Purely speculation here but a little background on me and this topic: There's very little
.. forgive me if THIS particular line of discussion has
some how been discussed before, I know John and theories have been.. but this is hopefully a different line of discussion.
I never really paid much attention to the John Titor stuff even as it was happening in real time back in 2000 and 2001 ( or as far back as 1998 if you
include the faxes ) .. so the topic just caught my attention and I started reading up.
I read about the ENTERTAINMENT lawyer Larry Haber who apparently owns all commercial rights to John Titor, and I heard the allegations that John Titor
may in fact be Larry's brother.. another theory is that John Titor is Larry's son who would be about age 23 now, that would make him 12 when this
all started so I don't put much weight on that particular theory..
However, to get to the point.. I found a youtube account that has been out there for a little while called whereisjohntitor:
This is a group of guys who go out and try to find as much information on John as possible.. it started off in part 1 where they try to track down the
PO box that hoaxhunter claimed was proof that Larry's brother was John Titor.. they went there and the po box didn't exist .. so it looked like they
were debunking the debunker, that's the feeling I got right away..
It continues on and they find two desserted offices of Larry and decide to call him up, they leave a voice mail and Larry responds and even agrees to
an interview.. that surprised me, why would he? you know he's been hounded for years.. why would he sit down with these people?
Nevertheless they sit down with Larry, Larry's Son and Larry's Brother.. the interview was not hard hitting at all, it looked like it was just a
sounding board for Larry more than anything else.. they ask internet questions basically and Larry answers.. very verbosely but without giving any
useful details .. He tries to downplay his brother's technical ability... for instance, his brother said he is in the IT industry, he's been in the
field for years and he programs.. Larry then cuts him off at one point and said no the real genius is my son, my brother does stuff like fix
computers, get passwords for people and make basic web sites.. THAT made me feel more than anything that his brother IS in fact "John Titor" ( the
poster ) and that Larry was trying to divert idea away.. he pointed back to his son as being the capable one but then pointed out his age.. making it
not really possible..
Another thing in this interview is they mention a departure video that John's mom apparently filmed, Larry indicated that he only saw two minutes of
it but that John's mom hasn't released it yet and that when he asks her about it she says "Soon, not now but soon" .. yet on another site (
johntitor.com ) there's a letter from John's mom that says she sent the video to several people and they decided not to release it for whatever
reason.. So Larry's statement doesn't really jive ..
After the interview the guys talk about how they make no money off this and they are just doing this for "us" the internet crowd.. but then later in
the series they talk about a documentary they are making, asking for money.. and the tone changes entirely.. smaller, teaser style videos.. they also
point out the johntitorfoundation.com site changed and they found this sort of puzzle linking the book, the site and the posts together ( they
"mysteriously" got sent a copy of this $800 book from Omaha by the way ) .. they also mention there's a film that's been made and they interview
the actor who plays John Titor.. a film that was never released..
So this at the END of all that made it seem to me like there's a current attempt at viral marketing which all links back again to Larry Haber and
family.. my personal hunch is that Larry tried to spark something back in 2000, he did apparently try to pitch a radio show back then about the John
Titor story which never took off.. it seemed like he was doing an early sort of "Blair Witch" marketing on forums for this story, get it hyped and
then monetize it .. some people got too close and were busting holes in the physics and it was let to die down.. now years later it seems like they
are moving forward again with the hype.. they've updated the foundation site and Kay ( johns supposed mom ) has released a note from her Son
indicating there are in fact two John's that have visited.. the foundation site has cryptic stuff on it ..
Yes this is a long winded post, it's late and I have a full week ahead so I wanted to get this out there so people could throw in their two cents on
what they make of this? .. i don't for one minute buy into the Titor story as truth, there's too many flaws with the science behind his claims, too
many failed predictions and just too much circumstantial evidence pointing to it being a hoax, the question is, what do you think they are up to right
