Ten ways to prove time travel only exists to keep science fiction authors rich and famous.
The vanishing hotel.
Some people travelling through an unfamiliar country.It's night time and they pull off the signposted road to look for somewhere to sleep for the
night.It's 1979 and there isn't a Best Western or Holiday Inn on every corner,and there's no GPS so navigation is by torch light looking at a map in a
moving car.Roads in rural France almost certainly aren't signposted very well,if at all so it's a matter of chance if the road you're looking at on
the map is the one you're driving along.It's night time so there won't be any obvious visual clues to tell you where you really are,you drive into a
village and stop at a building you identify as a hotel or bed and breakfast.
The next morning you leave and resume your trip towards Spain.On the journey back you try to find the same hotel again,but it's been a couple of weeks
so it's exact location is now a distant and vague memory after a lot of miles of driving visiting other new places.
You can find the approximate place,but as with most countries all these small villages in one region tend to look the same with the same style of
architecture so it's only a guess if you're in the right one or not.
The missing photos bit.Most of the accounts of this miss out some important details about this.When the film was examined,some of the holes on either
side that engage with the toothed wheel inside the camera to pull the film through it were damaged (elongated),meaning the photos were not there
because of a simple film jam.This wasn't really common with film cameras,but certainly did happen.
The old style of architecture.Really? Buried in the depths of the French countryside it's proof of time travel because a hotel likes to blend in with
it's surroundings and doesn't have the all the mod cons a city centre hotel would have?
I stayed in a hotel in Northampton in England some years ago.I'm guessing it was probably used to be some sort of mental asylum as there were bars on
all the windows that looked like they'd been there for 100 years or more,it had VERY high ceilings and the dining hall wouldn't have looked out of
place on the set of Harry Potter or Oliver Twist.This was in the 1990s near to a big town in England,is this also proof of time travel?
The ghost of Marie Antoinette.
A nearby nobleman used to hold costume parties where his guests dressed up as figures from history.No time travel,they just stumbled into a fancy
The 400 year old watch.
This was a real style of Swiss made ring watch made and sold in the 20th century.But the lack of any other information regarding this such as any
names of the people involved,or even the location of the tomb where it was found means no time travel,just a good ol' fashioned hoax.
The un-disused airfield.
He flew over the airfield in 1935 when he says it was disused,while the history books say it was in use again from 1933 onwards.It had Hawker Harts
stationed there which as far as I can find out,where painted yellow in 1935.Victor Goddard (the pilot) was known for his ghost photos,and had too many
allegedly paranormal things happen to him to be seen as coincidence.
The Philadelphia Experiment.
This was never meant to make the ship invisible to the naked eye,we haven't even come remotely close to optical cloaking now so they certainly didn't
have it 70 years ago.Big metal warships with miles and miles of electrical cable with lots of electrical power flowing through them turned the ships
into massive permanent magnets that meant the ships were still magnetised even when the power was switched off.The Germans used torpedoes that could
home in on this magnetic signature,so they used massive degaussing coils (the same as was used in old fashioned cathode ray tube TV sets) to
demagnetise the ships hulls,making them invisible to the magnetic seeking torpedoes.It didn't travel in time,it didn't vanish from sight,it didn't
travel hundreds of miles in a few seconds and there never were members of the crew half buried in the deck plates,all stories concocted and added to
by sailors in bars after drinking about 50 bottles of brain rotting beer.
Time travelling hipster.
The man is wearing a jumper with a logo on it that represents the Montreal Maroons,a local ice hockey team that was readily available at the time.The
rest of the people in the crowd have chose formal attire for the occasion,but some can be seen carrying box cameras the same as the 'hipster'.No more
proof of time travel than if I turned up at a wedding reception in t-shirt,jeans and sneakers.
Al Bielek,who was also involved with the Philly experiment hoax made the claims about this place with no proof what so ever.From memory he was given a
dishonourable discharge from the navy which led to his wild and unsubstantiated claims to try to get his own back on the navy.No time travel here,just
a bitter old man.
Hit and run.
This was originally a short story published in the 1950s and didn't actually happen out here in the real world.
19th century CD case.
I'd guess at something with an inner glass lid to protect it's contents but keep them visible,maybe a jewellery box?
Charlie Chaplin and the iPhone.
Really? A woman in a blurry 100 year old film is holding something up to her ear which could just as well be a bagel or a lump of wood from what we
can (or can't) see. It's common knowledge that we were holding things up to our ears a long long long time before the mobile phone was invented.
