The Safety Not Guaranteed Saga

Postby CubsFan7724 » Fri Feb 24, 2006 10:10 pm

I'm not quite sure who the user is, but there is someone here with this as his sig:

This was an actual ad placed in I believe an Oakland paper. Supposedly by John Titor, who claims to be a time traveler from 2036.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Titor

It was only a matter of time before the internets got a hold of it. Then a brilliant mind put it to music, specifically "Push it to the Limit" from Scarface. Hilarity ensued:
http://timetraveler.ytmnd.com/
Then one user claimed to had found this Civil War era picture of a Union soldier who was a dead look-alike to the mysterious time traveler.
http://civilwarsafety.ytmnd.com/
Followed by spinoffs-
http://mozartlimit.ytmnd.com/
http://totsafety.ytmnd.com/

So, who is this man? Random funny guy, or traveler from the future? I don't really care, but its lead to quite a funny internet meme.

What's the deal with .ytmnd anyway? I don't get it! I've stumbled on a few pages with those giant, shooting-toward-you words and I never quite understood it.

So, WTF mates?

People have too much time on their hands.



Not that I'm really one to talk. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

The civil war soldier's nose curves up while Titor's nose doesn't so they can't be the same.

Did you really need to make that comment in a thread about time travelling?

Man, that is one interesting story. Am I the only one that sees all of this as a guy just using an elaborate setup to propogate his personal political beliefs?

I read somewhere that a company "created" him in order to get them off the ground. If that was the case, it worked.
