  • $\begingroup$ Probably something more for the main meta. You can turn it off with the "time travel" link in the upper right that you highlighted in your first image. Seems to be SE's April Fools. I agree with you in that it's a particularly annoying and not at all entertaining instantiation of such a joke. $\endgroup$ – Bryan Krause Apr 1 '19 at 15:41

    $\begingroup$ @David I think it began for people everywhere when it was 2019-Apr-01 00:00:00 in the earliest possible timezone anywhere on Earth, to maximize our "shared experience" and so it probably ended somewhere around 2019-Apr-02 00:00:00 at the last possible time zone on Earth. At least they didn't bring the dastardly Windows paperclip back again. I found that one particularly traumatizing. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Apr 2 '19 at 23:31
