Jules Verne

The famous author, Jules Verne, died on this day in 1905. But what many people have never known is that he was the worlds first Time Traveler.
Jules was actually born in Paris in 1976, and his teenage years were spent reading books about submarines, space travel and hot air balloons. He wrote several books on these subjects but they were rejected by publishers because they were too outdated.
He became bitter and twisted due to the rejections and moved to England where he became friends with Herbert George Wells (a mad inventor). Together they began experimenting with an old armchair and a satellite dish hoping to build the worlds first radio controlled mobility scooter. The pair accidentally used AA batteries instead of AAA batteries and were instantly transported back in time where the became world famous authors.
The rest is history.
