Any excuse to resurrect the John Titor thread is a good one. Though the guy shot his cell phone video into the sun where their features are silhouetted against the light. There are tons of holes to pick through this.

Also, this leads to a YouTube hole of great depth, so be careful.

Time Traveler Visits Himself In Future, Records It On His Phone

The Time Traveler Who [allegedly] Recorded Himself In The Future On His Cell Phone

In this video a man named Hakan Nordkvist claims to have visited himself in the future.

Like something from Narnia – whilst fixing plumbing under his sink Hakan crawls deeper into the cupboard to reach some ‘hard-to-reach’ pipes and before he realises what has happened discovers that he has entered “another world”.

He claims to have seen himself as an older man at around 70-years-old.

Luckily, he had his mobile handy with him to film the whole thing. In the video you see him standing there with his alleged older self. They laugh and look at the camera. Eerily, they both have the exact same tattoo on their arms.

Take a look at the video and let us know what you think.

My sleep number is whatever will get the good barflys to go home with me.

Easy... my sleep number's either 69, 420 or 3.  The End.

It's because of the UV exposure!  Ugh, my skin is like leather.


I'm sure all the Trust Fundies... is that what they're called?  Whatever they are... I'm sure they help a whole bunch.



Actually heard at a party: "What's your sleep number?"  That'll age you 10 years right there.

yeah, i know it's not real, but i wanted to read up on what other people had experienced because its a new phenomenon to me.  there's always the interest for me, like, well, i know that's probably bullshit, but what really *is* happening to these freaks then?


Here's my guess:

LSD + Accidentally wander into a Sock-hop = whoaaaaaa man, I'm freakin' out!

Ho ho! I'm going off outdated information.

Where's the ice burn gif?

So: time is relative to each person. OOoooOOOo...


I dunno... I forgot it in my haste to post this.  I was really feeling stupid for half the day, but I was almost positive that I'd read about a clock experiment with a building and a water tower somewhere and since Brief History of Time is really the only layman's book I've pored over, I figured it had to be in there that I read about it.

Chapter 2!!

Did you know, for instance, that the further away from the center of the Earth an object is, the slower time moves for that object?  So time is moving microscopically slower for you at the top of a tall building or in an airplane 30,000 feet in the air than it would be for some shmuck getting a tan at sea level.


Bzzt! Wrong answer. Time does not "move more slowly" based on your relative position to the Earth.


Bzzt!  Wrong retort!  I was fucking right (sort of)!  Although I got the effects confused, time does move differently based on your position, Mr. Smartypants.
 
Quote from: MC Hawking drops knowledge, bitch.

Another prediction of general relativity is that time should appear to be slower near a massive body like the earth. This is because there is a relation between the energy of light and its frequency (that is, the number of waves of light per second): the greater the energy, the higher frequency. As light travels upward in the earth’s gravitational field, it loses energy, and so its frequency goes down. (This means that the length of time between one wave crest and the next goes up.) To someone high up, it would appear that everything down below was taking longer to happen. This prediction was tested in 1962, using a pair of very accurate clocks mounted at the top and bottom of a water tower. The clock at the bottom, which was nearer the earth, was found to run slower, in exact agreement with general relativity. The difference in the speed of clocks at different heights above the earth is now of considerable practical importance, with the advent of very accurate navigation systems based on signals from satellites. If one ignored the predictions of general relativity, the position that one calculated would be wrong by several miles!

Newton’s laws of motion put an end to the idea of absolute position in space. The theory of relativity gets rid of absolute time. Consider a pair of twins. Suppose that one twin goes to live on the top of a mountain while the other stays at sea level. The first twin would age faster than the second. Thus, if they met again, one would be older than the other. In this case, the difference in ages would be very small, but it would be much larger if one of the twins went for a long trip in a spaceship at nearly the speed of light. When he returned, he would be much younger than the one who stayed on earth. This is known as the twins paradox, but it is a paradox only if one has the idea of absolute time at the back of one’s mind. In the theory of relativity there is no unique absolute time, but instead each individual has his own personal measure of time that depends on where he is and how he is moving.

Careful. Delve too deep in to that shit and you'll start peeing on park benches and humping chihuahuas.

I recommend "The Dancing Wu-Li Masters". That'll get you in-the-know of physics without castrating your frontal lobe.

Yeah, I figured I probably fucked something up there... I'll have to look at my books again when I get home tonight.
