About 2 or 3 years ago I was on a bus and had a very weird exchange with a man who got on the bus and sat near me. I didn't make a post about it at
the time because it's hard to explain why it was so weird without being there and nothing unexplainable really happened. The first thing I noticed
about this guy when he got on the bus was his appearance, he was completely bald and wearing a business suit, the best way I can describe it is that
he looked much like an Observer
from the show Fringe. I mean obviously it's not so weird to see a
bald man in a suit, and I don't want to sound mean, but there was just something off-putting about his appearance and movements, he seemed quite
animated and couldn't sit still, it seemed to me as if he had been drinking.
I was sitting on the right side of the bus with a women and her daughter in the seat in front of me. He was to our left on a seat against the wall, so
he was facing towards us. He attempts to start a conversation with the women and it's quite clear she is uncomfortable, at this point I'm unsure if
he's being a creep or just wants to talk to someone. I was in Canberra at the time, which is the capital of Australia, and generally in city areas
people don't start random conversations with strangers on the bus, so his behavior also seemed odd in that regard. After a few minutes he seems to get
the hint she doesn't want to talk and although I'm trying to look out the window I can see him in the corner of my eye looking at me and trying to get
my attention. In case it's unclear from my avatar I'm also a guy.
Deciding to spare the women in front of me, I turn to look at the guy and we both know what's about to happen. He introduces himself and although I
don't remember the majority of what we spoke about I do remember he quickly brought up the topic of how people no longer interact with each other in
public which is why he likes to be friendly and talk to strangers on the bus. Since I'm from a rural area where people are more friendly, I could see
what he was saying and agreed with him, but it felt like a disingenuous explanation considering he clearly had bad social skills and the way he was
dressed, he didn't strike me as a rural guy but he also didn't seem like a local, more like a tourist. At another point in the conversation I remember
he asked whether I preferred the city or country and I answered the country because it's more peaceful.
As the conversation progressed I remember it got even weirder, he seemed to be asking strangely personal questions. Then he said something about me
which he shouldn't have known, unfortunately I cannot remember what he said now but my response was something fairly direct like "how would know
that?". He immediately became quite defensive and visibly agitated, saying it was just an assumption or something like that, I quickly changed the
subject and he calmed down again. The bus trip lasted about 20 minutes and we got off at the same stop. I got a really weird vibe during the entire
event but it didn't occur to me at the time there may have been something more to it than a conversation with an inebriated guy on a bus.
Looking back I think it was that event which made me look into time-travel topics more seriously and led me to create some of my threads about UFO's
and time machines. Obviously there may be nothing to it but I thought it was worth sharing anyway, I'd be interested to know if anyone else has had a
similar sort of experience. The actual lore behind the Observers in Fringe is pretty weird stuff just on its own, according to the Fringe wiki
"Observers were evolved humans from one possible future of mankind. In an attempt to study their evolution, they utilized their time period's
technology which allowed them to travel through time and space. Because of this technology, they existed quite literally "outside" of time. In their
own future, the world is damaged beyond repair and unsustainable".
