Time traveller in 1938 footage
 
Apparently this is a net curio (apologies if been posted already).



It's bs (other than it being a short-range walkie-talkie device being tested at Du Pont) but a) the footage is strangely alluring and reminded me of those stories about Hedy Lamarr and cellphones, and b) like all good nutso conspiracy theories, there's a teeny-weeny part of me that wants to think: oh, if only that was true :).

Also, it's 40th anniversary of cellphone!

Yeah, this has gone around the block a few thousand times. ;)

It's a ruse. She's acting. No phone there. There is a subspace communicator in her top button she is actually using to talk with. And she's not a time traveller, she's El-Aurian.

Yep, she's a time-traveler using a cell-phone that's able to operate in a time in place with no cell-service. You win again, internet!

Well obviously she's using a Farnsworth.

Is that the device that allows you to hear everything in the sound of his voice?

That video is pretty disappointing. I know of another one that shows a man from the 30s with a cell phone. He's walking alone and is talking.

So, we figured out Who both of them we're talking to then... Each other.

Clearly it's one of the Doctor's companions.

Pffft. That's no time traveler. That's just Leonard Zelig in drag.

She is in fact a Dalek/human hybrid set to a specific time period to wait and watch for the doctor, you can see the bottom have is almost pure dalek. :p

There was another one a few years ago, apparently in a trailer kind of thing for a Charlie Chaplin film. older lady walking past a theatre. Sure looked like the real deal.

There's another vid that comes up in the options afterward, and a guy saying he weas involved in a DARPA experiment that proplelled him as a child back to watch the Gettysberg address. Yes folks, an authentic time traveller speaks. And he sounds so sincere. Look up Andrew D Basiago
