Three points:

1) There is no such thing as a "Lie Detector." Polygraph machines don't "detect lies."

2) It's not a lie if YOU believe it.

3) None of his "revelations" is much of a stretch.

Thanks Obama.

So I'm sure he's buying lots of stock in that huge company that is about to take off.

I like how this article first says that electric cars will travel at 600 miles per hour, then later says electric cars will travel a distance of 600 miles on one charge. What the fark?

With one exception

[...]2028 - the same year time travel is made public

600 miles in one hour on a single charge.

I don't see what's so hard to believe about an electric car approaching Mach 1. Musk drove his car into space, after all.

It's not John Titor?

Obama was last seen forming a hit squad to go after this guy... can't let word of his secret time machine get out now, can we?

So much this. Their primary purpose is to be misunderstood by subjects who think they work and wind up confessing since they think they'll be found out.

Not one single John Titor reference?  Seriously?
 
2018-02-13 11:42:11 AM  
So he says he's from 2030 and he's in his 50s but just looks 25.

Where's his "now" self?

That is why he has to remain anonymous, duh.

Trump is re-elected and he comes back just to take a lie-detector test?

Obviously he is not following his actual orders...
 
2018-02-13 11:44:32 AM  
Well, some of his predictions, made just before the peak of the shiatcoin craze, seem suspect already.
 
2018-02-13 11:44:37 AM  
I assume he changed the timeline by coming back so everything he knows is irrelevant now.

His younger self is currently alive and well in 2018.  Find him, check finger prints and DNA, if they match, that proves it.

Ummm, you do know that his term runs from January 20th, 2017 to January 10th, 2021, right?  Even if he isn't reelected, he'll still be in office throughout all of 2020.

No, companies will achieve citizenship in 2022. Owning stock will be declared a form of slavery in 2023. In 2024, BP Oil successfully runs for senate, and later storms the presidential election in 2028. After that it's open season on anyone not "invested" in the growth of the company.

I see humanity ending once Big Corp. becomes sentient in 2040.

I passed every polygraph i ever had to take for my security clearance. I'm immortal, I'm superman and I'm batman too. Never lost any of my clearances.

after 3 straight, i never had to do another test, but everyone else did.

He didn't. Seth McFarlane is now playing the "Elon Musk" character for interviews and press events.

This never gets old for me. Maybe it's his steel-cold look of determination, that maybe, just maybe, his cardboard, duct tape & aluminum foil time machine will perhaps work. And when it does, shiat IS GOING TO GET REAL!

Time travel. We're seeing an Elon from the future.

It's not hard to answer questions falsely when there is no risk of negative consequences.

I had the pleasure, once, of informally interviewing for a job I didn't need. That was the most related I've been in an interview, and it went amazingly well.
