It's mid-afternoon on Christmas eve. Indeed, I am still at work.

So why do I have a hat which claims I posted/voted on Christmas day?!

  • $\begingroup$ Because Doc Brown put the servers in the DeLorean and set the time two days into the past! $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Dec 24 '13 at 14:40
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila I think you have been having too much DeLorean yourself - two days would be yesterday... $\endgroup$ – user1729 Dec 24 '13 at 14:41
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, I was always under the impression that Christmas is the 25th. See, we never really celebrate Christmas in Israel... So make it two days back, and then one day a head. I mean you want the server to go Back to the Future, don't you? ;-) $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Dec 24 '13 at 14:57

  • $\begingroup$ @Asaf I'm confused. Today is the 24th. Tomorrow is the 25th, which is Christmas Day. I thought you meant Doc Brown put the servers in his car tomorrow and set the time two days into the past, meaning today (so, yesterday). What did you actually mean? $\endgroup$ – user1729 Dec 24 '13 at 14:59

    $\begingroup$ I am severely sleep deprived, because I stayed up almost the entire night reading QC. I don't have to make sense! $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Dec 24 '13 at 15:01
  • $\begingroup$ Furthermore, sometimes some of my "Achievements" from today are listed under Yesterday ... I assumed because it was already yesterday somewhere. $\endgroup$ – GEdgar Dec 24 '13 at 16:40

  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila what is QC? $\endgroup$ – draks ... Dec 24 '13 at 22:39

  • $\begingroup$ @draks: You brought this on yourself, remember. See this comment. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Dec 25 '13 at 0:44
  • $\begingroup$ @Asaf I don't see me involved in the post you linked... $\endgroup$ – draks ... Dec 25 '13 at 9:06
  • $\begingroup$ @draks: What? I'm not as tired as when I made those comments, but I'm still tired enough so I won't be legally responsible for the content of anything I write! $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Dec 25 '13 at 10:01

Blame it on time zones. It's Christmas day in Japan.

  • $\begingroup$ It wasn't at the time some people got their hats. But I think it was in New Zealand and certainly in Karibati $\endgroup$ – Ross Millikan Dec 24 '13 at 17:23
