That's class OSB, did you do it yourself? That's really good.

sure, since this is a fun board, since there is no other more important subject to go to the front page

and since no one that reads thought the page 6 will know that this is a fun thread, maybe they will conclude that yes, most members here must be crazy to flag a thread about that ridiculous picture

Wool sweater.

but I have noticed at least two members, or very new members, trying their hardest to put the idea down, something I have recently grown to distrust, simply because of the reactions, the determination, the excuses, their remarks on other similar threads, and that being their only history here, have a small investigation yourselves and you will notice something a little odd.

I have noticed it, too- but on various other threads. A couple 'new' people pop up, talk trash, and duck back down for a while- if they ever come back up for anything else at all. I thought I was paranoid (about that, at least.
), but now, ya got me wondering.... Altho I cant say it's because it's actually a pic of someone time travelling- But these people are getting their feet wet doing this sort of thing?

It does seem like everyone wore hats in that time, although if you look closely there is another gentleman not wearing a hat. T-shirts were not popular back then thanks to Clark Gable in the movie classic "It Happened One Night" where Mr Gable appears on screen taking off his shirt and not wearing an undershirt underneath it. (T-shirts went back in style because of Marlon Brando.)

The picture just goes to show us that there were individuals back then who did it their way and did not follow the fad of the times.

Yes, the young man does stick out like a sore thumb, but there is nothing to suggest he is a time traveler.

I concurr , this thread is nothing but a photoshopped picture, although it has provided a lit bit of fun this is not the appropriate place for it, and I have to agree with the other poster aswell.

When I first saw this thread and the amount of stars I thought to myself wow this could be interesting, after the first few posts I was extremely let down. Nothing left to say other than WHAT IS ATS BECOMING?

Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Doctor Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as QUANTUM LEAP. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Doctor Beckett, prematurely stepped into the Project Accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was made through brainwave transmissions, with Al, the Project Observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Doctor Beckett could see and hear. Trapped in the past, Doctor Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right, that once went wrong and hoping each time, that his next leap will be the leap home.

This would definately raise my eyebrow if the mans tee-shirt had a bold "S" on the front of it instead of "M"

Quite an interesting photo, does not look altered to me or anything but then again you never know these days.

I did find some links showing 1940's camera's that looked similar to the one he is holding.

I am sure that you had extroverted dressers back in those days too?

The girl seems to like him, maybe it was a punkish look

No, I'd seen this pictures a while ago and when I saw the thread about the time travel guy I remembered about them and searched again.

It's from a designer called Agan Harahap, he's quite awesome.

Thanks and kudos to your mum. The shadowing on his ears leapt out at me, and I looked at all the other faces to compare the lighting.

This is easy photoshop stuff.

Some kid probably thought it would look cool or even did it for a class assignment like I had to.

thank you for the photo. dont lose hart keep looking for more. all my life I have had a love of time travle. and I can not wait for me to see it for my self.

We have 50% of people saying fake/photoshop and 50% saying that they had cool clothes in the 40's.

I wonder which it is... I'm not a photo expert so I can't really say.

The lighting looks uniform to me - the angles are the same, and you don't know what might be off camera causing the 'line' shadow on his face.

The only oddity I can find is that he looks a bit too big relative to the people around him (check out the size of his head vs the guy behind him), almost like he was photoshopped in from another image and wasn't scaled appropriately..

Also, the person over his right shoulder looks like his body must be very very very close to anomaly-man, almost like he was pasted in over someone that was actually in the picture.

I think I'm grasping at staws on both counts tho, looking for something to be wrong that explains how odd he looks. Timetraveller tho?! It'd be cool if it was. : )

This thread has given me some great laughs so far!

Is it just me!? When you cut and paste this guy into different locations in time, he has that look which will just make you laugh everytime.

I truly think it's his hair!! Also the glasses that look so suspicious!

Oh man, this thread made my day! (or night..)

Really cool photo and he does pop out as out of place. Some nice work from fellow people here, I noticed his hair style is perfect fit for that time and compare it with others in that photo and you’ll see the no side burns, and large cut behind the ear and down, are like a few others in the photo.
I guess a real time traveler would at least try and fit in. “maybe”
