    How would one be talking on a mobile phone 70 years before the first cell tower went up?

    Oh... wait... logic confuses the retards. Sorry.

    Well,Obviously the cell phone tower was brought with them, duh! :roll:

    It's obviously not a cell phone, but it would be interesting to know what it is.

    It's probably a novelty item she purchased in the lobby, such as a box of jumping beans or chinese crickets.

    Cell phones that size didn't appear until what... 70 years after that film was made?

    If someone walked down the street with technology from 25 years from now, say ... a holographic field that surrounded their head, or on a hoverboard do you suppose the people surrounding that individual might make a bit of a scene? No one reacts at all that way in the film. No one notices the woman talking aloud to 'imaginary friends'.

    Just a few years ago, someone walking around with one of these in 1984, was an amazing sight.

    Imagine the stares someone talking to No one and wearing one of these would have gotten.

    By the time time-travel is invented, there won't even BE cellphones, such as we know them today. Hell, we already have cellphones that outperform Star Trek communicators.

    She probably got stung by a bee on the ear or cheek or something relatively simple.

    Another possibility is she didn't want to be caught on one of those new fangled cameras and was trying to hide.

    Current theoretical physicist believe that a time machine can only send particles back to the time when the machine was first turned on.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRWwI61s ... re=related "The First Time Machine"

    Also, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku has said that the energy needed to travel back in time would be equal to an exploding star. We don't have that kind of energy available at the moment. Cold fusion, though? Maybe?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X02WMNoH ... re=related "Is Time Travel Possible?"

    Einstein's theories allow for time travel. It is possible, but it doesn't appear to be anything that we are going to achieve anytime soon, unless we figure out cold fusion, and how to harness that energy.

    Also, you can only go back to the time when the machine was turned on. I doubt someone had a working time machine back in 1920. :mrgreen:

    There are of course many different theories, though.

    Back in those days, people hard of hearing held a horn type hearing device up to their ear.

    1984 is "just a few years ago?"

    That's funny...

    It's still an amazing sight today to see somebody talking on something like that. :lol:

    Actually, it has been identified as an early hearing aide which was indeed held up to the ear in such a manner.

    Acid is far superior for "taking the trip, but not leaving the farm."

    They said on the news these were invented about 10 years later.
