I too remember "Berenstein". A also remember Mandela dying in the late 90s. Billy Graham died in the early 2000s as well as I remember my very
religious mother breaking down and crying over it, which seemed to me blowing it out of proportion.
Also, I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I remember another space shuttle exploding after the Challenger did, in 2000 or 2001. I believe it
was called the Columbia? There was a crew on board and it exploded as it was leaving Earth's atmosphere. Hardware malfunction or manifold breach or
something. They didn't reach space. Did that happen in this timeline, or was it just different?
BUT SOMEBODY MENTIONED PEOPLE FROM OTHER TIMELINES! So.... Guys and gals... I have a story that happened to me.
My best friend is currently talking to a young woman in California whom I don't know, who is a waitress at a restaurant in San Jose. She was telling
him about a peculiar elderly guy who comes into her place of business regularly and orders blueberry pie (my favorite dessert) and has a coffee with
lots of cream. He is tall and lanky, a little on the skinny side.
He appears to be in his late sixties early seventies, and has short, grey, salt and pepper hair.
The man, apparently went by the name, Charles.
It literally means, "A Man" and is the perfect incognito. Trololol. I admit it's something I would pick.
She said she felt comfortable and chatted with him a little more than you would with most strangers, and was intrigued because he seemed a little
intentionally mysterious. My friend asked the lady friend for a description of this man, and he met my exact description. So much so that he called
and left me 2 voicemails that evening.
She said "He has a mole under his right ear, and a tattoo of a Fibonacci spiral on his left forearm. It's red, and has a blue square around it. He
walks with a cane that looks handmade and has stuff carved in it... Circles and stuff. He wears silver rings and likes to dress classy. Button up
dress shirts mostly, although sometimes he comes in looking like he had a rough night."
My friend jokingly mused that he might be a time traveler. The following day the old man comes in again and she says,
"My friend says you might be a time traveler. Crazy huh?"
The old man looks flustered and says "No, it's not." Then stands up and walks out...
Proceeds to spend the next 15 or 20 minutes pacing back and forth outside the restaurant.
He eventually leaves.
I'm only 25 now. But I do already have a bad back, and regardless, will probably walk with a can at 60...
The punchline is, whether they're messing with me or not... I have all those traits (The rings, the body build, the tattoo, the mole... and they still
behave as if it's true.)
They apparently have talked about it without me, and seem to believe this old man, "Charles", saved a lot of people in his timeline by stopping WW3,
and is now stuck here because he basically, created a pocket for himself. Not that I could take credit though. He claimed to be from a different
timeline after all. Considering Nature and Nurture I don't know what choices I'd make in another timeline.
But yeah, that happened. Just felt like sharing.
