He could be doing anything that involves a small thing and two hands.

Not sure I want to know about that Andy…..though if it's that small perhaps one hand would be ample?

"Bewildered twitter users": is there another kind?

He's probably rewinding his watch. Remember having to wind a watch every day?

Dexter Ward17 Oct 2018 1:56 a.m. PST

I agree he looks like he is winding or setting his watch

Why is this not in Utter Drivel?

He could be looking at a sea shell he picked up, or maybe even his dirty fingernails.

foxweasel17 Oct 2018 3:21 a.m. PST

A mobile!! Don't be ridiculous. He's probably checking his GPS.

Winding a watch, looking at a shell, or maybe playing one of those hand toy baseball games that were popular then.

Martin Rapier17 Oct 2018 6:50 a.m. PST

No, he's looking at those dirty postcards featuring donkeys he bought in Naples.

I'd go with that too Martin before the time traveler assumption … evil grin

On the advent of Internet someone said people would be more informed than ever and would be much harder to manipulate.

The creator of twitter must be laughing very hard at the first one.

What did he do with the donkeys afterwards? evil grin

You really shouldn't ask, Bill.

Presumably he bogged back off to his own timeline when he realised you still couldn't get a decent signal no matter what year it was.

Honestly, no one ever looked down at something in their hand before the mobile was invented? I know no one has looked up since, but still…

I know they're supposed to be safe, but increasing numbers of the cell phone and twitter crowd are showing signs of brain damage.

Safe ? Pretty well documented that RF/EMF emitters
can cause cancer.

MANY factors influence the probability, though, mostly
towards reduction.
