*** Doc went forward in time enough to find the person who invented the mechanism that allow cars (and hoverboards) to fly, then stole the tech and maybe even killed the inventor - or paid them not to invent it. And that's why we didn't have hoverboards and flying car in the real 2015.

* The [=DeLorean=] only becomes covered in ice after time travel when it's going to the future. It's trying to show that it's been frozen in time until the destination. The doc then probably managed to stop this effect in later movies.

**** Incest and inbreeding isn't quite as dangerous as the 'redneck stereotype' suggests. If the family has been incorporating new genetic material on a fairly regular basis, even a brother and sister may not be incompatible enough yet to set off the woman's genetic viability detection system. Problems don't start to show up until incest has been pervasive for a few generations.

*** Doc appears in the second movie to recognize that this happens, because he insisted on going back to 1955 to fix the corrupted timeline immediately, even though the DeLorean's time circuits were acting up.

* Doc Brown made the deal with the Libyans to obtain plutonium in 1985. Perhaps the Libyans behind the Pan-Am Flight 103 originally planned to detonate a nuke aboard a plane and Doc cheating them set their timetable back 3 years.

* Here's the REAL FridgeHorror - Remember that scene where Biff is trying to date rape Marty's (future) mom? And George is supposed to stop it? Remember Biff tells him to shut the door and walk away? Okay, now remember the only reason he comes back is because Marty told him to fight for his woman? So what do you think happened in the original timeline when he was still a wuss? I thought of this AFTER I saw the movie back in the 80s, and why I can't watch it even now.
** Rest easy. In the original timeline, Marty wouldn't have been there to stage a groping, and Lorraine wouldn't have been parking in the first place. She'd have been inside with George, surrounded by other students, while Biff would still have been outside. Even if she WAS in the car, Biff didn't even see her at first; he was only after Marty, who was again not there in the original timeline. Crisis averted.

* In [[WesternAnimation/BackToTheFuture the animated series]], Marty gives his name as ComicBook/JimmyOlsen during one of the trips into the past, which might seem weird given Jimmy's somewhat joke-like reputation. Then you remember that by 1985, Jimmy was known as "[[ActionHero Mr. Action]]" and no longer needed Superman to bail him out quite so often, so Marty may have had an entirely different perspective on the character.
