Time Travel

The subject of time has always intrigued us. Is it as set as we have always believed? Or does time loop back on itself, giving us a glimpse of a shadowy past out of the corner of our eye.

Was is just our imagination that made us believe we had seen an object or building change before our very eyes, and seem as though we had stepped back into the past?

When this happens we usually shake our heads and put it down to imagination. But over the last few decades, something strange has been happening in or near Bold Street, Liverpool England. Not just a glimpse of the past, but full immersion into the strange and mysterious world of English History, if only for a few moments at a time.

Ooh! I love this book! I recently bought it as a gift for someone and guess what? I kept it!

I love Time Travel stories. Especially real life ones!

Well worth buying! So good its edible!

 

Step Back To The 1950s And 60s

The strange thing about the Bold street time slips, is the actual time and place they are set. In the following cases, the people involved do not go back really far, but seem to visit a particular decade or decades.

So far, most of the sightings have centered around the 1950’s and 60's. This is strange in itself. Most time travel experiences seem to take the recipient back to the 18th or 19th century. But not in this case.

Are these people simply copying each other in their experiences, or are they genuinely taking a step back in time?

The answer to this has to take into account whether they are doing it deliberately to get noticed. In other words are the perpetuating a hoax?

Another explanation could be mass hallucination.

And last but not least, they really are experiencing this strange phenomena!

The most important point is, the very first person that had this experience, obviously totally believed in what he saw, heard and felt.

So, does time flow like a river? Or does it twist and turn, going forward then sweeping back, picking up historic events and placing them down in front of you, if only for a few moments?

Frank and Carol

In this first tale, we find Frank and his wife out for a stroll in Liverpool town center.

It is 1996.

His wife decided that she wanted to go and buy a book at Waterstone's the large book store, and they started to walk towards the area of the shop.

As they approached Bold street, Frank decided to go to another shop first, but bumped into his friend, and stopped to chat in the street. His wife went ahead without him.

A few moments later, Frank said goodbye, visited his shop and turned to go back to meet his wife. After reaching Bold Street, he headed on towards the bookstore. As he approached, he glanced up and was surprised to see the name, Cripps above the door. As he was about to cross over to see what was going on, a van swept past him with the name Cardin’s on the side. The van drive honked his old fashioned horn and drove past.

Looking around, Frank suddenly realized that things were not quite what they should be. He looked at the cars driving past and realized that they were all old fashioned vehicles such as people would drive back in the 50's and 60's.

And then he noticed the people. Men were wearing hats and macs, and the women were dressed in head scarves, full skirts and had old fashioned hair styles such as women wore just after the war.

By this time, Frank was beginning to feel slightly freaked out. He carried on crossing the road and headed towards the store.

As he got closer he noticed in the window there were handbags, shoes and umbrellas. Suddenly he saw a young woman looking up at the shop sign. She looked confused.

She was wearing modern clothes and as she saw him approaching, she smiled at him.


Frank went into the shop, closely followed by the young women. When they entered he was surprised and pleased to see that it had indeed turned back into a bookshop. The young women smiled, shook her head and said, 'that was strange, I thought it was a new clothes shop!' then she walked away looking extremely puzzled.

This may sound an unlikely tale, but the odd thing about it is that Frank was in fact a former Police officer who was used to dealing in facts, and definitely wasn't the type of person who would believe in the paranormal.

Frank never stopped talking about it. Was this a time slip? Evidently Cripps was a women’s shop that sold clothes and other goods decades before!

And Cardin’s was also a well known Liverpool firm that owned vans around the same time.

Imogen And The MotherCare Store

The second story concerns a young girl by the name of Imogen. She had decided to go into Liverpool to buy her sister Abigail a few things for her new baby. Upon arriving she was happy to see a new MotherCare store that had opened up on the corner of Lord Street and Whitechapel.

She wandered around the store, and picked up a few baby items such as cardigans, baby bibs, and gloves. She was surprised to see how cheap the items were, but thought they were on offer as the store had just opened. Taking them to the counter, she tried to pay with her credit card. The staff member looked at her suspiciously, and went off to get the manager.

When she came back, she looked at the card and told Imogen that they didn't take cards. So, disappointed, Imogen went and put the items back as she hadn't any money with her.

When she got home, she told her mother what had happened. Her mother was surprised and really puzzled. ‘That store closed years ago,’ she said. 'There is a bank there now, in fact that’s where I have my account'.

Not believing her, Imogen took her mother back to the same place the next day. Sure enough the store wasn’t there. It was a bank, just as her mother had told her.

A Thief Goes Back To 1967

The third tale is of a young man named Sean, who, while shop lifting in Liverpool back in 2006, ran away from a Security Guard and headed down Hanover Street. Trying to shake off the Guard, Sean, 19, turned into a dead end street called Brookes Alley.

By this time he was out of breath and started to get a tight sensation in his chest. He soon realized that actually it wasn't a problem with him, but the atmosphere around him.

He waited for the Guard to come around the corner after him, but he never appeared. So, thinking he had given him the slip, he sauntered back out and started to walk down Hanover street again. But he soon realised that something was wrong.

The road looked different, and so did the pavement. He noticed cars driving by that looked very old fashioned, and the road works that he knew were there, were now gone.

Soon he saw that the people around him were wearing strange clothes. Crossing over to Bold Street, he noticed that there were traffic lights where they weren't before, and bushes growing around the Lyceum, near a bar that he recognized.

He carried on walking. Soon he began to feel that something was not quite right. Then he began to panic. He realized that somehow he had stepped back in Time. And the Timeslip was not going away.

Then he remember his Cell phone. Taking it out of his pocket, he tried to get a signal, but of course it didn't work. Eventually he began to really panic, but soon spotted a kiosk selling newspapers and headed over.

Leaning over the Stand, he took a look at the front page of the Daily Post. There in bold lettering was the date. 18th May 1967.

He wondered what to do. What happens if he can't get back to his own time? What about family and friends?

So, speeding up his pace, he reached H. Samuel the Jewelers, and tried his phone once again. This time it worked. Sighing with relief he looked around and realised that he had returned to the present. But the strange thing was, he could still see, down the end of the road, people still walking around in 1967.

By this time Sean had seen enough, and dived onto a bus to go home. When he was interviewed by the local newspaper later, he stated over four times, the exact account.

Now, you may think that Sean was making the story up to escape from the guard. But the strange tale didn't end there. When the Security Guard was interviewed, he stated that when he ran after Sean, and turned down the dead end Alley after him, he said that Sean had completely disappeared!

When the newspaper checked out the facts of Sean's story, they found that everything he said was historically accurate.


Timeslip Mystery

These three stories are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many tales from around Liverpool that tell of Timeslips, ghosts and other strange phenomenon. The stories keep coming thick and fast, and of course the more tales, the more likely people will start to believe that they are all being made up, or as the saying goes, Urban Tales. So, what do you think? Real life timeslips, imagination, mass hallucination or purely tales that have started out as fun but have turned into the greatest Urban Legends of all time.

My opinion is that, yes, something did happen. Probably to the first guy, Frank who was just out shopping with his wife. The others? Maybe it was a case of mistaken roads, taking a wrong turning or just a glitch in the persons memory. By the time they get home they totally believe what happened.

Or is it true? There are so many cases concerning Bold Street, and just about anywhere else in Liverpool, that maybe, just maybe they are all living on top of the biggest Timeslip Phenomena in the World.

Do You Believe That Bold Street Liverpool Is Timeslip Central?

  • 8% No, its an Urban Legend
  • 57% Yes, totally. I believe in Timeslips
  • 30% Not Sure
  • 5% Its all hokum

      Great article on a subject that I find fascinating, thanks. I've experienced a couple of things which could be explained by time slips.

      Firstly, I used to live on the site of an old papermill and would often hear machinery noises and see a green light when the noises started up. I later went to a working mill and the noises were identical and there were lights on the machines, green for on, red for off.

      Secondly, when visiting a friend at her farm for the first time she asked if I'd found the place easily. I told her yes, I spotted the black wrought-iron farm sign at the bottom of the track so knew I was at the right place. She then told me that sign, which I described to her in detail hadn't been there for years and there was no sign at all.

      I think this phenomenon happens more often than we realise. I wouldn't have known about the second instance had my friend not asked if I found the farm easily.

      Going into the future would be good, but consider going into the period after you died and the effect on your family and friends.

      But you could end up foundng a new religion :)

      I lived in Liverpool for four years from 1985-1989 as a uni student and whenever I return today I always find it a fascinating place that I feel very drawn to. Two things happened to me when I was living in Croxteth Road, Toxteth. One night I went alone to the all night garage on Ullet Road / Smithdown Road to buy chocolate. It wasn't that late and there were a few people around. On my way home in Ullet Road I suddenly became aware of someone talking close to me. I couldn't make out the words though. Then I realised as a man passed me that I was probably hearing his thoughts. As if this wasn't strange enough, a few minutes later I opened the door of the big Victorian house where I had a flat and for a moment I saw it as a Victorian hallway. A young woman in a blue silk dress stood towards the bottom of the stairs and there were two large greyhounds staring at me. There was a reddish Persian rug. Then in a blink it was all gone. Time slip? The other time was at a friend's flat in a house round the corner in Grove park. Her landlady had a piano in the hall which had been played by John Lennon as Brian Steon had cpnnnectipns with that house. Upstairs alone in the kitchen of the flat, I was sitting enjoying the Autumnal sunshine coming through the window when I became aware of a cold breeze and the feeling that someone was walking in front of me, across the room. Could it have been Brian or John? There was a feeling of peace and calm and it was in no way scary.

      I do believe we live in a multi-layered universe, which would account for all kinds of paranormal events to slip into our reality. These include ghost; UFO's and alien encounters.

      To the comment that spoke of other places in the U.K. with timeslips. I'm quite certain that Glastonbury has something similar. I lived there for four or five years in the early to mid 80's and you were forever hearing about people thinking they were going into one shop and it being completely different, odd sightings sounds around the Tor, and there was just a very weird energy. I only once encountered a similar feeling and that was in Santa Fe New Mexico. Anyway great read, it made me miss the Uk for some odd reason.

      I wonder what would have happened if any of these people had interacted with those from the past and made reference to future historical Liverpool events such as the assassination of John Lennon which would occur in December 1980.

      Thanks for commenting Alex, I know what you mean. I am not sure about future time slips I have tried to find a few, but can't seem to find them on here? I am a great believer in quantum physics, and that will show the answer eventually. Someone said maybe we are all holograms, I laughed, but....! i would love to hear you theories, thanks for reading.

      I found this when googling for time slip cases as part of research for a book I am trying to write about time. Interesting cases and with similarities to a lot of other time slip cases. I think there are at least three types of time slip and some bear a resemblance to UFO encounters.

      I have also come across some cases of timeslips into the future and possible slips into alternative universes. Right now I do not have a model or theory for what is going on or a set of theories to cover different types of slip

      hi Lynda, Wow! that is amazing! And why not? most people would say a certain time or clothing to show the past, and even music etc. but of course at one stage or another over the last 100 years or so that shop would have been empty! and you just happened to catch it at that point! Fantastic! lol! and I am of course totally jealous! Nice one! and thanks for letting me know about your time slip! nell

      Something weird happened to me today in Bold Street. I was looking for a newly opened shop called COW. I was told that it was next to Costa Coffee shop but when I got there the shop next to Costa was empty with just some old stuff lying around inside, looked like it had been empty for a long time. I continued to walk up Bold Street but couldn't find the shop, turned round and walked back then went into Costa and asked in there about this new shop. The person I asked said yes it's next door you have just walked past it. Feeling silly I went back outside and there it was just as she had said with a large yellow sign saying COW in the window. I had never heard of Bold Street time slips before but on telling a friend what had happened to me he told me about the phenomena. Unfortunately I didn't see anything from the 1940's 50's or 60's but I did see an empty shop.

      Wow! thanks M Lane! that is amazing! I love to hear more stories! as for the one when you arrived early I do believe time does these funny things. and o f course I do believe in other dimensions too, so it could have been either one, you never know! thanks for reading, nell

      I think that time slips happen more often than we think and that we should pay attention to our surroundings for anomolies. For example people dressed in a manner which is out of the time, it could be just a little bit out but could be significant. The same with watching someone seemingly doing something over again. We saw a man who was dressed in seventies clothes but didn't think much about it because retro is in, but we sat there and we saw the same man with long sandy hair walk past again in exaclty the same way. I supposed he could have doubled back and then walked down again but I think we woulod have noticed him if he had doubled back and then walked the exact same way again.

      I am a nurse and i remember a night staff member saying to me that I had been early this morning, had gone for a coffee in the rest room until it was time to start. I said I thought I had arrived the same time as usual. She was adamant that she had seen me through the window arriving early and that she had even waved to me. The odd thing was I had dreamed of arriving early before I woke up.

      HIya JG exactly! I totally agree with your ideas, yes can you imagine a few years ago? a mobile/cell phone doing all those things, and speaking to people just by text let alone talking! there is so much out there we don't know, and it drives me nuts when we see someone, usually a man on tv with that look on his face saying 'No, there is no such thing as psychic phenomena! poor guy, LOL! thanks again, and have a great weekend. :)

      Good point. I've had a few "paranormal" experiences - which seemed perfectly NORMAL to me! - that I still won't reveal on the net, for the very reasons you mention. As for science's attempts to find a "logical" explanation for such events, I have to throw in that communicating electronically with others half way round the world using a small handheld device we now call a Smartphone was deemed "impossible" and in the realm of voo-doo. In another hundred years or so, I therefore predict that telepathic communication and things like time slips will be considered "normal". It's all a matter of understanding the clues right in front of our noses. For instance, it was discovered recently that time "bends" in space, i.e. in those "galaxies far, far away", so why not here on Earth too??? Just sayin'...

      Hiya, and of course if people don't write about their experience on the internet we may never know about it. it could be an older man or woman who are to embarrassed to mention it or not know how to use the computer. its like Deja Vu, maybe we have been there before. science always tries to find an explanation but sooner or later quantum physics will show us the truth, nell

      After what I said in my previous comment, it occurs that perhaps Liverpool isn't the only English town with a recurring time slip. Other places, things don't change as dramatically as they do in LP, so no one notices a shift. Except *I* did that time on a deserted side street in London, when the asphalted street surface briefly became cobble-stoned. Who knows what era I was transported back to for a few moments!

      Joanna McKenna 14 months ago from Central Oklahoma

      Hi yourself, Nell! Yes, wouldn't it be lovely to experience a time slip in your own neighborhood! But then, you DO live in a place where not much (if any) has changed in some parts of it for hundreds of years, so maybe you have experienced a slip and didn't realize it. (There. That ought to keep you awake for a couple of nights wondering...or generate a new hub. tee hee)

      Alas, my mind has been stuck in the far north of England since last fall, compiling a coherent account of ancestors from Cumberland and Westmorland. One of which, I learned recently, was Thomas Savage, in whose home the Duke of Cumberland spent the night after the Battle of Clifton Moor, which occurred a few months before Culloden.

      Hope all is well with you and yours! ;D

      Nell, I saw Grace's incredible account of her experience on Bond street before you did, but chose not to comment until after you'd had a chance to "ooh" and "ah". Your reaction was roughly the same as mine, with the same OMG questions. One thing I would add is that Grace's experience indicates, in her case at least, that there was a definite boundary between the present and the past, whereas other reports don't because the fact that there was a switch didn't register immediately. Veddy interesting! ;D

      This happened to me in Bold Street around the late 90's in exactly the same place as shown on the photo above ... I stepped out of Central Station next to the Lyceum and put my foot on the road to head across to Waterstones. In a split second the scene changed ... and a hansom cab went past me heading towards the cathedrals ... followed by lots of people in what I can only describe as being like the people on the Quality Street tins ... I'm hopeless at history so I don't have a clue what era they were. It was the hats I noticed most as I tried to take in what I was seeing. The ladies wore bonnets with brims and the gents wore top hats and dark suits. Several couples walked straight past me as if they didn't see me. I immediately thought I must have walked into a film set but there were no cameras about ... and anyway I couldn't have because when I stood on the pavement everyone was in the present time ... yet as soon as I stepped onto the road ... everything went into a different dimension. At first I was confused and scared ... and then just really scared as I thought about what would have happened to me had I been unable to step back into the present time again.

      That is amazing boilymoon! and proves a very good point, yes it probably is you or us that go back in time for a second, not the other way round! as you said, if only you were older, knew more about it and knew how to take it all in then how amazing that would have been! but like all of us its a split second, then afterwards we say, damn, why didn't I...? thanks so much for adding to this amazing phenomenon, if it happens again next time see if you can speak to them, how amazing would that be? nell

      Slight edit - the ramp I walked down was the Ranelagh Street one, not the one from Bold street.

      Hi people,

      Interesting article and I thought i'd share this with you as its relevant.

      I've seen one of these Time Slips and can give a first hand account.

      When I was 20 (so about 24 years ago) I was making my way through Liverpool to see my girlfriend. I needed to catch a train from Central Station which as you may know is right in the area of Bold street.

      So as usual I walked down the large ramp that led from Bold Street (you can see it on google street view) into the station and towards the entrance at the far end. Causally glancing around I wasn't really paying much attention - man on a mission, my lady was waiting!

      I shot a look to the right and registered something odd straight away - my pace slowed though I kept walking. There on the right, was a cafe/coffee shop - it had sprung up out of nowhere. At the time I thought it was odd as my girlfriend and I often went to places around there and only the other day had walked down the same ramp and that cafe was definitely NOT there then, and neither had anyone been working on any such shop either.

      To make the situation even stranger, everyone in the shop and the few that were sat outside were all dressed in very old clothes (i'm guessing now looking back on it around the 1900's). The women that I saw were wearing large hats and looked very "out of place" - my first thoughts were "is something being filmed" and maybe it was a "special" day the cafe was doing and everyone was getting dressed up. So I just put down my lack of noticing it there before as being one of down to age and not really paying attention - I've changed... :)

      I glanced ahead to make sure I wasn't going to walk into someone and when I immediately looked back, the cafe was gone.

      At the time I just put it down to me being weird but it was only recently that I heard about Time Slips and made the connection and it bugs me to this day that I didn't just walk over to the cafe and talk to the people there. However, I was really freaked out and whilst others have said "I'd ask someone to look me up" I can assure you that the actual event is so disconcerting that you don't think along those lines - the first emotion you experience is fear and an overriding sense that something is VERY wrong.

      It is odd that others don't seem to witness the event at the time and I'd have thought that such activity would be recorded on the CCTV in the area (of which there is LOADS).

      My theory is that it is YOU that is transported in time - hence the story of Sean the thief in 1967 where the guard reported that he just vanished.... This would explain why the event it limited to just the one person but also explains why nothing would be found on any CCTV footage.

      I'm certainly convinced they exist. Had I not seen one with my own eyes I, like probably so many others would just put it down to various other factors and chalk it up against "odd stuff that people believe in".

      Hi Nell - congratulations on winning 2 hubbie awards! Wow! And you get 2 prizes! So exciting! I loved this tale of time slips. It's all so Twilight Zone and Star Trek. While I don't really follow these types of stories, it has certainly made me think. Perhaps a time slip explains ghost sightings. Maybe ghosts are not the dead wandering around, but us somehow able to see something of the past.

      Drats! Only the UK version is available on Netflix. I've seen a few snippets of it elsewhere and prefer the American version, which oddly seemed easier to follow than the UK's. Not always the case when UK shows are Americanized. They lose something in the "swim" across the Pond. ;D

      Hi Nell,

      Just stopped by to see what's new in the world of time slips and had to leave a comment about dave's most interesting and provocative question (from 2 months ago), i.e. leaving one's Smart phone, wallet, credit cards, etc with someone in 1967 with a request to "look me up" in 2015.

      Hopefully, it'd be with someone young and healthy with a good chance of still being alive almost 50 years in the future. But what if that person died young, say in the 80s or early 90s before smart phones and such existed? Would his family/heirs hang on to the items until 2015 and make the attempt to return them?

      At any rate, a question worth pondering. Puts me in mind of my fave mind-bending time-travel series, the short-lived Life On Mars (the American version). Each episode gave me an acute case of "brain pain" from trying to keep track of the shifts between past and present. Not a headache, but like the muscle cramps after over-exercising without a proper cool-down. Even so, I couldn't *not* watch it each week! ;D

      Fascinating topic and well-written article. I think there are a lot of things we can't explain in this world. I think this could be true, but I have not had an experience like this.

      However, my grandparents lived in a home shortly after they arrived where they could not keep the basement door shut. They closed it before bed and locked it every night, but it was always open in the morning. They could hear a woman crying at night also. Even wedging a chair under the door knob did't work. They never saw anyone, but it they still moved away.

      Who really knows why these weird thing happen? I will share this interesting hub.

      Hi Nell

      That is a great post, and as usual you did a good job at reporting the story. I believe all their stories (whether they believe they actually went through some time slip or just had a strong and powerful imagination to feel like they did), I believe with all my heart. The imagination is a powerful tool.

      I (and just my opinion) sense it to be a message to those chosen that are able to deal with it, maybe like a prophecy from above. I believe the message is change, our world is going to crash as we know it and return to easier times.

      I have had a similar experience, not quite as intense but nevertheless it was a time travel.

      So I don't think it is just in Liverpool. To make or try to make my story short, I will give a quick version of what happened. I was driving from my moms heading back home, with thoughts of stopping for a cappachino. All of a sudden it became misty/foggy looking, and I felt like I was driving an old car and everyone else on the road as well.

      It really was a cool feeling, anyway I didn't think anything of it and kept going to coffee house, pulled in, and it seemed like the 30s, like all the young girls were seniors who were working in a factory, almost like a meat factory, when woman first started working.

      They all had white aprons on, approached me so friendly and spoke in a soft older voice. (Most girls there are young, friendly but not anything close to this friendly environment lol), I received my order, carried on and then it was clear again and I was back to present day.

      It was one of the most awesome experiences I ever felt. I love change and I know something big is around the corner, so it may be a sign of definite change.

      Thank you for posting.

      Many blessings

      Laurie

      so what would happen if someone slips back to 1967 and leaves their smart phone and wallet with cash and debit card with their name and address from 2015 with some one in a shop from 1967 and you tell them to come and see you in 2015?

      Totally fascinating article. As to whether or not I believe it? I voted not sure. The thing for me is always that there is so much in the world around us, and even in the cosmos that we think we understand, but I think do not completely understand. We debunk strange phenomena simply because we know what we know, or think we know what we know, and so we cannot fathom anything else beyond that. Kind of makes me want to make a trip to Bold Street in Liverpool though. I guess the best thing to hope for would be getting two trips rolled into one. :)

      My grandad swears he was caught in a time slip as a teenager. I can't remember the exact details (I will ask then post them here) but it was around the Water Street area (again this is only from memory! He looked down and found himself walking in cobbles in a place he didn't quite recognise as 'now'. So I've always known about them.

    • David Dalby profile image

      Yes it is in the Handbook of Radionics plus I forgot George Van Tassel was once told a Time Travel Formula which was F=1/T which shows that light should actually be called the ElectroMagneticTime Spectrum. And that means that TimeSlips are naturally occurring phenomenon created by an energy field. Hope that helps your readers.

      Hi David, Wow! now thats fascinating! I will have to go and read Keith Mason radionics, I never knew that! thanks so much for the added info, nell

    • David Dalby profile image

      David Dalby 4 years ago

      All Time slip experiences have certain common denominators which appear to be energetic in nature and form naturally in the environment if extremely rare, which is why you do not need a time machine in order to time travel. Once the energy field forms anyone can step literally into another time frame. It is well known in the field of Radionics that energy fields and consciousness can be used to photography the future (see Keith Mason book on radionics). If consciousness is involved that may explain why folks often travel to the past because they have no mental reference point for the future.

      A woman in Ohio recently took a photo by mistake of a timeslip which showed a chain link fence and behind it were 2 folk dressed in 1970's clothes. The chain link fence seemed to be acting as an electrode to stabilize the energy field that had formed. Also it is well known that water has an energy field coming from it as any dowser of water knows. This mysterious energy field from water isn't understood yet we know all about missing planes and ships in certain areas of the ocean. The ancient Greeks where fascinated by Time and thought we all had a destiny which was hard to change. Anyway, excellent Hub.

      Im always sceptical of a story like this when the person or persons involved are sceptics of what just happened to them. So a man who saw ghosts didnt previously believe in ghosts and so on. I just think the story teller uses the sceptic to prove that even he can believe in something paranormal like many people dont

      Hi steve, nice to hear from you again. Its funny how different people experience similar things when they say they have been through a time slip, seems like there is a pattern too it. I think with the 17 year old it is too vague to actually figure out exactly what she saw, but saying that its not something a 17 year old would think off I don't think, unless it happened, let me know if you come up with anything else its always great to get another view on it, and thanks!

      Oh and just as another note it would seem that the story of imogen relates back to the early 1980's. Apparantly there was a Mothercare store there at that time and of course the money wasn;t too different. Although if she was paying with credit card I dont suppose she would have even thought about the money being different. Anyway it would seem that the 17 year old went back to the early 80's. Question: A 17 year old in modern times working and earning enough to buy her sister baby clothes? Just a wandering about the age thing on this story, although I'm sure if asked that the mother would colaborate?

      Continuing my research Nell on time slips and time travel experieces I am coming across many stories of people who have experienced deafness during their experience and also a rushing feeling and also loss of time too, but Im coming across several stories relating to so called famous cases such as the fabled 1968 to 71 pegasus experiment that supposedly involved transporting american kids through time to complete missions of mercy for the government. Stories that dont add up and seem to have no real credible evidence to back them up other than fuzzy photos and 'stories'. However this strange fog seems to appear in many of the experiences related by normal every day people over many years. I am now left wandering if the hydron collider could have something to do with time slips as in opening worm holes in different decades all the way back to 1905. Cant quite get a handle but there's something to all this, setting aside the rubbishy stories made up by attention seekers, there are striking similarities such as the loss of time and that wierd grey/green fog.

      Extremely interesting and thought provoking! I love the idea of time travel, and alternate dimensions, but I am not sure what I believe. Maybe this is true, maybe there is something in the area that is causing hallucinations, there are a number of theories I'm sure we could come up with. Regardless, this is so fascinating. Fun read!
