I want names.. who set this to go live?!
2003-04-23 06:55:32 PM  
It's quite possible. A man named Randall Stevens did the same thing in 1966. Went to banks throughout Maine, withdrew funds, then disappeared off the face of the earth.

/I hope

ahh Mal, ya made me do it.. i didn't want to...
2003-04-23 08:10:00 PM  
May as well face it, he really was from the future, and he went back. Simple as that.

"I wish I could go back to the beginning of the season, put some money on the Cubbies"
2003-04-23 08:18:31 PM  
Do you suppose he needs a guy who knows how to get things?
2003-04-23 08:47:02 PM  
I saw this movie! He's just going back to K-Pax.
2003-04-23 08:55:09 PM  
This is heavy.
2003-04-23 09:24:26 PM  
DrToast, like...say..Rita Hayworth?
2003-04-23 09:25:50 PM

2003-04-23 09:26:15 PM  
Went to take a shiat and pigs ate her...probably...

Damn indeed
2003-04-23 09:28:08 PM  
He did not disappear. I just saw him this afternoon. He was hanging out at the local gas n sip with Elvis and Jimmy Hoffa.

Nowadays we use the phrase "Hanging with Osama and Saddam.".
2003-04-23 09:31:08 PM  
It's not a question of where he is. It's a question of when he is.
2003-04-23 09:31:47 PM  
funny, i smell a a new batch of time travel related satire.
2003-04-23 09:33:46 PM  
There WERE no banks in Maine in the 1960's. Residents of Maine instead kept their money at various York Steak House outlets. They would get in line to make a deposit of withdrawal, and were given giant plastic stand-up number teepees until their waitress/teller was ready.

Opps misread..

2003-04-23 09:38:03 PM  
You mean to tell me that some guy who never existed, has simply vanished?

Will wonders never cease?
2003-04-23 09:38:20 PM  
Man, that was so incredibly "wink-wink"

"Back to the future?"
2003-04-23 09:40:32 PM  
Did he take the money with him?
2003-04-23 09:43:11 PM  
not a spooky as my story. get this: i was sent here from the present.
2003-04-23 09:44:23 PM  
Sounds like a bunch of hibbity-dibbity to me.
2003-04-23 09:46:18 PM  
That was against the constitution jailing future people...I believe that future people have rights too.

2003-04-23 09:46:26 PM  
I wonder if anyone in this thread is actually taking this (even the least bit) seriously... weekly world news, anyone?

Snopes isn't even necessary with them :P
2003-04-23 09:47:33 PM  
I disappeared once................
2003-04-23 09:49:14 PM  
Oh, ko! Let's chase him ... in the future!
2003-04-23 09:49:41 PM  
I was thinking of him today actually, quaint odd.
2003-04-23 09:53:28 PM  
He went back to January 12, 1969 and laid 10 large on the Jets -8.
2003-04-23 09:56:03 PM  
well....wasnt he from somewhere 50 years forward or something? lets get out the statute of limitations book....figure out from the birth date he gave upon arrest when he will be born....if he still can be arrested for the crime by then....go get the mini-me version of him....hows that for a forward thinking solution?
2003-04-23 09:56:28 PM  
Five years from now, FARK buys CNN.
We can dream...
2003-04-23 09:59:46 PM

The number of people who don't get that the WWN is intentional satire depresses me.

He Works for Chronoworx Corporation..

On a related note, why do I have to highlight text on WWN articles to read seems they like to use black text on a black background for some reason...maybe has something to do with black helicopters or the Men In Black, perhaps?

Or maybe they designed the control panel of Hotblack Desiato's spaceship? (the one that was to be shot into the sun)

How about that...obscure references to Star Trek: Voyager and HHGTTG in one comment???
2003-04-23 10:53:07 PM  
We should pass a law saying there is no statute of limitations on what he did.

Of course that may prevent him form doing the crime to begin with so he we would have no need to pass a law in the first place, so its obvious that we didn't pass the law, so never mind.
2003-04-23 10:55:36 PM  
Anyone click on Squirrel with Large Nuts link. Go to the Next Legend at the bottom.. And i was shocked when it said dear old Saddam Hussein had been in a gay porn movie awhile back doing very raunchy acts.. Ewww Eww, But can anyone say "blackmail" someone must have that gay porn tape..

/Ugh, cant think of saddam getting it on with another dude.. he's soo very hairy. Yuck.. Interesting read indeed. I say you check it out..
