    Time travelling, anyone??

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gj3qesTjOE8

    Check out this video clip. It takes place in 1928 at a premier of Charlie Chaplin's The Circus. Check out the lady looking like she's talking on a cell phone.

    I was watching the news on that. But it is interesting that it matches up with her using a 1924 seimans hear aid device, which was held like a mobile phone and about the same size.
    Because like people have been asking, if it is a cell phone who is she talking to? Also if it was being used everyone would be rather curious.
    I for one hope that by the time time travel is invented, that phones are a little smaller and hands free then that!

    The weird part is that near the end of that piece, she kind of turns towards the camera and appears to be laughing and talking, lolol.

    She's talking long distance, of course!

    She must be talking on the new 4G network. It's so good, it reaches back to the 1920s!

    What people fail to realize is even IF there was a way to time travel back to the 1920's, and even IF she had a cell phone... there's no cell phone network for it to connect to.

    Yes, but if you can build a TIME MACHINE that completely DEFIES THE LAWS OF PHYSICS, SPACE, AND TIME, I think you can sort out that pesky cell phone network problem... :P :P :P

    And we are also basing that assumption on our current understanding of cell phone technology, NOT what will be available is 2085. :wink:

    LOL...

    Based on the video, and your post, in 2085 there's still no rapid weight loss programs.
