So one time, I was on a bus and this guy next to me was very bored and said “When the bell rings, the time will be 10:30 am…DING!”, “When the bell rings, the time will be 10:31 am…DING!”, in a robotic voice.

At first I was confused. I didn’t know what he was talking about. Then I stared at him and I could just feel a wave of nostalgia. A very distant memory almost forgotten came back. I’m 7 years old, bored at home with nothing to do pre-internet. I call a landline number that has a service that tells you the time and just listen in… that’s exactly what the telephone lady would say. OMG he’s imitating the landline time service lol

It felt very satisfying too. It’s like a eureka moment but for memory rather than thought.

Anything similar happen to you?

    I did. At one point, i was determined to find the name of this weird xbox era game where your MC learns magic and travels through time, becoming old and crusty along the way.

    I did at one point find it, and made a mental note to emulate it, but now its lost again… Maybe I’ll find it again, who knows.

        Hey hey, I found it again! The game was “Nightcaster: Defeat the Darkness”. Looking over the summary on wikipedia, I think why I always had trouble finding it was because the timetravel situation is more of a suspended animation sort of thing, rather than explicit time travel.
