    I just noticed from a top right corner of posts that a question was asked today at 12.22 AM and I replied at 11.45 AM. :surprised Did I travel to the future? Or am I just prescient? Has relativity been disproved? I should think about this some more but just in case the universe ends 15 minutes from now I thought I should get this in first.

    No, but you could be in the Matrix.

    Ah, time doesn't exist anyway.

    Read Wheeler-Dewitt equation.

    Don't worry, you're just traveling on a closed timelike curve.

    Do we have flying cars yet? They are two years overdue already...

    :cry:

    At least I still/will have my kayak.

    P.S. check your time zone under user control panel. [ed]my pf->edit options->date and time[/ed]

    I do sometimes get a déjà vu feeling.

    Aha but that would not happen on a closed curve, the déjà would not be vu, not vu as déjà. It would have to be the horseshoe map always going close to the same points or something.

    Where can you get forms to apply for a Nobel Prize?

    A 24h-time would solve that. Or at least a logical way to write down times from 0:00 to 1:00 and from 12:00 to 13:00.

    11:30 pm -> 12:30 am -> 1:30 am. Completely logical!
