Still can decide if he's legit. Stuff he predicted that came true: the Iraq War in 2003, Columbia space shuttle disaster of 2003, China putting a man in orbit in October 2003, Hawking revising his theory to incorporate the "many worlds" in 2004 and CERN announced the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2013.

Worth mentioning he mentioned a divergence of 2.5% between our world line and his own.

>>54371 I never formed a strong opinion about his legitimacy or not. But Gawd it is fun to think about, innit?

What do I think of John Titor (f)? Would smash. I'm curious what part David Icke plays in all this. It seems memes became reality when Super was first activated in early 2016 with the YouTube shooting occurring 23 days before the first collision.

It would be extremely cool if we COULD confirm a time traveler.

The problem is that a time paradox would occur just by them existing - y'know butterfly effect n' all that.

For me, John Titor looked his best in that picture where he was wearing Ong's hat.

John Titor is a NationStates reference and the memetic Titor is basically a reminder that our culture has none of the spine or defiance needed to be honest. The first time you use answer #2 on issue #711, you’ll force-draw issue #1019 next (unless you’ve recently activated another force-draw opportunity, in which case #1019 will queue). Issue #1019, option #2 involves giving patents to the government. This inexplicably puts the government into patent trolling mode, resulting in lost scientific progress as the government sues researchers for patent violations.

Titor himself is a reference to an anti-intellectual thrust in modern culture whereby all long-form explanations are presumed to be born of unassailable aggression vs. the healthier early internet expectation that long-form explanations present larger amounts of information with greater precision. Despite being identified by scientific credentials, Titor is characterized as a primitive ranter. I believe the idea is that listening to “primitive ranters” sends society “back in time”, eroding its scientific advancement.

Yet in what I think should have been a more predictable consequence than it was, the broad promulgation of this bias against long-form communications has resulted in the loss of nuance in discourse and a rise of unexamined, inalterable slave-hatreds. If seems to have been the short-winded people who project hostility against others in the face of their own incomprehension who were actually primitive.

It’s a great example of the basic stupidity of both NationStates and the kind of people who engage in “memetic” manipulation.

I enjoyed writing this, and I hope other people enjoy reading it.

Pardon, an error in my post; issue #1019 option #3 is the Titor issue.

Firstly, they weren't exactly predictions

He was merely recounting events he had experienced which we'd perceive as being from an alternate future timeline

Secondly, the more time that passes from him arriving on a line, the bigger the divergence from the line he came from can become, so while initially it may have been a small difference, at this point it may be a huge difference

>>54550

Paradoxes only happen with zero divergence lines (seems highly unlikely you'd ever get 0 divergence). But in such a case some kinda magic would happen which we can't explain

I'd say his the biggest thing against John Titor is his usage of the word "wed site" instead of "website", then again how much internet access does someone in the apocalypse have? There's also the Y2K bug and mad cow disease that also seem improbable and a bit rediculous, of course in his timeline they may have been a significantly bigger issue.
