Maybe it's just me thinking the worst of people, but i'd have called this thread:

"French criminal tries to enter Japan with a fake passport".

He got rumbled, and done a runner...

Why Dismiss a story just because of where it was sourced ?
Before It's News , just like ATS has its share of good posts and very dodgey ones. I have seen some really delusional and outlandish posts on ATS .

Fun post to read...but an old story with not much mystery left to it.
The follow-up examples in your original source in Dark Stories/The Man who Feel (not my spelling) To Earth are actually more interesting.

Nah.
If one was going to fake a passport , one would use a REAL country of origin.

Nice try

So basically this guy lived in a parallel universe where Napoleon done something different?

Interesting story anyway, only read the first 2 pages maybe somebody has figured out more about the country's name and looked into the wars fought around that time,

Because a source tells you a lot about the reliability of a story.

You basically are saying, "yeah, that guy lies to me a lot of times, but sometimes he doesn't... so he's worth listening to".

i've always been skeptical of alternate universes, but (and not because of this story) i've recently began to think they might not just be a possibility, but a logical one at that.

perhaps such lapses occur in the same manner that virtual particle/anti-particle pairs pop up out of the vacuum due to quantum fluctuations. however, if such is the case, then couldn't any matter be transferred in such a way? why couldn't half of him be sent here, and half left, or what if part of the sun was transferred to the airport?

also, isn't it strange that an alternate reality has everything exactly the same, even the company's phone number, yet only his one country is different? i'd say this was a hoax.

This Utsuro Bune Japanese historical legend is very much in line with this story:

Heh..

His country doesn't excist, but the hotel and company that he is going to/from does, even though they don't know him.. And for some reason illegal immigrants are being detained in hotels.. Sure!

I'd like to see just a single source on this.. Apart from a book with even more far out stories..

You are tantalisingly close , but you have forgotten one thing ...... The law of Chaos. Chaos theory would account for all the subtle changes between parallel universes.

No , that is not what I'm saying at all .
Would the same story be any more credible if its source was The New Scientist magazine ?

People are dismissing the story because of the source . Catch my drift ?

I saw something about this on a tv show years ago. I can not remember the name of it to save my life. From what I recall, this is more than 20 years ago mind you, was that this was a hoax. If I recall this guy was a military atrategist and he was trying to show the need for airport security. To show how lax it was he created a passport and backup documents for a ficticous country. Over a couple months he flew to different countries showing how easy it was to enter with a homemade fake passport from a country that doesnt even exist.

When he was finally caught on his third trip to japan he tried to talk his way in and eventually had to contact the british embassy to verify his real identity and what he was doing. He was eventually released and sent back to the UK.

This was a tv show mind you but I recall the story. Because of the classified nature of his probe airport security was never informed and the story festered and spread.

Very interesting article, and I've enjoyed reading everyone's replies to this post. I, for one, don't believe we fully understand our universe. Therefore, I choose to believe that it may be possible as well as the possibility that it may all be a bunch of BS.

In regards to Occam's razor: The words "simplest" and "logical" are relative terms. What I think of as the simplest or most logical may not be the same for someone else. So I am careful not to apply Occam's razor to anything. In my humble opinion, Occam's razor is just an opinion.

That being said, I respect the fact that other people like to use it and believe in it. I myself just choose not to.

Yeah, some guys will come up with any excuse for not making it home at night. I wonder what his wife said when he came home a day late?

What if there are no such thing as wives in his reality? lol

Yeah, it'd be much more trustworthy if it was in New Scientist, because NS doesn't have a long history of publish hoaxes and tends to back up their claims with evidence.

That should be obvious to you and it's kinda shocking it isn't.
