Die Glocke

When I was kid, we used to play this stupid game, in which we’d all sit in a row with a mirror behind us, and the person in front would take a flashlight and shine it over everyone’s heads into the mirror. The concept was that if the photons bounced off the mirror in just the right way, we’d achieve time travel. Obviously, we only ever traveled through time the natural way, but it kept us busy for a few minutes.

So, what would you do if you had the ability to travel through time? Would you hunt dinosaurs in the Cretaceous? Would you go back and see some historic event? Would you try to confirm the existence of religious figures like Jesus or Buddha? Would you interfere with the past? Would you try to change the future?

Some believe Germany was trying to develop a time machine during WWII, an acorn or bell shaped device referred to as Die Glocke or The Bell, which they would have used to surprise their enemies and win the war.

Well, actually, it seems to be unclear as to what The Bell would do, some say it might levitate, or travel through time-space using extremely high amounts of power, or it might possibly even create free power. It contained a variant of mercury that was red, or maybe violet, in color.

Nobody even seems to know of the project’s existence until 2000, when Igor Witkowski wrote an article about Nazi miracle weapons, claiming he was allowed to transcribe project documents in 1997.

Perhaps we’ll never know the truth without a time machine of our own. 

And now, because I don’t want your brains to atrophy, here’s a puzzle!
2 clear, 1 blue, 2 clear.
5 blue.
1 blue, 3 black, 1 blue.
5 blue.
1 blue, 1 white, 1 blue, 1 white, 1 blue.
5 blue.
1 blue, 1 white, 1 blue, 1 dark blue, 1 blue.
5 blue.
1 blue, 1 dark blue, 1 blue, 1 dark blue, 1 blue.
5 blue.
