How many of you have gotten spam about a lost time traveler needing a Dimensional Warp Generator? Or asking for your help if you happen to be either a time traveler or an alien disguised as a human? Here’s an excerpt from one I got over the summer:
“While it might be hard to find parts in this time to build anything decent, I need easy to follow schematics from the future to build a time machine which is safe and accurate that will not disrupt the time space continuum with both forward and backward capability accounting for temporal location settings (X, Y, Z, n), which can be built out of (readily available) parts here in 2003.”
I have another one that starts:
“If you are a time traveler or alien disguised as human and or have the technology to travel physically through time I need your help!”
Well, what I thought was a very bizarre joke has turned out to be real, at least in the mind of Robby Todino. According to this article on Wired.com, Robby really believes he needs to go back in time to repair his childhood (who doesn’t?). Apparently people have been playing along, too, setting up fake online stores and eBay auctions.
So if anyone out there really has a AMD Dimensional Warp Generator module containing the GRC79 induction motor, a 3 52 4350A watch unit, or a Acme 5X24 series time transducing capacitor with built-in temporal displacement, Robby really will pay you top dollar.
