It's as if the hash stored the Time objects and 'puts'ing the time causes the object to
[08:36:28] ruby-lang064: Ah, okay. Creating a gist now. thanks. The end of the message was "causes the object to return #now rather than the strings."

[08:46:42] ruby-lang064: I thought string would be a sure fire way to guard against that hunch
