What's with the Timey Wimey Stuff?

I got up, cut on my phone and did a quick perusal of some news aggregator sites as I ate breakfast..well..I tried to. 

All were blocked, due to invalid security certificates. Instapundit for instance gave an error message to the effect that the sites security certificate would not be active until March 2, 2008.
I then got an E-mail alert asking me to confirm my E-mail provider, which I did, at which point the phone started going crazy with incoming E-mails.Lots and LOTS of E-mails. Including very old ones and texts...including a tornado warning from 2016.

What's even worse, in the intervening hours evidence has strongly suggested that I am not actually in any position to warn people about and try to prevent all the horrible things that happened between March 2, 2008 and the time I went to bed. 

What nefarious experiments is Verizon conducting?

1 No, it really is 2008 again.  The next eight years are going to suck if this is a fixed-timeline scenario.

2 Is that why my hyperlinks don't insert?

4 "I then got an E-mail alert asking me to confirm my E-mail provider" - are you John Podesta?

5 If *everything* is screwed up like that it probably means the clock on your phone is off.  That's what was the case the last time I saw that happen.

Heh, no. It wasn't a notification sent by E-mail (which I ignore a lot of) it was a system notification about emails. It's a Blackberry thing where the phone asks if the user wants to still recieve from E-mail providers. It generally happens if one completely reboots the phone.
Incidentally, I did a complete reboot and now everything seems fine.
(I'll let y'all know if any guys in trenchcoats show up trying to sell  me drugs)
