: 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.

It's been known to cause severe distortions in the space-time continum, particularly in Outlook Express' mail delivery algorhythyms.

Upgrade to Service Pack 5. Trust me, I've tested it.
