The guy who posted a few weeks ago saying he was from the future and needed help.

Read this. Kind of makes you wonder...

He made $350 million off the stock market -- in just 2 weeks!


NEW YORK -- Federal investigators have arrested an enigmatic Wall Street wiz on insider-trading charges -- and incredibly, he claims to be a time-traveler from the year 2256!

Sources at the Security and Exchange Commission confirm that 44-year-old Andrew Carlssin offered the bizarre explanation for his uncanny success in the stock market after being led off in handcuffs on January 28.

"We don't believe this guy's story -- he's either a lunatic or a pathological liar," says an SEC insider.

"But the fact is, with an initial investment of only $800, in two weeks' time he had a portfolio valued at over $350 million. Every trade he made capitalized on unexpected business developments, which simply can't be pure luck.

"The only way he could pull it off is with illegal inside information. He's going to sit in a jail cell on Rikers Island until he agrees to give up his sources."

The past year of nose-diving stock prices has left most investors crying in their beer. So when Carlssin made a flurry of 126 high-risk trades and came out the winner every time, it raised the eyebrows of Wall Street watchdogs.

"If a company's stock rose due to a merger or technological breakthrough that was supposed to be secret, Mr. Carlssin somehow knew about it in advance," says the SEC source close to the hush-hush, ongoing investigation.

When investigators hauled Carlssin in for questioning, they got more than they bargained for: A mind-boggling four-hour confession.

Carlssin declared that he had traveled back in time from over 200 years in the future, when it is common knowledge that our era experienced one of the worst stock plunges in history. Yet anyone armed with knowledge of the handful of stocks destined to go through the roof could make a fortune.

"It was just too tempting to resist," Carlssin allegedly said in his videotaped confession. "I had planned to make it look natural, you know, lose a little here and there so it doesn't look too perfect. But I just got caught in the moment."

In a bid for leniency, Carlssin has reportedly offered to divulge "historical facts" such as the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden and a cure for AIDS.

All he wants is to be allowed to return to the future in his "time craft."

However, he refuses to reveal the location of the machine or discuss how it works, supposedly out of fear the technology could "fall into the wrong hands."

Officials are quite confident the "time-traveler's" claims are bogus. Yet the SEC source admits, "No one can find any record of any Andrew Carlssin existing anywhere before December 2002."

Weekly World News will continue to follow this story as it unfolds. Keep watching for further developments.

Maybe, the world will be destroyed in 2026 because we didn't help him in his mission !

Or worst ! maybe the world will continue after 2026 !!

He didn't know he would get busted cuz he hadn't gotten busted before he time-traveled.

and had a license and a few good men with guns. then i'd go bust this cat out of wherever he is and see what he's all about. look at it this way.

fifteen years ago, we had the 8 bit nintendo. it's greatest graphics were a duck being blasted out of the air with a 'laser gun'

today we have the playstation 2. a machine who's bit i don't know, but can produce so many graphical effects, audio, stuff, can connect to the internet, and do other stuff, i don't want to know what technology will do in fifteen more years.

at this rate, our technology in 200 years could easily allow us to do a lot more, we'll no doubt be in space, mars most likely, the moon no doubt, maybe even have ontacted aliens, found cures for many diseases, have robots to do stuff for us and god knows what else. i don't know if this dude is true, but some guy out of nowhere being able to actually get that info from all these different companies? without bribes and stuff?
the amount he'd have to pay to get that info would probably be more than he has made, not to mention any one that he'd guessed to make if it 'was' insider trading, always has a chance to fail.

If he knew what the future would be, why didnt he know he would be busted???

btw, this is called a time loop, if he was in the future researching this stuff, he wouldn't have been caught yet because he was caught after he left his sources of info in the future. since he is caught now, there is no doubt, someone in the future who knows he got caught, maybe he has a contingency for such a thing. if he didn't get caught, then he'd be rich and happy and likely influence a lot of things, maybe even capitolising on time travel, however the paradoxes that would be made because of that would likely kill us all. i dunno, i want to hear this dude out!!!
