On August 30, 2006 in Sweden, Håkan Nordkvist came home to find water pooling on his kitchen floor.
Assuming it was a leak, he gathered some tools and, opening the kitchen sink cabinet, reached his arm in to feel for the piping.
But he reached farther than he’d expected.
“I had to crawl inside the cabinet, and as I did so, I discovered that it just continued. So I kept on crawling further and further into the cabinet. In the end of the tunnel I saw a light, and when I got there, I realized I was in the future.”
Nordkvist claimed that he traveled into the future, to the year 2042. There, he met his 72-year-old self, and they compared tattoos and shared personal information that only the true Håkan Nordkvist would know.
He also allegedly captured this footage of himself (himselves?) with his cellphone:
“…I dont´care if people thinks I am a liar. I know I’m not. I met myself in the future, and I was fine. That’s all I know.”
As is usually the case, sometimes it’s better to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the story itself. A man finds a wormhole under his kitchen sink and meets his future self, videotapes the encounter on his phone, and makes it back in time for dinner?
