I have nothing to sell, and there is nothing I want anyone to do. For all other time travelers out there, I have no tests for you and I would enjoy discussing your feelings and experiences after the war. To everyone else, while I’m here, I am very interested in your philosophy, religious outlooks and speculations on technology......
...In the last few months, I have had numerous extended conversations online and there are quite a few things I’ve said which can easily be checked out but haven’t. I get no pleasure out of being right when it comes to CJD disease, war in the Middle East or suffering people in far away lands. There’s nothing like the look on someone’s face when you tell them 100,000 people will be dead tomorrow. In my travels, I have discovered that most people really don’t want to know about the future because if its different than what they want it ticks them off. Actually, I don’t blame them.
As I stated before I have no intention of posting his other predictions nor will I post any "that's what he predicted!" responses. I'm still debating about whether to say anything if/when I see his next three events occur......
.....I can only imagine the type of information a person like yourself has read on a forum like this. I can't say that I empathize because I'm not generally one given to belief in anything other than science and the empirical. If I find that I feel comfortable posting more I will.
I will say this, I'll post something next week. It won't be a prediction or commentary after the fact however.
And to the person who mentioned working with TBI patients, I've also seen the "hot" issue come up once before. This was particularly puzzling given the negative CT.
That should at least go some distance in giving me a smattering of credibility. As for the account that I am about to relate, I can offer no proof. I can only tell you what happened.
Also, I realize there is no way for anyone to believe me with absolute certainty so I hope I'm at least entertaining. You may be interested to know that even in 2036, there are a large number of people who don’t believe in time travel. Are you sure the world is round?
Although this will make me a far less interesting time traveler, these are the rules I personally try to hold to:
1. I will not disclose any information that will cause someone to personally gain by its knowledge. This means no stock or sports tips.
2. I will not disclose any detailed information that would allow someone to avoid death by probability. This means no earthquake or bomb information.
3. I will not disclose any information that may compromise any future actions by individual people or threaten their family and well-being. I will not disclose names or events associated with individuals.
Because of HIPPA regulations I cannot reveal any information that may relate to his/her identity...
I can offer no further detail regarding the patient other than to say he made quite an impression on us...
...As I stated before I have no intention of posting his other predictions nor will I post any "that's what he predicted!" responses. I'm still debating about whether to say anything if/when I see his next three events occur.
I can promise you this - I'm not here to be sensationalistic or to cause a scene. I sincerely want to hear from others that may have had this experience
I suppose it doesn't look like much to "reveal" a prediction after the fact, but one thing he predicted involved the Somali president Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed and an attack on his plane. When I saw the results of the Democratic nomination results tonight I quickly Googled recent news of the Somali president and found his description to be fully accurate.
I have no plans of talking about his other predictions, but if the first three occur then I may be compelled to talk about the remaining events. Again, I'm still convicted that this may be fruitless for me to discuss beforehand.
As far as the future goes, your worldline is about 2.5% different than mine. This is a roughly cumulative measurement based on my arrival in 1975. As far as I can tell right now, you are headed toward the same events I would call “my history” in 2036. However, the very nature of time travel states that every worldline is unique and you are very much in control of what you do and how you get there. Heck, the fact that I’m here makes it different from mine.
......After the war, the main problem was distribution. Can anyone tell me how many companies in the United States still manufacture bicycle tires today? Anyone who still has a bike in 2008 will find out
(1) Industrialized mass production does not produce the uncountable tonnage of useless consumer items so gleefully absorbed by your society. I would estimate there are about 10 units like mine (C204) and twenty larger units (C206). The main difference is the sensitivity and number of the main Cesium clocks. I would estimate that some sort of public time travel will be common around 2045.
(2) I’m not aware of any other time traveler’s “here” now. But if they are here, I’m sure they’re pouring over sports history books so they can go back in time another week and start a friendly conversation on the web.
(3) The “Mad Cow” story here is yet to begin but don’t worry, the fruited jellitine deserts are safe.
(4) I’m glad to see it’s so easy for to dismiss the Middle East. Yes, I suppose it is a no brainer but pretty soon it will be a “no arrmer” and a “no legger”.
Therefore, any “prediction” I might make has a slight chance of being incorrect anyway and you now have the ability to act on it based on what I’ve said. Can you stop the war before it gets here? Sure. Will you do it? Probably not.
Waco, Ruby Ridge and Elian exist in your news archives. Telling you about impending place crashes or other disasters (provided I could give you exact dates and times) may save lives at one point but cause cascading changes that take others at a later point.

Actually, people have been convicted of criminal offences beased on an examination of written language and their style of writing. When I get into work tomorrow I think I'll print off the first few posts of the Titor and BoulderMD threads and do a proper linguistic analysis of them.
Earthscum, it is a fact that people can be identified by their writing style. End of story. I see what you're trying to say, but alas, you are wrong.
It'll pass some time in work for me. LOL
Another thing I would like to state: By debunking MD right off the bat, what incentive does he have to come back and finish up? You and others have already stated that you don't believe him, and he's probably got the idea that you won't believe no matter WHAT kind, or how much evidence he gives you.
You ran him off already, IMHO. Whether he was being truthful or not, I feel he isn't going to come back and will probably just hold on to his 'secret' for fear of someone else calling him crazy or a liar.
If you had something important to say, and people started saying that you are just lying, a hoaxer, whatever... would you feel more inclined to prove it to people that take nothing as valid evidence? Walk a mile in his shoes, please. Even if he does turn out to be a hoaxer... the best way to call him out would've been "Hmm... interesting... tell us more..." NOT "HOAX! This guy is OBVIOUSLY hoaxing! GIVE US PROOF!"... it's all about strategy. Play it smart, not like someone who will accept no less than his/her OWN experience as fact.
