I think this "curse" is spreading to us cousins.  Let me tell you a story that happened a week ago.

To make sure I don't lose  or misplace them, I always place my house keys in my right, front pocket.  Always.  Always.  Always.  I don't deviate.  The only time they are removed is on Sunday when I do laundry.  They go into a kitchen drawer on a hook until they go into another pair of pants.  This hasn't changed in decades.  When I unlock my door, before I even open it, I put the keys back in my right, front pocket. 

So, a week ago, I'm subbing and my keys are in my right front pocket all day long.  I get home and reach in for them and they're gone.  I turn out all the pockets I have, on my jeans and my coat.  Regarding the latter, I pull out my mittens and sunglasses and turn the lining inside out.  I check everything, including my lunch bag.  The keys are gone.  I got to my neighbors to use their cellphone (I don't have one - call me untrendy) and call a friend who has an extra set.  He shows up, drops them off and takes off.  The key doesn't work.  I call him again from my neighbors' cellphone and get his voicemail.  While I wait, my hands get cold.  I reach into my pockets for my mittens and there, on top of one are my keys.  I had pulled the mittens out earlier, as I said, and nothing else was in that pocket.  When I go back into my house I check my voicemails on my landline; no messages,  But when I check caller ID, during the time I was locked out of my house........I had called myself two times.

Explanations, anyone?

Gerard, it's not unheard of for scammers to clone your own phone number to your caller id. It's happened to me a couple of times over the years. So, as long as you didn't leave yourself a message, I think things should be okay.

Several friends have told me about that scam, Uncle Roger, and told me not to pick up if I see me calling myself.  But that never happened before, only while I was locked out of my house while my keys vanished and then reappeared.  Like MB said, cue the Twilight Zone music.

The Doctor and K9, welcome to the Flashed-back Club. I see where your 07:39:01pm ET post in the "Marilyn Ross Books on CD. Here Today, Gone Tomorrow" topic is listed as having been made at 12:39:01pm ET.

Quick question, MB.  When do you update the OS as-aired-on-this-date-'66-'71 slideshow?  Where I live, it was always at 6:00 p.m. CST.  Now it seems to update at various times.  Is this a result of the curse, or do you update it now at a different time?

It's always at the same time. But if when someone visits the forum they're experiencing flashed-back time, the captures they see are all wrong because the captures are still from the previous day's eps - and the captures probably don't match up with the captions because those have probably changed at the right real time. The whole situation can be a pain in the you know where.

What, MB, can we make to break this curse/  Can we pass on the shadow creature?  What?  The updating of the daily episodes does not appear at its normal time.  Those who control the internet are obviously evil.  We must deal with them.  Anyone knows who anyone who can do a painting?

What I still find crazy is that time can be normal on my computer but not on my phone or vice versa. As you can see from the timestamp on this post, I'm currently flashed-back on my computer, so when I go to Robservations I'm still seeing Willie and Sam from April 12th's Ep #207...

Maybe I shouldn't say anything about this because maybe I'll jinx it, but I haven't found myself flashed-back for several days. Has anyone noticed that they have been? If not, perhaps the weird flashed-back phenomenon has passed (we should only be so lucky)...

I haven't seen anything flashed-back in about a month. But apparently it was too good to be true that the phenomenon had disappeared as quickly as it had appeared because I see that I'm currently flashed-back.  [ghost_angry]
