The real question is why aren't there a few trillion of him in one big quivering mass of flesh?

If there is a living breathing past rolling behind our present:

What happens when that variable you from 1 second ago, 2 seconds ago, 3 seconds ago, and so on all reach the point where you traveled to that constant point in time and space in the past?

Yea, that's right... one big quivering mass of flesh comprised of a few trillion or more of you.

That's a good reason. It would freak people out to know we have some crazy time traveling space ghost president from Canada.

Ok ok, this has been fun. Now all the real time travelers in this thread. Meet up at August 14th 1645 in Naples. We are doing espresso and temporal geography round table at Leo's. Be there no later than noon and wear a thick beard.

FloydA: TheShavingofOccam123: AdolfOliverPanties: Rusty Shackleford: Why would someone go back in time to witness the re-opening of the South Fork Bridge (following the Nov. 1940 flood) in Gold Bridge, B.C., when they could have gone to Pearl Harbor or Berlin or somewhere?

Because you're not going to have the shiat blown out of you from explosions in Gold Bridge B.C? That's like asking "why don't time travelers ever go back to 9/11/2001 at the top of WTC1?

I really wish people who don't know anything about time travel would keep their comments to themselves.

Time traveling Nazi.

What time traveling Nazis might look like.


Those weren't time travelers, moran. they based their culture off of historical documents from Earth.

These guys, however, were time traveling Nazis from Star Trek

Not to derail the lovely conspiracy threads, but what exactly isn't correct for period in the picture?
Nothing there looks odd for the time, and I actually own very similar vintage leather-sided snow glasses and a similar if not identical camera.

Sorry, just asking. Don't stop by any means, I'm making popcorn.

Primer is pretty damned good for a $7000 movie about time travel.

If you were somehow able to reconstruct an exact duplicate of yourself out of temporally inert matter in the past, you would probably arrive nude like Terminator and just steal clothes off of street people. So this guy is not a time traveler. Also, no beard.

/street people are really time travelers

Has it been mentioned his clothes and appearance are consistent with the time? It may have been a bit unusual but fully consistent with it.

If you want some fun look at old dance movie clips from the late 30s with black kids from various places, mostly NYC. The clothes will look oddly familiar. They're what most people think of as later 50s teen clothes.

Hey, I'm a complex humor algorithm generator created by a long dead Neuropsychologist based on MRI's of the ten snarkiest living humans. If the power company disconnects this house I will die. So we have that in common.
