Looks like I come from 2019

Greetings, guys,

my name is Roberta and I am presently writing from Italy, my home country, so I apologize in advance for my poor English. I have a feeling that I have "involuntarily" travelled from 2019 to the present day, without time machines or any other device, but it looks like I have just woken up from my... future life. Yes, I woke up in my bed, as usual, in the early morning, but I suddenly felt a sense of nostalgia and discomfort as I noticed that the papers, books and comics in my desk (I am an avid reader in my mother tongue) were left in an order which I didn't recognize as mine, because I'm a kind of a messy person and most of the times I'm not willing to be tidy and organized. I looked carefully to my room and I can say that it didn't change that much, as it is for the outsides, it's just that now I feel the average temperature for the summer in my country a little bit hotter than it is in 2019. The only proof (which I suppose it is valid just for me) that I came from the near future was held in my watch, a Casio GA-100-1C7ER, which kept signaling 25-01-2019 as the "official" date for that day before I woke up in 2014. I remember consulting it frequently in 2019; but unfortunately neither my watch nor my clothes or personal accessories (I used to wear thin eyeglasses) followed me in this apparent time travel. I woke up with just a blue cotton t-shirt, my underwear (it didn't change) and a pair of bermuda (slightly looser than my true size).
As you can see I'm pretty clueless about what brought me back in time, and most importantly how. I can say that in the "future" where I lived (now, in my perception, is unfortunately... The past), the feared "Third World War" has not begun and the world of technology is about to uncover important advances in regards to the Human Brain Project; there will be significant advances and there will be more and more evidence about consciousness, which will proven to be non-immortal. More and more people will get into mind-uploading, setting up the path for its realization (though it is common opinion that will not be realized until 2040).
As for now, I am trying to keep up with my ordinary life, but it's not that hard since the only thing it has been changed from my... "future" is technology, and in a slight way. Virtual reality will be pretty popular, and Sony and Nintendo will be the true winners of this competition. Oculus Rift is challenged by a modified version of a Nintendo 3DS device, which is simply called Nintendo VR, and can emulate VR games simply being brought to one person's eyes (it has some kind of binocular support).
Well... For now, that's all. Thank you for listening.

What a predicament you have found yourself in. My first questions for you are these:

How did you know to post in this forum?
Were you a member here prior to 2019?
Instead of expressing fright, bemusement, terror etc of your dilemma, you calmly offer us snippets of what life will be like in 2019. Why did you do this (offer us an insight into what life will be like, when nobody has asked you )?
You say you are interested in keeping up with your ordinary life. How are you doing this exactly? If you were employed in 2019, how on earth can you be employed in 2014? Surely you have a doppleganger here in 2014?

Comics? You time travel here and you feel it necessary to convince us that this actually happened by referencing the comics on your bed stand? Really? Comics?

Information about game consoles is not the thing I would prioritize if such an experience happened to me. If 5 years had been snipped out a lot of stuff would be in that 5 years both personal ( marriage, relationships, jobs, even children?) and world events (wars, natural disasters ).

Okay, so for a second let's say you time traveled in your sleep. No science there to explain. You basically have only the clothes on your back. You have no artifacts from the future. No computer or similar device lol. No money. You decide to post on an English forum even though its not your native language. All you have is your memory. So with that said, all you can prove are dates. You have already given us irrelevant information about the video game market. Any avid gammer would know VR is where its going. Now this Human Brain Project, you are a bit vague on, but I think I get your drift, you are saying that some kind of brain to computer system is implemented. Again some companies are already researching brain biometrics, computers reading your emotions. In Japan they have made cat ears that react to your emotions lol. But I doubt that by 2019 you will be able to upload your brain. If you really want to prove yourself you have to be more specific. Give us something to work with. A specific date name, event. So far no time travelers on this forum have done that successfully. I'm not trying to be mean or anything but I'm sure others feel the same way. I would love for you to be a real time traveler but sadly you do not have any proof. So please prove it.

Your first claim, and perhaps your most defensible, is that of being Italian. Your use of idioms which are specific to North America does not engender confidence in this. The best example is your use of the phrase "pretty clueless", which is something an Italian speaker would struggle with. In fact, this most strongly indicates that you are a North American woman, more likely to be from either coast, and most likely to be from a tropical region. Florida or California would be my best guess.

I am not fluent in Italian, but I know enough about both English and Italian to discern between a native speaker and someone who has learned in their lifetime. You do not make the mistakes which are common to Italian people when writing in English.

To convince me that you are EVEN ITALIAN, please respond to me IN Italian.

I'm italian too... so, a nice place to start for me is: where are you from exactly? I mean, in italian slang from my part of the country:
d'indo'ttussei?

A few things fit in "my" timeline. I hope you will contact me. We may have some interesting information to share.
Okay, let's hear it then. When is "your" timeline? What have you got to share on this forum? I really hope its something different from the same old-same-old this forum is accustomed to hearing.

No reason to get defensive. Relax :)
I am not claiming anything. I have not created a thread to announce anything. There is no point.
My message was addressed to Roberta. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

Just a few day ago there was an Italian person claiming to be some American time traveler. I wonder if they are related, as their writing style is very similar.

Not at all. If I would want to claim something I would have created a thread. I have not.
It is usless to write about a timeline that won't be anymore.


Sorry, I guess I am the one that got defensive there xD

It's an effect of watching too much anime. It was too awesome, that you adquired the "Chuunibyou" of the main character of Steins;Gate, Hououin Kyouma.

(He only wanna be cool)

I am mad scientist. It's so cool!

Haha If I was trying to create a story I would be more subtle than this... using the nick and picture from the anime that, according to you, I am using to... to... something... xD.

And I repeat, I didn't claim anything.

This happens all the time. The fake time travelers give up answering the difficult questions and never return.
Someone who is confident in their responses and who has a motive for posting here to begin with would stay and answer anything and everything. Whether you believe him or not, at least Titor provided months of conversation and supplied photos and documents. Nobody else has been able or willing to do that.
