Time Travelers from Out of Space

Filed under: Paranormal — Frank Fiore @ 12:48 PM

Is it actually possible for people to time travel? Have travelers from the future, and the past really visited the new? Some say they have. Below you will find FIVE of the strangest time travel stories ever recorded. From the man who was found dead in 1950—dressed like a man of the 1870’s to a clever trader who claimed to be from the future. These are five tales that will have you scratching your head with wonder…

Alexandria Alexis

Will time travel actually be invented in 2025? Apparently so, because urban legend has it that Alexandria Alexis was an alleged time traveler from said year who mysteriously disappeared on New Year’s eve 1899. If this were true, it would also dispel the myth of only being able to travel back to the point of the machine being invented. Continue reading for more pictures, stories and images.

John Titor

What will life be like in 2036? “Food and livestock is grown locally. People spend much more time reading and talking together face to face. Religion is taken seriously and everyone can multiply and divide in their heads.” That’s an entry from John Titor. Titor, a traveler from the future, first showed up on internet discussion boards in the 2000, making predictions about the years ahead. In 2001, he returned to the year 2036. Most of his predictions did not come true.

The Mutton Chops Man

In 1950, a man with mutton chop sideburns and Victorian-era duds popped up in Times Square. Witnesses said he looked startled, and then a minute later, he was hit by a car and killed.

On his person, the police found 19th-century money, a letter dated 1876 and business cards with his name – Rudolph Fentz. None of these items showed signs of aging. A Mrs. Rudolph Fentz was tracked down. She was the widow of Rudolph Fentz, Jr., and the story went that junior’s dad disappeared mysteriously in 1876.

Andrew Carlssin

The alarm bells went off on Wall Street and with the SEC in 2002 when unknown investor Andrew Carlssin quickly parlayed $800 into $350,000,000 via some high-risk stock trades. Carlssin was arrested. He confessed that he was from the year 2256. It turns out the story originated from that ever-sensational source of fakery, The Weekly World News. Ten years on, the story is still being reprinted and circulated.

Circa 1928

A woman walks through a film premiere crowd in Los Angeles talking on her cell. Not so remarkable. Until you consider the year is 1928. The clip, from bonus material on a DVD of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus, hit the internet in 2010. Never mind the obvious questions about non-existent satellites and cell towers back in the jazz age. The device was most likely an early hearing aid. Still, the clip is mind-teasingly fun to watch.
