Bend Man Looking For Time Travel Companion

Anyone want to time travel back to 1988?

Posted By on Thu, Jun 23, 2011 at 9:49 PM

Looking to take a vacation over the upcoming holiday weekend, but don't have the cash? Well, there's one Bend man named Scott who has posted the following ad on looking for someone to join him on a journey back to 1988.

Naturally, being a time travel enthusiast myself, I called the number at the end of the writeup, which features a photo of both the time machine and the time traveler (holding a fish for some reason), only to realize that this joker had listed the number for KTVZ in his ad.

Sadly, this looks like a joke. And it reads a lot like this other fake time travel ad.  Nevertheless, I emailed "Scott" detailing my excellent potential as a time-travel companion, just in case.

Here's the full text of Scott's ad.

 I have a functioning time machine I know it sounds unbelievable, but "I assure you it works." I need a second person to operate it with me.

I'm looking for someone who is adventurous and reliable. Preferably a female that can do heavy lifting.

I am leaving on June 30th, 2011 in the morning and plan to return July 3rd, 2011. I am going to June 1988 to handle some business.

If you are serious about time travel and are reliable, then please contact me. You do not have to pay anything, but you will need to pack light. I will be conducting interviews in the next couple of days. The only qualifications needed are that you are reliable and that the circumferance of your head is no more than 64cm.

Please send me an email along with a picture of you on an adventure. Thanks, Scott
