When times are tough, we've all fantasized about traveling back to a simpler era in history, just like Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future. After all, he sure made that DeLorean look cool.
Well thanks to a new video posted by BuzzFeed, it seems as if time travel may actually be real. For instance, Jack Black may have actually existed in a former life as none other than Paul Revere. And who knew Shia LaBeouf was really just a modern version of Albert Einstein? Sound impossible? Check out the video below.
Brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg are bringing a taste of their Wahlburgers fast food restaurant to the TV after signing a new reality TV deal with bosses at U.S. cable network A&E.

The siblings' brother Paul has run the place since it opened in 2011 and now a second location is set to open in Toronto, Canada early next year (14).
When the new show debuts in 2014, viewers will get a chance to keep up with Wahlberg family affairs and restaurant business.
Donnie Wahlberg confirmed the TV series news during an appearance on Arsenio Hall's U.S. talk show on Monday (11Nov13), revealing he and his brothers and their mum Alma would all be part of the drama.
The New Kids on the Block star said, "It's going to be a lot of fun."

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is selling exclusive signed prints of herself in a bid to raise funds for the victims of the deadly typhoon which battered the Philippines on Friday (08Nov13). An estimated 10,000 people were left dead by Typhoon Haiyan as it tore through the island nation, leaving thousands more seeking shelter as homes and schools were swept away.
The British beauty is offering her support by selling a limited-edition print for $30 (£20) each, taken by half-Filipino photographer John-Paul Pietrus, to raise cash for Red Cross charity's disaster fund.
Pietrus tells Vogue magazine, "I was on the Red Cross website and thought that there must be something more that I can do than a personal donation, not only to raise money but to raise awareness.
"I immediately called Naomi to see what can be done and I suggested selling one of the images we've taken for charity. Naomi has always been passionate about helping those in crisis and I am grateful for her getting behind this initiative and coming up with a way of helping those effected by the typhoon."

Detention report cards from John Lennon's troubled school years are set to go under the hammer later this month (Nov13). The late Beatles legend attended the Quarry Bank High School for Boys in his native Liverpool, England in the 1950s, but documents show he struggled with academia.
Lennon was held back by teachers after school hours for continual disruptive behaviour, with detentions being doled out for "fighting in class" and "sabotage".
He was even handed three detentions in one day, with other reasons for the punishment ranging from being a "class clown" to having "just no interest (in school work) whatsoever".
The two sheets, which date back to 1955 and were saved from a mass book burning at the school in the 1970s, will go up for sale on TrackAuction.com from 22 November (13).
Lennon's bad reputation at school obviously didn't hold him back - he met songwriting partner Sir Paul McCartney in 1957 and they went on to create some of the most iconic tracks of the 20th Century.
