A couple weeks ago I heard my phone make the sound it makes when I plug it in. In the middle of night, I heard my phone plug back in.
In the morning I checked my phone to see what time it was because I thought I was running late. The microwave read 6:28, my phone, the cable box and the alarm clock in the bedroom said it was 6:08.
The three that I just mentioned all automatically tell time when you plug them in. The microwave has to be programmed manually so when the power goes out you have to set the time again but the others ones, you don't.
How did it happen?
Is there such thing as "past time energy"?
All four units were connected to a different power source, the phone and microwave were on the same breaker for the kitchen.
Actually, It has more to do with the gravitaional field fluctuations being noted, primarily, last I heard, in the south Atlantic, but areas of field anomalies have been noted elsewhere. Some say it has to do with the Mayan Alignment coming up in 2 years.
Your devices run between a certain voltage. Ex. 90-120 V. You probably had a small disruption in that voltage, which was enough to keep the devices on, but not maintain their accuracy. If you have a volt meter you can check the outlets.
An example of that is if you have ever been to Europe and plugged your devices into the outlet without a converter.
The microwave restarted at the standard 12:00 setting. The power was interrupted for 20 minutes. At 11:40 the power was resumed with the microwave clock starting over at 12:00. A twenty minutes difference!
She said the power resumed in the middle of the night, didn't she? I didn't think she would consider 11:40 the middle of the night. The time on the alarm clock, the cable box, and the phone were all correct. The microwave time was the one that was wrong.
Were you cooking something in the microwave that took 6 minutes, 28 seconds earlier? Or did you interrupt something earlier that had this amount of time left to cook in the microwave? Maybe the "time" on the micro wasn't the actual time of day, but the cooking time.
I resent the accusation that I cheated Sandra! I didn't have to go anywhere to solve this simple problem. I was well aware some appliances revert back to 12:00 when the power is interrupted.
Being aware of this, the rest is merely simple math. One of my favorite pastimes is doing expert logic problems. Just because it took YOU a long time to figure it out doesn't mean the problem was difficult at all! Sheesh!
Being accused of cheating on such a simple problem is insulting to me and is tantamount to calling me a liar! Sorry, but as far as I know, I've never been on your Facebook page!
RD, that reminds me - I'm so glad you introduced me to logic problems years ago. I bought a new logics problems book when we were in Gatlinburg. The Joneses couldn't understand why you and I find working such problems so much fun!
RD, you have to remember that not everyone thinks analytically or numerically. They might be very smart in other areas, however. I know you've always enjoyed problem solving, as do I, but not everyone is a nerd like us! lol
Perhaps I am taking this too personal, but I am not accustomed to being labeled a cheater. Just because it took Sandra 3 weeks to solve a problem I answered in less than a minute is no reason for her to resort to unfounded accusations.
I suppose anyone who answered this question correctly would have been likewise accused!
If you had not further said I went to your FB page to get the answer, I would have let it slide, Sandra. Perhaps I did overact but there was no indication you were kidding about this. No lols, no smiley faces, nothing to indicate you were anything but serious.
I accept your apology, but I think I will avoid these types of questions from now on.
