3 Real Life Time Travelers?

Are time travelers real? – Let’s talk about that.  Good Mythical Morning! – Today is October 21st, 2015, the infamous destination day for Marty McFly and Doc Brown in – Back to the Future Part II. – Mm! Now, that movie was released in 1989, so their 26-year leap into the future is now – our present. – Whoa! And they delivered on a number of predictions including hoverboards, thumb print payment, drone cameras, video calling, and the wild popularity of – PewDiePie. – Oh ho! That’s not true. So, in the spirit of Marty McFly, the DeLorean, and the Flux Capacitor, we’re gonna be talking about some real life time travelers! Now, you may remember last year we did an episode called “4 Cases of Time Travel.” – I do. – Well, it turns out there are so many amazing cases and claims about time travel that that’s not enough to cover it! So we did a little boopity-boop-boop- badoop-boop-boop research and we got – some more for you. – Lemme hit you with this…open cockpit – biplane pilot from 1935, – Wow, that’s a mouthful.

Sir Robert Victor Goddard, a pilot for the British Royal Air Force. When you got “Sir” in front of your name and you say you’ve traveled in time, listen. – Listen to that guy. – ‘Cause that means he’s like a knight, right? He’s been knighted. If you’re a “Sir,” right? Well, he was flying during the day, and it was a round trip flight. – Yep, the best. – And he’s going to Edinburgh and he looks down on his way and he sees the abandoned airfield in Drem, Scotland.

– You’ve heard of it. – There it is, yeah. Everybody has. Nothing out of the ordinary here, you know? Dilapidated tarmac, four hangars in disrepair, pastures with some cows… but then, on his way back on the round trip, coming back through, he encounters some problems. He enters a downward spiral, almost dies, okay? But then he recovers and he finds himself flying in these strange yellow clouds, and then the clouds– You sure they weren’t yellow puddles on the inside of the cockpit? (chuckles) Could’ve been. And the clouds part and he looks down and lo and behold, there is the same Drem Airfield in Scotland, but now– – (dramatically) In the future! – It’s totally operational and renovated. It looks good as new. There are four planes down there painted yellow.

Now, we all know that back then the RAF planes were not painted yellow. – Oh yeah. Who would’ve thought of that? – There was one monoplane down there which was unlike anything in the Royal Air Force in 1935. The mechanics’ overalls… you know, they were all working and bustling down there– they were all wearing blue overalls. You know they don’t wear blue overalls back then! – This guy’s got good vision. – They wear what? What color do they – wear back then, Rhett? – I dunno. – (whispers) Brown. – Brown! Brown! That’s right. Made it safely back, tells his friends, they don’t believe him. And then, four years later, 1939, guess what happened. They did reopen Drem Airfield, and what color did they paint the training planes? – Yellow. – Yellow! And they had one monoplane called “The Magister” just like the one he witnessed, was added to the fleet.

And the mechanics’ overalls were changed to what color, Rhett? – Blue. – Blue! Was he on the planning committee for the new Air Force base? – (laughs) – I mean, there’s a way to confirm that your prediction comes true, just be on the board of directors. Do you know that – he wasn’t? – I don’t know. – And maybe he just has insight– – He was a “Sir.” into aviation fashion. I mean, I could totally see that going from brown to blue. – He wrote a book! – Seems innovative. In 1975, called “The Flight Towards Reality.” That’s good enough for me. I’m gonna read that! Okay, so that’s his story. I’ve got another story. – A little more recent. – Top that. Andrew Basiago. This guy’s a lawyer with five degrees. He’s also a writer and a member of Mensa. He also happens to be the first child to teleport! – Okay. – Through time.

– Smart lawyer. – Okay. This guy has gone on Coast to Coast AM, this AM radio show that’s absolutely amazing. And they don’t just let anyone on that show. – No, they don’t. – (Rhett and crew laugh) And he’s told this entire story, so these are some tidbits from the story. – Okay. – So, he claims that back in 1968 when he was a boy, he was part of something called “Project Pegasus,” which is a supposed classified exploration of time travel and teleportation project sanctioned – by the US government. – So they would send kids on time travel – excursions? – Yeah! Yeah, because, you know, I guess the time machines are small.

You gotta put youngsters in there. 140 of ’em supposedly involved in this. He claims, among a number of things, to have gone back to 1 million BC to check out the dinosaurs, where he was almost eaten alive. Either he was misquoted or… 1 million BC is not far enough for the dinosaurs. You gotta go– remember, like 65 million years is when – they went extinct, so… – Well, he was a kid. – Maybe he got his math mixed up. – Maybe. He went to 2045 to pick up some microfilm. That’s in the future.

Can’t wait to see what that is! Microfilm. He’s also said that he traveled back and forth to Mars as part of the military’s plan to establish an American presence on the Red Planet, and, for one of those trips, he was accompanied by none other than President Barack Obama, who, at that time, was going by the name – “Barry Sotoro.” – And going through puberty? I mean, what are these, middle schoolers traveling around Mars? I think it said that Barack was a teenager at the time, which 1968…

Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, but… okay, anyway. As if that wasn’t believable, he says that because of his good performance in these duties, – Okay. – he was given the opportunity on November 19, 1863, to go back and see Lincoln deliver the Gettysburg Address. And there’s photographic evidence, everybody! – Bring it on! – Here’s the photo. This is what Andrew says, quote, “I am the boy standing in the center of the image looking to his right.

My shoes were lost in the transit through the Quantum Plenum that took me from the plasma confinement chamber. A cobbler–” that’s a shoemaker, not a peach cobbler that you would enjoy– “by the name of John Lawrence Burns furnished me with a pair of men’s street shoes and a Union winter parka. In this image, you can see how oversized the shoes were. When I walked over to this location and stood in this manner to detract attention from my shoes–” This is how I always stand when I wanna detract attention from my big shoes. – (Link laughs) – (Rhett) I just kinda look to the right and point both of ’em in the same direction. – (laughs) – “Lincoln had not yet arrived and I only stood in this position for several minutes before the quantum field effect produced by the plasma confinement chamber ended and I found myself back in the Time Lab in New Jersey!” So he didn’t get to see the Gettysburg Address! What a bummer! – But he got some sweet new kicks! – Yeah he did.

– (crew laughs) – A little oversized, but you know, you can just stand sideways and nobody’ll notice. – So the proof is right there! – So, this is photographic evidence. – Proof is in the shoes. – And this guy’s made quite a stir – on the radio circuit, Link! – Has he, now? He has. So there’s that. You got another one? Well, is there any other pictures of the shoes? Because I’m really into that. Nope, but I could do, like, a CSI zoom-in on ’em though. On November 2nd, in the year 2000, a user by the name of “Timetravel_0” began a thread on the Time Travel Institute Forum’s web site and claimed that he was – from the year 2036. – Mmhm. And he was like, “I’ll answer any questions you got.” – (laughs) Here I am at the forum. – I’m a time traveler and here are my – office hours. Um, so– – This is the place to go if you come back from the future, though. The Time Travel Institute forums. – Right. – I mean… don’t go to the press. Quickly, some of the things you gather are: he was an American soldier from the year 2036 based in Hillsboro County, Florida, and his name was John Titor.

He started traveling in time as part of an undercover secret government project where he had to return to the year 1975 and retrieve an IBM 5100 computer – Of course! – and bring it back to 2036. But instead of just going back to the future, he stopped in the year 2000 for, quote– Hold on. Why was he getting a computer from 1975 to solve a problem in the future? To debug the Unix Year 2038 problem, which is– – Oh! Oh, okay. Continue. – (Rhett and crew laugh) – It’s like Y2K but in 2038. – Yeah, gotta have those 1975 computers. Instead of going back to the future, he stopped in the year 2000 for, quote, – “some personal reasons.” – That was a good year! As he’s answering all these questions in the forum, he’s giving all types of details.

You can read all this stuff. It’s really fascinating. He explained time travel, he said he travels using a Displacement Unit that was made by General Electric. He’s very forthright. He scanned user manuals. – He had a brand integration in his story. – (laughs) – GE! – (both laugh) Yeah. And he showed pictures of equipment and he had taken those photos with – Polaroid cameras. – Yeah. He’s into retro stuff. – (laughs) – He goes back to 1975, he only takes – Polaroids… I like this guy. – So, the situation is, you know, if in 2036, this guy was in the military, then, if you look at the range of time, – well, right now in 2015– – He’s alive right now. ‘Cause they’re not gonna send, like, an 18-year-old on this mission.

Well, if they did, he could be about to be born, or he could be in grade school. – No, Link, he’s alive. – Most likely. You can’t be but at least 30 years old to go on a mission like this, so 30 years old in 2036, he’s like 9 years old right now. This is a 9-year-old! John! – And he’s going to be a time traveler. – Well, we should have him on the show. – Right. Or his mom. Or both. – Or both! You can both come. If you don’t travel by yourself, come with your mom.

I don’t care. Now, his mom went on Coast to Coast and, speaking through a lawyer, because she actually wouldn’t talk, the lawyer was trying to support her case of being John’s mother, and that didn’t really amount to much. But I think we can get to the bottom of it, especially, John, if you reach out to us. Bring your Polaroids, bring your mom, and bring a 1975 computer. We’ve got a NASCAR – computer we can trade. – John predicted that a world war in 2015 – would kill 3 billion people, so… – Oh, there’s still some time left.

There’s some other predictions I can go through in Good Mythical More, but for now, I’m pretty excited about the cases for time travel! – (laughs) – Let us know what you think in the – comments. – Thanks for liking and commenting and – subscribing. – You know what time it is. – Hi, I’m Avery. – Hi, I’m Shea. – Hi, I’m Sophie. – Hi, I’m Liv. Hi, I’m Ava, and it’s my birthday. (all) And it’s time to spin the Wheel of Mythicality! Woooooo! Today is the last day that you can get the hoverboard shirt! You have to act – (both) now! – to get that shirt, people! – (Rhett) RhettandLink.com/store. – Click through to Good Mythical More. We are gonna play Guess that Celebrity Time Traveler Game. (high pitched) Ooh, it’s gonna be so fun! Rhett’s got some pictures of celebrities in the past.

2 Most Convincing Alien Abduction Stories

Have actuall individuals really been abducted by aliens? Let’s explore that! ♪ Good… Mythical… Morning! – The world is a huge place. – (usually) Oh, yes. – We don’t also know how huge it is or how big it’s becoming. Current quotes state there are – 100 octillion movie stars. – That’s quite a few. – That’s one with 29 zeros after it. – Big quantity. So odds are there’s some other life online. – But the question is: Has that life… – receive united states? … come in contact with us? There’s many individuals whom state “Yes.” Now, physically, – we don’t think this has occurred, but… – Me neither.

Significant stories that I’ve heard prior to are like uncle Hank… you know, the guy who has no hair over their head but he’s many hair in the straight back, and he’s a koozie with him constantly. Hehas an alien abduction tale. – Yeah. – But not all alien abduction stories are – like Uncle Hank’s. – Mm-mm. They are sometimes more advanced and much harder to just dismiss. And we’re gonna be talking today about– we each have a story we think is more difficult to dismiss – than your uncle with the koozie. – Mm-hm. Yeah. So we’ll start. I’ve discovered… This is among the first alien abduction stories, and we’m going to go with this one because we think there’s some convincing things to it. Postman Barney Hill and their wife Betty had been driving back from Canada. They had been in Brand New Hampshire. It ended up being at night around 10 P.M. They see this celebrity that’s moving erratically. – Okay. – (gruffly) That ain’t no celebrity.

(normally) So they pull over at a rest area. Now let me personally point out– – That’s nice. – Here’s a picture of couple. They’re maybe not on remainder area within… this is a posed image, maybe not at a rest area. – Okay. – (Link) Would this couple lie to you? – (Rhett) They appear trustworthy! – (Link) They appear trustworthy. Look at – the dachshund in Betty’s lap. We mean– – (Rhett) Okay, he’s maybe not going to tell a lie. And he’s maybe not going to suffer any liars or stay in the lap of a liar, so that’s point – one right there. – which medical! – They visit the remainder area. – They have a dachshund.

Barney gets out their binoculars and begins evaluating this thing. He estimates– – He had binoculars? – Yeah, definitely he did. – had been they around their neck already? – naturally. He’s a postman – with a dachshund. – He estimated it ended up being a 40-foot-long craft with flashing colors and it had windows. As it ended up being getting closer to him– because yes, it ended up being getting closer to him– he could see there had been beings inside it. – Okay. – Gets back in the automobile and states, “They’re going to capture united states!” And then they start driving off. They start to experience beeping, buzzing, then there’s like a tingling sensation and a vibration – of automobile… – They had been at Brookstone in the – therapeutic massage chairs.

– (team laughs) – No, they had been in their automobile. – (silly vocals) We’re in Brookstone, baby! (laughs) They had been driving! They had been driving down the road then suddenly, they enter what they describe as a state of their minds being dulled. – Oh! – So their minds are dulled. And then… – Okay. – There’s another set of beeping and buzzing, and we’m suggesting what we think occurred is they were– (slurps) – sucked up in– – That’s everything think occurred, huh? – sucked up into the, into the craft. – Well that’s what they think occurred. No, they don’t know at this point. So they keep driving, but they understand that they are now, apparently instantaneously, 35 kilometers south of in which – they had started. – Whoa.

With no recollection of traveling those 35 kilometers. – That’s maybe not Brookstone. – They arrive at home then they start to notice that they have some uncontrollable impulses and thoughts. Like, Betty’s packing a suitcase and placing it by the door. She’s having nightmares of UFO abductions. Barney ended up being compelled to check their genitalia. – Pshhh! – (giggles) Okay, fine. That’s quite a compulsion. That is a healthy compulsion to check it every now and again… – Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is. – (team laughs) – But… (laughs) – You should check it.

I mean… He missed any such thing, but he ended up being compelled to check it. – Yeah. – And only after the beeping and – buzzing and… – Yeah, right, okay. – therefore, get this. – we get ya, Barney. We realize. – Betty calls the local Air Force base. – Then? – And they reply! – (silly vocals) Hello, Air Force! – we mean, like… – We don’t have any therapeutic massage chairs! (laughs) How is this feasible? But really, she calls the Air Force base. – Major Paul W. Henderson states… – (usually) genuine guy. “The UFO ended up being also confirmed by our radar.” After she describes their experience. And that just means “unidentified flying item.” He said, “The UFO ended up being also confirmed by our radar.” – Okay, fine. – Then they decide to go through… They decide to try to account for what they think become two hours of lost time and 35 miles.

They enter regressive hypnotherapy and they both have the same stories. They’re drawing sketches. This is a sketch that Barney drew of “the frontrunner,” he called it. – (Rhett) Hm! It’s a snake with a beret! – (laughs) Yeah. – (French accent) It’s a French snake! – He’s a postman, he’s maybe not a– – Ooh los angeles los angeles, Barney! – He’s maybe not an artiste. So, basically, they visited the conclusion that they’ve been abducted by aliens. They remember through regressive hypnotherapy that they took their epidermis, hair, nail – samples, physical fluid samples… – Oh! – Here’s the thing, guys. – we get you, Barney. This is a typical alien abduction tale, except it ended up being the first one! – Appropriate. – And they kinda had to figure it out.

They had beenn’t building on other previous stories. – others emulated them. – Even that image, that image of – snake with the beret. Totally original. – Totally– really, completely original. – Yeah. – The Air Force confirmed there ended up being one thing regarding radar! And the da-shund. The datsun, individuals! – How do you state that… dog? – You state datsun, you don’t state da-shund, – we don’t think. – That’s how you spell it, though! – we mean, think… – so’s what it precipitates to for them.

– (considerably) Believe the dashund. – They have a dashund. – All right, I’ve got a story. – They corroborated, you know? – In their regression! – This is the Travis Walton tale. A very famous– most likely the most famous UFO abduction, alien abduction tale back from November of 1975. He’s clearing woods, type of a blue collar guy. – He’s clearing woods. – Literally, he’s wearing a blue collar… – (Rhett) Yes. – (Link) and plaid top. (Rhett) Yeah. He ended up being a logger. He’s clearing woods in Arizona with seven other guys. They complete their change, they enter a truck. Big vehicle, seven guys. They’re going down the road and they see, quote, “a luminous item – shaped like a flattened disc.” Travis– – Saucer. We call that a flying– (snaps) Saucer. Travis gets away and draws near the saucer. Of course he does because he’s a lumberjack. And the remaining guys remain in the truck. They see a– speaking of blue collar– a blue beam hit him.

Beam of light knocks him down. They panic, others six guys. They drive off. After sometime, they’re like, possibly we should get – get Travis! – They ditched him. Wouldn’t you!? They’re scared! They return. He’s no place to be found. So they straight away visit the authorities in the nearest city. They state, “Our buddy–” They tell ’em the entire tale. “Our buddy ended up being hit with this beam of light.” And they’re like, “These dudes are peanuts! But possibly one thing’s going on.” They start a manhunt. It comes to an end up being the largest manhunt in Arizona history. – Travis-hunt. – Five times of selecting Travis, but simultaneously, they’re like, “naturally these guys don’t really experience a UFO – situation,” appropriate? – They killed him.

They suspected that they murdered him. They teamed up on him and murdered him in their typical logger way of telling the tale ended up being, (southern accent) “Hey man, suppose he got abducted by aliens. That’ll be believable.” (southern accent) Blue beam o’ light… allow’s get our tale right. (usually) therefore they polygraph them, give them a lie detector test. Five from six – of guys pass the test. – (usually) Oh, therefore the sixth one – killed him. – No. And among the guys whom ended up being there– it ended up being just inconclusive. He don’t complete the test because he ended up being type of – emotionally shaken up.

– naturally he ended up being. – Now, the guys whom administered– – He just killed a man. administered these tests said, “We are completely convinced that these males believe that he ended up being abducted by aliens. They saw– they did not kill him. They – believe that this is what has occurred. – Okay. At the same time, what happens to Travis? Well, five times pass and suddenly he wakes up in front of a local gasoline section with an incredibly detailed story– – nude. – of what had occurred. We think he nevertheless ended up being clothed. He nevertheless had that blue top on, we’m pretty sure. Right here’s what he remembers: first, it’s an incredibly detailed tale. We’m just going to supply some of features. First of all, they don’t kill him, because he’s back. – He’s back. – therefore there you get. He remembers being on a table thinking he’s in a hospital space, but the he looks up and he sees aliens that, quote, “looked like fetuses…” – Ew. – caring for him.

So the old fetus alien, you know? He gets scared, maybe not because they’re aliens, but because they’re – fetus aliens. – Oh, yeah. And he picks up a glass cylinder on a shelf and starts yelling at them and – waving the glass cylinder. – A flask? And they leave. Simply a glass cylinder. We don’t know what that’s for. Like a luminary that you place like some… We don’t have a picture. It ended up being regarding alien ship.

– Okay. – we’m going off Travis’s testimony right here. – Got it. – He waves it at them like a magic wand. They get from the space, then he states, (claps) “we got this spaceship to myself.” – (laughs) – He walks down a hallway, – goes into a room… – (team laughs) – He’s a penguin! – And there’s a room with a chair in the – center with a lever. – naturally there’s! Or a lever. This is like a cartoon. We gotta state, Travis, at this point it appears like a cartoon. However know what? We’m going to continue. – A barber seat! – He enters the barber chair.

He brings the lever and suddenly it begins a light show of movie stars like he’s at – the planetarium, basically. – (laughs) He should’ve had a woman with him, ’cause this would’ve been a great first date. You know, among my most useful first dates ended up being on planetarium. – Learn the girl a little something. – Yeah, it’s like, (silly vocals) Oh, examine the movie stars. Look how small we are. We’re therefore small, but me personally therefore are here – alongside each other in the planetarium. – No one will know any such thing we do. (laughs) (usually) Yeah, that’s appropriate. That’s what happened. There ended up being no date, though. Fundamentally he begins thinking, “perhaps we should escape right here.” He begins travelling the craft more. He finds this, quote, “tall individual character wearing blue overalls and a glassy helmet,” we don’t know what that ended up being about. But he finds more of those guys. They become – placing a gas mask– – Farmer. Farmer aliens. Yeah, with glass helmets.

They place a gas mask– – Deep sea scuba diving farmer aliens. – gasoline mask on him. He gets knocked-out and next thing he remembers, he wakes up on gasoline section. Petrol mask, gasoline – section, we don’t know, possibly, ha ha. – But he still– maybe not. (laughs) And he believes that two hours have passed away, but five times have passed away. Whoa. Does he nevertheless have the flask in their hand? Like he involves and… He did not bring the glass cylinder with him. Maybe not a flask, Link. And he did not have the lever with him. But he’d a story that he turned into a – guide called The Walton Enjoy, – He had quite a story. that then ended up being turned into a TV show, a long-running TV show called The Waltons. (numerous voices) Good night, Jim Bob! No, in fact it ended up being turned into a movie called Fire in Sky back in the 90’s. He is a celebrity amongst this community. You’ll get on the web, you search this guy on YouTube and there’s him talking at UFO conventions.

He’s nevertheless like a celebrity whom tells their tale. Most of these guys, within the team, have maintained their testimony. There’s one guy that’s some squirrelly, but many – of them have maintained their testimony. – He’s nevertheless in prison for murdering him. And he’s attempting to get Fire in Sky remade… – Sequel? Or a remake? – ‘Cause he desires it become accurate. – He desires it become accurate. – Like, visually accurate? – Or the tale ended up beingn’t appropriate? – He desires everything to be– – He desires the flask become perfectly. – (laughs) – He desires the fetal aliens become appropriate. – Why should we think this one? We mean, there had been no binoculars. There’s no dachshund. Well, there’s a movie, though. We mean, he made it into a movie and published a book.

– Appropriate, appropriate, appropriate, okay. – And he’s a mustache. He’s a very, – really dense mustache. – therefore there’s nothing– he’s maintained their mustache over the past 40 years in the same way he’s – maintained their tale, Link. – Oh? we mean, if the mustache began to give slightly, we’d be, “Oh, we don’t think you,” but if you keep the mustache strong, the tale remains strong. – we don’t know. We’m grasping. – But he wears a suit now. – we’m grasping at… glass cylinders right here. – Yeah, let’s– – And levers. Inside planetarium. Pthbbt! – therefore, Barney and Betty, you got my vote. – we don’t know. Debate away. – Ha! Debate away! – Many thanks for taste and commenting. – You know what time it is. We’m Doug from Mesa, Arizona and it’s time to spin the Wheel of Mythicality. Nine from ten individuals report that wearing a Good Mythical Morning t-shirt while viewing Good Mythical Morning offers them a better experience! Click to Good Mythical More, in which we state what it would simply take for united states – to in fact think in alien abductions. – Wow, you got plenty going on over there.

Get a Mythical Mug… wear the top this way if you want to. – (Rhett) In a world… without pancakes. – Oh. (considerably) In a world without pancakes… Eat a waffle. We mean… it’s pretty… apparent. .
