Time Travel Challenge

Post Neon Knight on Wed 19 Jul - 22:01

Suppose you were transported 40 years back in time to 1977. Which two objects (small enough to carry) would you take with you to prove you had come from the future? You have only two hours to convince someone - no time to have anything scientifically analysed.

Magazine about smarthones and my digital camera would be my proofs.

Good answers, especially the magazine from magyar_lány (remember, there would be no wifi or digital transmissions to pick up).

But saying you are a time traveller is a big claim, and the past expectations of the future were a bit over-optimistic:

Laptop and camera would impress them. But enough to convince them? Maybe they would expect a magazine about houses on Mars  Alien

Maybe recent photographs or auto biographies of famous people that are old now,but were still in their prime in 1977. Queen Elizabeth or Jimmy Carter Come to mind. Might as well try to convince some one who is important.
I was going to say some of the new medications that are now available,like immunotherapy or L-Dopa. If there was only 2 hours and it could not be scientifically analyzed,then that would not work.
Maybe some viagra ?

I only can think of some surprising news or event which will happen the next day of my arrival to the past, but then we would have to wait to the next day to demonstrate my time travel is real.

Imagine the situation the other way around - what would it take for someone to convince you he or she was from 40 years in the future?
