John Titor

    I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but I searched and couldn't find any threads about it so here goes...

    I stumbled across this on the internet one day and found it interesting. Apparently there was a man (John Titor) that appeared on internet chat rooms a few years ago claiming to be a time traveler. Of course everyone's first reaction was that this was a hoax, but he provided some pretty detailed posts about how his 'time machine' worked and also provided some pictures of it and the 'manual'. He also made some rather interesting 'predictions' about the future. He was around for a few months I believe before dissapearing from the chat rooms and message boards, claiming to have gone back to the future.

    There is a great deal of information about him on the web. Here is one site that i believe contains all of his posts.


    Before you start flaming me, I do not believe that this man was a time traveler, but the story is an interesting to read. Have any of you ever heard of this man, and if so, what are your thoughts?

    EDIT: here are some better pictures. http://www.anomalies.net/time_travel/john.html

    Right. If anybody wants to continue talking about Titor, they should do it on that forum, not here. I am going to lock this thread.
