Angry People Looking For Time Travel

A while back I wrote what I thought was a humorous post about some odd trading in the stock market being proof of time travel.  Evidently not everyone thought it was funny. Here is a comment I received.

You’re clearly an idiot for thinking this, also if you’re saying this as a joke, you’re not funny.

I have no idea why this frustrated me enough to have to come up with a fake emial and write some **** down, but it has

So here is the funny part:  I wondered, “how did this person find my site?”  I mean he seemed pretty upset with the fact that I’m either a) an idiot or b) not funny.  It turns out he came from Google and was looking for “proof of time travel”. I’m afraid my post didn’t meet his needs.

Now I have no idea who this person is, but all I can picture is uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite who bought a time machine off eBay. Somewhere there is someone who is trying to find a way to go back in time to save his high school football game.  As he desperately searches the Internet he somehow ends up on my website and is filled with rage!

Proof of Time Travel?

On Tuesday, March 11th, 2008, somebody made one of the craziest bets Wall Street has ever seen. The mystery figure spent $1.7 million on a series of options, gambling that shares in the venerable investment bank Bear Stearns would lose more than half their value in nine days or less.

And it worked.  In less than a week, the trader turned his money into over a quarter of a billion dollars.  Funny thing is, no one knows who did it.

Some unimaginative types consider this to be a case of insider trading, but I prefer to think it proves the existence of time travel.

Eventually this post made it to the front page of Google for “proof of time travel”  and some people reading the page were quite angry for one reason or another. So in order to help fill the Internet with useful information and keep from getting flamed by people looking for better proof, I’ve included the incidents below that are often considered proof of time travel.

Swiss Watch In Tomb

In 2008 during the excavation of a 400 year old sealed tomb in Shangsi Town, China a chunk of dirt was knocked off and landed with a metallic sound. Upon investigation it was discovered that there was a Swiss ring watch in the dirt. The watch was supposedly of a make that wouldn’t be developed until hundreds of years after the tomb  had been sealed.

Cell Phone in Charlie Chaplin

In one of Charlie Chaplin’s movies called The Circus, a lady walks past and she appears to be talking on a cell phone. It seems plausible that there may be a different explanation for her behavior–especially when you consider that if you go back in time with a cell phone, it probably wouldn’t be particularly useful before the infrastructure is built to support making calls, but if she is a traveler from the future, who knows what type of amazing device she might be holding.

I’m just glad to see that in the future people aren’t walking around like idiots talking to themselves with invisible earpieces embedded in their ear.

Below is the video of the woman from the movie.

Bridge Opening Photograph

There is an old photo from the re-opening of a bridge in 194 where one of the people looks like they are dressed in a style  that post dates when the photograph was taken. The caption reads: Reopening of the South Fork Bridge after flood in Nov. 1940. 1941

Here is a close up of the man that seems dressed a bit out of his time period.

Time Portal Under Sink

This guy claims he crawled under his sink and just kept going.  He stood up and met himself as an older man.  He shot some video with his phone with “himself” and they both show that they have the same tattoo. Update: I’m told that this is actually an advertisement for mutual funds or retirement planning, so I guess we can’t count this as proof.

If you’ve made it this far, you are probably very interested in time travel. According to this article, it is impossible. However, if we’ve learned anything from history, we should know that you have to be very careful what you say is impossible.
