    (on the main page of yahoo! but I can't link it right now)

    I have 2 very common sense questions:

    Who do they think she'd be calling?
    How do they suppose the phone works with no towers or satellites?

    I saw Elvis in the background of "Titanic." He was dressed as a purser, and was running down the deck chasing a man who looked a LOT like Idi Amin.

    Time Traveler on Film????

    There's some footage here of it. The gist is that a woman was caught on tape in 1928 with what appears at first to be a cell phone. Wild.

    Seems other possible explanations are coming out now. It'll be fun to see where this goes.

    I saw that a few days ago when the filmmaker first posted the video. A woman walking along and shading her eyes from the sun is not a cell phone, even in 1927. If it was a time traveler, she could not use a cell phone without towers, and would not need a cell phone because they have universal implants that operate off of biorhythms to communicate.

    (Please do not ask me how something can operate off biorhythms, I stole it from a lame idea in an episode of Smallville.)

    If a time traveler was smart enough to invent a time machine, wouldn't they be smart enough to not use or be seen using a cell phone?

    The picture was very fuzzy and it was not, I repeat, not a cellphone. Time travel is a very stimulating idea but far from the realm of possibility. What has happened is over, yet the future is not set. Look at the original picture.
