The timestamps starting at block 145044 are:

```

145045: 2011-09-12 16:05:07
145046: 2011-09-12 16:00:05 // ~5 minutes before prior block
145047: 2011-09-12 15:53:36 // ~7 & ~12 minutes before 2 prior blocks
145048: 2011-09-12 16:04:06 // after 2 prior blocks but still before 145045
```

How does this occur?
