Another Method of Finding Your Ancestors: Use Time Travel

NOTE: I have no way of verifying the accuracy of these claims. In fact, I have serious doubts about them. However, this story does present some intriguing facts and makes for interesting speculation.

Did a few time travelers from the year 8100 go back in time to see the past for themselves? Have time travelers from Suffolk in the year 8100 been attempting to make contact with the past through the use of UFOs and “complex pictures (crop circles) in English fields?”

Several books and web sites make that claim. They also speculate that the time travelers were here only to observe their history. Maybe they are future genealogists.

A former US Air Force commander claims to have gathered new evidence which proves that a UFO landed in 1980 in Rendlesham Forest, near a US airbase in Suffolk, England. Officially, there was nothing seen on radar that night. However, the “landing” or whatever it may have been was witnessed by 30 US servicemen, as well as by several British policemen.

The Reincarnation Machine: Who Might You Have Been in a Past Life?

Who were you in a previous life? To help you find out, Slate Magazine scraped tens of thousands of people from Wikipedia and built the Reincarnation Machine. Type in your birth date, and the machine will match you to somebody who died on your birth date or close to it. Then, it will match that person to somebody who died close to his or her birth date, and so on through history. Were you Elvis Presley? Lyndon Johnson? A Welsh stage actress? Type your birth date at http://goo.gl/BuiAb6 to find out!

Yeah, like I almost believe this stuff. I still want to see the documentation!

The Disadvantage of a Scottish Brogue

The Scots are a proud people. The are also fiercely proud of their accents. However, that accent can occasionally be a disadvantage, as shown in this YouTube video of two Scotsmen who are frustrated by an elevator that uses voice recognition. (Warning, some profanity is in the video.)

You can watch the video at http://youtu.be/PJj_nO46gq8 or in the video player below.

Going Back to Work after a Few Years Absence and a Change in Technology

This is perhaps the shortest video you’ve ever seen, so pay attention… A woman goes back to work after thirty years.

Watch carefully, the video is only 5 seconds long, but you’ll get it. If you’re younger than 40 years old, you probably won’t understand it.
