Evidence of time travel?

An Irish filmmaker thinks he has found evidence of time travel in a Charlie Chaplin movie.

George Clarke says a video from a bonus feature of the DVD to Chaplin's 1928 film "The Circus" shows a woman talking into something she's holding up to her ear.

It appears to be a mobile phone, although they weren't invented until the 1970s.

It's likely the actor is holding a hearing aid, but we won't be the judge.

Watch the video and judge for yourself!  Leave a comment below.  (All comments are subject to approval)

The View and Bill O'Reilly

After guest Bill O'Reilly declared "Muslims killed us on 9/11," Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, co-hosts of the ABC daytime talk show, stormed off the set.

It happened as O'Reilly was discussing President Obama's stance on Park51, the Muslim community center that is slated to be built two blocks from ground zero in Manhattan.
