This question already has an answer here:
I am often puzzled by the time indication on this platform
I asked a question yesterday and this morning I noticed that I asked it today:
Since it is already past midnight on the west coast in the US, this would only make sense if the Stack Exchange servers are in Hawaii.
At the same time I often also noticed that 1 hour lasts longer then an hour on my laptop or watch. This is specifically visible in chat, where you sometimes see asked 1 hours ago, while it is often already 2-3 hours later.
