Brother Geraghty, in this morning’s Jolt newsletter (you should subscribe), comments on the story about a time traveller talking on a cell phone in a 1923 Charlie Chaplin movie. His take:
To paraphrase Brian Faughnan, if she’s a time traveler, she had better be calling someone to help her kill Hitler.
Actually, she should try to kill Stalin and Beria first — in 1923, she’s got plenty of time to get to Hitler.
Of course, if you mess around with Hitler and time travel, you never know what could happen.
