  1. Just to be ironic, THIS will be the guy who is legit.
  2. A QUARKS HUMBLE TREE = AH, BURLESQUE MARKET ICANN approves Porn Domain .XXX Wow, Zeshua is the gift that keeps on giving... and that's WAY more specific than boring old EARTHQUAKES RUMBLE.
  3. I disagree. I think it was a controlled gamble, like every other "prediction" made by potential time travellers. The whole "America calls for the bombing of facilities" fits the vocabulary of the whole "Iran's nuclear program" newsline over the past few years. It's no different than if I claim to be from the future and say "The 2012 election will see a new President and a larger influence by the Tea Party." I may be wrong, but currently things are trending toward me being right. When those predictions were written, he was trending toward being right.
  4. I just wanted to visit this thread to say: inb4 Zeshua is shoehorned into the current Japanese woes.
  5. Re: The TT Claimants' Hall of Shame Here we are, almost April... I'm getting excited. Will Chrono come back? Will he be 13 years old again? How about 127? Does England persevere into the 24th century? Can't wait for the exciting answers!
  6. Hey all you time traveling guys! A new year is coming, replete with chances to prove to the world (well, at least to the people who read this board) that you are who you say you are. So, use this thread, and let us know how it's going to be in 2011. Sample: I am D.D. Silver from the year 2010. In 2011, a major sports figure will find himself in legal trouble. I fully expect to be hailed as the 2nd coming of John Titor when this happens. Not a time traveler? Don't feel left out! Feel free to make a prediction, and we'll see how educated guessing stacks up against chrono-certainty! Good luck to everyone!
  7. Well, for all intents and purposes, we can stick a fork in 2010. We are one-tenth done with the 21st century. In just 90 short years, we'll be facing the 22nd century and ostensibly boldly going where no man has gone before. I, personally, plan to be dead… since I'll be 126 years old. But, what if, in the intervening years between now and my demise, time travel was to be discovered? I would immediately log onto my TTI account and find myself squarely on the opposite side… trying to convince others that I was legitimate. So, what would be my 2010 predictions to convince every one of my amazing time travel tales? Let's take a look: [*]The Haiti Earthquake [*]The Chilean Earthquake [*]President of Poland killed in an airplane crash [*]Greek Financial Crisis [*]Spain Wins World Cup [*]Wikileaks Fiasco [*]N. Korea shells S. Korea [*]Deaths – J.D. Salinger, Peter Graves, Corey Haim, Gary Coleman, Dennis Hopper, Tony Curtis, Leslie Nielsen (Graves did in fact, have the fish… however Nielsen had the chicken.) How did others do? Well, I checked the archives (these are predictions for the year 2010), and endeavored to edit out the globs of reheated Titor: [*]Teleportation becomes a commercial reality in 2010 (Hugo Steyn – 24 Jan 1999) [*]'Much disruption in the Earth's magnetic field between 2010-2015' (Time02112 – 30 Nov 2001) [*]Interaction with alien groups will be common (Steward Swerdlow, via Zxavier – approx. 28 Oct 2001) [*]A bunch of jibber jabber about aliens killing everyone, I didn't understand it, really. (Creedo299 – 11 Aug 2003) [*]Human cloning legalized in 2006, illegalized in 2010 (USATTA421 – 31 Jan 2004) [*]War engulfs US, Cuba, Canada, and Mexico (stealthweasle – 30 Aug 2004) [*]BNP elected into power in UK, Quebec recognized as sovereign state by France, Spain invades Morocco, Flanders breaks away from Belgium, Denmark invades the north pole (yes, seriously!), Russia declares war on the US, Greece declares war on Albania, Sweden takes in Muslim refugees. (youdontknowme – 3 April 2005) [*]Gas at $10/gal (roorichard, who claims to be Chronohistorian – 19 May 2006) [*]President Obama removes almost all troops from Iraq (Myster E – 18 Jan 2007… a surprising hit, considering he was just being a wiseass.) [*]Powerball reaches one billion dollars, winning number to be posted on TTI (Titorian – 26 Jan 2007) [*]The Hives 'officially retire' (Jimmy_Earth - 27 Jan 2007) [*]Corporate sponsorship of schools and other public buildings leads to something dire (DarwinMurphy – 8 July 07) [*]Major metropolitan areas destroyed by meteors (Paladius – 6 Jan 2008) [*]Britney Spears and/or Criss Angel get married (to each other or not) and/or die on 10 Oct 2010 (Razimus – 17 March 2008) [*]US no longer exists (PeterPanParadox – 16 Sept 2008) [*]The people of 2010 will see that Zeshua was the real deal (Peter Novak – 6 Jan 2009) Well, pretty much none of that happened, and that was an exhaustive search of the TTI archives from inception through around March or so of 2009, when the year 2010 was coming up far too often to sift through predictions and just mentions of the year. And, what about my "predictions"? [*]A search for 'Haiti' found no mention of earthquakes prior to 2010, and then it was all anyone could talk about, of couse. [*]There was a mention of a Chilean quake, but not the one in 2010. [*]Nobody cared about the president of Poland until he was dead. [*]Zero concern out there for the Greek economy [*]Nobody predicted Spain would win the World Cup (see, even in the future, nobody cares about soccer.) [*]There was discussion of Wikileaks, however, it was in reference to a California judge attempting to shut it down back in 2008. [*]Yes, everybody and their sister predicted war between the Koreas. I'm sure they're all slapping high-fives with each other down at the Titor Bar and Grill somewhere. [*]Nobody predicted any of the major deaths I mentioned. JMPet did compare RMT to Gary Coleman, though. What'chu talking about, Titor? So concludes 2010. It was the year that was/is/will be. To kick off 2011 in the right way, I'll be posting a "2011 Preview" of the TTI prognostications for that year (our first double digit year! Surely that means something!) And, no, I have not forgotten my Zeshua review... but, that is a huge pile to shovel. See you guys in '11!
  8. I'm researching Zeshua for my next Hall of Shame report. I'd just like to report that Zeshua dropped his "A 3rd becomes next" on 14 April 2005, during the interim between the death of Pope John Paul II and the selection of Benedict XVI on 19 April 2005. I'm pretty sure it was a dim attempt to predict that the next pope would be Whoever the III. (Most likely JP III, but could have been a couple of others.) This rolls into the whole "look in the paper and make a couple of guesses" mode that most time travellers operate under.
  9. Re: Just for fun...let's track Web Bot predictions! I see your point, Twilight. But, the window of the prediction has to be considered. If you predicted a Dem loss in the mid-terms during the height of Obamamania in early 09, I might consider hailing you as a psychic... or at least acknowledge your mastery of political trending.
  10. Ok, allegory isn't your strong suit, Rusty. Basically, what I'm trying to say is, science is science is science. Has been since, well, let's give Ibn Alhazen the credit for solidifying scientific method, that would have been around 965 CE, or roughly 1045 years ago. No, I don't speak Arabic, but I imagine that Alhazen and I would have similiar principles for pursuing scientific method. These principles have been laid out. And, btw, your English vernacular is great for a guy from whenever you are. That's the one thing I love about TTs, they always are hip to the lingo, daddy-o. They can pick up what you're putting down. They savvy your patter. They can totally dig what you're bringing to the table, y'know?
  11. This is a little OT, Twilight, but, you'd be man to answer this... In the art world, artists that are considered "great" or "a master" could have labored in obscurity during their own lives. This is very common with American artists, especially. (Think Wood and Whistler) However, the science world doesn't seem to have this problem. If you are coming up with interesting and revolutionary theories, the recognition seems to come right along with it. Are there any examples from the scientific world of someone producing works of genius, yet going undiscovered in their lifetime? If not, I would have to say it's pretty delusional for anyone to think they're just going to wake up with the Unified Theory solidified in their head one morning.

  13. That's the tl;dr postulate. Shall I round up a /b/tard or two to come in and translate?

  15. Let's just imagine that I have a time machine, and I hop in and cruise on back to see Isaac Newton. Are we going to be able to communicate perfectly? No. Are we going to be able to communicate? Yes, Newton and I both speak something within the realm of English that can still find common ground. Are our respective concepts of "what science is" going to be compatible? YES! A lot of people fail on the semantics of what Newton being discredited (if you can even say he has been discredited at all) means. It doesn't mean that everything Newton ever said was BS. And it doesn't mean that Isaac Newton wouldn't recognize or appreciate scientific method. Quite the opposite, in fact. So, your assertion that someone from the year 3000 is going to have a totally different "concept" of science than me doesn't wash. Ibn al-Haytham was pursuing a scientific method over 1000 years ago. That's one of the great things about science, it translates easily across language and cultural barriers.
