slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.
He's sipping a cup of Joe!
its coffee, gotta be.
Scratchin his face/head...
Yep. And there's a DeLorean just behind the camera. Sad thing is that he couldn't be talking to anyone, so our first time traveler ever happens to be schizophrenic.
No trees were killed in the posting of this message. However a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
there wouldn't be any cell phone towers or satillites to make them work UNLESS UNLESS he is even farther in the future than we are......
The time traveller takes his phone with him back in time. Quantum reality would allow for his usage of a phone as time does not actually seperate him from the phone towers, only physical distance (as the signal is sent via radiowaves that aren't passing through subspace). He makes a phone call to any point in time via the relay of modern day phone towers. He would of course need to be relatively near an existing phone tower location to use it. The call can be placed though the exchange system, but I doubt that the signal could be retroverted to call landlines in the past unless the signal carrier previously existed and continues to exist.
Of course the question then becomes why the guy taking the photograph didn't have a decent camera from the future that would allow for more detail in the picture to ascertain for certain it wasn't just a man scratching his ear.
But i think that because of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle he could choose either who to call or when to call, but not both at the same time. It doesn't really matters though because he'd be calling everyone everywhen in some of the multiple alternative universes.
I'd love to have deeper knowledge both of physics and english to keep this amusing conversation on a higher level of nonsenseness
