A man asked me what year it is Mar. 18th, 2005 @ 08:43 AM Reply

I feel really weird right now...a guy in the street asked me what year it is. Is that normal?

I was walking out of the mosque today, going home. Before crossing the street, a hand tapped my shoulder. I looked behind me and saw a 20-something year old man with brown hair, a beard, and a mustache. He was wearing a black suit, and by the look in his eyes I thought he was going to do something evil.

He said (in arabic) : "Excuse me, but do you know what the date is?" I said: "Yeah sure, it's March 18th." He said: "Thank you...and the year?" I laughed..."What?" Then, very calmly, he said: "The year please, tell me." That was when I felt weird...I then told him it was 2005 and hurried off...that was somewhat scary.

No...homeless people dress like shit. He was wearing a SUIT. A clean suit, with a purple-black tie.

No-one looks at the arabic calender. At school they teach us to write it down, bu we don't really care. And it's 1423, I think...

Well maybe that guy bumped his head or something and couldn't remember the date. It is pretty weird though, never happened to me before.

hmmmm i often forget the year
its just one of those things i don't think about
the other day i was filling out a form and i nearly put '03, i quickly remembered what year it was.
but to forget all together, that is odd. perhaps he had just come through a wormhole or something. he might be from another world

Clearly, this is a case of time traveling.

Or a really funny prank.

I fail to see how that is scary. I have forgotten the year before. I have reffered to it being 2002 when it was 2004, etc.

Some people are just very forgetfull.

Hmm, asking what year it is is very strange, but asking what date it is, well, people can forget the exact date. I think it might have been a homeless man, but since I wasn't there, I won't know.

I don't know about you, but in Egypt, homeless people don't dress nice. They can't afford expensive suits. They also don't look, smell, or talk nice. The man I described was clearly a civilian, not a hobo.

Maybe he was actually chinese and was expecting something like "Year of the dragon".

I've had days that were so fucked up that I would be like "omgwtfbbq" and wouldn't know what the year was.

It's normal.
