What year is it – how to quickly figure out what year you’re in even if you’re a time traveler

by Jenna Questly

For real-time information on what year is it, it’s always best to check the date and time settings on your device or search “current year” on a search engine.

If the power is out and you can’t access a digital device to check the current year, you still have several options to find out:

  1. Ask Someone: The simplest and most straightforward method is to ask someone else. Even in a power outage, it’s likely that people around you will know the current year.
  2. Check Paper Materials: Look for a newspaper, magazine, or any other printed materials that might have a date on it. Even product packaging often has dates printed on it for production or expiration.
  3. Visit a Public Place: If possible, go to a public place such as a bank, post office, or government building. These places often have calendars or other materials with the current date.
  4. Listen to a Battery-Powered Radio: If you have a battery-powered or hand-cranked radio, you can tune in to a news station. They often mention the current date during broadcasts.
  5. Check a Car: Many cars have clocks that will continue to display the date and time even if the power is out elsewhere.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to have multiple ways to access important information like the date and time in case of emergencies.
