Time Travelers, it would seem, Don't Like Facebook.....

Scientists at Michigan Technological University recently scoured sites such as Facebook, Google and Google+ in the hopes of finding the digital tracks of possible time travelers.  No, I am not kidding!  Someone got PAID to do this! 

The study took place in the latter part of 2013.  Scientists Robert Nemiroff and Teresa Wilson searched the internet for posts made between January 2006 and September 2013 that made some reference to future events happening after September 2013.   Unfortunately  nothing they found could be considered trustworthy, or even accurate!    On Facebook, for example, posts have the option to be backdated, which would have made any discoveries virtually useless.

But unfortunately, the hunt came up blank. (NO KIDDING!)

But I am not kidding about this being a real study, you can read the complete article on Gizmodo HERE

I know!!!! my anime guy was sitting in when I came across this article and it was like it was custom made for BMU! Kookie fringe science like the study they did on dogs pooping. Seems they almost always line up with the magnetic north.....SCIENCE!
