And you thought your roaming fees were bad...I assume by now, anybody who's anybody has seen the startling footage of the time traveller to the 30s captured on film using a cell phone.  Solid, irrefutable proof of time travel.  If you haven't, well...prepare to have your very concept of reality shattered.  Your world will never be the same again. So take a moment to breathe it in.  Look at your kids, kiss your spouse, take in the beauty of an autumn day.  Embrace the simplicity. Then prepare to be shaken to your very core.


Are you back? I know. I felt the same way.  Take a moment, it's ok.  I know your first response is likely going to be denial. Disbelief. I've been trolling the internet, I know.  You're probably thinking. "If it's a cell phone, why is it so big? What, is he a traveler from the 80s?" or "Who's he calling? Even if there were two time travellers, there were no cell phone towers". "If they can time travel, why wouldn't they go back and undo this mistake?"  You may want to dismiss it, laugh it off, an move on. That's fine. No one will blame you.  Not everyone wants to be awakened.  Like Morpheus in The Matrix, you have a choice.

If you choose to press on, however, the explanation to those questions becomes glaringly obvious - It's a temporal cell phone.  It's obviously during the early days of time travel technology when, much like traditional cell phones, the phones were the size of bricks.  They're doing temporal experiments.  Some where in the future there's a person sitting in a room, watching the same movie clip over and over again, while the person in the film is saying:
    "Ok, I'm walking in front of the camera...can you see me now?" 
As for why they didn't undo it once it came to light..maybe they don't know. Sure there's hype now, but perhaps it died down over the ensuing centuries. Or maybe they are a victim of their own paradox experimentation, and can't undo it.  It's obviously the early days of the technology before, one assumes, they put in place strict protocols to avoid such situations.  At least they tried to minimize the impact.
 "How would we do this? I can't just show up in the middle of Tremors XVI eating a burrito!"
  "No, we go farther back. In my attic, my great grandpa, he had tons of these old discs. Here, look, this one. It's a two hundred year old DVD of a three hundred year old movie, and there's a slew of outtakes on the second disc. So you got at least a hundred years before the outtakes are even public and, really, who's going to see it? They're grainy as heck, it's a few seconds, it's an ancient outtake from an ancient movie on an ancient format.What's the risk?"

Now you know. The real question is - What are you going to do about it?
