Step 4: Success

Being that you've managed to zoom into the future, or that you've managed to reach it naturally, and jetted back into time to leave your imprint.  I would deem that a success.  Currently, I cannot provide any useful information on the process, experience or even hints at what this may mean...but, being my current self, the one set in the past-present (in terms of the linear measure of my receipt of this future text message), I can just tell you that my future self may have done something cute.

For all I know, it may not even be me that is sent this future text.  Maybe it was someone wishing me a happy anniversary?  In about 9 years, I'll be able to come back to this post and comment on it.  Perhaps I'll even be able to attach some new photos as time develops.

UPDATE:  Holy crap.  I was just a kid when I saw this movie, and I went to YouTube to find a cool ending for my post...and look what I found.  My answer.  WOWWWWWWWWWWW.   Thiiiss is why my text message is blank.  Ah, this is poetry.  Instructables, thank you for being part of my past, present and future.  Without you, these current dots wouldn't have been connected.  I am happy.  :D

PS...oddly enough, this is the only clip of this scene and it's only on YouTube because a kid, which I actually know (my mom's friend's kid), pointed to his junk.  Soooooo odd.

This happened to my email today! i got an email that said (No Title)(No Sender) There is no message and the date sent was 01/01/70! And even freakier, it didnt show included in the number of unread messages. It wouldnt open when i clicked on it and when i came back from telling my family about it, it was gone!
<p>Unfortunately if you have 01/01/70 it is likely referring to 01/01/1970. This happens when the date is blank. Dates in computers are stored as the number of seconds since Jan 1st, 1970. So, if the date isn't provided or is messed up or is 0, you get that instead.</p>
Crazy thing. This happened to my cousin several times and she is totally freaking out about it. She received a text message from the future a few months back, weirded her out but she chalked it up to crappy cell service problem. Today she told me that a few weeks ago her watch was set ahead to the future. She said noone had touched it and it is the kind you have to wind and mechanically set, so if it had stopped it would display a past date, not the future. Now today at work she was going through emails and deleting junk. She had to go back and take a look for something in her trash file and there; where the trash is usually sorted by today, this week, last week, etc. ; at the top of the trash &quot;list&quot; is NEXT WEEK- above trash from today. The emails were dated Nov. 10, 2014.<br>She is freaked out, however I see everything as a sign and told her to play the lottery on thathat day!<br>
<p>The same thing happened to me multiple times, with multiple dates, times, and phone numbers. I was always freaked out when it occurred. It was on my black Razr phone. Today, I thought about how I feared the year 2019 and decided to research the mysterious texts and this came up. Makes me a bit less scared. Hopefully just a tech glitch. </p>
uhhhhhhhhhhh... interesting, the look on his face is while he does it is pretty creepy too. I wonder if it's a signal meant for someone in the staff behind the camera....
My brother did that in family photo once, said after he had to use the bathroom.
Hey ther cool instructable. And by they way &quot;crushing of any butterflies&quot; comes from the story of A Sound of Thunder by Ray Bradbury. One of my favorite book.
In the future, I will try to text myself to today (2011). But well as I will receive this message today and I will already have seen it's possible, I guess I wont do it.<br>Oh damn paradox.
now we wonder was the kid told to act weird? and the frowning dog seems to have attitude as well! don't forget to set your calender to remember your anniversary as well as this important event :)
