Nice gag, but if an event lies within the past light cone of any other event, all observers who can see it at all will agree on which lies in the past of the other.

Only if two events are separated by a space-like interval will there be disagreement on their temporal ordering.

Channeling my inner "valley girl": well, duh!

I read something recently which confused me (not a high bar).

Something about reconciling time and space by going all quantum. E=mc2 /might/ be a simplification...?

The maths are beyond me. But the reasoning seemed sane.

Any comments (knowing this is in the Dumb Jokes Thread)?
