  • Woman Caught on Tape Talking on a Cell Phone in 1928

    I'm not one for conspiracy theories, and I feel there's probably some other explanation (she's scratching her face, she's insane, this video has been fabricated, etc.), but this video is pretty nuts.

    I saw that. very strange, but i'm sure there's a logical explanation for it.

      Assuming it's not a hoax, the commenters mentioned an early version hearing aid - not too farfetched that if you just got such cutting-edge tech (for the times), you might try listening to the sound of your own voice. The idea of a time-travelling celphone user is ridiculous on at least three different levels - I'll let you all have fun guessing which three I have in mind. Good way to sell Chaplin collector sets, though.

        Wondering how well a cell phone works without cell towers and the rest of the necessary infrastructure. LOL. Not to mention... who would she be talking to? Besides, if time travel were possible I doubt it would be the geriatric crowd making the trip.

          jup, I'm betting pretty strongly on the hearing aid.

            I think if one's developed the necessary tools for time travel the lack of cell phone towers, and the limited range of current communication devices, are pretty easy hurdles to clear.

              The black object in her hand looks like an early hearing aid. But apparently those were worn in, say, a shirt pocket, not held to the ear. The only person she could be talking to is the man. If she was hard of hearing, it seems like they would be walking together. I'm thinking maybe a crystal radio. I suppose she could be singing along or talking to the man, or herself.

              Spooky, but not time travel.

                Cell towers are the Stargate. Look it up on the toobs.

                it's troof.

                I saw a utoob video about it once that blamed obama for murdering ron paul, and our gold nuggz.

                  I've done some looking and I can't find any device from that time period that would fit what she is doing. I'm a bit of an old tech. buff, and I've seen several of the hearing aids from that time period and they wouldn't be used like that. She's walking AND talking into the thing which is not how these aids worked. They were for hearing, not transmitting sound.

                  The other oddity that nobody has picked up on is the use of her left hand. Very few people were left handed in those times as they were almost always forcibly changed during their school years. She should have been holding her purse in her left hand and this device in her right hand. It's just another clue that there is something very odd about this lady. Time traveler? I'll wait and see, but there's no doubt that she sure doesn't seem to fit into that time period...

                    I'm not ready to jump on the time traveller bandwagon just yet, but I can't see this being a hearing aid. Wouldn't they be using vacuum tubes back then? The hearing aid would have been a big ass box with a seperate battery pack. I'm no tech guy, so I might by totally off base here.

                      Yes, most of the hearing aides that were powered were quite large.

                        Who ever it is, male or female, must be from the future: the person is fat.

                            I saw this a couple of days back, and after extensive research I have arrived at the following conclusion.

                            It's the frickin' Illuminati, man..

                              Why would someone from the future travel to the 1920s and look so out of place? It looks like a giant fat butch women, walking around talking to herself.

                              You would think that if it was a time traveler he/she/it would have a little more intelligence to not walk around in public talking to a hitech device - especially in those days.

                              Not to mention he/she/it walked infront of a camera. How dumb could you be?
