Time Travel Investigation

image
A study has been done to check the internet for signs of time travelers. Robert Nemiroff, physicist from Michigan Technical University, authored the study that checked a number of social media sites for posts mentioning events before they occurred. They found nothing but did say that is not conclusive. I guess it could just indicate that time travelers are discrete.

Follies of the Madmen #208



Where to begin with this long ad? The surrealism of a Corvette on the Bonanza set? The notion that a sexy spy like Napolean Solo would drive a Corvair? The mashup of Bewitched with Bonanza characters, including the ultra-campy Agnes Moorehead? It's a commercial that just keeps on giving in the weirdness department.

Despite being advertising for a video game, these mini-cartoons are still pretty weird and funny.

Follies of the Mad Men #44

image
[From Life magazine for September 30 1940.]

Either a 20th-century man's shoe has been transported through time back to pre-Columbian America, confounding the primitive redksins, or else some 20th-century Native Americans on some especially traditional and cloistered reservation somewhere are incredibly ignorant.

Or, some Madison Avenue genius thought this was brilliant.
