy, but that was one zarkin frood that knew where his towel was."
It's probably as Earthshaking as anything at a TeX conference is likely to be.

Maybe in the context of a TeX user group it is. IMO it's anyway only certain niches that still have a need for (or are accustomed to) the TeX ecosystem, everyone else is well served by standard word processors and layout/design apps.
