International Pretend You're a Time-Traveler Day? You are so on!

Surfing the friendslist, I came upon this excellent short post by amberdulen. In the comments of which, I found the link to this NPR article which treats of this truly awesome proposition:

December 8th is Pretend You're a Time-Traveler Day!

Some of my favorite suggestions for how to play the Time-Traveler angle:

- Walk up to random people and say "WHAT YEAR IS THIS?" and when they tell you, get quiet and then say "Then there's still time!" and run off.

- Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell "NOOOOOOOOO"

- Stare at newspaper headlines and look astonished.

- Take some trinket with you (it can be anything really), hand it to some stranger, along with a phone number and say "In thirty years dial this number. You'll know what to do after that." Then slip away.


Now, this is evidently meant to be a sort of costume event. However, I think that for those of us who are, for whatever reason, unable or unwilling to spend the day dressed in silver jumpsuits/beat-up motocross armor/boating flannels, the day still presents an excellent opportunity to at least blog like a time-traveler ala BLITEOTW. If you guys can handle virtual zombies, surely you can handle virtual time-travel.

So waddia say? Spread the word?
