When did time start?

@uniq "on Sunday the 21st of October, 4004 B.C., at exactly 9:00 A.M." 卤~15 Minutes
If you go by Terry Pratchett's and Neil Gaiman's book "Good Omens"

@uniq What if everyone who thinks they were born before 1970 was simply brainwashed into thinking so?

@uniq N/A. Time is a social construct. It doesn't really exist.

@uniq Interestingly, 32b UNIX time is signed, so the earliest time in the Unix epoch is Friday 1901-12-13. 64b representation gets you to waaay before the big bang.

I feel old when I realise that my birth-datetime only needs 7 decimal digits, to the nearest second ('now' needs 10).
