Wow! I went to microwave my food! I put in the time I wanting it to cook, one minute and thirty seconds. So I pushed [time cook], then [1], [3], [0]. I then pushed [start]. After it started, I came back here to check if there had been any new posts to the LTPF. Seeing none, I went back to get my food. Strangely, after more than a minute, the microwave still read 1:29. What's going on here?

Hm. Is this a true story, by any chance?
Did you actally punch in 1 min, 30 seconds? Was the timer going when you returned? Had it stopped while you were gone?

It is?
Is anyone else involved? Had the microwave opened? Had the timer ever started? Did it stop before you left the kitchen?

The timer started and finished while you were checking posts, and the microwave showed the time, which happened to be 1:29 PM? (or AM)
