Hello, my name is David Southgate. I am from this universe, but not from this time. I don't know how or why it happened, but I'm originally from 1957. I think I somehow leaped through time someway or another. I've been here for roughly 1 year and 7 months. I will be happy when I celebrate 2016 in my apartment. I am 24 years old, and was born on May 3rd, 1933. I need somebody that might be able to bring me back to my home. After being here for about 1 year and 7 month, I've picked up most of the slang people use in this time, although every once in a while I'll use a 1950's word and people will just look at me wondering what the heck that means. Anyways, I bet a lot of people are wondering how I jumped though time. Well, it all started when I woke up at around 9:45 to hear my grandpa. I went downstairs and saw him working on the car in the garage. I helped him and all of a sudden, I started to feel sick to my stomach. I told my grandpa I wasn't feeling good and I went to the bathroom. After about 20 minutes I was feeling better. I was about to go out with my friend William, John, Betty, Mary, and James. So, we went into our small town, and after a movie we decided we were still hungry, even after the popcorn. So, we went to a restaurant, and suddenly, I felt sick to my stomach again. I told them I didn't feel to good, so I went to the bathroom. I was looking in the mirror, and I felt this weird sensation. I started to feel better. I decided to walk out and to my shock, they weren't at the table. I thought I was only in there for 5 minutes, so I looked at my watch. It had only been 4 minutes, or so I thought. I thought they were playing a prank on me, so I decided to go look for them. When I walked out, I couldn't believe my eyes. I realized for the first time this wasn't 1957. After a lot of research I finally found out I was in 2014. I was shocked. So, I decided to start fresh, but still looking for a way to get back to 1957. I'm a regular at the restaurant now, and I go in the bathroom each time to see if I could get back. It hasn't worked. Last time I went was last week. Also, it seems I've stopped aging for some reason. Side effect maybe? Tell me if anyone could help me, thank you in advance. :D

Another toilet time traveler. This could be the start of something huge. :rolleyes:

Ok, joking aside, I've got some questions for you.

What was your reaction when you learned that the communists won the cold war?

If someone sent you back to 1957, would you do everything in your power to stop the communists and defeat their agenda using knowledge from the future?

What is your favorite type of car?

Do you like the Chordettes?

How do you make money in this time if your identification documents say you're 82 years old?

Well, when I found out about the Cold War I was just happy no bombs were fired. So, technically, I was revealed.
No. I have always thought that if you changed the future knowing it, it could lead to bad change, even if it's intention is good
My favorite car, is a 1954 Cadillac Coupe Deville. It's what my grandpa had.
I was always more of an Abbott and Costello type of guy.
I just say I'm 24, hold up my license, and put my thumb over all the dates.
And thank you for the warm welcome, Num

Got any source souveniers you got back at your time? What about showing us your shirt/clothing when you "stumbled" into the future? Surely you'll look out of place with an out-dated clothing and surely you kept your "old" clothes to remember your.. Uh... Original time thingy (timeline or whatever).

Im sorry, but are you really trying to tell us, you simply
just say I'm 24, hold up my license, and put my thumb over all the dates
Nobody would even consider your totaly different ID/drivers licence for real.
It's not just the date. The overall design is off.
Would be more believable saying you got a fake ID.

You dont smoke, drink or drive i assume.
(the smoking part is hard to believe if you are from 1957 - but hey not impossible)
After a lot of research I finally found out I was in 2014. I was shocked
Really?
So you step out of the restaurant, you see like ten times more traffic, with strange cars you never seen before, people are running around with their heads down looking into a box (cellphone), buildings are different, let alone the street lighting is a lot more, and different as well, and you say it took a lot of research?

Come on David.

Really?
I was only an apprentice so I didn't work long hours
I applied at mechanic store as an old car specialist. I work from like 7:30 am to about 4:30 sometimes as late as 6:00 though
Must be nice to work just half the hours since 57.

"old car specialist" - yeah they are still using modern shops and modern tools.
Do you sweep the floors there or did you master everything after long research?
Social Security card, not needed?
Or do you just cover the whole design of your 50's card?

Working "illegally"?
That i would believe you.
Num7: Were you able to find what happened to the people you know from 1957?
David Southgate: Well, my mom and dad died, and my brother and sister, who knows where they are
Num7: I'm surprised you weren't able to find out what happened to them.
Num7: They would be pretty old by now though, right?
Num7: Like 80 years old or more.
David Southgate: I've already tried that, but there were so many, I just didn't know where to start.
David Southgate: Like, there are so many Robert southgates
Again really?

If they are not hiding, that should be quite easy.
text me their full name, birthdate, state and city where they lived in, pictureS and any info you can spare.

I'll give it a try. And i have experience in that.

Overall you are not really convincing.

Your puntuation and writing skill implies that this is not your first rodeo, but thats just a gut feeling.
A writer/author maybe?
Just remember to pull the plug soon enough.

BTW: I enjoyed your story. One of the better ones lately. Thumbs up for that.

edit:
Traveler Malaki
: Did they react at all to seeing someone with 1950s clothing walk out of a restroom
David Southgate: Everyone just thought I was dressed up about to go to a party

Last REALLY for today?
It's 2014 ,nobody would give a crap what you wear.
The everyone just thought part is a line you would use in a book.Or now you are a psychic as well?

I didn't even bring a newspaper with me.

You know, that was just a guess. I have no idea what they thought. People didn't give me three looks before going back to their regulaur routine, so that's just what I figured.

Thank you. The full name is Robert Southgate. April 7th, 1930. New York in Albany. I don't have any pictures since I wasn't carrying anything other then some money. I have no idea about his whereabouts now though.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Wow, not happy with it I see!!!

Are you disappointed that we still plug things into the wall for electricity?
What are your thoughts of Nikola Tesla?
What are you theories about how you jumped time?
Do you still have the clothes you wore when you "jumped"?
How/when did you learn to use a computer?
What inspired you to post to a message board?
