1. Time Traveller Caught on Film in Charlie Chaplin movie– or Pareidolia?

    YouTube user yellowfeverbelfast posted a video with a purported-perhaps-maybe-possibly butch or male time traveler in drag holding a mobile phone at a Chinese Theatre debut for a Charlie Chaplin film:

    Service sucks with AT&T when you are in the same time period and next to a tower. Must blow when there are no cell towers and well, they have not been invented yet. Then again, if this is a time traveler he or she may have a iPhone 5G. Going on a journey through space and time? There’s an app for that.

    Or, its pareidolia which as Wikipedia breaks it down: “a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant.”

    A few months ago a photo found at a museum was dubbed to be a shot of a time traveler and it was thoroughly debunked on the blog forgetomori.

    Back in the day when people talked to themselves they were not wearing a bluetooth headset: they were crazy. Any old lady yammering on the street today by herself? That goes unnoticed. Even today in New York.

    Besides, if any time traveler visits Charlie Chaplin I expect him have some interesting fashion sense. Possibly a long scarf.
