  1. This one! I only wish it was the truth. Would have made that movie far less cheesy and cliche. Okay, so it’s more likely the evidence listed is a result of not properly researching, but it’s still a more interesting plot than what we ended up with :roflmao:
  2. I think this is an interesting theory as well. Probably it can’t be proven, but at the very least it would make the good basis for a story, if there isn’t something similar out there already. I’d read that.
  3. Maybe so, but many people are greedy and financially motivated. If given the chance I would hella do it right now, travel back for financial gain. And those with ruling power traveling back could be potentially more dangerous than those simply traveling back to get some more money for themselves…
  4. Oh no you di'int :lol: Incidentally we hold similar views, you just stated them much more eloquently than I could.
  5. I haven’t been drunk in a few months. But I can tell you, never try making seared ahi poke when you’re under the influence. You will regret it. I have a friend who’s fond of frying up some chicken nuggets while drunk. I feel like that’s probably a safer choice.
  6. This, of course, assumes it’s possible to view alternate versions of yourself in other timelines. So supposing you saw all of your alternate selves with worse struggles than your own, meaning you’re living the best possible version of your life, how would you feel about that? Better about your own situation? Disheartened? Accepting? Something else altogether?
  7. If we ran across a rip of some sort in our universe, perhaps it would be possible. I don’t know if I’d want to see my alternate selves, though. To see another self who’s worse off than I am would be relieving in some ways but infuriating in others; and seeing another self who’s excelling at everything would be inspiring in some ways but disheartening in others. I think I’d be better off accepting my lot.
  8. Good thing for the morals… not so much for the wallet :P If the infrasonic vibration theory explains people’s reaction to these places, I’m pretty sure my particular locale lacks the proper frequencies anyway. Wouldn’t turn out too well, I’d imagine.
  9. I live in a heavily forested area… I keep thinking I ought to take advantage of that and create my own “interesting forest” for fun and profit. And then I feel like a jerk for wanting to play on the superstitious natures of people around me. I think this might be part of why I’m not much of a businesswoman.
  10. To me it looks more like a ring-sized replica watch, and someone in the comments of that second post points out that the hands are set to 10 past 10 which is a traditional display for advertising and photos. Perhaps someone who was exploring the tomb had it on their person and dropped it without saying anything...?
  11. Bit spurious, I think. Looking at the article @AgiTitor linked, a hearing aid seems like a more likely explanation for this. I’ve seen ear trumpets but not the early electronic models, so thanks for that link. Pretty fascinating stuff.
  12. Am I the only one who thinks the human race would be incredibly embarrassed if we did manage to make contact with aliens, and they thought we needed their help? I wonder if it would hurt our pride enough to start an interstellar war… In the second case, I like to think they’d be more inclined to leave us alone than attempt to destroy us. We already do such a good job of it ourselves, it seems like they’d be content to let us continue down that path on our own.
  13. Thinking about this further, the locations in my dreams tend to be familiar, but something’s always off. For example, the layout of a building I’ve visited frequently will have some slight changes and I’ll end up going down the wrong corridor. Or the building will be the same, but the outdoor setting will be slightly different. I don’t know if it means anything, like I’m visiting a slightly altered reality, but it does have a bit of the surreal about it in any case.
  14. Initiating contact when we can barely take care of our own business does seem rather foolish indeed. That will never stop the curiosity, of course. But searching/observation is one matter; actually attempting to communicate is quite another. It’s something that needs to be carefully thought through.
  15. No shame in that! It’s a classic for a reason, I still love it as well. Spending time on this forum makes me want to reread it, in fact.
