Is There a Time Traveler Strolling Through Charlie Chaplin's 1928 Film, 'The Circus?'
I'm asserting jurisdiction over the intriguing video below under Rules 1 and 3 of the LBW Rules of Procedure based on the fact that (a) I saw it on the Consumerist blog, which is blawgish, and (b) "pick of the litter" jurisdiction applies here given that the underlying information may prove that time travel exists.
The video below lays out the case in detail, but by way of background, indie filmaker George Clarke was viewing the DVD special features of Charlie Chaplin's 1928 movie "The Circus" when he stumbled upon a scene that neither he nor any of the hundreds of people he has shown the scene to can explain: a woman strolling down the street talking on what appears to be a 21st century cell phone.
As Consumerist and Clarke observe, there were no cell phone towers or satellites in the 1920s, so how could the woman in the movie be talking on a cell phone unless she was a time traveler? Please take a look at the video (skip to the 1:45 mark or so if you are pressed for time) and help confirm or debunk the time travel theory in the comments below.
