Recently I was goofing off and decided to e-mail Professor Stephen Hawking about a question concerning black holes. Of course, he did not reply himself. I only received his office with the message of "we will answer your question as soon as we can". The interesting part of the experience is that I sent the message at 1:14 am on a particular day and received the reply on the same morning. Not only was I shocked at receiving the reply, but noticed that it was sent at 1:04 am, yes, 10 minutes BEFORE I SENT THE MESSAGE TO HIM. Did I just go back in time? Accouting for time differentials I assume it would be in hours instead of minutes or hours plus minutes, not exactly 10 minutes. If anyone has an explaination please put it in terms easy to understand.
