Do you want to time travel? Let's go to China then!

As a kid, had you ever watched the movie 'Back to the Future'? Well, I had, which is why I am familiar with such a thing as a time travel machine (Delorean, if you remember), well, fictionally, of course. Yes, as they say, there's no way to turn back time no matter what you do. Wait, is that really true, if at all?

Judging from recent happenings, that may be wrong. As a matter of fact, the Chinese may have actually found a way to go back through time. Just recently, a tunnel situated at northern Guizhou area - at the Zunyi's Honghuagang District, to be more exact - was found to have some kind of strange phenomenon.

In total, the tunnel measures over 400 metres in length and when you get out at the other end, you'll see that your mobile phone clock has been set backwards by an hour. No, this is neither a lie nor a prank. To confirm this, a news reporter even decided to try out the tunnel himself. The result was that in eight out of 10 times, the reporter's cell phone clock was set aback by a whole hour.

Now, don't worry too much. Should you decide to try and pass the 'time tunnel' - as the locals have been calling it for some time now, the clock on your mobile phone will show the normal time again if you have reached at least a kilometre away from that particular car tunnel. Unfortunately, for the time being, there has yet to be a definite explanation why such a phenomenon can take place, leaving most of us clueless of what actually lies underneath the tunnel or, perhaps, around it.

Well, I'm wondering, if it has the ability to screw up the mobile phone clock, I think there's no guarantee it can't screw up the car's computer, too, especially if it's an electric car which, as its name implies, relies heavily on electrical components.

So, would you like to try time traveling in this tunnel in China? As for me, you ask? Well, I'm out of words…
