Hello, sorry for intruding


New Member
I came here from 2046. It's comforting to use one of these computers again. I remember them from when I was a child. Computers 31 years from now are terribly drab. Sorry, I'm getting off topic. My name is Cathrine. Cathrine Faye Johnson, to be exact. I was born in the year 2000, and I am part of the first group in my future to "perfect" time travel. I put that in quotes as we had not worked out how to move forwards in time at the time of me volunteering to use the machine. Since I am stuck here, I may as well tell you the events that occurred up to my departure. I am not sure whether me posting this, or even typing this, will change anything in the future, but I must tell of my timeline.

Welcome Cathrine, you certainly made an impressive start with us :)

There will be many of our members on Paranormalis wanting to ask you questions, so may i start by asking if you would tell us as much as you can about the time-machine you came to us in please?:)

I didn't build it, I was only a "Guinea Pig" for it, and my arrival was a few months back. I will try to draw it as best I can from memory.

Here is a picture of it
The machine had a big metal chair in the cockpit. You would sit in the chair, stick the key in, prime the ignition, set the date in the past, and pull the lever. I was the second person to test, so I was able to see it from 2 perspectives. Within seconds of pulling the lever you would vanish from view. 5 seconds later, the machine's lever would reset. When you actually travel, it is an awful explosion of senses. First your vision turns white and a sound I can only equate to screaming can be heard. Then it smells like sulfur and seawater. Then you start to taste something along the lines of warm milk. The whole while you are being violently ragdolled about. This goes on for what feels like 10 seconds (could be shorter or longer, or infinite, I mean time is relative). After it's over it deposits you out where the machine is located at noon on the date you set. I fell 5 feet when I arrived.

You make it sound like the time-machine in the first movie called the Time Machine, back in 1960 :D
Although the picture you drew was obviously different :)
Thank you for sharing with us :)

I have not seen that movie, although you have piqued my interest. Is it an enjoyable movie?
And I'm glad you approve of the information I am providing.


Why was 2015 chosen? What is your motive for posting and revealing that you are a time traveler? You do realize that we have impostors every few months, so we're going to ask a lot of questions.

  • UN places more sanctions on Russia

Greetings, earthling. So far, as of 2015, the UN has not sanctioned Russia. Instead, it was the US, EU, and maybe a few other countries. Getting the UN to do so could be difficult, due to Russia's status as a permanent member of the UN security council. It is possible that the UN could ultimately be abolished, much like the League of Nations, due to conflict.
