Like I was saying....

Stocks from the future?

A friend emailed me this link to a crazy story. Basically the Securities and Exchange Commission have 44 year old Andrew Carlssin in jail for insider trading. He was able to turn $800 in to a whopping $350 million! The SEC just knew he had some well placed sources in different companies. But of course, like every inside trader, he had a very good story…. Oh boy did he.

He claims he’s a time traveler from 200 years in the future and that in “his time” it is common knowledger that our current era experienced one of the worst stock market crashes in history. So he came back, armed with market data, and played it up big.

Anyway, read the whold story by way of the link, but the last words are kinda striking:
Officials are quite confident the “time-traveler’s” claims are bogus. Yet the SEC source admits, “No one can find any record of any Andrew Carlssin existing anywhere before December 2002.”

This story also reminded me of one of Rachel’s entries in her journal. Time travel and it’s overlay and paradoxes can get my mind almost as twisted up as can trying to figure out how God got here the first place and how He exists outside of time.

    Alas too good to be true. 🙂 A google news search for Andrew Carlssin suggests it has been <a>debunked.

    You have to realize that this came from the Weekly World News. Well known for their Bigfoot and flying saucer crap.

    How was it debunked? I'll do the search later today to see.

    If this is an april fool, i'ts a real good one!
    However, if Mr Carlssin's story is for real,
    It'll be the end of civilization as we know it.

    I'd say: set him free so that he can reveil his secrets…What is 350 million nowadays? Worldcom managers stole more…

    I always though that time travel is absurde. Until an undisputable proof I won't believe it. Still I would like to travel in the past. 🙂

    It was from Weekly World News for crying out loud. The same people who brought you "BatBoy", "Clinton meets with Aliens" and "Heaven photographed by Hubble Telescope"
