They're times I feel that way. Sometimes it's fast; sometimes slow.

By reading my posts, you are entering a world where logic breaks down. Everything you thought you knew about the world suddenly becomes contradictory. Time is irrelevant. Adorable kittens are king.

You are now entering.

The Internet.

Glad you saw that. I thought poster beneath you was asking you if you were asking a question.

I remember back in the day when I thought threads like his are cute...still sort of think that!

It is, isn't it? My mistake was asking about oil. tsk

And yet...all of those OMG-not-another-oil-thread-GTFO "fanatics" still don't know DMAX's car can use LL-98 as well as LL-01.

Some do, but chose to deny it! Ironically, though, the LL-98 I'm using (Fuchs 5/40, coz I like the name) seems to have disappeared more than I'm used to. It's down 1/2 qt. after about 6,000 miles.

Just saw an Agip 5/40 LL-01 at my shop...think that'll be next!

Anyway, back to OP, I thought clock was just always off an hour for six months...always seemed stupid to me but whatever! I don't think Germany has DST.

And now you're even older.

Also, if you lived your entire life in a plane circling earth, you'd like like a billionth of a second longer. How they know this stuff, I haven't a clue, but think it's very cool nonetheless.

OP...don't worry...I'll protect you...won't be that bad! It's safe. Come back.

Mine is the other way around - it is correct for the six months!

And, since you grow older slower when travelling closer to a speed of light, 323 driver grows old faster than 330 driver. 335 driver grows older even slower, but he becomes bald faster, 'cause of HPFP...

Since I'm bored I'll comment on this. It's part of general relativity. A group of scientists once took two sychronized atomic clocks and flew one of them around the earth on a 747. The other stayed on the ground. When the plane returned, the one on the plane was behind by several billionths of a second (or some really small unit). That was greater than the clock's maximum error so time slowed for the 747. The faster you go, the slower time passes. At the speed of light, time ceases to pass. So you can travel to the future, but you can't go to the past. Also this means that photons don't age after they leave their source, so the light hitting us from lightyears away from other stars is 0 seconds old, but took forever to get here... maybe SeanC can step in and clean up this mess I have made.
