In the DVD extras of Chaplin's "The Circus", people were given access to a short film and photos of the movie's premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in 1928.
…in which appears a person seemingly talking on a cellphone has convinced many people that time travel is real as there were no cell phones during 1928.
Some raised the prospect that this person was actually using an ear trumpet but this does not explain why the woman appears to be laughing and talking into the device.
2. Compact Disc Case in the 1800s
A painting from the 1800s shows of a man holding what looks like a fancy CD box.
The earliest form of plastic wasn’t invented until the mid-1800s, and (obviously) Compact Discs weren’t in use until the 1980s.
A Time Traveler???
3. Hit and run victim from the past
In mid-June 1950 a man in his early thirties named Rudolph Fentz wearing 19th century clothes was hit by a car and killed at New York City's Time Square.
The subsequent investigation by a NYPD policeman revealed that the man had disappeared without trace in 1876 in the age of 29.
The items in his possession were
• a copper token for a beer
• a bill for the care of a horse and the washing of a carriage
• a letter from 1876
• 70 dollars and business cards
all without any signs of aging pointing that the man had traveled through time from 1876 to 1950 directly.
4. The Montauk Project conspiracy
The Montauk Air Force Station reportedly has an interdimensional tunnel in its subterranean laboratory that allowed scientists to travel back to 1943.
This conspiracy circulated with two men, the author Preston B. Nichols and Al Bielek in the 1980s, when they had begun to "recover repressed memories of working in the lab".
5. Time travelling hipster
A photograph from 1941 during South Fork Bridge reopening in Gold Bridge, Canada was alleged to show a time traveler.
It was claimed that his clothing, logo printed T-shirt, sunglasses and holding a portable camera were modern and not of the styles worn in the 1940s.
Over the years, he has come to be known as the ‘time travelling hipster’
6. The Philadelphia Experiment, 1943
The Philadelphia Experiment is a naval military experiment that is said to have been carried out by the U.S. Navy at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, sometime around October 28, 1943.
It is alleged that the U.S. Navy destroyer escort USS Eldridge was to be rendered invisible to enemy devices and teleported from Pennsylvania to Virginia.
Some reports allege that the warship travelled back in time for about 10 seconds. However, popular culture has represented far bigger time jumps.
7. Sir Victor Goddard flight to future
in 1935, Sir Victor Goddard, a British Royal Air Force officer was flying a plane over an abandoned airfield at Drem, Edinburgh.
During his returning journey over the Drem airfield, he was shocked when he looked down to see the airfield had been completely renovated and was now in use and the mechanics in blue overalls walking around and four yellow planes parked on the runway.
Four years later in 1939, The Royal Air Force began to paint their planes yellow and the mechanics uniforms were switched to blue.
8. Evidence of time travel in Chinese tomb?
In December 2008, Chinese archaeologists allegedly removed the opening of a giant coffin within what was believed to be an undisturbed, 400-year old Si Qing tomb in Shangsi County.
As they removed the soil around the coffin, however, they were shocked and amazed to find a small piece of metal shaped like a watch, with the time frozen at 10:06. “Swiss” was engraved on the back.
If the tomb was truly undisturbed for 400 years, what could explain the existence of this modern artifact? An absent-minded time traveler!!!
