What am I missing here

#Warning, the below is pseudo code, the conditionals are all that count

for column in Class.content_columns

column.type output: Time

column.klass output: Time

column.is_a?(Time) false
column.type.is_a?(Time) false
column.klass.is_a?(Time) false
column.type.kind_of?(Time) false
column.klass.kind_of?(Time) false
column.type == Time false

column.klass == Time true

I know I’m missing something obvious…but that’s a lot of “type
testing” and I can’t see for the life of me why column.klass == Time
evaluates to true when column.klass.kind_of or is_a? evaluates to false

First, Object#type is deprecated (use Object#class) instead. AR
overrides type to provied the active record type ie string, datetime
class gives you the actual class, on my machine I get something like

Secondly, assuming a.class == Time, why should a.class.kind_of?(Time) be
true ?
a.class is an instance of Class, not an instance of Time
