Time travel/forum message editing

Recommended Posts

I posted a message to the forum then went back some time later to edit a glaring typo. The edit time stamp shows I went back 1 hour 39 minutes into the past, prior to posting the original message. If I give you a time and date can you take me back to that fun time I had with Bridget last year?

Here's the deal:

See... Looks fine from my end. I haven't changed my time zone, so it displays "geocaching time" (aka PST) on my screen.

 

You must have it set to non-geocaching time (aka EST) so the time stamp on the top, when you view the message, is three hours ahead, 10:52pm. But the time stamp for the edit remains in geocaching time, 9:13pm.

 

On my screen, with both times in geocaching time, there has been no time travel.

 

I would explain the reason for all this, but with the intracacies of Einsteins speciel theory of relativity, it's too complex. Just keep in mind that time is relative to the position of the observer.

Due to distance and the amount of time needed for light to travel, everything that we see beyond our solar system may not exist at this moment.
