GhostTheory reader Ben sent me this link:
The image above is a still from Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film The Circus. In this frame, we see a person in the background holding what some say is a cellphone. Film maker George Clarke from Belfast was the first person to point this out (that we know of):
The Australian news site News.com.au, has already pointed out the fact that this could just be someone walking about with a hearing aid. That to me makes totally more sense than to jump the gun and assume that this person is a “time traveller” who has traveled back to 1928 and so happened to be able to use their cellphone. I have to agree with news.com.au on this one. It’s just a person with a hearing aid. One of those small bell-shaped horns people used to put up to their ears to amplify sound:
This theory of “Time Travelers” seems to be plausible to many people, I just don’t see how anyone could believe such thing. I mean say you really discovered how to travel through time. OK….. The best you can do is be a background character in some Charlie Chaplin movie no one really watches?
If it was me, I’d be dinning with the great Pharaohs of Egypt, throwing rocks at a brontosaurus head or maybe even putting a teenage Hitler in a chokehold. But Nooooo! These so-called ‘Time Travelers’ want to spend their travels through time and space walking around seeing if their cellphones get reception.
Can you hear me now? …..Hello?……
