EighthundredmillionthFarker: Except for one major mistake: He's still clutching his Xbox controller.


And 3d goggles. But they pass off well are contemporary fashion.

Could it be a Michigan or Minnesota shirt?

shadows are off compared to the man with the hat next to him, or behind him in the pic which leads me to believe one thing, this picture was shot with a crappy imitation Kodak camera most likely using inferior film which lead to the shadow distortion and displacement.

If you really want to play around with time travel. Start getting in to video editing. Pretty fun. For starters, edit clips together with dissolve transitions and make small adjustments to the speed at which a clip plays. hea hea hea....

If it is real, isn't it plausible that the shirt is a knit of some kind and not a print? Since the link is farked, is there any other evidence besides the Captain Letterman shirt? Is there a modern picture of the same dude playing Tekken or giving the shocker sign at a Eagles game?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. An agent is being dispatched and this chain of events will be removed from this timeline.

Unfortunately none of you will have any recollection of this, so there's really no point in telling you not to leave home on August 7th, 2016.

Umokay: am i the only person who really liked 12 Monkeys? I seem to remember it being somewhat of a joke, but I can't recall. I watched it the other day for the first time in a long time. It was much better than I remembered it being.


12 monkeys is on the approved FARK list of things that are acceptable to like. One of my favorite threads was a time traveling thread where we were discussing 12 monkeys, BTTF, etc

if you could send somebody back to kill Hitler, but only at the cost of introducing hipster douches to the world 50 years earlier, would you?

You probably ought not.

Check out that douchey goatee

1. No one else is wearing sunglasses
2. His look like welder's eye protection, maybe he needed them to protect the eyes from the flux capacitors...fluxxxing
 
2010-03-22 10:56:57 PM  
Looks like he's carrying one of these. (^) Specifically the Model B autographic variant.

Can someone post the original so we can know what the big deal is? Servers are down.
 
2010-03-22 10:57:35 PM  
It was just 1941 Dr. Tran
 
2010-03-22 10:57:36 PM  
The coat looks very old (like a leather bomber-type jacket with rough wool inside). The shirt underneath could be anything.

Sunglasses existed back then too, and they were really crappy and bulky at the time. He's not clean-shaven and has bad hat hair, so he sticks out when next to all those other stiffs. Hey, there were slobs in the 1940's too.

The fact that his shirt was probably knit proves that he is a time traveler. He wouldn't have been able to get a knit shirt like that except from the past around the time the photo was taken. So he had to go back in time to procure the shirt.

Have we established whether or not the letter on his shirt is an M or a W yet?

Shadow from the time traveler's ear is apparent

It looks like he has big dumbo ears that stick out pretty far

It's almost like people back then were like people now.

That's just impossible. Must be time travellers.

Its M for Marsha

Willis13: TexasPeace: What's with the big "W" on his shirt?

Is he some kind of superhero?

I'm no genius, but that would appear to be a "M", not a "W"


Well, I guess we know who's a time traveler and who isn't.

Godwin's Law of Time Travel. I wouldn't do it because it would cause Nazis. No, hipster Nazis to take over the world.

So I guess this is proof that they finally got the LHC up to full power and use it.

We never see any time travelers because they all discover it's a huge mistake. This is also why your friend at the lab suddenly looked about a year older recently.

that looks very similar to a federal govt. office I worked in in the '80s. I even had an adding machine that must have weighed twenty pounds.

Take it easy on the kid, everybody kills Hitler on their first trip. I did. It always gets fixed within a few minutes, what's the harm?
