    Socialized time and pinko software nailed it to the fraction of a second.

    It doesn’t tell us when Hammer Time or Peanut Butter Jelly Time or Owl Stretching Time or Howdy Doody Time or Planck time are .

    (I am aware that Planck time is a unit .)

    But doesn’t time itself need a bit of space, some elbow room, in order to make time????

    Oh,and was there time before the Big Bang?

    Phil Plait couldn’t answer that last question either. None of us can. Yet. Anyone who says they can, is trying to sell something.
