    Imagine opening your mailbox and finding a letter from a kid in a spacesuit on a space station in the future. Would you write back? The postage would probably be horrendous.

    After a power failure is returned to normal my wife resets the water softener clock, but it always ends up being set to recharge at 2PM instead 2AM. She almost has a heart attack when she walks into the garage and there’s water gushing into the deep sink. AD BC AM PM let’s call the whole thing off.

    Every star is space is telling you about its past. We are learning to decode those messages.

    Will someone from the very recent past write and ask him for a list of winning lottery numbers, with the dates they were drawn?

    But wouldn’t the kid on the other end need a time mailbox with your date on it to send back a reply?

    Once in high school, I was in a play called ‘Postcards’, in which a couple spent years writing postcards to various famous people (alive or dead). One day, they actually got a reply (unsigned), and the guy didn’t know what to do next; he felt he no longer had a purpose. The play ended with the lady who had secretly been in love with him all this time, encouraging him to write again, which he eventually did. Very strange play.

    One could have used this to see how Lost was going to end and then save themselves from the aggravation…

    All mail is from the past. Getting a mail piece from the future will be interesting to say the least.

    I still get caught off-guard when I see 2000 referred as the turn of the century

    Y2K was an actual threat to computerized society, but we recognized it in time and solved it. Why can’t we do the same with climate change, which is an even greater threat?

    Disappointed Dr Mel didn’t calibrate his machine to BCE.

    They live in a space station. Who has a MAILBOX in a space station?

    I’m pleased you prefer to use the A.D. and B.C. notation instead of the current fad of historians / archaeologists.

    Was the turn of the century (millennium?) 2000 or 2001? There was no year 0.

    I have to admit it would be interesting, in fact BC would be the more interesting. Most interesting of all would be to write to the far future or any alien civilization and ask for their equivalent of an encyclopedia. Just general knowledge of their time.

    Every mailbox is a time mailbox.

    Drop a letter in it and you don’t know when it will be delivered.

    If you mail something to the past, does that mean the post office should pay the postage?

    For the last time, I would hope, the century did not “turn” until 2001. There was no year Zero. The first year of the Common Era (A.D. for Christians) was year 1. Add a hundred years, you get year 101. Add two thousand years, you get the year 2001.

    Now, if programmers had designed the calendar, yes, there probably would have been a year zero.
