Faraday and... Obama ???
« on: May 12, 2009, 08:28:16 PM »
I watched the episode for the second time today, and I noticed something very strange.
When Eloise looks through Faraday's journal, you can get a glimpse of two pages of it, and on the left page you can clearly see "OBAMA" written with red ink. Over "Obama" you can see the word "TIME", and below "Obama" it seems to read "FUTURE", but I'm not sure about that one.
Wow! That's a shock!
We could dismiss it as an easter egg, but since they are in 2004 when Faraday last sees the mainland, Bush is still president and Obama is not even in the picture (Since Kerry was his contender back then). So does that mean that Faraday knew the future? Or is it just an unintended mistake?



I'm sorry if this has been discussed already.

P.S. Whatever happened to Sledgeweb's famous sceencaps? My screencap is pretty bad, but it will have to do.

Oh, and on the right page, it says "Check out these theories! Might be on to something".
