comment Orientability of spacetime
@Jerry, according to your analogy, it occurred to me that space, rather than time, is non-orientable... In the example of the Mobius strip, the "one-directioness" is perpendicular to the strip itself. Hence, it seems that for any scheme in which spacetime is foliated into space-like slices, the "one-directioness" of time (perpendicular to these slices) implies non-orientability of space... Isn't it?

comment Orientability of spacetime
This is the point which is not clear to me: Does the fact that time points always towards the future has no relevance whatsoever to its orientability?
