  1. Re: Vincente Fox... who??? As much as I hate G W Bush... Thanks for the clarification about the Vienna Treaty Darby.Is a doctrine I certainly wasn't familiar with. I still find it perplexing he'll support this treaty, but he won't accept anyone of our people being indicted and tried for "war crimes " committed in foriegn lands by the same Court. In Fact, from all accounts I've read up to now, hes modified a portion of the Geneva convention which affectively pardons everything He Cheney and Rumsfeld did by going into Iraq. None of them can ever be charged with a crime, or brought to justice for some of the attrocities they've committed in the name of "the war on terror".
  2. Re: Vincente Fox... who??? Vincente Fox who??? IMO... GEORGE WALKER BUSH... the best President the Country of Mexico ever had ? I saw Fox on [the F word Networks'] O'Reilly Factor the other night pumping his new book. How refreshing it was to see two complete idiots bantering on the TV for a change. Seriously, I feel that Bush and Fox both should STFU... on immigration issues affecting The United States. Fox shouldn't have an opinion about what we should be/shouldn't be doing behind our international borders. Why should he be be in a position to dictate his opinion, we'd be foolish to close our southern borders... when he (along with his predecessors,) have been unwilling to do something for their own Countrys people and or its ecconomic growth and development. Instead of fixing the problems in his own country... he's added to our problems by encouraging illegal immigration. To the other extreme: How laughable it is, the Bush Administration would side with a opinion favoring the Country of Mexico in the World Court (A body that isn't even recognized by the Bush Administration anyways... see Iraq war world court online,) arising out of a texas death penalty case, where a Mexican National (an illegal immigrant) convicted of killing two teen aged girls now claims his execution should be vacated because his right to a fair trial was jeopardized from the outset because he wasn't informed that he could notify the Mexican Embassy and obtain free legal counsel via the Mexican Consulates office after being arrested and charged with a crime in our Country. How ironic the U.S Supreme Court is getting involved now - because the Bush Administration is literally strong arming the State of Texas into vacating this mans death sentence and forcing Texas to re-try him (it would take the death penalty off the table... See Double Jeopardy.) Bush is a major hypocrite -- he neither respects the World Court, or saw anything wrong with his executing 149 immate scumbags while he was the Govenor of Texas... whats the difference now??
  3. :D Is a good thing I keep Bounty and Windex near my workstation.
  4. This first sentence is rather intriguing: Who singled this guy out - and why? What people? You came here looking for information about John Titor. You seem unsure in your own mind what to make of him or his story - but now your labeling John Titor a hoax? Would you be so kind as to give us an example or two of what you meant by 'the guy knows everything there is to know?' Whose we... are you more than one person? What other sites have you tracked your lecturer to?
  5. Re: answer to hdrkid Interesting links Recall. Rest of my non medicated rant removed...
  6. This puts me in mind of seeing him on TV once - talking about his parenting skills... as it goes, Phil had a little story to share with America. Seems Phil - his wife and son were out someplace in the family car, when the mother and the son got into a quarrel while Phil was trying to drive. At some point, the kid called dear old mom "a F[censored] B[censored]!" Phil pulled the car over and came to a halt, spun around in the driver seat and pounds his kid in the chest, with a finger as he screams angrilly "You little Punk - Don't you ever, ever talk to my wife like that again!" Great... now Phil McGraw's kid is embarassed and damaged (his friends all tune in to watch Dad.) Worse yet - Dad told all of America how he thinks his son is a Little Punk... If there was supposed to be something theraputic in telling the story, I certainly didn't see it. I'll have to say two thumbs down on this one Rodger....
  7. (this is going to be a little O/T gang. . .) I'm awfully sorry Zeshua, your message to my PM got deleted by accident. But I remember what it said and so I hope you don't mind my answering you here in your thread. Now, you asked if you might inquire kindly, as to the nature of my first deciding to post on this forum -as previously I'd been lurking here for one and a half years. The answer is: I found TTI quite by accident in December 2006, while I was doing some research online about paranormal phenomenon. There is a section here devoted to it on these forums. As I've seen a few things in my lifetime which defy simple explanation - and they certainly don't frighten me - I was curious to uncover what others who had or might still be experiencing similar encounters had to say, etc. Sad to point out there wasn't much of what I came looking for. Instead, as I began to look around - talk of Time Travel, and particularly the Time Travel claims made by a person named John Titor - caught my eye. This guy was real good up to a point, and after a little more research - I decided to keep checking back. I was doing so once a week. I'll confess I'm not as well educated - as some folks who post here:(those well versed with discussing physics, black holes, event horizons, micro singularites, Hawkings Radiation, usw,) however, in other areas I can make up for this and feel I can ask questions or contribute some valuable insight or commentary in a discussion. You wanted to know on the night I decided to register, what were my exact thoughts or emotions, that prompted my final decision in the matter. It was out of skepticism I decided to start posting here at TTI. I've always thought of myself as a open minded, deep thinking person. I'm easy to joke around and get along with - but on my other side, resides a powerful BS detector - I can smell complete BS when I read it, and I'm not afraid to get elbow deep doing research. Hence, after signing up on Aug 22 - my first post was to DarwinMurphys soon to be forgotten "I am here for now on assignment..." thread. I must say I'm still not impressed with this blokes story :D Further, you said you would also preface this question, as ... [i am ...somewhat of an intricate Anomaly. An unknown of sorts. Quite intriguing. Do you really think I'm as mysterious, perplexing and difficult to classify now? :D (shrugs) okay :)
  8. Grayson, Agreed. So much for Hollywood knocking, or the Meal Deal Toy rights. (sighs) :D
  9. Re: answer to hdrkid Thanks. After getting up to speed, on reading this thread - I'm surprised Darwin hasn't screamed "Uncle" yet. ?
  10. Cig, Theres many according to Acronym Attic online. 36 to be exact. NSAA = NonSteroidal AntiAntigen was the least likely one - I'm sure. :) The funniest was Norweigian Singers Association of America. NSAA North Shore Amatuer Astronomy hmmm. I think your looking for something more sinister... ;)
  11. NASA is an acronym for National Aeronautics and Space Administration heh, I didn't even have to look that up.
  12. PM Received. Thanks for the information, Herc.
  13. Re: answer to hdrkid Better yet, I've a new definition for "Time Traveler" One who makes the "time" to "travel"(here to TTI)and post meaningless BS ?
  14. Well lucky me... I was finally able to get back in over there. Poking around now.
  15. Slim to none - only slim just gave up the internet. ;) Say jmpett - did you find the dude you were looking for??
  16. Hey Darby... speaking of Annomalies... I was able to get in there before, but I haven't been able to go back and get in there since.
  17. Well John, its like this: I came rather late to this site. I'd been lurking here for a little over a year and a half - before I signed on and started posting last month. Titor was long gone by the time I arrived at TTI. I've done one heck of a lot of reading :) And snooping around all over the internet looking for other aspects about the man, and his mission. Please don't be swayed by my personal take on all this, instead come to form your own conclusions based on what you learn about him - and reason it through for yourself. Much of what I've read leads me to believe John Titor was a complete and finely woven hoax. Others might disagree with me here, but I've always believed theres a dangerous aspect in putting stock on the word of anyone who comes on like John Titor did - out of left field, and without warning. Sure - on one hand, he came across as being charming, and he never got angry with the people who posted their questions to him, and he seemed to have answers. Its some - or all of these aspects about him, that are still being debated here and elsewhere many years later. But -on the other hand, Titor had a few things in common with people we've all seen rise up and come to our attention through other means; those such as David Korresh or Jim Jones come to mind. In a way like Korresh and Jones - Titor was so convincing in conveying his message, and information about what our (his) future holds, that in the process - he swayed people into questioning the value of their own core beliefs, into accepting the possibly he could be the real deal. A genuine time traveler. After the fact - I feel sorry for these people. They've been tampered with in a way thats akin to being pychodynamically manipulated in my opinion. My only wish for them - is they get some resolution to any questions they want answered now - and perhaps an appology from this person they chose to give a benefit of the doubt to.
  18. JC, welcome to the board! Google.com is your friend and probably your best bet. Entering "John Titor ~ time traveler" should produce an abundance of hits for him and his story. There are still some people around who were posting during the brief time Titor was posting here and at a couple of other boards online. Hopefully, they'll be glad to give you some additional background info on him too as well.
  19. Welcome back Titorite. Sorry to see your thread got locked down, but it was for the best thing. Glad you had some time to cool off too. ========== Herc, I've been thinking about this IBM 5100 business for a while now. Didn't Titor go back into time to retrieve this particular model of computer from a relative? It was a Grandfather or something like that?? This has probably already been asked, but has anyone researched the person he met, as possibly being an employee of IBM? Or perhaps - the person was employed with a vendor who supplied the components to the development team that eventually designed the 5100?
  20. Trust me when I say this, it doesn't take a "time traveler" to predict this was going to happen. When the Patriot Act was first signed into law by Shrubhead - many people in the legal community I know here locally - spoke up saying that portions of the Act, or all of it - would eventually be deemed to be "unconstitutional" on its face, largely due to the "Separation of Powers doctrine" built into our Consititution. The Separation of Powers is outlined within the first 3 Articles. The System of "Checks and balances" is the operating principle by which our goverment functions, and this ensures that each Branch knows what the other two Branches are doing, and that one Branch isn't overstepping the boundaries or authority of another. In the case of the Patriot Act, the Executive branch proposed this act, and Legislative Branch feverishly passed it. However, in the process - this overstepped the Judiciary Branch by enacting Legislation which didn't meet Constitutional scrutiny. Was anyone surprised former Attorney General John Ashcroft resigned?
  21. And I wondered why the flies seem so thick here im my office this morning. My bug zapper is getting a Jane Fonda workout.
  22. Lots of folks use photobucket on message board forums... I don't use it myself. In as much as that may be the case - its still a red herring. The photos were still of the pentagon, and I won't say I suspect RMT doctored anything to make his point - he doesn't come across as being the sort who would. If he had to resize the images for the sake of posting them here, (without ruining the format of the thread) then using photobucket.com would make sense.
  23. The poor man... it must of been awful hard trying to make a POS continue to look like a beautiful piece of art. Speaking of Karl for a moment... I wonder when he's supposed to appear before Sen Specters horse and pony show - and testify (not really,) about what he knows about the 8 federal procecutors who were fired. I'm glad Alberto Gonzales took a clue from John AshCroft and jumped ship - before his being impeached in the Senate. That would of trashed his law career bigtime. The only one I feel sorry for - whose jumped ship recently - is Tony Snow. That guy was starting to look like death warmed over.
  24. Dang... I missed this post. As I see it - theres always been two problems we have had to contend with here. 1.) A multitude of media outlets scrambling to get their information on the air - and out to the masses that day. And 2.) a sitting government - whom for reasons they see fit and only they claim to understand - are unwilling to owe up to their sloppyness, ineptitude and wanton disregard - in the handling of intelligence information they had, leading up to 9/11 - and well beyond to the present date. Theres clear evidence that has been demonstrated, of Bush having an agenda to invade Iraq - going back to before he was sworn into office. Theres speculation Iran is our next stop - but thats all it is at this juncture - speculation. Both are at fault here for generating division on the issues of 9/11. The media has made the relaying of missinformation into an artform - if you ask me. On the otherhand, our present administration occupying the White (Out)House is pretty much the worst this country has ever had - and impeachment (the impossible dream - now) would be the suitable remedy. Karl Rove wasn't Bush's brain...more like his anal orrifice. My guess is the real puppet masters behind all this Sheeeeit, was the tag team of Dick Cheney/Donald Rumsfeld (aka Dumb and Dumber.) <<< IMO.
  25. Re: 911 was an inside job Whoa...Whoa... WHOAAAAAAA! Gentlemen, (Ding, ding, ding) Back up... BACK UP! Where is there evedence RMT lied to anyone?? As I was finding it hard to follow what you meant in the quote above, I had to go back and look at page 19 - where you and I talked about those photographs. Yes we did, but I believe we determined further on, the spools and fence appearing like they had been moved (1st photo vs 2nd photo) was due to camera angle. As for the yellow fire truck and yield sign (appearing in 2nd photo,)but "missing" in the third photogragh (long wide angle shot of wedge 1 area, red zone marking impact site) thats not really any evidence RMT sought to mislead anyone here, or is proof he lied about anything. The entire point behind posting those pictures - to begin with - was to address an issue being discussed about the penta-lawn, which you brought up. Let's keep the story straight here. Nobody is lying, but I think if the debate is going to continue we should start revealing our picture sources.
