A woman appears to be talking on a cell phone in this black and white footage from the 1920s

If you look at video she's definitely talking on something, to somebody?
Others claim it was a type of hearing aid... but why was she talking into it?

Dr Brown: 1928?... 19... 28? That's it! I remember now, thats when I lost my phone!

in Chris Elliots book "Shroud of the Thwacker" cell phones from that era were made of wood and ran on kerosene  Thumbup

the internet existed too, it was just one site of a donkey kicking a guy in the face over and over again or something

If it were a time traveler or anything weird, it would have caught Chaplin's eye (or whoever made the movie). Kind of silly, but silly sells nowadays.

Have they even verified this is a real clip?  I mean, it could be someone digital added the women into the movie or even filmed the entire clip and then "aged" it to look like it was shot in the 1920s. 

Personally, I'd want to eliminate all the more basic possibilities before we grasp at the more exotic ones. 

I've always contended that time travel will never be possible, because if at any point in the future it became possible then we'd probably inundated from do-gooder assmonkeys trying to "fix" the future by traveling back and warning us about everything under the sun, only to have OTHER do-gooders show up and tells us the things we did to "fix" the first set of problems caused an even worse future.
