Try setting back your hardware clock.  Since it's a read-only system there's no reason it should have saved that info anywhere.
If you must persist, I will be forced to tar you, then gzip you and finally umount you.

I've got to be honest, that was a pretty cruel prank. Manjaro did that non-sense too regarding only supporting ARM processors from 17.1 out, and I was not a happy camper. Wasn't until I did more research on that, then I found out the date and that it was an April fools joke. Not funny joking about dropping i686/x86_64 support.

This has to be the funniest April fool's day joke I've heard of this year
