Timezone is not a reference frame, it's a social/legal construct because people like it to be "noon" when the sun is straight up in the sky (except the weirdos in the Arctic/Antarctic). Now if your code is operating at a substantial fraction of the speed of light relative to the rest of us …

It also occasionally replies with 'Comment of the year', 'Are you for real', and 'I'm taking a screenshot so I can remember this moment forever'.

These are all sans-serif compounds. Serif compounds are dramatically different and usually much more reactive.

OMG! Yes the world has not gone crazy, but it did leave me in a "whaaaaat?!" state for a bit. But it is, in fact, typographically correct analysis.
