    Yesterday I first read about John Titor!

    It is an awesome story.
    If it's real, which some people believe, then it's absolutely fantastic (but old I reckon, it's all datd from 2000/2001)
    If it's fake which most people (including me) do believe, then his hoax is incredibly well made, and his scientific descriptions and explanations still stand.

    Did you know about it?
    Do you believe?

    Lol thats awesome, suprisingly there isn't alot of people doing this, assuming that this is a hoax because it's 2007 and everyone craves attention like a 4 year.

    Spent a little time on these sites: what ever happened to the civil war in the USA that he predicted for 2004/2005? Why didn't he know about Bush, his (and his juntas) stance on torture, eavesdropping on americans and breach of various other international laws? Couldn't find a single hint of a prediciton for Global Warming. And so it goes on and on and on...

    I have always been interested in time traveling so i've read about him some years ago. [​IMG]

    Well it's a nice story, but the facts he told seems different (maybe a different worldline as told on wikipedia).

    I don't he's real, but a time travel machine would be interesting. [​IMG]

    If anyone is interested in these things, check out this one too: Pellegrino Ernetti's Time Viewer (italian page is more complete but i think only a few of you can read it, however it's here [​IMG]).

    Actually, Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha is the host base for Headquarters, Strategic Air Command. The president was flown there on 9/11 for security. Also, President Clinton came and spoke in Kearney, NE back in the day and said that Kearney was once a candidate for the US Capitol. I don't know if there's any truth to that one though.

    Ya this is old news but unless you had specifically looked for it or used the net alot around 2000-01 you probably wouldn't have seen anything about it.
    Its just a very well done hoax, like lots of stuff online. The subject matter appeals to so many people its inevitable it would create believers and followers.

    This guy is a nut job, but it was a great hoax. I'll eat my words in 2036 if he's real ... but regardless ...

    If you actually do some digging and find copies of the original posts, and I mean the ORIGINAL posts, they are full of grammatical and spelling errors. There are tons of inconsistencies ... they were all cleaned up later.

    For people interested in other time-related things, Google "Time Cube" or check out www.timecube.com ... that's a fun one too. Halfway through the page there's a link to an anti-Jewish rant. There's a video of the Time Cube "discoverer" debating with MIT students somewhere. That's a blast to what too.

    Whoah, brings back memories.

    I think beyond the hoax was a guy who wanted to share his vision of a perfect world with the rest of the forum users. Like, how after "the war", everyone goes back to living kibboutz-style. Notice how he also criticizes our current period as if it was the worst ever (because all of humanity's past was a shining example of peace, love, free trade and democracy except for the 21st century, lol).

    Some lonely guy did this. End of story.

    EDIT : w00t 700th post already.

    "Australia successfully repels a Chinese invasion." [​IMG] Yep, a country with a population of about 20 million and a tiny army would repel a country with a population of over a billion and the biggest army in the world.
