Hello peeps. Yes, I'm alive but not so well, been floored by the flu for the past few days, distracted by work, tonight's engagement soiree, making cup cakes and well . . other things. . you know how it goes.
Not so much a fuckwit unless he's completely insane and the jury may be out on that one but I've been discussing conspiracy theories with a friend and this one caught my eye:
Independent filmmaker George Clarke claims to have found images of a time traveler caught on film on a DVD version of Charlie Chaplin's 1928 film "The Circus." In the opening moments of a video on the finding, Clarke said that the scene, in bonus footage included on the DVD, has been
"screened this to about 100 people at a film festival I run here in Belfast, and nobody could give me an explanation."
We would have to say, they were not trying very hard. Clarke added, "Right now the only conclusion I can come to, which sounds absolutely ridiculous I'm sure to some people, but it's a time traveler."
An obvious explanation is a hearing aid. Hearing aids were introduced around that time. Perhaps it was a walkie-talkie. Or perhaps the person was just talking to herself.
Additionally, even without explaining the issue, how could anyone use a cell phone in the 1920s? There were no cell phone towers back then. And if there were, the roaming charges would have been brutal!
Of course, it's possible it is a time traveler caught on film: the person could have come from so far in the future that they don't need cell phone towers. Or perhaps it was an alien talking back to her mothership on a communicator (meaning this could be video evidence of a UFO back in the '20s!).
At any rate, take a look at his video, and decide for yourself.
Nah, he's a nutter . . . it's a guy with an hearing amplifier!
