There is a time machine for sale over on eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1469&item=55634905 18&rd=1) if anyone is interested. If you buy it, let us know how it works.


Hello, I am selling what I believe to be a time machine that was built in the year 2239 by Dr. J. S. Strauss. I found the machine under my house when I was doing remodeling to the bathroom. The machine was hidden in a old rotten wood chest along with some other findings that I believe to be related to the machine like old pictures, letters, ect. I dont know to much about time machines or electronics, but from my observations I believe that the machine might have caught on fire, at some time or another from the looks of the inside, and is now in a non working condition. It also looks like there might be some parts missing on the inside, but I dont know. The time machine itself is not to heavy it weighs 20 pounds and it is 18" high by 23" wide and 11" depth.


From what I put together from all of the findings is that Dr. J. S. Strauss who built the machine in 2239 went into the past to the early 1900's and the time machine broke down or caught on fire or something. From the pictures and letters it looks like he was living in southern california for a while, it looks like he also met some friends and a girlfriend there.

We must go through some pretty rough times before 2239. Why, the advanced electronics in that device look like something that was made in the 1960's! Wow! I wonder if we will go back to horse and buggy before we reinvent television?

Seriously (!) I have made several working time machines. However, I am unable to get them to accelerate beyond moving forward in time at 1 second per second.

You know, when you phrase it like that, it makes it sound like it should be easy to change that ever so slightly.

There are no large pictures of it... The thumbnail links back to the main page. :roll: And it looks like an old casset player with a case mod. Pretty blatant fraud, this.
