* {{Zeerust}}: Remember back in 2004, when we all had those self-driving, voice-activated cars that looked like this spaceships? Good times, good times. We also evidently had some sort of cartridge music player instead of tapes or [=CDs=]. Widescreen [=TVs=] a few years early, too! Mullets came back into style, too.

** Also, if you ''tried'' touching yourself from five ''minutes'' ago, you'd have a hard time making any one ''atom'' touch itself as atoms are [[CaptainObvious on the small side]]. There are ''millions'' in the width of a ''hair,'' their size is measured in ''fractions of nanometers.'' If you touched fingertips, the same atom wouldn't likely end up touching itself; if you were pushed into yourself from behind, that's the atoms from the front of your shirt touching the atoms from the back of your shirt - the same atoms are ''feet'' away, which may as well be light-years. ''Also'' also, if you ''could'' make the same atom touch itself, they are still not "occupying the same space," just, well, touching.

There are ''millions'' in the width of a ''hair,'' their size is measured in ''fractions of nanometers.'' If you touched fingertips, the same atom wouldn't likely end up touching itself; being a ''literal'' hair off would put any atom and its past self pretty far apart. This means the ''same'' matter still isn't touching itself. And if you were pushed into yourself from behind, forget it - that's the atoms from the front of your shirt touching the atoms from the back of your shirt - the shirt. The same atoms specific atoms' counterparts are ''feet'' away, which may as well be light-years. ''Also'' also, if you ''could'' make the same atom touch itself, they are still not "occupying the same space," just, well, touching.

* RippleEffectProofMemory: It's implied that this is a constant phenomenon; The TEC has the technology to detect "ripples" well before they impact the present, but unless an agent is sent to investigate, they'll never know precisely what changed - though their intelligence branches will often offer theories such as the Iranians trying to assassinate a President, someone trying to buy up pre-development Beverly Hills, etc. Agents returning the past often need to be reminded about current events. When Walker returns after [[spoiler:failing to prevent [=McComb=] from killing one of his business partners]], Matuzak isn't at all bothered when he tells Walker that [=McComb=] has come to power [[spoiler:and has no idea who Walker is talking about when he asks about Fielding, his turncoat partner]]. On the other hand, after Walker returns from [[spoiler:killing [=McComb=]]], Matuzak is rather baffled that his star agent is asking about a public figure who's been missing for a ''decade.''

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The TEC has its own in-house courtroom with an always-on-call judge, but no attorneys arguing for the defense or even the ''prosecution'', let alone a jury. And they conduct their own executions by sending convicts into the past at great heights. It's inferred that they [[AllCrimesAreEqual execute every suspect they catch]] within minutes of their return, as they don't have holding cells on-site. They probably only haul suspects back to headquarters as a manner of paperwork. One could HandWave this as a top-secret agency working above the GodzillaThreshold to police time, but their inability to offer leniency means that they can't really investigate crimes occurring in the past, just execute everyone they can prove isn't indigenous to the timeline.
