Hide your sandwiches! Time travel confirmed!

http://news.yahoo.com/is-this-ancien...083225287.html

(photo at linked site)

A statue showing a young girl holding up what appears to be a laptop - complete with USB ports - has sparked a frenzy among conspiracy theorists.

The statue, ‘Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant’ is in The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California.

‘I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer,’ said YouTuber StillSpeakingOut.

‘But when I look at the sculpture I can’t help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects.’

In the gallery’s description, the object is described as a ‘shallow chest’ - but conspiracy theorists are having none of that.
So which one of you left your laptop behind in ancient Greece? And how much porn did you expose those people to?

Since it's Greece, I guess it was gay porn.

And how are they getting a cell signal? I think the general consensus regarding that film clip is that the woman was using an early hearing aid device, which did exist in that era.

No self-respecting time-traveler uses a laptop instead of a tablet.

Re: Hide your sandwiches! Time travel confirmed!

If time travel is possible then why give ancient Greece something we know and almost phasing out today? Why not give them something so advanced that we haven't even seen today or know how it works? Like Sex-bots.

It's a jack for the coconut-shell headphones.

Looks like a Sex Port to me.




Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.
