Photos from the Museum of Bralorne Pioneer Museum Canadian province of British Columbia blew up the Internet. By early May, the number of links it has come to a half million. And it's just a month after revealing photos of curious citizens.
The guy in dark glasses aroused the suspicion of millions of Internet users, since his whole appearance, from hairstyles to clothing does not correspond to the beginning of the 40s …
At the end of the article, see online videos: in 1925, the mobile phone.
The original image, which has become almost the most replicated in the world, posted on the website of the museum as an exhibit virtual exhibition Their Past Lives Here («Their past lives here"). What is represented? The event is tentatively in 1941 — the opening of the provincial Bridge (South Fork Bridge), which was built to replace washed away by flood. Additional points of concentrate is a young man. Actually, he attracted the interest of the Internet community. His extraordinary view. It, the community, not all, of course, but the best part, decided that this young man is obviously not from the time in which reside the surrounding. And from the future. And give him a haircut, t-shirt with printed logo, sweater, stylish cut, portable camera and sunglasses models of the XXI century. Like, this outfit 70 years ago in Canada certainly was not.
To heighten the credibility of the newspaper even printed portraits of "the millionaire of the future."
Snapshot examined by experts. Subjected to computer analysis, which by comparison of questionable background and the object helps determine whether or not an photoshop. Traces of "imprinting" is not found. That is "foreign body" now. And this same young man really was among the crowd at the time of shooting. That, according to enthusiasts, says only one thing: time travel is possible. And it's encouraging.
While some speculated on what machine the time visitors come from, from which presumably the year and, more importantly, why, others expressed doubts. Suspicious skeptics began to examine a young man with a magnifying glass, still trying to find signs of compliance in 1940. Camera? "Kodak", for example, has already released quite a while portable models — folding, in which the lens extends like an accordion. It seems that in the hands of the "traveler" something like that. But what specifically do not see it.
Sweater could tie my mother or grandmother. While almost all knitting. Rate cut — how it really modern — again difficult. The entire circuit is not visible.
Sunglasses … Of course, men 70 years ago, they are almost worn. And if it were, it is not like that. Look at the rest of the crowd — more than any man in dark glasses.
But the model itself … The "suspect" sunglasses with leather straps on the bow — with triangular elements, closing the eyes from wind and side beams. Experts claim that these structures were already in the late 30's of the last century with climbers. By the way — they are climbers — and knitted sweaters revered.
Invincible difficulty caused jersey — apparently cotton and printed with logo. Counterparts at the time found. There were only a sweater and knit again with attached logos.
Outcome: out of those who saw the mysterious picture and responded to the forums, about 60% believe that the guy — from the future. About 20 percent do not see it as anything unusual. Although they acknowledge that the suspect looks like a freak. The rest did not know what to think.
I — THE YEAR OF 2256
In December 2002, FBI agents arrested in New York 44-year-old man on suspicion of cheating. Like, playing at the stock exchange, he used insider information. That is, having entered into a criminal conspiracy with the managers of the companies selling shares received from their trading information. Thanks to that and had a big financial success.
Owning the "seed capital" of $ 800, the accused for two weeks already earned 350 million. He made 126 deals — a very dangerous, but who ultimately became incredibly profitable. This caused suspicion of the Commission for the Securities Market United States (SEC).
Arrested himself as Karlsin Andrew (Andrew Carlssin). He denied the charges in a criminal conspiracy. And said he had worked alone. And the information received from … the future. Where, in fact, came to us in a time machine. Started out in 2256.
Such is the brief history of the "millionaire's from the future", which for the first time appeared in the middle of March 2003. On it is written the tabloid Weekly World News (WWN). And even quoted one of the scientists. He said that, of course, does not believe fables about the time machine. But his efforts to find a mention of a man named Andrew Karlsin failed. Like, there is no evidence that it existed until December 2002 …
Later, the story was on the news portal Yahoo. And she went for a walk on thousands of websites and blogs without the mention of the original source. Numerous forums were full of responses. Including from brokers on Wall Street. Their essence was to ensure that, even possessing inside information, you can not earn as much. So Karlsin not lying, that came from the future.
Chances are that the WWN just invented the whole story. In fact, the publication of such jokes and known. That's only believed in the reality of Andrew Karlsin did not know about. And considered the primary source of news sites.
The story, by the way, is continuing. But WWN has nothing to do with it does not matter. Someone else says, as if arrested for bail of one million dollars. He was released from prison and, of course, disappeared. And now, you will not believe, takes refuge in Canada — in the very province in which the picture has got "a guy from the future."
And just as strange: the site Weekly World News has disappeared from Andrew Karlsin. He's not on Yahoo News. All items are preserved only in copies. And this creates a terrible suspicion suddenly tabloid not lied? With him this happened …
And I — FROM 2036-ho!
The name of John Titor (John Titor) has been known since 2 November 2000. Then he first appeared on the Time Travel Institute — Online enthusiasts and theorists of wandering in time. Went by the nickname TimeTravel_0. And he wrote on March 2001. Then he disappeared.
John said that in 2000 he was passing through. Stopped to see relatives on the way "home" — in 2036.
Titor himself as an American soldier involved in a military project to move in time. He said that he was sent in 1975 for the IBM 5100 computer. Like, he took the road to decipher computer codes, as supported programming languages APL and BASIC.
"American Soldier" sprinkled in the post physical definitions relating to time travel, answered questions. And reported to have been that important happened to have lived through them the future.
He "remembered" that in 2004, the U.S. Civil War began. And ended with a nuclear world war. In 2015, Russia started the attack and defeated all, including the European Union and China. Then came the world. And instead of the United States appeared AFI — The U.S. Federal Empire.
It seems that John goof by 100 percent. But those who believed in him "inovremennoe" appearance, fell short of even that I get on. Like, time lines can be many. In that related to John untwisted events exactly as he described. We just went on the other line.
A wanderer information on account IBM 5100 were accurate. Experts say the details about this machine that Titor said in 2000, became known only in 2007. This strengthens the position of "soldier." And destroys what he said lightly, though in 2036 is not a digital camera, and the film.
Nevertheless, thousands of Internet users trust Titorov when corresponding with him. Many believe until now. So what? In fact a lot of people who want to journey through time to become a reality.
