fazookus: Remember a few weeks ago when a tunnel boring machine hit something underground that it couldn't cut through? Similar wackos thought it could be a UFO!!!What is wrong with people like that? Not, say, " maybe it's a piece of metal", but a vehicle from another (whatever, planet, solar system, galaxy, time) without any possible rational reason to think that.Hey, did you know that there's a radio thing in Alaska that caused earthquakes in Haiti?We are a stupid people, on average.
Baron Harkonnen: I'll have to make sure to go back in time to remind my past self not to drop that watch when I traveled back to participate in a Ming Dynasty burial.But if I go back in time to remind myself not to drop the watch and change history by not dropping it, there will be no reason to go back in time to remind myself not to drop the watch, so I will have dropped the watch after all, so I'll have to go back in time to remind myself not to drop the watch...
sid244: 1. Carbon date the watch.2. Post results.3. Collective cheer or moan, depending on the results.
Rindred: Came here expecting ImNotSayingItWasAliensBut.jpg with the ring Photoshopped onto his finger, leaving disappointed.

give me doughnuts: rnatalie: There was a story (Larry Niven?) where a former civilization left one of their digital watches that was found in an archeological dig.Doesn't sound like a Niven story.It does remind me of some stuff in "Strata", though:Workboots left in a coal seam...Dinosaur skeleton with a sign that said "End nuclear testing!"...

unlikely: Look at this. It's worthless. Ten dollars from a vendor in the street. But I take it, I bury it in the sand for a thousand years, it becomes priceless! Like the Ark. Men will kill for it; men like you and me.
Oldiron_79: FlashHarry: yep. there's no way that's a 16th century watch. early 20th century, more like.This.
