Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Regarding Board Question #92726, how the heck did Mr./Mrs. Time Rewind know what question number they would be assigned before asking the question? I tried to figure out my question number, and my best guess is #92738, but that is probably wrong.

Not only that, but how did they know that Inklings would answer their question and that it would get exactly 12 votes (as of 11/1/2019 at 12:42 PM)?

Either this is an inside job, or time travel is real. I really hope it is the latter.

Dear Pete, 

*Eyes narrow in suspicion* 

I know who you are. 

As for the votes on the answer, that one's a self-fulfilling prophecy... even if it is weird. 

Knowing the question number? That one is harder for me to figure out.... but from our investigation, it seems that it's possible to see the number of the question after you ask it, so asking another question right before would enable you to easily guess what the number of your next question is, if asked immediately after.

 

Sorry to be a killjoy. 

Cheers,

Dear Policeman Pete,

Not this time!
