What kind of ninja skills allows for a user to post a question and have the timestamp appear later than when their profile says they were sighted?
How did this user post a question without being "seen"? Shouldn't any of the main actions (posting, commenting) update the last seen field in their account?

Last seen does not mean what you think it means.
It means the last interval check that was made; someone could have activity beyond that, up to the next interval check.
